When bacteria develop within acne blemishes, the body naturally releases antibodies (via white blood cells) as a natural form of self-defense. These antibodies enter clogged follicles and destroy any bacteria present. While eliminating bacteria, these antibodies can inflame and damage the surrounding skin. Visible skin depressions and pigmentation changes that characterize acne scarring are left behind. Scars from acne are more severe in people with weakened immune systems or a history of scarring.
Murall Clinic helps patients with acne scars find the right solution to their needs while also taking their personal preferences and budget into account. Before recommending the best way to get rid of acne scars for you, our doctor ensures that any active acne has been addressed first. Your skin type and condition are assessed; then an acne scar removal treatment regimen is formulated that incorporates one or more methods of treatment in order to most effectively reduce or eliminate scarring. The length of your regimen and treatment method depends on the type of acne scar(s) you may have. Please note that severe scars may require a more extensive regimen.
