What Acne Scar Treatment is Best For Your Skin?
Acne scars are permanent indentations that occur on the skin as a result of moderate to severe acne. Scars come in all shapes and sizes. The most common are ice pick scars (deep and narrow scars that look like the skin has been punctured), boxcar scars (shallow scars with well-defined edges) and rolling scars (rolling or wave-like depressions that aren’t clearly defined like boxcar scars). If you are on the hunt for an acne scar treatment, here are three possible solutions available at Simply Laser.
Dermapen Skin Needling
Skin needling is a recognised treatment optimising skin regeneration as well as treating acne scars. This technique involves Dermapen, a revolutionary skin needling technology to stimulate the production of collagen and new skin renewal by making micro-punctures to the skin.
By creating these micro-punctures in the skin, this acne scar treatment encourages the skin’s natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin for smooth skin. Before the procedure starts, a layer of numbing cream is applied to the face. We then gently glide the Dermapen along the skin so it can penetrate the surface layer, or, the epidermis. You may feel a slightly prickly or hot sensation over the boney areas of your face, but you will not feel any pain. Most people will experience some heat, redness and swelling post-treatment. These side effects are usually mild and disappear within a couple of days. The healing process for skin needling is generally 2 to 5 days to heal.
DMK Enzyme Therapy
The latest acne scar treatment available at Simply Laser is the DMK Enzyme Therapy Facial. This treatment uses enzymes to strengthen your skin’s structural integrity, remove dead skin cells and promote oxygen flow through the skin. Not only does it offer amazing anti-ageing benefits, but it also treats acne scars on all skin types.
This is not your traditional facial. DMK Enzyme Therapy is a hard setting mask applied to the face, neck and décolletage. This treatment penetrates the skin on a deeper cellular level to treat imbalances like acne and scarring. After 45 minutes, the mask is removed. You will notice a “veiny” pattern across the skin. This is referred to as the "plasmatic effect" and means that the treatment has achieved a perfect balance by delivering fresh oxygenated blood to the skin.
EndyMed Skin Resurfacing is a highly-effective acne scar treatment that uses the latest fractional resurfacing technologies. Fractional skin resurfacing focuses on targeting small areas of the skin to remove any damage while leaving the surrounding skin intact. New collagen is produced, which helps reduce the appearance of scarring and acne. Using the unique 3DEEP system, this treatment creates radio frequency pulses to penetrate three layers deep into the skin, heating it to encourage the reproduction of natural collagen.
EndyMed has been designed to reach deep into the skin without overheating it or causing any pain. We do offer anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area if you believe you may experience some discomfort from this treatment.
