Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world; acne results in pimples which can be present on the face, back or even chest. Acne is the results of clogged pores which become inflamed or otherwise infected, creating raised bumps on the skin. Sometimes, acne causes acne scarring which can create visible marks as well as contribute to an uneven texture on the skin.
We offer a variety of acne scarring treatments that can help reduce the appearance of acne scarring by smoothing the texture of the skin and evening out skin tone. Our acne scarring treatments are as follows.
