Advanced Acne Scarring Solutions
What is the Best Treatment for Acne Scars?
Depending on the type of severity of acne scarring, you may be offered laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Dermaroller or Indiba radio frequency treatments. Each one of these treatments has its particular strengths, and the staff at La Belle Forme will ensure that you are offered the correct treatment or combination of treatments for your needs and skin type.
Will Lasers Remove Acne Scars?
If laser therapy is recommended, you can rest assured that La Belle Forme is equipped with the very latest in laser technology to resurface your skin. Harmony XL lasers are among the most advanced in the world, and the Harmony XL Laser 360iQ treatment is ideally suited to eliminating acne scarring. The results are often noticeable even after a single treatment. Combining the benefits of superior technology, including the revolutionary new iPixel laser, and faster healing times than many other treatments, laser therapy stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone and texture in treatments that usually take less than 30 minutes per session.
Do Chemical Peels Work for Acne Scars?
Another option might be chemical peels; a treatment solution that removes the top layer of dead skin cells and some of the living skin cells at the very top of your skin. There are several different types of chemical peels, but all work by removing the top layers of skin to reveal the healthy new skin underneath.
There are three different levels of intensity when it comes to chemical peels – superficial, intermediate and deep. Deeper peels will take longer to recover from, but will deliver more dramatic results. Generally speaking, chemical peels are best used for mild to moderate skin problems, and are often used in conjunction with other treatments as part of an overall package of facial rejuvenation.
Is Dermaroller Effective?
The third option is Dermaroller treatments, taking place over hour-long sessions in the clinic, and performed using a local anaesthetic cream. Although there are home Dermaroller kits, staff at La Belle Forme use a medical grade Dermaroller that produces thousands of micro needle columns in the skin. Your skin will be red for a day or two following the treatment, but it will recover quickly as it starts to regenerate and repair itself.
As part of the process, new collagen will be formed, new skin cells will be generated and the blood supply to your skin will be enhanced. Dermaroller treatments are generally repeated every few weeks, with most people receiving three to five treatments six weeks apart.
What is Indiba Treatment?
A fourth treatment option to consider is Indiba radio frequency therapy. This increasingly popular, pain-free skin rejuvenation treatment uses a regenerative radio frequency to increase the internal temperature of human tissue, regenerate cells and increase overall skin luminosity. Indiba treatments have produced some stunning results, and have rapidly become a popular choice with people looking for a non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedures.
