Don't let Acne Scars damage your appearance....learn the cosmetic industry secrets to clear & smooth skin.
Various types of acne lesions will cause different degrees of skin damage but some scars can be extremely exacerbated by acne reduction techniques and the individuals’ immune response to skin repair. Remedies such as aggressive exfoliation and harsh cleansers can over dry the skin while very little advice is considered to nourish the skin too. While the initial method can definitely aid in oil reduction and pore clearance, it usually leads to the skin being left excessively irritated or continuously dry, the support structures of skin are compromised leaving poor function to skin repair.
One very disturbing factor in the fight for clear skin is the over prescribed strong retinoids and Accutane medication that overly dry skin and starve it from both the lipid nourishment required for healthy skin and epidermal water loss. While they can be very helpful methods for treating severe acne, poor advice is provided how to use these products including the use of other skin care to prevent these scenarios for causing skin damage and scarring. Hopefully some of you reading this article will see the benefit of advising others that proper acne skin care advice is needed to prevent scarring.
Scarring can be a more disfiguring concern then the acne itself if it occurs and while acne can resolve, scars are permanent remnants of the initial issue. Nonetheless, there are real solutions to acne scar remodelling and skin correction. Cosmedix Clinic provides the latest in skin remodelling techniques that ensure accurate and promising results. I will go through them individually.
Treating Acne Scars at Cosmedix Clinic
Most of the time, those reddish or brownish acne marks that are left behind after a pimple eventually fade with no need for treatment. Picking or squeezing acne can increase the risk for scarring, though.
Acne scars take two forms:
Mild vs. Severe Scarring
Treatments depend on how severe the scars are. In some cases, other clinics or beauty centres will offer a medium grade (at best) chemical peel, microdermabrasion or micro-needling treatment to help improve the appearance of scarred skin. However, skin remodelling is a much more complex process especially the deeper and larger the scars present. I always warn clients that if you cannot be assured the degree of improvement or if the procedure sounds to simple and easy with no down-time involved, then you may unlikely be happy with the end result while wasting your time and money.
For those who are serious about addressing acne scarring, a customised treatment plan/ programme usually needs to be considered from person to person. There are several things that can be done but are usually not a solution on there own:
