ACNE/ACNE SCAR TREATMENT MELBOURNE

Acne can be a serious concern for many, dealing with it beyond their teenage years. It can also be painful in certain cases, with scarring being yet another setback. The right acne treatment in Melbourne can help treat the condition from the root.

Understanding Acne

Acne is the result of blocked hair follicles due to dead cells or excessive oil production. While oil is naturally produced by these follicles to protect the skin and keep it healthy, too much of it can cause blockage which further leads to bacteria being trapped. As a result, the hair follicle is infected. A collection of these infected hair follicles is termed as acne and needs to be properly treated.

Treating acne is much harder than treating a mere pimple, and can leave behind some scarring as a result.

COMMON AREAS AFFECTED BY ACNE

Acne commonly occurs in areas where the production of oil by the hair follicles is high. The areas most affected by acne, therefore, include:

  • Face
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Neck
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACNE, BLACKHEADS, AND WHITEHEADS

Acne is different from the blackheads or whiteheads usually seen. The whitehead is essentially a hair follicle that has been infected or is inflamed and has a covering or membrane that keeps it from air exposure. Blackheads, on the other hand, are inflamed hair follicles that have already been exposed, leading to oxidisation.

Acne is more to do with your oil production and hormones and is often more excruciating than other forms of pimples.

EFFECTIVE ACNE TREATMENT OPTIONS IN MELBOURNE

At Cosmetic Skin Doctors clinic, we are equipped to help with acne treatment in Melbourne using a combination of methods, from lasers to medication. These methods not only help with the inflammation but also help treat the scarring left by acne.

1. Medication

The medication recommended for acne is often hormonal. In some cases that are more severe, your doctor may prescribe medication not available over the counter.

2. Dermatologist-recommended creams

Often, the creams or the washing agent you generally use can aggravate acne. We recommend and provide creams and washing agents that work to treat your acne in whatever capacity it can. Combined with the other treatment methods, this can prove very effective in the long run.

3. Lasers and radiofrequency

Acne treatment at our clinic in Melbourne includes laser therapy as well as the use of radiofrequency. The treatment helps deal with acne at the cell level, killing the bacteria causing the acne and improving the skin texture.

4. Acne Scarring

Aggravated acne can lead to scarring, with the scarring going deep. This is also commonly seen if the acne removal process is the wrong one. Often, trying to deal with acne at home through multiple methods causes the condition to worsen, also resulting in scarring. Further, acne needs to be treated from the root and cannot merely be treated skin deep.

If you’re dealing with acne scarring, we can help treat it through a number of effective procedures, depending on your condition. Through a consultation, we first need to determine how deep the scarring is, what the type of scarring is, and other details related to the scarring. From stimulating the production of collagen to light-based treatment, there are a number of methods we use for acne scar treatment in Melbourne, each designed for an effective outcome.

5. Acne Scar Treatment Methods

Acne scar treatment procedures are vast and can either be used singularly or as a combination or one or more methods, depending on the extent of scarring. Some of these methods for treatment include:

  • Dermatologist-recommended creams
  • Lasers
  • Light-based treatment
  • Radiofrequency
  • Dermal fillers
  • Needling
  • Cryotherapy

To find out the best treatment option in your case, we conduct an in-depth consultation to find out the type of scarring you have. Since certain scars have shown a better response to certain procedures over the years that we have treated acne scarring, we help determine the best methods to treat your scarring for the best possible results.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO YOU GET RID OF ACNE SCARS?

There are a number of treatments to help rid your skin of acne scars. CO2 fractional laser treatment, laser skin rejuvenation, fraxel laser treatment Picosure Pro Laser & RF Microneedling are some of the procedures we recommend at Cosmetic Skin Doctors Clinic for acne scarring treatment.

CAN YOU ACTUALLY HEAL ACNE SCARS?

Acne scarring cannot be dealt with completely through home remedies. These scars are often more than skin deep and may require the professional intervention of a skin specialist. A consultation with a clinician can help identify the possible treatment options and outcomes you can expect based on the extent of scarring.

HOW LONG ACNE SCARS TAKE TO FADE?

Acne scarring often varies in the time it would take to heal. For people with brown or red marks on their skin left behind by a bout of zits, the scarring will heal in a year or two without any treatment. However, cosmetic treatments can clear up the scars within a couple of sessions. A consultation with us will help identify the type of scarring you’re dealing with and how it can be treated.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACNE MARKS AND ACNE SCARS?

Marks left behind by acne are brown or red in colour and are flat, causing no indents or bumps on the skin. These subside on their own in a year or two.

Scarring, on the other hand, causes irregularities in the skin, making them appear raised or with indents. Scarring does not subside over time and may require treatments from a skin specialist.

CAN ACNE SCARS BE 100% REMOVED?

While acne scarring can be reduced through cosmetic treatments over time, one cannot be sure of a 100% acne scar removal. However, your clinician can help improve the scarred skin to a great extent.

IS ACNE SCAR SURGERY WORTH IT?

Laser treatments have shown great potential in healing acne scarring effectively. Most non-surgical treatments are ideal in treating even the most stubborn scars. If you’re looking to opt for surgical means, speaking to a cosmetologist at Cosmetic Skin Doctors Clinic can help you determine your best options.

IS IT WORTH SEEING A DERMATOLOGIST FOR ACNE SCARS?

Dermatologists have helped countless people overcome their skin problems through effective treatments. No matter what your concern, visiting a dermatologist can help determine the cause, the catalyst, as well as the right treatment to deal with the issue.
