Acne Scarring & Blemishes

Acne scarring often occurs with severe cases of acne. The reason for this is due to damaged and broken skin creating scars within the dermis, which is the deep, thick layer of the skin. Our bodies are clever, however, in that we can form new collagen fibres (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. There are several treatments available that can assist and encourage this natural process. Scars form after a wound is completely healed, so if you want to prevent or eliminate the appearance of scarring, it is advised that you having a treatment that encourages the repair of scarring or blemishes as soon as the wound or damage has healed. New scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Over time and with the correct skin care and interventions, this can look similar to the surrounding tissue and less obvious.
