Inflammatory Acne

Acne Laser Treatment in Melbourne

From comedonal acne to cystic acne, there are many varieties of this common skin condition. As a result, Skiin offers acne laser treatment in Melbourne to the estimated 90% of the population that is affected at some time or another. Our qualified doctors will use a trusted skin laser treatment for acne that aims to clear up skin and boost self-confidence.

Types of Acne

Primarily hormonal in nature, acne is a common physical condition that comes in a variety of types. At Skiin, we offer acne treatments in Melbourne that target the following types:

Comedonal Acne

Also known as non-inflammatory acne, comedonal acne is a mild form of the condition that’s defined by numerous blackheads (or comedones). The comedones are caused by oil, dead skin cells, and environmental factors like makeup, dirt and sweat which collect around the pores and block the follicles.

Inflammatory Acne

If comedonal acne is not treated, it may lead to inflammatory acne. The follicles will become inflamed and red in colour as the body tries its best to combat potential infection of the skin follicle. At Skiin, we offer inflammatory acne treatment with laser treatment.

Cystic Acne

The most serious form of acne can be recognised by its raised red lumps, which contain fluid caused by white blood cells working to consume the infection established in the blocked skin follicle.

Cystic acne can cause flat or raised post-acne scarring and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), which can add to the uneven texture of the skin.

Stages of Pimple Development and Healing

Before seeking laser acne removal, it can be beneficial to learn of the different stages of acne. The full list of pimple and acne development includes:

  • Comedone – Known as a blackhead
  • Closed comedone – Known as a whitehead
  • Papule – A solid elevation or lesion on the skin without visible fluid.
  • Pustule – An elevation or lesion on the skin containing white, yellow or green-ish yellow fluid.
  • Macule – A circular lesion or mark that can alter the skin colour without elevating or depressing it. These are the marks that appear on the skin as acne is beginning to heal. On dark-skinned patients, they are often associated with Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (or PIH).

Acne laser treatment is an involved process, depending on where you are in the stages of development. With our dedicated staff of nurses, doctors, aesthetic physicians and cosmetic clinicians, you’ll be in expert hands throughout your skin laser treatment for acne.

How Can We Help?

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis gently heats the upper dermis level of the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen is the structural protein found in connective tissues and is an important component of the skin, providing strength and a degree of elasticity which gives skin a youthful appearance. When the treatment is required to reduce redness, additional heat is generated in the dilated capillaries to ‘close down’ the tiny veins and capillaries that cause a red appearance on the skin. The treatment produces no side effects for most patients, but requires multiple sessions to achieve the best results. Most people require a series of at least 6 treatments, carried out every 4 weeks, to obtain optimal results. Please note that you will not see immediate results, as the procedure has a gradual but consistent effect. Our Laser Genesis Machine is imported from the USA and provides the best care for your skin.

Skin Needling

Skiin uses the latest Micro/Skin needling technology, helping to treat everything from lines and wrinkles through to uneven pigmentation. Our Micro/Skin needling machine is imported from Germany to provide the best treatment to your skin to look beautiful and can be used for Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Scar Reduction Therapy (SRT). It involves using an automated electronic stamping device to create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the skin tissue to promote healing and rejuvenation. In addition to the formation of new collagen, this non-invasive procedure also results in improved blood supply, making it a suitable treatment option for a range of skin concerns and conditions.
