ACNE SCARS

WHAT ARE ACNE SCARS?

Acne scars are permanent irregularities on the surface of skin resulting from inflammatory changes caused by acne.

During the course of active acne and its subsequent healing response, there is destruction of normal collagen and the formation of abnormal collagen fibers. This may result in eventual formation of indentations on the skin surface, or less commonly, raised bumps and ridges. The likelihood of scar formation tends to correlate with the severity of acne.

HYPERTROPHIC SCARS

Raised, often with associated discoloration. Keloids are a less common form of hypertrophic scars that further extend beyond the margins of the initial wound.

Distinct from true acne scarring, there are also other skin changes associated with acne. Post-inflammatory erythema is persistent redness of the involved area due to blood vessel changes and thinning of the skin. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is darkening of the skin due to increased melanin production as part of the healing response.

It is crucial to accurately identify the different types of scars because the most effective treatments for each type of scar will vary. Understanding the stage or severity of your scars will help you to determine which type of treatment will be more effective to get rid of them.

Treatments

Acne scar treatment entails effective acne control to minimise formation of new scars. All acne scar treatments should be individualised depending on the type of scars and their location. Often, it is beneficial to combine more than one type of treatment as a multi-modal approach to correct different aspects of acne scarring.

ACNE SCAR TREATMENT | RESURFACING

Resurfacing treatments improve acne scars byrestoring healthy collagen production in the affected areas.

ACNE SCAR TREATMENT | INJECTABLES

Certain injectables can be used to lift and volumise areas of collagen loss.
