Treatments for Acne Scarring

Treatments for Acne Scarring

If you suffer from acne scarring, you already know that acne scars are hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several treatments available that can efficiently tackle acne scarring.

Chemical peels for acne scarring

Chemical peels are considered very effective for acne scars, because they significantly improve the appearance of the skin, by removing the outer layer of old skin. Acne scars are the result of acne lesions that injure the collagen layers of skin, so removing the old skin cells results in fresher, clearer skin.

Chemical peels also unclog pores and improve skin texture as they reduce hyperpigmentation caused by acne breakouts.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a skin treatment that uses a chemical solution such as salicylic acid, lactic acid, or glycolic acid to exfoliate the upper layers of dead skin cells. There are different types of peels – superficial, medium, and deep – depending on the strength of the chemical solution used.

What’s involved in a chemical peel?

The skin is first cleansed after which the chemical solution is applied. The peeling solution causes an injury to the skin, and this makes the old skin cells peel off. As cell turnover occurs and the new skin cells replace the old ones, the skin will be noticeably smoother, and free of blemishes.

When will I see results?

How soon you see results after a chemical peel depends on the strength of the peel, and your skin type.

How many chemical peels do I need to treat acne scars?

More than one peel may be required depending on the severity of the scars.

Can acne scars be treated on my body?

If you have ever suffered from the effects of post-acne scars, you’re probably aware of some of the insecurities that go along with having those marks on your body. While acne scars sometimes go away on their own after a few weeks, there are occasions when they don’t, and this dilemma often has people looking for answers and asking the question – Can acne scars be treated on my body.

Treating acne scars
There are now several different treatments being used to successfully remove acne scars. These include laser therapy, and collagen induction therapy (CIT). The treatment choice depends on the type of scarring.

CIT with the Eclipse MicroPen
At Nowak Aesthetics we treat acne scars with CIT using the advanced Eclipse MicroPen. The Eclipse MicroPen works by improving collagen synthesis in the skin.
Unlike other treatments that are only effective on specific skin types, Eclipse MicroPen is safe for use on all skin types.

The MicroPen is a small automated micro-needling device that uses a sterile single-use disposable cartridge containing 12 micro-tips. Its high speed motor makes it a fast and efficient alternative that produces consistent results.

How it works
The skin is first cleaned using a topical gel, and then a lubricating substance is applied to help the MicroPen move easily across the skin. The device creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin and this stimulates collagen and accelerates skin turnover. This results in a clearer, brighter complexion within 30 days.

Downtime is minimal and there are few side-effects. Some temporary redness can be observed after treatment, but this normally settles down within 24 hours.
