Everyone wants to look and feel good about themselves, which is why we go to the gym, change our diets, or buy the latest acne treatment to clear up breakouts on our face. But for those who suffer from acne, a skin condition that affects more than 80% of adolescents, feelings and looking good may be easier said than done. Persistent and severe acne can leave scarring that affects not just physical appearance but also self-confidence. Even low-grade, transient acne can leave scarring depending on certain skin types.
Skiin offers medical acne scar treatment in Melbourne that can help patients to restore their appearance, increase their confidence, and improve their quality of life. Using non-invasive medical technology, our laser acne scar removal procedures are a safe option for patients of all ages.
For most acne scar removal procedures, we use Xeo® by Cutera. Xeo® technology works by delivering short pulses of low energy laser which penetrate into the skin and regenerate the collagen, repairing scarred tissue. It’s also a completely controllable and non-invasive laser acne scar removal treatment.
As scarring can vary in severity, there are various options available. For milder scarring, we regularly opt for microdermabrasion, in which we use micro massage to remove the superficial layer of dead skin. This promotes the regeneration of the healthy, viable skin underneath. Microdermabrasion is suitable for women and men of all skin types, and is a popular option for acne scar treatment in Melbourne.
Laser acne scar removal usually takes about 6 to 8 treatments, with each of them spaced about 3 or 4 weeks apart. You won’t feel discomfort during the laser acne scar removal, with the sensation being described as similar to being underneath a heat lamp. Following the treatment, you will likely experience some redness for about an hour or so. Men with beards might feel some sensitivity, almost like a pin-pricking sensation, as the laser can have a tendency to catch the odd beard hair.
