Acne is a common skin condition that affects both men and women, young and old. It occurs when hair follicles in the skin become blocked, and oil is unable to escape. The result of this is that spots will appear on the skin. For most acne sufferers, there are many treatments available including creams, lotions and even medication, which will greatly reduce and even completely treat the blemishes. However for some people, their acne is so severe that traditional treatments do not do enough to treat the condition.
Acne scarring occurs because of inflammation in the dermis brought on by acne. Scarring can be worse if you pick at the spots, so it is important to try not to do this if you do suffer from acne. In people with darker skin tones they may notice darkening, or hyper pigmentation, within the scars; while people with lighter skin tones may show redness, or erythema within the scars.
There are several different types of acne, and these different spots can occur anywhere on the body, though are most commonly seen on the face. These include:
• Whiteheads-these are very small and remain under the surface of the skin;
• Blackheads-these are black in colour and appear on the skin’s surface;
• Papules-these are small bumps, usually pink in colour, that are visible on the surface of the skin;
• Pustules-these are red at the base with pus at the top, and are clearly visible on the surface of the skin;
• Nobules-these are large, solid pimples which are painful and embedded deep in the skin;
• Cysts-these are painful and filled with pus, and can easily cause scarring.
If you suffer from noticeable acne scarring, then hiding the blemishes is often a top priority. Any kind of severe scarring can make one feel extremely self conscious, but acne scarring on the face can be even more noticeable, and can cause much distress for sufferers.
As one of the UKs leading skin laser treatment centres, the Laser Treatment Clinic in London has helped ½ million people achieve permanent, significant results for their skin complaints and conditions, including acne scarring.
Through the use of industry leading microdermabrasion laser therapy combined with Marine Skin Science skincare products, the Laser Treatment Clinic have successfully achieved dramatic smoothing of the skin and reduction of scars after just a few treatments. Multiple treatments are usually required for the best results, and sessions are normally repeated every one to two weeks.
The acne scar treatment consists of passing a highly controlled flow of fine medical grade crystals over the acne scars to remove the effected superficial layers from the epidermis level, without damage to the healthy skin. This then reveals the new skin beneath. The laser is then applied which promotes the growth of brand new collagen cells and also helps with the healing process. In addition to the laser treatment, by using the Laser Treatment Clinic’s medically approved Marine Skin Science skincare products; you can generate even better results and faster healing.
