A large proportion of the population is affected by acne, a common skin condition that can cause undesirable symptoms such as pimples, redness, whiteheads and blackheads. Due to inflammation of the skin, the condition can also be painful for sufferers. Fortunately, help is at hand, as there are a number of effective treatments available to improve the symptoms and appearance of acne. In this article, Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic lists several popular acne treatment procedures offered in our Melbourne clinics that are ideal for treating acne and acne scarring.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-rejuvenating treatment that can work to unclog pores, clear acne and even repair superficial skin damage caused by scarring. Using fine aluminium oxide crystals, this acne scarring treatment removes dead outer skin layers and stimulates collagen production, resulting in smoother and fresher skin. While a longer series of treatments may be necessary for deeper acne scar removal, a general improvement in scarring should be visible after just several treatments.
Skin peels, also known as chemical peels, are micro-exfoliating treatments that are designed to hydrate skin and unclog pores. Benefits include brighter, smoother and clearer skin, making the peels a fantastic acne treatment. In addition, there are a wide range of different skin peels to choose from, including ones that are specially designed to improve the appearance of acne and acne scarring.
Skin needling is a regenerative procedure that penetrates the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production, making it one of the best treatments for acne scars. The treatment involves microscopically puncturing the skin with ultra-fine needles, triggering the body’s natural wound-healing process and helping to minimise the appearance of scarring caused by acne.
