    Acne & Acne Scarring

    Acne can be caused by excess oil (sebum) production. Though sebum plays a very important role in keeping our skin hydrated, when produced in excess it cannot flow to the skins surface, which causes clogged pores. P. acnes, a bacteria found on the skin, mixes with this excess oil and results in acne and inflammation.

    In trying to heal, the body forms new collagen fibers to mend the damage, which is when we start to see acne scarring. This scarring may appear as depressed and/or discolored marks on the face. These marks may take many months, or even years to go away on their own, with some types of scarring getting worse as we age. At Forest Hill Medispa, we have a variety of treatments that can reduce and diminish the formation of acne and treat the appearance of acne scarring.


    There are four main factors that contribute to the formation of acne: excess oil, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. There are also certain factors that can trigger or worsen acne symptoms:

    • Heredity/genetics
    • Fluctuating hormone levels
    • Menstruation
    • Picking at sores
    • Wearing tight clothing, helmets, and headgear
    • Stress that increases cortisol levels
    • Oily or greasy personal care products
