Acne scars
Consultation in Düsseldorf or Saarland

Acne scars are a common problem for many people. Often scar tissue replaces damaged tissue that has been destroyed due to acne outbreaks and inflammation. This causes the skin to lose its suppleness and elasticity.

Our acne therapies mainly target the unpleasant inflammations that later lead to scars. Every pimple is already a small inflammation of the sebaceous glands of the skin. The bacteria that settle there cause wound healing problems. As a result, scars form. The normal connective tissue of the skin is destroyed and replaced by scar tissue.

With targeted therapies, we can effectively treat both acne and acne scars in a medical way.

Acne is one of the most common skin diseases worldwide. It can present itself in different forms. The typical pustules, pimples and blackheads (comedones) usually appear on the face, especially on the chin and forehead. Less frequently, the back or décolleté are affected.
Due to the hormonal changes of puberty, acne appears in adolescents from the age of nine. As a rule, the symptoms subside in the course of the third decade of life.
If the skin disease starts in adults over the age of 25, doctors call it adult acne or acne tarda (late acne).

From a medical point of view, two forms of acne scars are considered.
One is atrophic acne scars and the other is hypertrophic acne scars. Depending on the acne form of the patient, we coordinate an effective therapy to achieve the effective removal of the acne scars.
