For many men and women, the effects of acne linger long after their active blemishes have cleared up. Acne scarring is an embarrassing skin condition that can detract from both your overall appearance and feelings of self-confidence. At Marcus Medical Spa, we are experts at administering customized treatments to help our clients eliminate unsightly acne scars for good, revealing the smooth and clear skin they’ve always wanted.

What causes acne scars?

To understand what causes acne scars to form, we first need to understand how acne develops. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become clogged with oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. When acne penetrates deep into the skin, it can damage the tissue beneath it. As your acne clears up, your body then tries to repair the damage the blemish has done by producing collagen. However, if your body produces too much or too little collagen, a scar will form. These are the two types of acne scars that may develop:

Hypertrophic scars

When your body produces too much collagen during the healing process, hypertrophic scarring occurs. These scars are marked by raised bumps or ridges on the skin.

Atrophic scars

Atrophic scars are depressed areas of skin where live acne used to occur. Common forms include “ice pick” scars that look like tiny holes in the skin, and “boxcar” scars that are large and resemble the scars that develop after the chicken pox.

Depending on the type and severity of the scars present, as well as your unique skin condition, we will advise on which of the best scar treatments Los Angeles has available will most effectively eliminate your scarring and achieve the beautiful skin you deserve.
