Acne scarring is a skin concern that for some people is highly sensitive, especially if the scarring appears on the face. Left untreated, acne scarring can cause low self esteem due to the on-going years of trauma and visible marks. With numerous advanced procedures available for acne treatment, the possibility of removing the scars is a very real one. For people who suffer from acne or are distressed about acne scarring, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Types of Acne Scar Removal Treatment Offered at Dr. Umed Cosmetics in Gold Coast
Acne scarring can be indented, raised, or at skin level – this means it’s it crucial to choose the most effective procedure to treat the scarring, as some treatment options may be more successful than others. By identifying the type of scarring, our specialists can narrow down the treatment best suited in a patient’s case. Some of these options include:
Dermal fillers act as a solution for a wide array of skin conditions. Acne scarring is one such procedure. In cases of indented scarring, dermal fillers are widely used to fill out the area beneath the scarring. With the skin lifted upward, the scarring becomes less prominent.
Laser resurfacing uses non-fractional laser to treat both indented and raised scars by removing the upper layer of skin without causing any damage to the layers below. With the upper layer gone, the layer below is smoother with less visible scarring. Fractional lasers are also being widely incorporated lately owing to their ability to reduce scarring while also stimulating collagen production.
For scarring that is superficial, chemical peels are a great option. They not only have a lesser downtime but can also be opted for in terms of how mild or aggressive they are, allowing your aesthetician to choose an option best suited for your scarring.
Compared to most other acne treatment for scar removal at our clinic in Gold Coast, skin needling requires no energy or heat for the procedure to be conducted. Further, the treatment causes no damage to the skin all while stimulating the production of collagen for scar reduction.
Often the scarring is minimal, making most of the other procedures more intensive than needed in order to treat it. Since new scarring is often at surface level only, microdermabrasion works as an ideal procedure that offers mechanical exfoliation along with a pressured vacuum. The acne scar treatment at our Gold Coast clinic reduces the visibility of mild scars to a great extent while clearing up the complexion.
