Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting almost 91% of people. Acne scars are mainly caused due to inflammation of acne blemishes. If the acne scars bother you, then you can undergo acne scar treatment in Melbourne to reduce the scars and achieve tighter, smoother, radiant and youthful skin.
How are acne scars formed?
When sebaceous glands or oil-secreting glands fill up with androgens, they secrete sebum or oil. This oil or sebum gradually dries and mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria present above the hair follicles. As a result, the opening of the hair follicle gets clogged or blocked. This gives rise to more bacteria which causes an acne breakout.
In general, acne blemishes are small in size and create shallow scars that heal quickly. Sometimes, the sebum or oil present in the blemishes spill over into surrounding skin tissues, causing deeper scars that won’t go away. The natural healing response of the body responds to these scars and the skin increases the production of collagen and elastin, and new skin tissues to repair the scars. These newer skin tissues further contribute to uneven skin texture which affects and degrades the overall look and aesthetic appearance of the skin.
Cosmetic non-surgical acne scar treatment in Melbourne can effectively reduce the appearance of acne scarring and provide a smoother skin tone and texture. Your skin appears much smoother and tighter and you achieve a youthful facial appearance.
Different Types of Acne Scar treatment
Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre uses the most advanced TGA & FDA approved treatments to effectively treat acne scars and achieve a tighter and smoother skin tone. The different types of acne scar treatment in Melbourne include:
Fraxel Laser Treatment
Fraxel laser treatment or Fractional Laser is among the most popular methods of acne scar treatment. Fraxel Lasers focus microscopic laser beams of high-intensity light on the targeted area of the skin. These high-intensity laser beams penetrate the middle layer of the skin to create minute wounds. These wounds trigger the natural healing process of the skin, which results in the formation of new healthy skin tissues in the scarring area of the skin. As a result, there is a considerable reduction in the appearance of scarring. These new skin tissues enhance the skin tone and texture, tighten the skin, and make the skin smoother and radiant.
Fraxel laser is a non-invasive, secure, and effective method of treatment for acne scars. With less risk and less downtime, you can go back to your normal routine almost immediately after the procedure.
Vivace Skin Needling
Vivace is an innovative cosmetic non-surgical acne scar treatment, wherein, radiofrequency waves and fractional microneedles are utilised to alleviate, heal or reduce multiple skin issues and signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles. This treatment reduces the pore size, evens out the skin tone and texture, and provides a smooth and radiant complexion. Thus, you achieve tighter, smoother, healthier and beautiful skin.
CO2 Laser treatment
Carbon Dioxide or CO2 laser is one of the most commonly used procedures for acne scar treatment in Melbourne. CO2 Laser Treatment is most effective for the treatment of persistent acne scars.
This procedure is mainly used to treat severe and medium acne scars. In this procedure, high-intensity CO2 Laser beams are focused onto a specific area of facial skin. The heat emitted by the laser beams destroys the dead skin tissue present in the top layer and facilities the growth of new skin tissues. This leads to the increase in the production of elastin or structural proteins for new skin tissues. New skin tissues develop on the scarring area. As a result, the scars begin to disappear and the skin becomes tighter, smoother and more radiant with successive treatment sessions.
A Dermaroller is a device used to perform micro-needling or derma rolling procedures on facial skin for skin rejuvenation and acne scar treatment in Melbourne.
Micro-needling or Derma rolling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to treat acne scars, large pores, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sunspots. This procedure utilises tiny needles made of titanium to systematically prick the top layer of the skin with the FDA approved cosmetic rolling device. This pricking action results in the production of new skin tissues, which rejuvenates the skin and makes it look tighter, smoother, radiant and beautiful.
