Acne scars are permanent skin texture changes and indentations that occur as a result of severe acne. They arise due to the skin’s inflammatory response to acne lesions, such as pimples, cysts, or nodules. When the skin attempts to heal these lesions, it can produce too much collagen, leading to a raised scar, or too little, resulting in a depressed scar. Acne scars can vary in shape, size, and even color, and are usually a visible reminder of acne breakouts. They can occur anywhere on the body where acne is present but are most commonly found on the face.
Acne scars are primarily caused by severe acne breakouts, particularly those that affect deeper layers of the skin. When a breakout penetrates the skin deeply, it damages the tissue beneath, leading to a scar. The body tries to repair the damage by producing collagen. If the body produces excess collagen, a raised scar can form. Conversely, if not enough collagen is produced, the scar may be depressed or pitted. Other factors that can contribute to acne scarring include picking, popping, or squeezing acne, as these actions can increase inflammation and lead to deeper, more severe lesions. Genetic factors may also play a role, as some people may be more prone to acne scarring than others.
At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we offer various treatments to help reduce the appearance of acne scars. After determining the severity of your condition, we will suggest non-invasive procedures like IPL Photofacial, laser treatments, etc. Here are some of our top procedures:
I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.
Anytime I consider getting a procedure done I do extensive research online. Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa looked like a high end medical spa with very good reviews. So I decided to do under eye filler with them. Dr. Murad was very good at the injection and patient as well. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Thanks!
