What Is Acne Scarring?
Acne scarring is usually an after-effect of inflamed blemishes or cystic acne.
Sometimes there are areas of pigmentation (darker or lighter areas of skin) after the blemishes have healed. Some people can be left with pitted facial scarring, where the skin appears uneven and dimpled ... and lead to loss of confidence.
Treatments For Acne Scarring
Acne scars can be stubborn and seemingly permanent, but there are several effective professional skin treatments, which work to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
The best treatment for you will depend on the type of acne scarring you have. Below are some of the treatments available at Aesthetics Julie Edwards. Book a Consultation to assess your skin and chat about the most appropriate treatment for you.
The treatment stimulates the fibroblasts within your skin to produce more collagen at a deep level, which leaves your skin smoother, with a lasting improved structure. The process is precise and predictable with no thinning of the skin.
The results look natural because they are achieved through your own body’s production of collagen. The treatment works at both the epidermal and dermal level, stimulating collagen production and leaving your skin smoother and with a lasting, improved structure.
Skin Peels work by harnessing the power of naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to deeply exfoliate the skin.
The treatment stimulates new cell growth and encourages collagen production, helping to reveal clearer, fresher and firmer skin.
The skin will be red for the initial few days following the treatment and then blisters form that will crust and drop off within 2 weeks. The Skin Peels process will likely need to be repeated every 6 to 12 months.
Scars from Acne and Chicken Pox can be improved and an uneven texture can be smoothed with Microneedling.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles (not injections) to cause microscopic punctures in the skin. This encourages the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.
The best results from Microneedling are seen after a course of treatment.
