Signs and Symptoms

One of the major side effects of acne is scarring; almost every case of this condition leads to temporary or permanent scarring. These scars are characterised by redness, uneven texture, changes in colour, and deep pits in the skin.

They are often hard (or impossible) to conceal with makeup and can result in years of psychological damage, making acne scarring treatment an increasingly popular option for those seeking acne scar removal.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne is an imbalance in the skin that causes pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and papules. Many people that have acne often pick and squeeze their pimples in an effort to eliminate excess pus, sebum, dirt and oil. Unfortunately, this is often ineffective (as the acne tends to come back) and can result in scarring. Even without any interference, acne can leave scars due to irreparable damage to the skin.

Scars are composed of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin in the event of abrasion, injury etc. They appear and feel different to normal skin due to the way that they are formed. Unlike regular skin, scars feature collagen that cross-links to form one-directional alignment. Not only do they affect the appearance and feel of the skin, but they prevent hair and sweat gland regrowth. They are also more susceptible to UV damage.

Q & A

Can You Get Acne Scars Removed?

Yes, acne scars can be removed safely and effectively thanks to a range of available treatment options. Removal is possible for various scar types and areas of the body, including your back with our back acne scar treatment.

What Are the Different Types of Acne Scars?

A common misconception regarding acne scarring is that what works for one scar will work for another. This is not always the case, as there are various types of acne scars that can each require different treatments.

Types of acne scars include:

  • Ice-pick scars – Ice-pick scars cause deep holes that give skin the appearance of having been punctured by a sharp object. They often start as a comedone and typically measure 2mm or less.
  • Rolling scars – Rolling acne scars cause depressions in the skin that have a rolling, wave-like appearance. Treatment options include microdermabrasion, skin needling and laser skin treatment.
  • Boxcar scars – Wider than ice-pick scars, acne boxcar scars cause round or oval depressions in the skin that resemble the scarring caused by chicken pox. Recommended treatments for boxcar scarring include microdermabrasion, excision and laser treatment.
  • Atrophic scars – Atrophic scars have a sunken and pitted appearance, plus they can lead to the development of hyperpigmentation.

What Are the Options for Treating Acne Scars?

Whether you require an acne scar treatment for your back or treatment for acne scars on the face, we offer a range of safe and effective treatment options at our clinics. These include:


Skin needling punctures the skin to enhance collagen growth that will ‘fill in’ areas of scar tissue. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment option is suitable for treating acne on various areas of the body, including the face, back and chest. You should begin to see a reduction in scarring within 6 to 8 weeks after the first treatment, with 3 to 4 treatments recommended for optimal results.


Skin peels for acne scar removal are carried out using special ingredients that stimulate cell renewal while refining the complexion and smoothing the skin. Our staff will determine which skin peel is right for you by taking into account your skin type as well as the type of acne scarring you wish to remove.
