Using a combined approach to tackle acne scarring

Posted on 22 Mar, 2012

Scarring left behind by active acne can cause various problems: the pitted appearance of the scars makes the skin’s surface uneven making it difficult to disguise under make up. The scar tissue is usually redder than the surrounding skin which again makes it more noticeable.

These factors can make acne scarring difficult to live with, and also mean that effective treatment needs to address both aspects of the problem. The Laser Treatment Clinic uses a combination of treatments to obtain the best results when dealing with acne scars.

Microdermabrasion is used to deeply exfoliate the skin and to remove the damaged superficial layers. This reveals the new skin beneath, improves the texture of the skin’s surface and encourages the process of skin renewal.

Laser treatment follows the microdermabrasion. Its purpose is to stimulate the production of healthy new skin cells and collagen, which is absolutely essential for skin to be strong, supple and healthy.

The result is reduced redness and a smoother surface to the skin, meaning that you can rediscover your confidence without needing to hide your face under layers of make up. Scar treatment will help you to finally say good bye to acne!
