Types of Acne

What are the types of Acne Scarring?

Types of Acne

Ice Pick Scars

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 Scars

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.

Boxed Scars

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.

Hypertrophic/Keloid Scars

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.

Treatments Available

What treatments are available for Acne?

At Este Medical, we offer a range of expert quality, proven acne treatments for a variety of acne conditions. These include:

Skinrolla

Skinrolla is a simple, yet highly effective acne treatment that targets acne scarring. Your skincare specialist will use a small barrel-style roller with the finest, micro needles, to help boost collagen and elastin levels in the skin. Skinrolla stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself but does this without causing unnecessary damage to the surface layer of your skin.

Lightfusion™ Light Therapy

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

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.

Pixel Laser Resurfacing

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.

Your Este Medical skincare specialist will be able to advise you as to which acne treatment will be best for you. We understand that acne is often much more than just a skin problem, as the surrounding psychological factors that come into play when a person is dealing with acne can often become just as big – if not bigger – than the actual acne itself. Este Medical’s Director Sam went through this himself so understands how low it can make you feel. If you’re looking to change things and get help with your acne or acne scarring, get in touch with us today and begin your skin and confidence transformation.
