Acne is the world’s most common skin condition and affects millions of people all around the world. Although there are various degrees of this condition the lasting effect that acne can have on patient’s confidence can be dramatic and debilitating. Long after acne has subsided some patients find they are left with scarring as a result of their condition, leading to further unhappiness. If you are one of those suffering with severe breakouts, or the aftermath of acne, then there are plenty of cosmetic treatments out there. It can confusing to know which one is right for you, but here at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer a wide range of solutions to your skin woes and will help you find the right option for you.
There are plenty of cosmetic options open to those wanting to improve the look of their active acne or acne scarring at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, and one of them is dermaroller treatment. Dermaroller treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves a cosmetic roller that is infused with hundreds of micro-needles being rolled over the surface of the skin in order to puncture the top level of the dermis. Dermaroller treatment works as an acne and scarring treatment as it promotes a quicker healing time for the skin, as well as helping to kick-start faster collagen production within the skin. The treatment is perfect for those on the go, with a procedure time of 30 minutes patients can undergo treatment without too much inconvenience caused, although the skin may appear red post-treatment.
Laser treatment for acne and acne scaring
A great option for those wanting to fend off acne and the scarring that comes with the condition is laser treatment. This is an option that many other cosmetic institutes do not offer due to their facilities not having lasers, however Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic believes in giving its patients all the options possible to ensure a positive result. At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we use an Nlite laser to perform laser acne and ace scarring treatment. This is an effective form of treatment as the laser penetrates the skin with a high-energy beam that effectively kills the bacteria that causes acne whilst also promoting the production on collagen to help improve the look of scars – and fend off any further scarring.
If neither of the previous cosmetic treatments are suitable, then chemical peel treatment might be for you. A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that involves applying a thin layer of an acidic solution to the skin that is designed to burn the top layer of dermis away in a safe, controlled way. This is often an effective solution to acne and the scarring that can come with it, as it refreshes the skin and kills the bacteria that causes acne. Peels can also vastly improve the look of scars by revealing the fresher layer of skin that sit under the top layer of ‘damaged’ skin. Chemical peel treatment is offered in three levels of strength (superficial, medium and deep) and the level of damage to your skin as well as a full consultation prior to treatment will determine which strength is right for you.
