A scar is a mark that is left on the skin after an injury or wound has healed. A scar forms when the thicker, inner layer of skin called the dermis, receives damage. It is important to remember that scars may never be able to be removed completely, but we can definitely help them to appear less visible. One of the main types of scarring we see within the clinic is acne scarring. According to the British Skin Foundation, 28% of the UK population suffers with acne and 95% of acne sufferers say it impacts their daily lives. There are different types of acne scarring;
· Macular Scars – Darker patches of pigment on the skin where the acne formed
· Box Scars – Round scars with steep sides, caused by acne but resemble chicken pox
· Rolling Scars – Caused by damage underneath the skin this type of scarring is wide and shallow
· Ice Pick Scars – Deep and very narrow this type of scar can resemble large open pores
