Introduction to acne scarring

Acne scars treatments are regarded as cosmetic in Britain, and are largely unavailable on the NHS. It is estimated that 80% of people aged 11-30 will be affected by acne, mainly coming into fruition during puberty and pregnancy due to changes in hormones. When the acne has subsided, sometimes the scars from spots or picking can remain, leaving crater-like dimples or lumps and bumps. This is usually the case if you scratch or pick your spots whilst the acne is still active.

Factors to consider with Acne Scars

A lot of teenagers who suffer with acne are prescribed medication to clear the spots, but can then neglect to treat the acne scars which are left as a result. It is best to treat acne scars when they are still fresh and have not matured. If scars are left untreated, they can be more stubborn and more difficult to treat later on.

Different types of scarring may be present in the same person and different types of scarring respond better to different types of treatment. Therefore, it is common for one person to need a combination of treatments or procedures.
