Acne Scaring

Scars can be caused by deep wounds or severe acne that has repeatedly damaged the same area of your skin over time. Depending on their age and severity, scars may appear as discoloured, raised skin, or ‘atrophic’ that cause the skin to dip inwards slightly.

After pores have become inflamed with excess oil, cellular debris and bacteria following an acne eruption, they then swell causing the follicle wall to become enlarged and even possibly break. Acne scarring can vary from mild to moderate and acne suffers are not always affected by scarring.


Types of acne scars:

Ice pick scars – small, deep holes in the surface of your skin that look like the skin has been punctured with a sharp object

Rolling scars – caused by bands of scar tissue that form under the skin, giving the surface of the skin a rolling and uneven appearance

Boxcar scars – round or oval depressions, or craters, in the skin

Acne scarring cannot always be prevented, but there are steps you can take to minimise the after-effects of acne, including:

•  Protecting your skin from sun exposure
•  Avoiding picking, squeezing, or scratching your acne
•  Seeking advice and professional treatments designed to target acne whilst it is active
•  Medication

Ecooner can help you understand your acne scarring and provide specific tailored skin package treatments 

Laser Treatments

IPixel ER:YAG 

IPixel laser provides a highly effective fractional ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment. IPixel significantly improves cell turn over, skin tone, elasticity, and texture. Improves the appearance of scarring by accelerating cell turnover using a very safe yet thermal affective heat.

RF Micro needling 

RF Micro needling is an amazingly effective and safe skin procedure at helping improve the appearance of scars. The small sterile encapsulated micro needles pierce the upper layer of skin causing skin trauma. The skin will recognise this and will start to renew itself by producing new elastin fibres and collagen. Skin will look smoother, tighter, and rejuvenated

All our Acne Scarring skin treatments are tailored as a skin package to give you the best skin you deserve.
