Acne & Acne Scarring

Tired Of Dealing With Acne and/or Scarring?

Acne breakouts can be frustrating, and they can also leave scars on the face and other areas of the body. Some people find that acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. Acne is a widespread skin issue. It generally begins during puberty, when sex hormones cause changes in the body. While acne may taper off as the body adjusts to these sex hormones, acne can persist into adulthood.

How Does It Develop?

Acne can occur at any time, so knowing the root cause for your skin type is essential. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy can cause unsolicited breakouts. Along with this, using oral contraceptives, family genetics, a poor diet, and certain medicines containing testosterone, lithium, or corticosteroids can worsen breakouts. Trying to pinpoint what is causing you to break out can be tricky. What will help explore your family history and eating habits when you come for your consultation with our team. This way, we can provide you with the best information to help get rid of any current acne and help prevent future breakouts.

Types Of Acne Scars 

Suitable treatment options may vary slightly depending on the type of scarring that acne has caused. At West Coast Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer various treatments to help you get rid of unwanted acne and scars for good. There are three types of acne scars:

  • Atrophic scars: These scars appear as small indentations in the skin. They occur when the skin does not make enough fibroblasts in the healing process. Fibroblasts are cells that play a crucial role in wound healing and collagen synthesis.
  • Hypertrophic scars: These occur when the skin makes too many fibroblasts as the acne spot heals, causing a raised scar.
  • Keloid scars: These are similar to hypertrophic scars but are typically much thicker than the original acne spot. They are usually darker than the surrounding skin and can be red or brown. Keloid scars may also cause symptoms, such as itchiness or pain.
