You don’t have to put up with acne and acne scarring.

Often people are told ‘you’ll grow out of it’, only to find their acne and the scars it has caused last long into adulthood.

Acne and acne scarring can have a significant negative impact on self-confidence that reaches into every aspect of a person’s life. It can discourage us from applying for job interviews, affect our self-confidence in the dating world and keep us from putting ourselves forward for amazing opportunities.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

While there is no immediate cure, active acne and acne scarring can both be treated with scientifically proven methods such as medical-grade peels, medical micro needling or fractional laser to restore smooth, blemish-free skin and self-confidence.

Our sister clinic, Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic, specialises restoring acne-prone skin to it’s prime using two vital steps:

  1. Treating Active Acne
  2. Reducing the appearance of Acne Scarring

Overcoming stubborn acne
The first step to overcoming the signs of acne is to treat any active acne that exists. There’s no point addressing scars, if they’re likely to recur.

If you’ve tried dietary changes and over-the-counter acne cleansers, but your acne persists, a visit to a medical doctor with an interest in acne treatment may be helpful as we can prescribe more effective medical treatments tailored to your needs.

At Skinovation, we recommend a range of Doctor-only treatments for stubborn active acne, including:

  • Medicated cleansers and scrubs
  • Therapeutic chemical peels
  • Transdermal infusions
  • Blue light therapy

Reversing acne scarring
Acne scarring occurs when glands below the skin’s surface are irritated by bacteria, causing a painful, swollen cyst. This cyst will eventually rapture, allowing infectious sebum to seep out and destroy the surrounding skin tissue, causing a depressed scar to form.

Fortunately, scarring can be reversed using a range of treatments that encourage collagen production and healthy skin regeneration.

Depending on your unique situation, these treatments may include:

  • Medical micro needling
  • High strength chemical peels applied only to scars
  • Red light treatment to rebuild collagen
