Acne Scarring

A common concern that arises from having suffered from acne, is acne scarring. When breakouts of this inflammatory condition penetrate the tissue beneath the skin, it causes damage from which a scar can form. When the body works to repair a wound, it knits the skin back together with collagen. The collagen has a different tone and texture to that of skin, which contributes to the difference in appearance to that of the skin that surrounds it.

Acne scars can appear as depressions in the skin (Atrophic), or slightly raised from the skin’s surface (Hypertrophic). Atrophic scarring is most likely to affect the face and results from not enough collagen being made when the wound is healing. This type of scarring can appear as: rolling scars - quite wide in diameter, they can give the skin an uneven surface, giving a rolling effect; ice pick scars - small round or oval holes that go quite deep into the skin, often the most difficult to treat due to how far they descend into the skin; and boxcar scars - wide u-shaped scars that have sharp edges and can vary in depth.
If scarring affects the chest and back, it is most likely that this will be hypertrophic scarring. This type of raised scarring sits slightly higher than the skin’s surface itself and is the cause of too much collagen being produced during the healing process.

Acne scarring can be the cause of much frustration. Thankfully The Light Touch Clinic has a variety of treatment options available, which can make them less noticeable, including: dermal fillers, facial fillers, facials, Tixel skin rejuvenation, Intracel and IPL. Before considering treatment, it is important to ensure that acne has cleared up and is unlikely to return. The Light Touch Clinic will conduct a full assessment during a pre-treatment consultation, which will determine the type of scarring that you have and the approach that will need to be taken to improve the texture of the skin.
