An Acne skin type can be that of clogged, blocked pores, blackheads, whiteheads, excess oil, pimples, and pustules or a combination of these things. Acne causes can be hormones, hereditary, stress-related and medications can have an impact too. Environmental conditions and lifestyle or dietary choices can contribute to the condition and management of acne as well.
Acne is highly treatable and manageable with our professional treatments and home care regimes and we also have a number of skin treatments that can tackle acne scarring such as pitted skin or post inflammatory scarring.
Acne scarring occurs in the dermis, which is the area of skin immediately below the surface that acts somewhat like a cushion. When people suffer
from acne, the dermis becomes inflamed as the body natural healing process kicks in and attempts to repair the wound created when scaly skin, pimples or blackheads are burst or otherwise
In more severe acne, the body can effectively put "too much effort" into dealing with the wound, meaning that there is an excess of collagen and fiber built up. This collagen may stay in place permanently, creating the scarring. This scarring looks like a pit in the skin, sometimes known as ice pick scarring.
There is a wide range of acne treatments, all work towards the same goal of removing the external layers of the scar tissue cells, leaving the scar either heavily faded or completely removed.
The main treatments are:
Which treatment is best will depend on the extent of the scarring, the desired results, and the skin type of the patient. For this reason, consultation and full skin assessment are offered with trained and experienced skin experts to help the patient decide. In some cases, combining multiple treatments may have the best effect.
