Scarring is one of the most difficult and lasting effects acne sufferers have to deal, and they can find it extremely challenging.

The visible scars can cause low self-esteem and depending on the severity of the scarring, can be very difficult to cover up or disguise.

Acne scarring can vary from mild to severe, with in many instances leaving deep pocket or crater-like scars on the skin.

Squeezing or picking at acne blemishes will dramatically increase the likelihood of developing scars. Even minimal pressure or touching of the skin can lead to some scarring; such is the severity of acne.

Treatments to Help Reduce Appearance of Acne Scarring

There are dermatological treatments available to help minimise or significantly reduce acnes scars depending on factors such as:

  • Severity of scarring
  • Type of scar
  • Restrictions due to medications or individual aspects such as age and medical history

Some of the procedures for acne scarring include:

  • Dermabrasion
  • Chemical Peels
  • Collagen Injections
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Phototherapy

Along with a detailed and specifically tailored skin care regimen, Cosmetic Doctor can help ensure that your acne scarring is minimised, working towards the goal of a rejuvenated, vibrant and clear complexion.
