Many young adults in Malaysia suffer from acne and some of them are left with acne scars. These visible scars often affect self-esteem causing low self-confidence amongst them.
In a recent study conducted by leading post-acne scar care brand, Hiruscar Post Acne, 31% of the participants indicate they have sunken scars which occur as a result of deep tissue loss. They also often have dark marks, red spots (63%) as well as raised scars (6%). These scars are often described as hypertrophic scars and often appears as a result of excess formation of new tissue.
Different types of scars will require different type of treatments to achieve optimal results. For post-acne scars, there’s Hiruscar Post Acne.

Hiruscar Post Acne recently launched its new educational campaign, ‘#SayNo2Scars’ to raise awareness on how to prevent acne scar and empower Malaysians to take control of their skin condition.
Through this campaign, Malaysians will be educated on how acne scars are formed and spread the word about effective and convenient treatments as we are aiming at helping Malaysians to minimize the visibility of dark marks and acne scars and to maximize their self-confidence. The campaign is a timely reminder for Malaysians to take control of their skin condition as well as to change their perception that acne scar is something that they must quietly endure.
As part of the ‘#SayNO2Scar’ campaign, Hiruscar Post Acne will be visiting eight universities around Klang Valley to conduct class presentations to educate students about the formation of scars and different skin conditions in an effort to help them break free from their scars and regain self-confidence. In addition, Hiruscar Post Acne will also held a symposium with pharmacists in three different locations namely Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bahru to highlight the benefits of effective and convenient acne scar treatments to pharmacist healthcare professionals.
