Acne Scars

Pimples, blackheads, disgusting pus-filled acne breakouts are so frustrating but what’s more upsetting is the marks that they leave behind. Even though there are treatments available to get rid of the acne scars, you cannot really start those treatments until all your acne is cleared. Acne scars, like acne, are very stubborn and each person’s treatment requirement is different depending on the area of scarring, the intensity of scarring, size of scarring, etc.

What do acne scars look like?
Acne could leave behind reddish or brownish marks which usually slowly fade away. These blemishes and scars usually always appear if you try to remove a pimple or squeeze it. Acne scars could mainly fall in two categories:

Atrophic or depressed scarring: These scars appear when there is a loss of tissue, causing small holes in the skin or deep, angled depressions that are round or oval.

Keloid scarring: Keloid scarring, also known as hypertrophic scarring, causes bumps on the skin surface as a result of raised tissue appearing on the skin due to over-production of collagen when the acne is healing.

Depending on the type and severity of your acne scars, our experts will suggest a treatment plan that will work best for your skin type.
