ACNE AND TREATMENT OF ACNE SCARS
Very few people go through life without suffering from acne at some point. Acne outbreaks are particularly painful during puberty, when looking good is such an important part of young persons’ identity. Acne can occur at any stage in life, from infancy to the mature age. Hormonal imbalance during menopause can cause acne outbreaks and make many women’s life miserable. While acne is not serious medical condition, for those who suffer from acne it is serious indeed for their social life and personal well-being.
Just when we think that our problem with acne is over, we are left with acne scars, a painful reminder of what we believed we left in the past. Acne scars are very difficult to conceal even when we think we outgrew acne and our skin cleared up. They erode our sense of self and self-confidence and affect our relationships and social life. Fortunately, there are very effective treatments for both acne and acne scars.
Today, there are many very effective treatments available for those who suffer from acne and acne scars. These treatments can improve even severe conditions. We can offer our clients a range of appropriate treatments at FACE Cosmedical.
Depending on their condition, we offer our clients a selection of non-surgical treatments and procedures that will make their skin look healthy and beautiful again. In addition to our professional treatment, our clients are provided with a professional grade skin care products they can use at home to follow up the treatment. With our help, they can get rid even of residual scaring, which often stay behind long after their fight with acne is over.
THE CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF ACNE
Acne is formed when the dead skin cells clog the skin pores. The skin is constantly growing and shedding old, dead cells. But, when the skin produces too much sebum or skin oil, these dead cells start sticking together and accumulating in the pores. Bacteria named P. acne (Propionibacterium acnes, also called Cutibacterium acnes) makes things worse by causing inflammation around the pore, and as it multiplies it forms a nodule or cyst we know as acne.
Acne may look like:
- Whiteheads – pores that are clogged and closed
- Blackheads – open clogged pores that show oil and bacteria
- Papules – tiny red bumps that are the results of inflammation
- Pimples – papules that are enlarged and are full of pus
- Nodules – large, painful lumps under the skin
- Cystic Lesions – nodules full of pus
It is not clear why some people never develop acne and some are constantly plagued by them. But, some factors increase person’s risk for acne outbreaks, or make worse acne that they already have. Hormonal imbalance, certain medication and stress are some of them. Rebecca will talk to you about all your concerns regarding your acne from the medical point of view. She might suggest changes in your nutrition and changes in your skin care in addition to the acne skin treatment.
As the skin debris continues to accumulate in nodules or cysts, they burst, on their own or because you could not resist picking on them. The skin eventually heals, but as it heals it forms a scar. The more acne you had, the more scars you will end up with, having constantly to cover them with makeup, or, if you are man, growing beard to hide them.
GETTING RID OF ACNE SCARS FOREVER
At some point, your acne outbreaks will be over. Unfortunately, you will be left with acne scars, a permanent reminder of that painful and unpleasant experience. You might even feel that scars are worse than acne because you will be forced to spend a considerable amount of time concealing them and you will know that there is very little chance of them disappearing on their own. Fortunately, FACE Cosmedical has developed innovative solutions for permanent elimination of acne scars, giving you your clear, beautiful face back.
There are two basic types of acne scars: atrophic scars, formed when your skin loses its volume, and fairly uncommon hypertrophic scars, such as keloids, formed when the skin increases its volume. You might also have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or PIH, the skin discolouration caused by the excess of melanin, the result of skin inflammation.
There are three main types of atrophic acne scars:
- Ice Pick Scars – narrow and deep scars that extend all the way into the skin.
- Boxcar Scars – oval or round scars, depressions in the skin with steep upright sides. Boxcar scars are wider than ice pick scars and they make the skin look pitted and uneven.
- Rolling Scars – they cause wave-like dips in the healthy-looking skin. Compared with boxcar scars, rolling scars are not well defined.
At FACE Cosmedical, Rebecca can help reduce and even completely erase several types of acne scars and skin discoloration, greatly improving the look of the skin on your face.
Whether you came to FACE Cosmedical because you want to improve the tone and texture of your skin or because you need in-depth professional treatment of more severe acne scars, we will work with you to design the right treatment plan that will permanently solve your acne scars problem. Our advanced, well-researched programs are supported by a number of clinical trials, and will effectively and safely return to you your clear, beautiful skin.
FACE Cosmedical’s AVAILABLE TREATMENTS FOR ACNE AND ACNE SCARS
FACE Cosmedical has a range of treatments for acne and acne scars that are available to our clients in order to permanently solve their skin issues and help them regain their healthy, clear skin.
Dermafrac is an innovative treatment that combines microdermabrasion, removing the superficial layers of the skin together with the scar tissue, and micro-needling, a targeted injection of special serum. Dermafrac creates dramatic improvement in the skin texture and a significant relief from a range of other skin issues. The serum or clarifying solution used for this treatment is a mix of salicylic and lactic acids. The serum’s job is to open clogged pores and destroy bacteria, preventing future acne breakouts. Dermafrac is also an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation caused by inflammation, a commonly occurring skindiscolouration around acne flare-ups. Dermafrac clears the pigmentation and makes skin clearer and brighter, simultaneously minimizing wrinkles and file lines on the face.
MEDICAL SKIN PEELS
Medical Grade Peel exfoliates or removes outer layers of the skin using various chemicals. This very effective treatment erases many different kinds of skin damage, leaving behind softer, smoother, healthy looking skin. There is a range of chemical solutions that can be used for this procedure, such as salicylic acid and lactic acid. We custom-design treatment for each client using the solution that is the most appropriate, depending on the severity of the condition. Medical grade peel is comfortable and fast-acting, effectively controlling client’s acne without taking too much time from client’s regular life.
Omnilux therapy uses LED light to treat acne, acne scars and skin hyperpigmentation caused by the inflammation. Our Omnilux system is an industry standard, offering our clients a range of benefits for skin issues. Omnilux Blue destroys the P. Acne, effectively reducing skin inflammation. At FACE Cosmedical we combine OmniluxBlue with Omnilux Revive, effecting visible reduction in skin lesions caused by acne, as well as significant improvement in skin discoloration caused by inflammation.
POST-TREATMENT MEDICAL-GRADE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
Our professional treatment is without a doubt the best way of controlling acne and acne scars. But, in addition to it, we offer our clients post-treatment medical-grade skin care products they can use at home to continue taking care of their skin. We offer high quality skin product line like Synergie, which contain special formulation for keeping acne-prone skin clear and healthy. They address the underlying issues at their roots, before the outbreak of acne, keeping the skin healthy and radiant. We suggest our clients the most appropriate line and product depending on their need, for the best and long-lasting results.
Subcision is specially formulated treatment for depressed scars. This medical procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. It includes using a special hypodermic needle to break down the fibrotic strands that tie the scar tissue to the underlying healthy tissue. The treatment releases the skin upper layer, reducing the skin depression and effectively eliminating the acne depressed scar. More collagen and elastin is produced by skin as it heals, improving its hydration and creating healthy skin with great skin tone.
DERMALFILLERS AND NATURAL COLLAGEN STIMULATORS
Acne scar tissue can leave visible depressions that can become a cosmetic concern. To smooth such skin, we use Dermal Fillers, injectable solutions that rapidly restore skin volume. Dermal Fillers also boosts skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Although this procedure does not produce permanent results, it makes immediate and long-lasting improvement in skin appearance.
After completing the treatment at FACE Cosmedical you might feel like your skin never looked so beautiful. It is to be expected, since Rebecca is expert in skin anatomy and its complexities, the knowledge necessary in order to produce such effective treatment and superb results.
