Acne Scarring


Acne scarring manifests as permanent depressions or raised areas on the skin’s surface, typically in areas where severe acne breakouts occurred. These scars can be discoloured and affect the skin’s texture.

What causes it

Acne scarring is the result of tissue damage during the inflammatory response to severe or improperly treated acne lesions. The body’s attempt to repair this damage can lead to the formation of scar tissue. The type and severity of scarring can vary based on individual factors and the specific characteristics of the acne lesions. Early intervention and proper acne management can help minimize scarring.
