What Are Acne Scars?
Even after acne symptoms clear up, there may still be some discolouration or scarring left behind by those symptoms. That is known as Acne Scarring.
Acne Scarring may range from mild “scarring” such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which refers to red or brown discoloured spots, to depressed scars, which are usually grouped into three categories, boxcar scars, icepick scars and rolling scars.
Acne scarring usually comes in a combination of scar types. At our clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options to provide the most suitable plan for your unique skin condition.
Peels exfoliate the surface of the skin, which helps to improve skin texture, fill in depressed scars and clear pigmentation from within.
Chemical peels cause the top layers of the epidermis to peel off, boosting cell turnover and renewal rate.
Carbon Laser peels remove debris and oil within the skin and stimulate collagen production.
Scar subcision is often used to help lift scars by boosting collagen and loosening scar tissue.
How Do Dermal Filler Injections Work?
Dermal filler injections raise the scar from within while promoting collagen production.
