Acne is an annoyance in the lives of many people, especially in our teenage years.

Sometimes acne can be so aggressive that scarring occurs which can be particularly distressing when this appears on the face, knocking our confidence.

Acne is caused by skin pores filling with excess material such as oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. When this happens the pore itself can become swollen and cause a break in the follicle wall.

Usually, these small breaks heal fairly quickly, but if the break in the wall is particularly deep then the infected fluid can leak out onto the surrounding skin resulting in deeper lesions.

The body attempts to fix this by producing new collagen fibres. Unfortunately, the body cannot create tissue that is as smooth as the original skin, and so scar tissue is formed – resulting in acne scarring.

Here at Chic, we have two specific procedures that can help to significantly reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

For more information on these treatments please take a look at our suggested solutions below.

Micro Skin Needling

Superfine needles puncture the skin to deliver a special radio frequency deep within your skin for collagen regeneration and elastin production.

Genesis Rejuvenation

Using non-erosive light, the treatment targets damaged skin tissue and hypermigmentation without harming healthy cells.
