Acne Scarring Treatments
Do you suffer from Acne Scarring? You’re not alone!
Acne is very common in teenagers and younger adults. Approximately 80% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne. Most Acne sufferers’ day-to-day lives become a constant battle with this insecurity; resulting in them feeling ashamed of their skin and humiliated in public. Even though Acne tends to be more prominent during adolescence, that doesn’t mean it cannot become active at any point in one’s life.
The spots, pimples and cysts that are the result of Acne aren’t always the main issue with this skin condition; the scarring, however, can become permanent, making it the prime culprit for somebody’s lack of self-esteem.
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, the clinical team’s intentions are purely based upon giving each client a chance in having skin that they are confident and happy in. As they are experienced leading professionals, their skillset is next to none, and they can provide clients with a bespoke treatment that’s tailored precisely to them.
A Brief Overview of Acne
If you are unfamiliar with Acne, it is a skin condition that is developed when the oils that lubricate the skin and dead skin cells come together to cork hair follicles; in most cases, inflammation and infection are what causes severe symptoms. Acne is seen in the forms of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads and cysts, which are the culprit for most scarring.
Acne is mostly caused by hormone change, resulting in the condition flourishing during puberty and in some cases, the menopause. It can also be caused by poor hygiene and if the skin has not been looked after.
Acne scarring is caused by the body putting all of its efforts into healing said Acne, but as a result, it produces too much collagen which in turn, treats the scarring rather than fighting it, often making it permanent.
There are a few types of Acne scarring; the first being Macular Acne Scarring, which is the dark pigmentation in areas of the skin that arises pretty sudden after suffering from the skin condition. The second is Box Acne Scars which are in the form of circular craters found where the Acne manifested priorly and are usually comparable to Chicken Pox Scarring. We then move onto Rolling Acne Scars which are due to damage underneath the skin and Ice Pick Scars which resemble open pores but on a larger scale.
How Can We Help
Our range of treatments are designed to combat each type of Acne Scarring and these go by the names of Advanced Medical Grade Skin Peels, Mechanised Micro-needling, Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Laser Resurfacing, Advanced E-Light, Co2 Laser or IPL, Low-Level Light Therapy and even the use of Mesotherapy and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers which are also proven effective.
Each client undergoes a medical consultation where our clinicians will diagnose the clients’ scarring and will then go on to tailor a treatment plan to the severity of the scars so that they can give you the best chances of gaining a clear complexion in the long run. It is also a good opportunity for our clients to ask any questions about the aftercare and the risks of the treatments too.
However, below is a little more information on some of the treatments that we offer here at Aesthetics of Liverpool so that you can get an idea of what they involve:
Micro-needling, AKA Collagen Induction Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive and non-ablative procedure to rejuvenate the skin. A Micro-needling device is used to create skin injury to break down the collagen, which then, in turn, helps the skin to heal itself.
This procedure uses a laser to remove very thin layers of the skin where the scars are found so that clients are left with an improved appearance of the skin. This is usually carried out if the scarring is a little more on the minor side.
Mesotherapy isn’t one of the most common treatments to diminish Acne Scarring, but it is proven to work wonders in some cases. It is non-surgical again and is usually used to get rid of problem areas such as Cellulite and excess fat by injecting Hyaluronic Acid into the middle layer of the skin.
As mentioned before, there are many other treatments we can offer to our clients to reduce Acne Scarring, and we will be happy to give you more details of our procedures if you contact us on 01512 031393 or if you visit our website for our webchat.
