Acne Scarring

Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the dermis brought on by acne. The scar is created by the wound trying to heal itself resulting in too much collagen in one spot. Physical acne scars are often referred to as “ice pick” scars. This is because the scars tend to cause an indentation in the skin’s surface. There is a range of treatments available. Although quite rare, the medical condition atrophia maculosa varioliformis cutis also results in “acne-like” depressed scars on the face.

What are ice pick scars?

Ice pick scars are the deep pits, that are the most common and a classic sign of acne scarring.

What are box car scars?

Box car scars are angular scars that usually occur on the temple and cheeks, and can be either superficial or deep, these are similar to chickenpox scars.

What are rolling scars?

Rolling scars are scars that give the skin a wave-like appearance.

What are hypertrophic scars?

Hypertrophic scars are thickened, or keloid scars.

What are pigmented scars?

Pigmented scars is a slightly misleading term, as it suggests a change in the skin’s pigmentation and that they are true scars; however, neither is true. Pigmented scars are usually the result of nodular or cystic acne (the painful ‘bumps’ lying under the skin). They often leave behind an inflamed red mark. Often, the pigmentation scars can be avoided simply by avoiding aggravation of the nodule or cyst. Pigmentation scars nearly always fade with time taking between three months to two years to do so, although they can last indefinitely if untreated.

Reviews

Nahnay,Leeds
Suffering from acne since starting puberty at 11. I persevered with many treatment, pill and washes from doctors, which miserably failed. I finally discovered Lindsey’s miracle treatments. Although I was dubious that this would not work as nothing else has before now, I was willing to try anything. She recommended I have medical microdermabrasion and skin peels to shift the acne, she also suggested I use a dermaroller therapy to treat the scaring left from years of picking and squeezing. I know that without this treatment I would still be going round in circles with prescriptions and high street products which just made things worse for me, my only regret is not finding out about this earlier. Now I am so glad to have finally got clear face and my confidence back, at last I feel like a women and not a spotty teen any more. I am thankful to Lindsey for her care, she made my number one wish come true.

Sarah, Leeds
I have visited many skin clinics over the years with my problematic skin ( acne ) on each and every occasion they have tried to sell me unsuitable products and treatments rather than trying to help me control my skin. Lindsey has not only been extremely helpful and knowledgeable but will also only ever advise on products and treatment that will benefit my skin rather than a hard sell. Not only would I recommend this clinic to others but will not use any other clinic in the future. It makes a refreshing change to know there are still clinics out that that care about customers rather than just wanting to sell products and treatments that are unsuitable

Laura, Leeds
I came to the clinic to see Lindsey after suffering from acne for 13years! I didn’t even like taking my make up off! She made me feel really relaxed! After regular microderm sessions my skin is amazing! My confidence has soared and I am happy to go without makeup! Microderm will be a part of my skincare routine forever!
