Acne Scarring: Why You Should Use A Combination Of Both Medical Laser and Non-Laser Treatments

Posted on 17 Jul, 2018

Acne is a common skin disease, affecting approximately 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24. However, clearing up the acne is often only the start of the battle with severe cases leaving behind unsightly scars that can affect a person’s self-confidence. While there is a wide range of over-the-counter treatments you can use to fade the look of scars, nothing will treat acne scarring as effectively and permanently as a professional treatment.

When it comes to professionally treating acne scarring, there are a number of non-surgical options available to you including lasers, photo-rejuvenation, peels, microdermabrasion and collagen induction therapy. To find out what the most effective and permanent acne scarring treatment will be for you, make sure you consult a skin specialist before committing to a treatment. The Laser Treatment Clinic offer free consultations from Monday to Thursday 10am to 9pm.

Combining Medical Laser and Non-Laser Treatments

There is a fair amount of academic evidence in favour of using a combination of treatments to effectively treat acne scarring – particularly atrophic acne scarring. That’s not to say that a single type of treatment isn’t effective at treating acne but it can be more effective when a skin care professional examines your skin and tailors a package especially for you.

Although dermabrasion alone can be effective for treating and diminishing the look of scars, when combined with other treatments such as collagen induction therapy and professional peels, it becomes more effective on more severe acne scarring like ice pick scars. Lasers, on the other hand, have the advantage of being adjustable to different types of scarring and are precise enough to treat the affected area without unnecessarily irritating healthy skin.

Because lasers, dermabrasion, peels and collagen induction therapy all work in different ways, by using a combination of treatments you can target your acne scarring on multiple levels, yielding results much faster than if you were to just use one type of treatment. Our skin experts use a combination of laser and non-laser treatments tailored to your needs, to produce the best results possible.
