Acne Scarring Treatment At Our Finest Aesthetic Clinical Studio In Melbourne

Having acne problems can have a drastic impact on a person’s confidence. Acne often leads to avoiding social occasions and shy behaviour, that can be extremely hard to overcome while the physical signs are still there. If this is all sounding too familiar to you, then Aesthetic Studio Clinic can assist with our extensive experience in dealing with acne scarring and providing fantastic results for our patients. While acne scarring is incredibly hard to conceal well with makeup in many cases, it’s not something that can’t be improved

Are Acne Scars Treatable?

Yes, there’s a range of approaches depending on the type and severity of acne scarring you are experiencing that can be looked at, we provide numerous approaches at Aesthetic Studio Clinic, and this helps ensure we have the most suitable options at hand for a wide range of patient needs.

What Causes Acne Scarring?

Pimples, whiteheads, papules and the frequently frustrating blackheads are caused by an imbalance in the skin or other factors. People naturally have the urge to squeeze their pimples to remove excess puss, dirt, and oil, however, when a more severe acne problem is at play they simply reoccur, and this cycle almost inevitably causes some degree of scaring.

Scars themselves are fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin tissue after abrasions, deep cuts, and other injuries. Scarred skin prevents hair and sweat glands forming. They also feel different to healthy skin, and this is due to scar tissue collagen cross-linking to form a one-directional alignment. Scars are also more susceptible to UV damage, potentially causing even more problems for someone with already damaged skin.

Aren’t All Acne Scars the Same?

No, this is commonly assumed. However, there are various kinds of acne scars that benefit from different approaches. This is why not just one type of treatment is a cure-all for acne scarring, and you should be skeptical of anyone suggesting that to be the case.

Some Different Kinds of Acne Scars:

  • Atrophic scars – This kind of scarring has a sunken or pitted appearance.
  • Ice-pick scars – Resemble deep holes that almost look like puncture wounds.
  • Boxcar Scars – Similar to Ice-pick scars but broader, similar to chicken pox scars.
  • Rolling scars – These result in depressions that have a rolling/wave-like appearance.

Some of the Options Available for Treating Acne Scarring

At Aesthetic Studio Clinic we have a range of options for treating acne scarring from the back to the face, we have a variety of effective treatment options that can be used to tailor a plan to best suit your needs.

Microdermabrasion:

This approach to dealing with acne scaring removes dead skin cells and helps to unclog pores. This assists with reducing the odds of further acne breakouts, or a reduction in severity. Microdermabrasion is safe to perform on a lot of the body and is a frequently considered option when it comes to back acne. The goal of microdermabrasion is to stimulate the deeper skin layers, to promote revitalization and regeneration, that also as mentioned helps provide an environment that is less likely to promote further acne breakouts.

Non-Fractional Laser Resurfacing:

There are two general approaches to laser resurfacing, non-fractional is focused on removing the top outermost layer of skin. This allows this layer to regenerate and reducing signs of scarring.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing:

This approach to non-fractional uses a laser to push energy into the skin tissue, in turn, helping to stimulate new collagen growth and reduce acne scarring via these mechanisms rather than removing the outer skin layer.

Skin Peels:

Using ingredients that are specifically chosen to stimulate cell renewal, enhance complexion, and smooth the skin, skin peels can be a practical option for certain skin types depending on the type of acne scarring as well.

Collagen Induction Therapy:

Puncturing the skin promotes collagen growth, this can assist acne scarring by filling in some types of acne scarring. This approach is commonly referred to as skin needling, and it is appropriate for a wide range of areas including the back, chest, and face. This approach can be a little slower than some alternatives to show results, however, can be quite effective for many patients. Reduction in scarring should begin to show around six to eight weeks after initial treatment. For this approach 3 or 4 treatments are likely to produce the best outcomes.
