Causes & Symptoms of Acne Scars

Scars can be caused by deep wounds or severe acne that has repeatedly damaged the same area of your skin over time. Depending on their age and severity, scars may appear as discoloured, raised skin, or ‘atrophic’ that cause the skin to dip inwards slightly.

In the case of acne scars, the bacteria and dead skin cells cause your pores to become inflamed and eventually break. When wounded, your skin will be triggered to jump start the collagen production to restore the damaged cells, however in cases of bad acne it might need additional help to go back to its original condition.

There are two main types of acne scars: ‘hypertrophic’ and ‘atrophic’ acne scars. Hypertrophic scarring can occur when your skin produces too much collagen to fill the wound, so you’re left with a slightly raised area on the surface of your skin. Atrophic scarring can be caused by a loss of tissue beneath the surface, which the body cannot replace. Therefore, the acne scars give your skin a dimpled appearance.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should you avoid?

One of the most common pieces of advice is, of course, not to squeeze any spots that develop in order to avoid being left with acne scars. What might seem like just a little harmless pop here and there in order to reduce the appearance of spots faster might actually force the infected material within the pimple further down into your skin, increasing the likelihood of a scar developing due to damaged cells.

How well do acne scar treatments work?

With a personalised treatment regime, it’s possible to drastically reduce the appearance of scarring, although the final results will vary from person to person depending on the severity of your scarring. Our Treatment Coordinators will device a personalised treatment plan according to your skin’s needs to ensure you achieve optimum results.

After suffering with severe digestive problems for many years, I decided to book a course of hydrotherapy treats at EE Medispa in Chelsea. Having never had this treatment I was quite nervous but the staff and my practitioner Victoria made the whole process very comfortable. I have now been seeing Victoria for regular sessions for about two months and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I have completely changed my diet and the process of detoxification has helped me eliminate everything that was causing me to feel so unwell for many years. I would highly recommend this service to anyone with digestive issues. I am now on my second course of treatments and continue to see great results. This is one of the best investments in my health I have ever made. Thank you so much Victoria! : )

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Jennifer Burton

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

I had Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy. I was immediately at ease with Victoria, she was both friendly and professional. I wasn't sure what to expect with this treatment but within a few minutes of it starting I was already in an extremely relaxed, almost meditative state. It was like being transported into a zone between asleep and awake where you are totally at calm - thoughts can enter your mind but you just let them float away. Afterwards I felt as though I had been asleep for a hours, I was relaxed but also rejuvenated. I would highly recommend trying this!

I had the Colonic; Victoria thoroughly explained every part of the procedure, which made for a relaxing experience. I can’t wait to come back again!

Colonic Irrigation

Victoria floats in, complete with bangles and maxiskirt, far from the overall-clad dominatrix I had envisaged. The consultation and treatment explanation are extensive but reassuring and by the time I am gowned up on the bed, I’d honestly trust her with my life. The process is much more civilised than you’d think. Within four sessions, my eyes are brighter, my skin is clearer and I have the energy of a five-year old on a sugar high. The difference is astounding.”

Victoria is incredibly nice about what must be one of the world’s least appealing jobs…I feel so slim, spritely and ready for a dance with John Travolta
