Acne Scarring

Even after your acne is gone, it can leave behind life changing scarring!

Acne Scarring is generally the end result of mild to severe cases of Acne. It can also be difficult to treat and in severe cases, a doctor or dermatologist that specialises in this area may be required.

Deep peels, ablative resurfacing lasers and perhaps even surgery may be required.

For this reason, it always best to start addressing any acne concerns early on. Although it might not be possible to eliminate all scarring, it can certainly help to reduce it.

Prevention is always better then a cure – and nothing could be more true in the case of Acne Scarring. The sooner you start dealing with your acne, the better off the end result will be.

Get on top of your acne early!

The sooner you start to manage your acne, the better off you’ll be. In consultation with a skin specialist, acne scarring can be managed quite well. Waiting is often the worst thing you can do.

Always choose a reputable clinic. Most beauty salons and clinics will advertise treatments for acne – but acne is a medical condition and should be treated by someone with a deep knowledge and understanding of the skin – not just your average beauty therapist following instructions from a book!

Reducing and eliminating scarring should be a relatively straightforward approach for most experienced clinicians. It should be mostly inexpensive with little down time. All you’ll need is a bit of patience and perseverance.

In fact, as part of a good Acne skin management plan, your skin specialist should also be accounting for acne scarring so appropriate measures will be built into your plan to account for this. All going well, most scarring will be eliminated in the process of treatment and managing the Acne itself.

It you don’t manage your Acne correctly or if you leave it too late to seek treatment, that’s when things can get tough.

It will be difficult to revise. It will require a medical professional using deep chemical peels, ablative resurfacing lasers and perhaps even surgery (in really severe cases – although this is rare). There is the chance of significant downtime as well – which means no work, no school, no play!

What we don’t recommend.

Quick-fixes! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Anyone promising overnight remedies is lying to you. There are no quick fixes despite what many will try to convince you.

Speak to qualified, experienced skin care professional and obtain personalised advice that is specific to you. Don’t seek out the cheapest or the most convenient option. Both will usually just leave you out of pocket with very little results to show for it.

Microdermabrasion and over-exfoliation are terrible ideas – along with products and treatments that strip oil from the skin. While it may sound like a good idea, the result is often counterproductive.
