Surgical or Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
March 1, 2021
Ice pick acne scars are often narrow, but ‘dig’ deep – usually reaching past the top levels of the skin’s surface. This type of scarring is one of the most common types, along with Boxed scarring.
Rolling scarring causes the skin to have an undulating appearance. This is due to damage beneath the skin’s surface. Rolling scars are usually shallow but wide.
Similar to ice pick scarring in the fact that they are also common, these scars are wider and feature well-defined edges. They appear more oval in shape.
Raised, and firm to touch, hypertrophic scarring is most commonly seen on the back and chest. However, it can also be found on the face and neck. Keloid scars are a form of hypertrophic scarring, and they can both get smaller over time.
If you have active acne you’ll know how hard it is to get rid of. You think you’ve just managed to clear one breakout, when another one magically appears. It’s infuriating, and it seems like a never-ending cycle. Time for lightfusion™ Light Therapy. This acne treatment is based on Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT) and it targets the bacteria that causes acne breakouts. By killing the bacteria that is responsible for acne, your skin is given a chance to clear and heal and the cycle of acne breakouts stops.
Skin peels can be effective in the treatment of both acne and acne scarring and at Este Medical we provide a selection of skin peels for different skin types, tones, and to target different conditions. Skin peels work to safely resurface the skin and encourage cells to regenerate. We recommend skin peels for both mild to moderate acne and also to help tackle long-lasting acne scarring.
If you want an acne treatment that can truly focus on just the acne scars, why not consider pixel laser resurfacing? This treatment is ideal for acne scars as it promotes collagen production below the skin to work towards filling in any depressions caused by acne scarring. It targets the acne scars and does not affect the surrounding skin.

Acne can be caused by a number of factors and it can vary from person to person. Acne can be hereditary, hormonal, caused by a testosterone increase during puberty, and it is also possible for acne to be caused by certain medications, some makeup products, and even items of clothing or accessories that place pressure on a specific area of the skin. Smoking is also said to cause acne in older people.
Whatever the underlying reasons as to why you have acne, it all results in one thing – hair follicles becoming blocked by sebum from surrounding sebaceous glands, and dead skin cells. These plugged hair follicles can either turn into whiteheads or blackheads, and if the (usually) harmless bacteria that lives on our skin then infects the follicles, you may even experience cysts, papules, nodules or pustules. If you are dealing with any of these acne issues, get in touch with us today to discover our great range of acne scar treatment in Nottingham.
Our acne dermatologist in Nottingham takes time to get to know and understand your acne concerns and issues, and only then will they make an informed decision as to which acne treatment is the best for you. That could be:
No, you don’t need to stop wearing makeup if you have acne. However, you should wear makeup that is non-comedogenic. This means that it doesn’t block the pores. You can try mineral-based makeups too.
Not necessarily. As mentioned above, the occurrence of acne can be down to a number of factors, and sometimes, cleaning your face too much can even contribute to acne as it can aggravate spots and dry out skin causing hair follicles to become even more clogged.
Furthermore, using alcohol-based cleansers can dry your skin out and this isn’t a good thing as far as acne is concerned. Despite what you may think, and even if you feel like you have excessively oily skin, it’s still important to use a moisturiser – just make sure you opt for a non-comedogenic one. We will be able to discuss the best options for acne scar treatment in Nottingham at your appointment.
Everyone is different, but acne – more often than not – does eventually go away. For many, it’s puberty that can kick things off and acne often settles down when puberty does. However, acne can sometimes persist into your adult years.
