Non-Surgical Treatments for Acne Scars
We offer effective non-surgical acne scar treatment in Glasgow at our cosmetic clinic
Active acne can be one of the most distressing dermatological conditions to suffer from. This is all the more reason that we shouldn’t let ourselves be haunted by the aftermath — acne scarring.
Acne typically affects younger men and women during puberty, at a time when they are looking to find a partner, which can be particularly distressing psychologically because of the effect it has on their confidence. However, although it is often associated with adolescents, it can also relatively commonly affect older adults.
Unfortunately, about 1 of every 5 people with acne will develop acne scarring thereafter. In these cases, acne scarring is the result of inflammation of acne blemishes – this is what causes skin damage. When there is a loss of tissue, an indentation scar forms on the skin’s surface; but when there is too much collagen production for scar tissue in the repair process, raised scars can form on the top layer of skin instead.
