Acne Scars

Acne Scarring is a common skin condition and occurs as a complication of severe Acne.


Acne Scarring can occur from any type of Acne spot, however it is more common when the most serious types of spots (nodules and cysts) burst, damaging nearby skin. Scarring usually occurs if you pick or squeeze Acne, therefore it is important not to do this.

How can Aesthetics Of Liverpool help?

The good news is Acne Scars can be treated, at Aesthetics of Liverpool we offer treatment to safely reduce the appearance of Acne Scars and create a smooth complexion.

Treatments Available


Acne Scarring occurs as a result of cysts or nodules bursting which causes a break in the skins tissue. As the skin heals the body begins to produce more of a protein called Collagen. However due to the depth of the wounding the body begins to over produce Collagen which stays in place permanently creating Acne Scarring.
Sometimes Acne scarring can fade over a period of two years, however any scarring that remains after that time period is likely to be permanent.
The best type of treatment for you will be dependent on your skin type and the level of Acne Scarring you have. Prior to any treatment you will be invited to the Aesthetics Of Liverpool clinic where you will be able to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve, from this we will be able to recommend what treatment is suitable for you.
