What are acne and acne scars?
Acne is a skin disease that has a genetic predisposition, and can occur at any age. Acne may present itself in varying degrees of severity and can be worsened by certain diet and lifestyle factors.
Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually are not as smooth as the original skin which result in the appearance of scars.
How can I treat my acne and acne scars?
We usually recommend all acne clients to first consult one of our bulk-billing doctors for a professional diagnosis and treatment plan.
Acne treatment must be aimed at controlling sebum production, unclogging pores and killing bacteria. We should only commence acne scar treatment after your acne is under control because breakouts will risk further scar formation.
- Acne Skincare Treatment
A good cosmeceutical skincare regime is vital for acne management on a day to day basis. This should continue even after your breakouts have cleared for ongoing maintenance.
- Prescription Medication
For severe cases, our bulk-billing doctors may prescribe antibiotics to help control further breakouts and accelerate the healing process.
Chemical peel treatments penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to unclog pores, remove dead skin and promote cell turnover.
- LED Therapy
LED therapy uses red and blue light to help kill acne-causing bacteria, heal the skin and prevent future breakouts.
Medical-grade lasers are an advanced option to help control acne breakouts and rejuvenate blemished skin.
- Radiofrequency Microneedling
Radiofrequency microneedling is a clinically proven method to heat up the deep dermal layers to resurface acne scars and promote collagen production.
- Subcision and Punch Excision
Severe cases of acne scarring may require subcision or punch excision to help level out very pronounced scars before commencing microneedling treatment. This should only be performed by a trained doctor.
What results can I expect from acne and acne scarring treatment?
You can expect clearer skin and fewer breakouts if you adhere to the recommended treatment plan by our medical team. Acne treatment often takes 4-6 weeks to show results and after the acne clears, ongoing maintenance is required to prevent future breakouts.
Depending on the severity, acne scarring treatments may require 1-3 months to start seeing an improved skin texture. In general, the level of improvement is proportional to the amount of treatments you have.
