Acne scarring

Acne scars can be a lifelong reminder of a teenage skin condition. Acne scars occur as the skin heals from the pimples, blackheads and whiteheads that form when oil, bacteria and dead cells get stuck below the skin's surface, causing acne breakouts. Acne scars can be typically shaped as indented marks or raised, red areas on the skin that sometimes give the it a wavy or mottled appearance.

Acne scarring

There are different types of acne scars –

  • Ice pick scars – Small sharp indentations which narrow at the base of the skin.
  • Boxcar scars – round or oval depressions with steep vertical sides.
  • Rolling scars – these scars cause rolling or wave-like depressions across the skin.
  • Atrophic – indented scars that form underneath the normal layers of the skin.
  • Hypertrophic or keloid scars – Bumpy, raised and sometimes red scars caused by the over-production of collagen.

At Dr. MediSpa in Loughton and London’s Harley Street, we offer a wide-range of highly-effective treatments to smooth out acne scarring so you can finally be free of the reminder of acne.
