Acne scars are a frequent outcome for people who suffer from acne and affect 30% of those with moderate or severe acne. Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring, although scarring is more common when acne is moderate or severe. It is caused due to the body’s response to the inflammation caused by acne – new collagen is laid down to heal the injury creating scar tissue and post-inflammatory colour changes occur due to the inflammation associated with acne.
There are a number of effective professional skin treatments designed to diminish the appearance of scars and acne scars like: Medical Skin Peels, Mesotherapy, Microneedling with or without Profhilo®, and for slightly larger or bigger scars: Viscoderm Hydrobooster or even Dermal Fillers.
