What Causes Acne Scarring?

Your body naturally responds to acne inflammation, laying down new collagen to heal the injury and create scar tissue. Acne scars (and other atrophic scars) occur when skin tissue is damaged and replaced with fibrous tissue because the body doesn’t make enough new collagen during the healing process. Understanding what causes acne scarring can help you prevent it. Causes of acne scarring include:

  • Severe Acne – Deep, inflammatory acne is more likely to cause scarring. Nodules or cysts penetrate deeply into the skin, affecting the surface and the tissues beneath, leading to more significant damage and scarring.
  • Picking & Squeezing – Squeezing, picking or forcefully removing acne blemishes can cause further inflammation and skin damage. This increases the likelihood of scarring by interrupting the natural healing process.
  • Delayed Treatment – Not treating acne or delaying treatment can allow acne to worsen and increase the risk of scarring. Early treatment of acne, especially the more severe forms, can help minimise the risk of scars forming.
  • Genetics – Individuals with a family history of acne scarring may be more prone to experience scarring themselves. Genetics can affect how one’s skin heals and may determine the likelihood of scar formation after acne.

Acne Scar Treatment Offered in Our Wakefield Clinic

If acne scarring is a concern, you can count on Elevate Medical Aesthetics to personalise an acne scar treatment plan for your needs. We may suggest a combination of the following treatment options:

  • Dermapen – This innovative micro-needling therapy uses tiny needles to puncture the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process and collagen and elastin production. Micro-needling can effectively smooth and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of acne and acne scars. We recommend six treatments spaced apart for 4-6 weeks for optimal results.
  • Chemical Peels – Chemical peels apply a chemical solution to a targeted area to promote the growth of new, healthier skin cells to replace the old, scarred tissue. This treatment can help minimise the depth and appearance of acne scars while improving skin texture and clearing clogged pores. Depending on your needs, chemical peels range in intensity from mild to deep.
  • Cosmelan Peels – For deep acne scars, we may recommend cosmelan, a premium chemical peel that comes with a home pack. Like other chemical peels, the chemical solution promotes new, healthy skin growth. Cosmelan includes a facial peel, followed by a home treatment that helps your skin heal properly.
