Acne and acne scars can affect more than just your skin, studies have demonstrated that acne has a negative effect on self-esteem among patients of all age groups. Women and those with severe acne/acne scars are the groups whose self-confidence are the most affected.
Severe acne or acne scars are hard to cover up with traditional make-up and there aren’t many alternatives strong enough to fight scars. If the condition has been affecting your self-esteem and confidence, you should seek medical advice from your Aesthetic Doctor.
If Acne is not well taken care of, acne bacteria can proliferate unchecked, leading to prolonged inflammation and breakdown of collagen fibres, resulting in acne scars. By reducing the acne bacteria in the skin, the acne can heal faster, and the risk of a scar forming is very much reduced.

What is an acne scar?
There are several types of acne scars
Icepick scars – Steep and narrow scars
indents or divots that appear in the skin as a result of your skin losing collagen. The skin above the affected areas actually collapses and leaves what appears to be a hole.
Boxcar scars – Broad, with steep edges resulting in a rectangular depression.
similar to rolling scars, but these are characterised by shallow and sharper edges. These scars are a result of scar tissue being pulled down into the skin.
Rolling Scars – Sloping shape broad depressions.
areas that appear as wavy due to inflammatory acne. These scars can become more apparent as your skin loses its natural elasticity.
discoloured, bumpy, and raised areas of the skin that are a result of your body producing too many cells when healing.
Not technically a scar, but very dark areas left behind by severe acne. Hyperpigmentation is a result of an overproduction of melanin in the affected area.
Different technology is required for different types of acne and acne scars.
