Acne Scar Reduction

When untreated acne penetrates deeply into the skin, it can damage the underlying skin and the tissue. As acne is treated or when it clears, the body tries to repair the damage left behind.

During this healing process, the fibroblasts in the dermis (second layer of skin) produce a substance called collagen.

Collagen acts as the framework, providing support to the epidermis (top layer of skin).

The incorrect amount of collagen in the wrong area will potentially create a scar and unevenness to the skin.

There are two main types of scars, each depends on how much collagen your body makes:

  • Raised (Hypertrophic): raised bumps caused by too much collagen and are most common on the shoulders, upper back and chest, and in people with darker skin types
  • Depressed (Atrophic): Are the most common type and are caused when not enough collagen is produced.

Atrophic scars are further subdivided into:

  • Icepick – narrow v-shaped scars extending deep into the dermis
  • Rolling – wide and shallow scars
  • Boxcar – similar to icepick scars but the same width from top to bottom

It was so great to back in to see Sally yesterday! I had a much needed brow wax and tint (overhaul!) and a pigmentation laser treatment. As usual Sally delivered amazing results and her attention to detail was exceptional! I'm so happy and highly recommend Sally and her wonderful team.
