Once your skin has cleared from the acne, you may find that there are visible dark spots left behind on the skin. This is due to an overproduction of melanin that leaves discolouration once the pimple heals. The colour of the hyperpigmented scar is also dependent on the colour of your skin, and can appear white, pink, red, brown, purple, or black. At Thornhill Skin Clinic, we emphasize the importance of cell turnover to aid with the production and visibility of new skin cells. Our Cell Renewal treatments help to reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring over time.
