What is acne? Dermatologist treatment for acne scars
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that is most common amongst teenagers and adolescents but can affect people of all ages. It occurs when the hair follicles become blocked with dead skin cells. Acne often presents itself as whiteheads, blackheads or pimples and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne scars are the permanent textural changes, marks and indentations that can occur following severe acne.
Laser treatments – dermatologist treatment for acne scars
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.
Radio frequency treatments have the added benefit of killing bacteria and improving overall skin tone and texture. Laser treatments work by either stimulating collagen producing cells and collagen or ablating the skin surrounding the scar, evening out the surface of the skin.
Other effective and minimally invasive treatments include:
- Glycolic acid face peels
- Topic vitamin A products
- Laser microdermabrasion
