Most people have at one point experienced acne which can lead to scars over time.
You can create scars by picking at spots and acne which is why this is never recommended and instead we recommend a warm compass to help relieve the spot.
Sometimes, however, you leave the spot alone and a scar can still develop as a complication, Scarring happens when your skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibres. These repairs usually aren’t as smooth and flawless as the original skin.
Any type of acne spot can cause scarring, but it’s more common with nodules and cysts as these are deeper forms of acne.
Acen scars can be distressing but we have a range of treatment options.
