Acne scarring: Who gets it and why

What causes acne?

When it comes to knowing why you develop acne scarring, the first thing you need to understand is why acne starts in the first place.

Acne starts when your sebaceous glands, which sit below the skin’s surface, start to produce too much oil or sebum. When this happens, the oil can mix with dead skin cells and clog your hair follicles. As a result, spots such as whiteheads form.

A few spots here and there are not the same as acne. When bacteria that sits on the skin’s surface goes into the follicles and blocks your pores, acne starts to appear. This usually looks like puss-filled pimples or bumps on your skin. 

When dead skin cells and oil build up in your pores over time, you can develop severe acne such as pustules, nodules and cysts. People who suffer from more severe acne may tend to go on a course of acne treatment or prescription medication such as Isotretinoin capsules.

What causes acne scarring?

Not all acne will lead to scars. It is hard to predict whether you are more likely to suffer from acne scarring or not. You have a higher chance of seeing acne scars form if:

·       You have inflammatory acne which tends to damage the skin

·       You do not seek acne treatment for inflammatory acne

·       You pick or squeeze your acne

·       You have a relative who also suffers from acne scarring

There are also different forms of acne scars, some of which are more difficult to treat than others. The most common types include:

·      Keloid scars

·      Atrophic scars

·      Hypertrophic scars

·      Boxcar scars

·      Ice pick scars

·      Rolling scars

If you’re not sure what type of scars you have and what the best acne scar removal treatment is for you, start by booking a consultation with our team. 

What is the best acne scar treatment in Bradford?

When you attend your initial consultation at MySkyn Clinic in Bradford, we will talk you through our range of scar removal treatments. These include acne laser treatment for scars, skin peels and microneedling. 

Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a great treatment for improving the texture and tone of your skin. It helps to reveal new and healthy skin cells by emitting tiny beams of intense heat below the surface of your skin. By doing this, the treatment stimulates collagen production, which not only breaks down scarring but helps plump the skin for a more radiant complexion.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

This acne laser treatment can help treat scars for people with lighter skin tones. If you have a darker skin tone, laser treatment might not be suitable for you as it can cause skin pigmentation issues. For dark skin types, we recommend our microneedling treatment.

If you are currently on acne treatments such as Accutane, you may not be able to have laser treatment. Please speak to your practitioner at your consultation to discuss alternative treatment options.   


Microneedling is a popular treatment for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin. It works by using a pen device that has tiny needles which penetrate the top layer of your skin. As a result, it triggers the body’s wound-healing process and collagen production. From this, you will see healthy new skin cells forming and your skin will look more plump and healthy

than before.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

Microneedling works on all different skin types and skin tones. It provides a more precise

treatment that can target individual acne scars. It also requires minimal downtime,

so you can go back to your normal routine after treatment.

The treatment is not suitable for anyone with active acne. This is because it can cause the bacteria in your acne to spread to other parts of your face, leading to more acne breakouts. 

Skin peels

Skin peels, also known as chemical peels, are an exfoliating treatment that help to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.

They work by applying a chemical solution to the skin which removes the top layer of your

skin. The new skin that grows back in its place, is much more smoother and healthier-looking,

and scarring is less visible. 

Who is suitable for this treatment?

At MySkyn Clinic, we provide a number of different skin peels that can treat most skin types. During your consultation, your practitioner will assess your skin to determine which chemical peel will be best for you. They will also do a patch test to ensure that your skin is suitable for treatment. 

Chemical peels are also a good acne treatment, as they help to destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation. This can stop breakouts and treat congested skin.
