Acne Scar Treatment in Perth at Restoration Clinic
Permanent acne scarring from cystic and chronic breakouts can be extremely challenging to conceal. Makeup can help minimise redness but textural scars that are raised or manifest as depressions in the skin are more difficult to cover up. For many people acne is much more than a skin condition. In fact, severe acne scarring can affect your self-confidence and many other aspects of your life. Fortunately, Restoration Clinic offers excellent acne scar treatment in Perth that can help you regain your confidence by smoothing your skin’s texture and restoring a healthy, glowing complexion.
What causes acne scarring?
Acne scars result from trauma to multiple layers of the skin through inflammation. Chronic acne breakouts with prolonged periods of inflammation can leave behind marks long after the blemishes have healed. These marks typically start off as pimples or cysts that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, creating a breeding ground for acne-causing microbes inside the pores. Severe swelling and irritation can cause the skin to rupture and the infected liquid to spill out, damaging healthy skin tissue in the process.
The body’s natural response to healing deep trauma to the skin is to synthesise collagen. Normally collagen production is beneficial; however, in the case of acne scarring too much collagen can be deposited in the affected area. Excess collagen fibres can become arranged in a chaotic or disordered manner giving the skin a “cratered” or bumpy appearance.
Acne scars can also be pigmented – red or brown – due to build-up of melanin in the skin. Additionally, they can occur anywhere on the face, neck or body and picking at them can make the condition worse. Many types of acne scarring treatments in Perth are available to improve the skin’s appearance, texture, smoothness and hyperpigmentation caused by skin eruptions.
How to prevent acne scarring
A good way to prevent acne scarring is to address breakouts before they become serious or out of control. If you’re in the middle of an acne breakout it’s recommended that you seek medical treatment immediately. Avoid picking or squeezing blemishes as this many cause permanent damage that will require treatment in the future. Furthermore, as the skin is healing itself scabs may form over the wound area which must be left alone. Scab formation is your body’s natural defence mechanism which allows the skin to heal and disturbing scabs can promote the formation of additional acne scars.
Excellent Acne Scar Treatment in Perth
Because acne is multifactorial and the scars can all look very different to each other the best approach to treating acne scarring is to treat different types of scars with the method that gives the best results for that type of scar.
Deep scars can be treated with a specialised chemical peel technique called TCA CROSS which reduces the depth of the scar by causing collagen production very precisely at the base of the scar. Sometimes dermal fillers can be used to reduce scar depth, and generally skin needling will rejuvenate and smooth the skin, treating the more shallow scars.
Bloomea treatment is the ideal place to start to resurface acne scars.
It’s an advanced resurfacing technology that uses macro-exfoliation to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of scars, lesions and pigmentation. The treatment involves a 3-step process:
1. Macro-exfoliation for programmed and controlled peeling
2. High-frequency micro-vibrations that massage the skin to stimulate collagen
3. LED therapy that’s applied to the skin to help heal and regenerate it
This procedure doesn’t use microdermabrasion crystals or chemical ingredients of any kind and is therefore suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. After a series of treatments with Bloomea acne scar treatment, Mt Hawthorn patients will notice a considerable reduction in acne blemishes and scarring, as well as other skin imperfections. This procedure is quick and delivers outstanding results. Our experienced team at Restoration Clinic is confident that Bloomea offers an excellent solution for reducing acne scarring and smoothing the skin texture.
