Acne Scarring Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

What are Acne Scars?

Acne scarring is a direct complication of acne, a debilitating skin condition where hair follicles become clogged up with oils and dead skin. Acne scars are the permanent textural scars left over from a severe bout of acne. They appear as small physical indentations or craters across the skin, giving it an uneven and damaged appearance.

What causes Acne Scars?

If a patient suffers from acne spots, then these can directly cause acne scars if they burst and damage the skin. This situation is more common when severe types of acne spots such as nodules and cysts start to burst. Acne scarring can also occur if spots are picked or squeezed, so it is highly advisable to avoid doing this.

Do Acne Scars go away naturally?

The answer to this question depends on the severity of your acne scar. If the acne scar is shallow and flush to the skin’s surface, and discolouration is the main issue, then this type of acne scar tends to fade on its own over time, as the skin naturally heals itself. However, deeper acne scars can leave the skin looking irregular as depressed pockets form and craters develop due to the severe nature of the burst cyst or nodule. In these instances, we need to renew and remodel the skin from deep underneath to restore supportive collagen stores and level out the sunken skin depressions.

How to remove Acne Scars

When it comes to removing acne scars, a range of non-invasive treatments like lasers and micro-needling are clinically proven to be effective at visibly minimising acne scar skin damage. Treatments for acne scarring are typically not available on the NHS as they are regarded as a purely cosmetic concern in most cases. However, we offer a wide range of proven non-surgical treatments that can help you to get rid of acne scars for good. During your initial consultation, we will assess the nature of your acne scarring before suggesting the best treatment to suit your individual needs.
