How acne scarring occurs
Acne is extremely common. Unfortunately – and particularly in more severe cases – acne often leaves scarring behind. Scars can also be caused by squeezing, scratching or picking at spots. We have seen that the greater the severity and longer the inflammation process with the acne is, the greater the chance of scarring. Over the long term, acne inflammation not only damages the sebaceous glands, but also the connective tissue, collagen, elastin and capillaries.
Over the past 40 years, we have been able to treat a vast number of people for scarring. Whilst everyone is unique, they all have a shared goal: healthy-looking skin. Our treatments achieve just that.
