Nine out of 10 people experience acne at least once in their lives. While most of us get our worst breakouts in our teens because of hormonal fluctuations, five out of 10 get adult acne. Eight out of 10 will struggle with periodic acne breakouts throughout their lives.
Ideally, the acne clears with a proper skincare regimen and acne control programs. However, there are people who are left with deep acne scars that mar their complexion years after the breakout.
The physical and emotional scars of acne
There are three types of acne scarring. The most shallow are called atrophic acne scars. Boxcar scars are larger, while ice pick scars are narrower but deeper.
The acne scars can be difficult to hide with makeup, and can affect a person’s self-esteem. Sometimes they are bullied for their appearance, or they become shy and withdrawn. One study on the impact of acne scars on the quality of life of young adults in Singapore found that 36% felt very self-conscious, and 24% said that acne actually affected their social activities.

Don’t let acne scars hold you back!
New technology can treat even old, deep acne scars and give you a smooth and even complexion. Many clients look forward to The Clifford Aesthetics Acne Scar Program. This is a holistic, three-pronged approach that combines the Infini Fractional Radiofrequency with the Edge Fractional CO2 Laser, and a curated growth factor serum derived from stem cells. Together, they help the skin produce collagen that fills out the depression in the skin and then nourish skin cells for faster healing and a healthy glow.
The Clifford Clinic uses powerful lasers that have additional benefits. The Infini Fractional Radiofrequency lifts the skin, making you look younger. The Edge Fractional CO2 Laser also causes less redness and scabs than the traditional Fractional CO2 Laser. Redness disappears within 24 hours, so you don’t have to deal with a long downtime.
Each laser session takes approximately 2 hours, and sessions are spaced several weeks apart. The Clifford Clinic customizes each program to the patient’s needs.
