Treatments for acne scarring – Acne treatment Melbourne
ENRICH Clinic is home to several effective laser treatments for acne scarring. Radio frequency devices and lasers can be used to target skin cells at a deeper level, working to strengthen and support skin cells and structure. This reduces the appearance of scars and marks that acne can cause.
