Effectively Treating Acne Scars on the Facial Area

Posted on 19 Nov, 2020

Acne is a skin condition that affects millions of people around the world, and is not only prevalent, but also known for the severe impact it can have on someone’s confidence and self-esteem. Most individuals who suffer from acne scars will often try any treatment to get rid of them because of this significant impact. However it is important to choose the right treatments when it comes to getting rid of these scars-facial acne scars in particular, otherwise you may end up doing more harm than good.

Preventing the Formation of Facial Acne Scars

The good news is that you can take steps now to avoid these active breakouts turning into permanent scars if you still suffer from active acne. The best thing you can do is to use professional treatments to treat your active acne and avoid popping or picking at these locations, as this will cause inflammation, further spread of the bacteria, and permanent skin damage.

In-Clinic Therapies for Acne

There are plenty of treatment options available for those who already suffer from acne scarring, to enhance the look of these scars and return your skin to a smoother and more even texture. Our experienced team uses a combination of different treatments here at The Laser Treatment Clinic and has successfully treated thousands of patients with acne scarring over the years.

As with all of our therapies, in-depth consultation with one of our skin experts will be your first step. This will enable us to put together a tailor-made treatment plan for your specific concerns, to ensure that our acne scar treatment provides you with the best possible results.

Acne Scar Therapy for Dark Skin Tones

If you have a darker skin tone, finding the right acne scar treatment for your skin type is extremely important. Acne and acne scarring both have different effects on darker skin tones than they do on lighter complexions. During the healing process, the body creates melanin as a reaction to the inflammation caused by acne. It may also induce too much melanin in darker skin tones, leading to not only scarring but also PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). While PIH can grow in all skin tones, it is especially prone to black and Asian skin and will most likely require an acne scar treatment plan that will deal with both the scarring and any associated pigmentation problems. We understand the expert expertise and treatment required to treat acne scarring on darker skin tones with over 18 years of experience in treating a range of skin issues on darker skin tones.

Aftercare Skin Care Products for Acne Scarring

In the final results, you will see when it comes to acne scar removal, your homecare routine plays a large role. It is important that you properly support and care for your skin during and after your professional treatment, as the skin on your face can be very delicate. Our ZAHEDA Skincare collection has been specifically designed to resolve various skin conditions and to help the outcomes of your in-clinical treatments. We recommend products for acne scarring that help to relax the skin in order to prevent any more inflammation and balance it. We recommend the use of the ZAHEDA Deep Sea Cleanse as your face cleanser, the ZAHEDA Ocean Tone for your toner, and the ZAHEDA Marine Fluid Shine Free as your moisturiser to complement your treatment plan.
