Acne Scars FAQ

by Jacob Getty

What are acne scars?

Acne scars are often the result of extreme or persistent bursts that can destroy your skin’s surface and your underlying tissues. When a breakup becomes apparent, the body creates collagen to help healing. If your body overproduces collagen, you may grow raised acne cicatrices, which are most commonly seen in your chest and back. If your body contains very little collagen, you may have depressed acne scars or tiny pits on your skin which are usually seen on the face.

Our team have been using advanced therapy, including fractional laser resurfacing, chemical skin and microneduling rejuvenation, to target acne scarring.

What is laser fraction resurfacing?

We uses laser skin resurfacing to target and reduce acne scars. Laser technology works by providing precise light beams deep into the skin dermis, where miniscule piercing of the scar tissue results. This starts the cure of your body, which promotes collagen development and helps strain the underlying tissues. This is a good choice for patients who want the presence of typical acne scarring to be reduced. It can be used on your back, chest and face. Flexible laser therapy encourages a healthy, cleaner skin with few to no side effects and typically requires little or no recovery time.

What are chemical peels?

This procedure includes applying a chemical solution to your facial skin, or “peeling.” It is intended to gently remove the top layer of your skin to minimise skin damage such as uneven skin tone, fine lines and acne scars. Depending on the needs and the general purpose of the treatment, the chemical solution can be applied gently or rubbled more firmly.

In order to give patients complete and previsible chemical peel treatment with little time down, Dr. Gin uses Vitalize Peel ®, one of the best and strongest chemical peels accessible. Vitalize Peel’s design is designed to exfoliate your skin , making your skin softer, cleaner and more effective.

How does microneedling function?

The use of small needles to produce micro Wounds on the skin surface to stimulate the formation of collagen and new skin is part of microneedling. This cutting-edge procedure can be used to improve acne scarring and to improve stretch marks and wrinkles. Due to the superficiality of the small wounds caused by the microneedling operation, the treatment involves only topical numbing creams. Microneedling is conducted under our guidance by a licenced RN at Drink Tattoo Removal Clinic as allowed by law.
