What are the causes of acne?

We all develop the odd spot or pimple from time to time. But when your hair follicles become blocked with dirt, oil and dead skin cells, this can result in new spots popping up constantly. If this is happening on your skin, you may have acne. 

Acne occurs when your sebaceous glands, which sit close to the skin’s surface, start to overproduce sebum. This is an oily substance that works to keep your hair and skin lubricated and prevent it from getting dry. 

However, when these glands produce too much sebum it can mix with dead skin cells which can cause blockages in the hair follicles. This results in new whiteheads or blackheads appearing on your skin. 

If the bacteria that sits on your skin gets into the blocked follicles, it can cause more severe acne to form such as nodules and cysts. 

If you are currently dealing with active acne, we can help with that too. Our laser device can also be an effective acne treatment. Find out more about our active acne treatments

Acne Scar Treatment Brighton


How does acne turn into acne scarring?

Not everyone who suffers from acne will develop acne scarring. This can make it difficult to know exactly why people develop acne scars. However, there are certain factors that can increase your chances of getting acne scarring, including:


  •       When you have long-term acne that leads to adult acne
  •       You have inflammatory acne which causes damage to the skin
  •       You pick or squeeze your spots and pimples regularly
  •       You have a family history of acne sufferers who develop acne scarring


What are the different types of acne scars?

To find the right acne scarring treatments, you need to understand what type of acne scars you have. Some types are more challenging to treat than others, so you should always consult with a skincare expert first before starting any treatment. 


  •     Keloid scars
  •     Rolling scars
  •     Atrophic scars
  •     Hypertrophic scars
  •     Boxcar scars
  •     Ice pick scars


Do not worry if you are unsure about what type of acne scars you have. During your consultation, our laser practitioners will assess your skin and help determine what acne scars you have and the best form of treatment. 



Acne scar removal Brighton

At Zapp Laser Studio in Brighton, we offer a range of acne scarring treatments. This includes one or a combination of chemical peels and the PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation treatment.


PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation treatment 

The PicoSure laser treatment works by helping to stimulate new elastin and collagen production in the skin. Both of these help the skin to stay strong and supple, while also looking more healthy as a result. 

The production of new collagen and elastin pulps your skin from the inside out, which helps to smooth and fade acne scars. After a course of treatments, you will see a visible improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. 

But it does not just treat acne scarring. This laser can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. 


Chemical peels

Chemical peels or skin peels are a great exfoliating treatment. They can help to remove dead skin cells and tackle oily skin concerns. This can make them an ideal active acne spot treatment. 

They work by applying a chemical solution to the skin. This can include active ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin A and Hyaluronic acid. Peels come in different strengths, which we match to your skin types and skin concern. 

The exfoliation of the skin encourages new and healthy skin cells to grow in their place. This makes your skin look smoother and more radiant than before, and makes acne scars less visible. 


SkinPen microneedling treatment

Another good acne scarring treatment is the SkinPen microneedling treatment. This is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. By doing this, it kick-starts your skin’s wound-healing response and the production of new skin cells. 

It is a popular treatment that works on all skin types. It also promotes the production of collagen to plump and rejuvenate the skin. It works well for treating most types of acne scars, as well as sun damage and lines and wrinkles. 

You cannot have this treatment if you suffer from active acne. This is because it can cause the bacteria in the acne to spread to other areas of the face. 

We often advise our clients to combine microneedling treatment with a course of chemical peels to see even better results.
