Acne Scarring

Acne Scarring can be treated at Medicetcs to reduce redness and indentations.

Depending on the type of scarring we can use a combination of skin peels, lasers,dermapen and medical grade microdermabrasion treatments at Medicetics in London and Cirencester. After acne breakouts dissipate, scarring can be left behind, leaving clients feeling just as self-conscious as they did with their breakouts.

The best way to treat acne scarring is to use procedures that encourage cellular turnover, while can help fade the appearance of dark spots and pocks. Medical microdermabrasion can remove the top layer of skin to reduce the appearance of scars, while skin peels can accomplish the same goals while encouraging the production of collagen.

Your Medicetics doctor will work closely with you to determine the best course of action to treat your acne scarring. Our acne scarring treatments can include regular skin peels, medical microdermabrasions, and more. Patients can also opt for facials to hydrate and support emerging new skin. The double black carbon laser peel helps to reduce active acne by reducing sebum and the bacteria on the skin.

1. Treat acne before you treat scarring.
It’s important for clients to have no acne breakouts when they start treating acne scarring. That’s because scarring may require different treatments, which may be too harsh on skin with existing breakouts.

2. Acne scars come in different shapes and sizes.
Not all acne scars are made equal. Some acne scars can appear as red marks that eventually turn into darker hyperpigmentation. Other scars can create pockmarks, which look like deep divest in the skin. The latter can be treatedwith hyaluronic acid injections.

3. Picking causes acne scars.
Your mum was right – if you pick at your acne, you’re much more likely to create noticeable scars. Resist popping or picking at spots; only pop a spot if it has a noticeable whitehead.

4. Older acne scars are more difficult to treatment.
This is true of scars in general – the older they are, the tougher they can be to treat. It’s best to start a course of acne scarring treatments as soon as your breakouts are done.

5. Sunscreen can help prevent acne scarring.
Studies have shown that sun exposure can make acne scars darker and more noticeable. Yet another reason why you should always wear sunscreen with high SPF!

You may be a good candidate for acne scarring at Medicetics if:

  • You’re done with breakouts
  • You have red, purple, or brown marks from past breakouts
  • You have pockmarks from past breakouts.
  • You feel embarrassed to leave the house

 

During your Medicetics consultation, you’ll meet with your doctor, who will examine your acne scarring and help you devise the best treatment plan.

This regimen treatment may include skin peels, medical microdermabrasions, and potentially laser skin rejuvenation for severe scarring. Your Medicetics doctor will also discuss how often you should undergo treatment to see your best results.
