Acne scars occur when an acne spot or cyst is picked or bursts and damages the skin.
About this condition
Acne scarring can take several different forms. ‘Box scars’ are usually round or oval in shape, ‘Ice Pick’ scars appear as small, deep V-shaped punctures and ‘Rolling Scars’ are usually wide depressions in the skin with softer, smoother edges. Depending on their severity, acne scars can appear unsightly and cause loss of self-esteem and self-confidence. Therefore many people come to us for treatment advice for this condition.
All scar types can be effectively treated and we offer a variety of different treatment options with recommendations tailored to your individual condition. These will be discussed with you at your consultation and may include skin resurfacing, microneedling, mesotherapy, dermal fillers, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and skin peels.
