WHY DO WE GET THEM?
Unfortunately acne is very common among teens and adults, with exact causes largely unknown. As a result, many people suffer for years before finding a treatment that works for them. In the meantime, acne can worsen and, in the most severe cases can cause scarring. These happen when nodules and cysts burst and damage the skin, and when sufferers find it difficult to avoid squeezing and picking at spots. In these cases the scars can simply be redness of the skin, while in others the scars are in the form of small pits in the skin.
PREVENTION AND REDUCTION
In the most severe cases, some scarring will probably occur. However, avoiding touching the face too often, and not picking at or squeezing spots are the best ways to keep scarring to a minimum. We know this is easier said than done so we’d also recommend following a rigorous skincare regime with products specifically designed for acne-prone skin. Our gentle yet effective acne skin care range is available to buy online and in clinics. We’ve also successfully treated thousands of acne sufferers with our range of acne solutions, including the Obagi Blue skin peel and Dermaroller™ treatments.
ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
Don’t suffer with your acne scars any more. There are quick and painless treatment options to suit all skin and types of scarring, including Dermapen™, PRP Treatment and Medical Microdermabrasion (MMD).
Before you decide which treatment to go for, we’d highly recommend booking in for a free consultation with one of our experienced nurses who will carry out a free computerised skin analysis before recommending a treatment package.
We only offer the best acne scar treatments, which all work by breaking down scar tissue and encouraging the skin to produce new, healthy cells and collagen. One treatment, Dermaroller™ works by rolling medical micro-needles over the affected area, encouraging increased blood supply to the skin and cell regeneration. It is a completely natural treatment that can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, with the skin looking smoother, plumper and more even after the first treatment.
