Scars are essentially a disorganized mass of collagen that was deposited by the body to strengthen the tensile strength of the skin where it was previously torn or cut. Eventually, that strength is no longer needed since the skin has fully healed, however the buildup of collagen does not tend to subside, leaving uneven skin.
When these scars are on exposed skin, many become sub conscious of their presence which can affect our confidence. Some causes of this scarring can be:
- Acne scarring
- Injuries to the face
- Lesion removal
When working specifically with acne scarring, it is best to treat the acne first. The doctors at Aurora are very well skilled at finding and addressing the cause of acne which is important to prevent the scarring in the first place, as well as reduce the inflammation in the skin to insure the most success with treatment.
