Ever wondered why some acne leaves a mark long after it’s gone? Acne scars are often what’s left behind after severe acne or skin inflammation. These scars can take the form of discoloured patches or give your skin a dimpled, uneven texture.
These scars appear when inflamed acne—like cysts or pustules—leave a gap in your skin's structure. The skin then 'collapses' into this gap, creating a dimpled look.
These are the discoloured spots that stick around after acne heals. Caused by excess melanin, they can be particularly stubborn for people with darker skin tones.

While minor acne scars may fade over time, severe scarring can be permanent—especially if you pick or squeeze your acne. But with our advanced treatments, we aim to minimise their appearance effectively.
