Treatments for acne scarring – Acne treatment Melbourne
ENRICH Clinic is home to several effective laser treatments for acne scarring. Radio frequency devices & lasers can be used to target skin cells at a deeper level, working to strengthen and support skin cells & structure. This reduces the appearance of scars and marks that acne can cause.
Radio frequency treatments have the added benefit of killing bacteria and improving overall skin tone & texture. Laser treatments work by either stimulating collagen producing cells & collagen or ablating the skin surrounding the scar, evening out the surface of the skin.
Other effective and minimally invasive treatments include:
Deep acne scars
Of course, there are some very extreme cases of deep acne scarring and they will be too deep for ablative laser treatments to work alone. A combination of medicated creams, medication, lasers, light treatments & lasers and of course time may be the best route to clear, smooth skin.
