Scar report

Acne scars are permanent textural changes and indentations that occur on the surface and underlying layers of the skin as a result of severe acne.

The scars are formed when damage occurs at the the deep layer of skin called the dermis. To repair the damage done, our skin begins to form new collagen fibres.

Unfortunately, the skin doesn’t look as smooth and flawless as before the injury. The replacement fibres have a different texture and quality compared to the tissue surrounding the area. This is what forms the scar.

Age: 32
Treatment target: Depressed acne scars

The objective of treatment for this patient was to reduce the appearance of the acne scars located on his forehead and cheeks.

The patient first attended the clinic presenting with deep depressed scars on his forehead and both cheeks. Consultation revealed that he had suffered from acne in his teenage years.

After the first two weeks of treatment, the redness of the scarring had reduced. Two weeks later, the redness had reduced even further and the appearance of the scars had begun to fade. At the end of five weeks, the scaring was very minimal and hardly visible, and his complexion was smooth, even and balanced.

Five weeks of treatment reduced this patient’s pitted, bumpy and discoloured skin to a point where he felt comfortable and confident leaving the house. His even, bright and glowing complexion gave him confidence in his skin that he’s always lacked.
