Acne Scarring 

 

Acne scars are extremely common, and are a possible after-effect if you have ever suffered from acne. If spots have ever made an appearance on your skin, whether in your teenage years or in adult life, acne scars can linger, even after spots have healed. Scarring like this is often very visible, and it can be tricky to cover.

Each year, at Transform, we get hundreds of enquiries from people asking how to get rid of acne scars. Read on to see if the microneedling or skin peel acne scar treatments that we offer at Transform could be right for you.

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars can be a side effect of acne - inflamed spots caused by pores blocked by excess sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria. If, when a spot occurs, there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out, resulting in deeper lesions. Your skin tries to repair these deep lesions by creating new collagen fibres – and these frequently are not as smooth as the original skin. These imperfect repairs are the acne scars that deep-seated acne often leaves behind.

Acne scars can affect anyone who has suffered with acne – whether in their teenage years or as an adult. Although it might be popularly thought that acne scars affect teenagers, in reality, they can happen to anyone of any age who has struggled with spots.

Constantly thinking of ways to cover their acne scars can be annoying and stressful for sufferers. Many people opt for cosmetic acne scar treatments to minimise scarring and feel more comfortable with their skin.

How to get rid of acne scars

People living with acne scars often choose to cover them with makeup, but this process can be irritating and time consuming. Many sufferers opt for cosmetic acne scar treatments like the following to minimise the appearance of acne scars:

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that removes dead skin cells, and improves the appearance of skin texture. It can be effective in reducing the appearance of acne scarring.

Laser treatments

Laser treatments for acne scarring essentially burns the face to create a new skin surface. Treatment often takes place over a period of months to create more radiant skin with less apparent acne scarring.

Microneedling

Involving the creation of micro-channels or tiny holes in the skin using small needles, and the application of a topical skin solution, microneedling (also known as dermarollers) can encourage the stimulation of collagen and elastin production in the skin. This increase in the production of collagen and elastin can improve skin look and feel, reducing the appearance of acne scarring.

Skin peels

Using facial peels as an acne scar treatment involves what is essentially an accelerated form of exfoliation through the application of Glycolic and TCA peels. This is an extremely popular procedure here at Transform to improve skin look and feel.
