Tailored Treatment Plans
The infection and inflammation associated with acne can cause temporary or permanent scarring on the skin. Acne commonly causes changes to skin pigmentation and skin tone, particularly on olive or darker skin types.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening of skin pigmentation), hypopigmentation (loss of pigmentation), and long term redness of the skin are all common occurrences after an acne lesion has passed. Picking and squeezing active acne can worsen these symptoms.
Because each type of acne scar has its own unique set of characteristics, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. Treatment needs to be tailored to the type of scarring present and the amount of downtime that the patient can tolerate.
