Most people will at some point in their lives suffer from acne. Acne is a common skin disorder that affects well over half of the UK population at some point. However, with time, treatment, and patience, acne may disappear and leave your skin clear of painful red lesions. But the effects of acne don’t always end there… Acne scars are a common occurrence after your active acne has cleared up!
Acne scars are the result of severe acne. Depending on the individual, these scars may be deep and take a long time to heal or they can be shallow. Acne scars need some help to completely go away, meaning treatment is necessary if you wish to get rid of them.
Deciding to seek treatment for your acne scars is a personal decision, there is no right or wrong one, as long as you do what’s best for you. Acne scars are normal and natural, but if you wish to get rid of them then skincare clinic, The Laser Treatment Clinic have helped create this acne scar treatment guide for you.
Laser treatment is an effective way to treat mild to moderate acne scars. There are several kinds of laser treatment that all work in different ways to treat acne scars. The two common types of laser treatments are: ablative laser treatment and non-ablative laser treatment. Keep reading to find out what these two types of laser treatments mean.
Ablative laser treatment: this treatment removes the top layer of the skin’s surface surrounding the scar. This then creates a smoother texture around the acne scar as the skin grows back.
Non-ablative laser treatment: the difference between this treatment and ablative laser treatment is that this treatment does not remove any skin. Instead, this treatment will heat up the skin to promote collagen production. The result is that your skin will look healthier, tighter, and more even.
You can opt for either ablative or non-ablative laser treatment when it comes to acne scar treatment. When you go for treatment, a skincare specialist will examine your skin and discuss which type would be best for you.
Another effective option for acne scar treatment are chemical peels. A chemical peel is a solution that is applied to your face with the intention to remove the outer layers of the skin. The aim of this is to reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave the skin looking healthier and more even. Chemical peels also work to reduce the appearance of fine lines on the skin, as well as scars.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen induction therapy is another fantastic option for treating acne scars. This treatment focuses on promoting the production of collagen, a protein that improves the skin’s elasticity as well as the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.
Collagen induction therapy involves using microneedles on acne scars to create micro wounds that will encourage the healing of your skin. The natural healing process of the skin involves a lot of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells being produced, which is great for improving the appearance of acne scars.
