Acne Scarring

Smooth, Scar-Free Skin - Acne Scarring Solutions

Acne Scarring, a lasting aftermath of severe or prolonged acne, presents various types and causes. These scars result from the body's response to inflammation and tissue damage caused by acne. Inflammatory acne, like cysts and pustules, can cause atrophic or hypertrophic scars. Picking or squeezing acne lesions can worsen inflammation and scarring, especially 'ice pick' scars.

Genetics and skin type may influence scarring susceptibility, with fair-skinned individuals at risk for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Additionally, the location of acne lesions on less-supported areas of the body increases the risk of scarring.

Prevention and effective acne management are crucial for minimizing scarring risk. Various treatments can improve the appearance of acne scars, and at Optima Medical, we specialize in addressing this concern.
