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.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

Temporal Lift

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

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!

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
