Acne Scars

There are three types of acne scars. These are called ice pick, acne pit, and raised scars. Proper treatment and care of the skin will help to prevent the conditions that produce scars.

Ice pick scars are large, visible, open pores that look as if the skin has been jabbed with an ice pick or other sharp, thin instrument. The follicle (pore) always looks open, as if a small hole has been made in the skin. This condition is caused by a deep pimple or cyst that has destroyed the follicle as the infection worked its way to the surface of the skin (Fig. 78).

Acne pit scars are indented and are due to pimples or cysts that have destroyed the skin and formed scar tissue. The scar has a slightly sunken or depressed appearance (Fig. 7.9).

When several large cysts have clumped together, and as scar tissue forms, a lumpy mass of raised tissue is created on the surface of the skin, known as raised scars (Fig. 7.10).

What our customers are saying

I just wanted to write and thank you again for such a wonderful time spent in your spa on Saturday, the 29th of September - my friend and I are from Washington State and were on a cruise ship docked in Vancouver Harbor.
Thanks so much to Margaret for starting me out just right. The massage was heavenly - it felt so good to relax and let someone take care of me for a change. I'm a single Mom, and for the past 10 years its always been about someone else. I was horribly stressed and frazzled when I went in (which was one of the reasons for the cruise) but I left feeling like a new person with my calmness and spirituality back in tact. This spa visit was a very special luxury for me.
The facial was a pleasant surprise. It was my first, and I think I'm hooked. I'm sorry that I can't remember the technician that helped me, as she was wonderful. My face felt so very smooth and soft for a good day or two after. And the wash and toner that I bought are making a difference. I'm going to find someone here locally to help me get back on track.
My nails and toes looked great for our formal evening on the ship on Saturday night. Thanks to both of those technicians for working in cramped conditions just to get me finished in time.
I just wanted to say how professional everyone was. I was quite pleased that even though there were three people in my room at one time, not a word was spoken between them unless it had to do with the treatment.
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

With warm regards,

Debby
