Acne Scarring

Symptoms Treated

Acne Scarring

While acne is most common amongst teenagers, it affects countless adults too. And those who did suffer from acne in their youth are usually left with scars that can affect their confidence in both work and social situations.

Acne is the result of hair follicles becoming plugged with oil and dead skin and it usually occurs on the face, back, chest and shoulders. If acne becomes severe, large cysts and nodules form and the skin starts to swell from deep within. These lumps are incredibly painful, embarrassing and can lead to scarring.

There are several types of acne scars that can be treated at Clinica Lase, including:

  • Hypertrophic: Scars that are thick and lumpy
  • Atrophic: Scars that are thin, flat and depressed
  • Rolling: Scars that are broad and depressed, often with slanting edges
  • Boxcar: Scars that are broad with sharp edges
  • Ice-Pick: Scars that are narrow, deep and pitted

At Clinica Lase, there are various ways that we can treat acne-prone skin and scars, leaving you with a clearer, smoother and brighter complexion. Chemical peels, LED light therapy, Excel V, Pico Genesis and Laser Genesis are some of the treatments that we use to treat acne and scarring on a daily basis.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to skin concerns and will often also refer you to a health specialist such as a Nutritionist or Naturopath to complement your in-clinic treatments.

What to Expect

During your consultation, you will be asked about your diet and lifestyle habits to help us get a better understanding of why you may be experiencing this skin condition. We will also review your medical history and past treatments to get a full picture before we recommend a tailored plan for your skin.

Before your laser treatment commences, your skin will be cleaned and prepped. Once the laser is applied to your skin, you can expect a warming sensation that most patients find very relaxing. Most patients are able to tolerate the laser treatment but if you are concerned about pain and discomfort, a topical cream can be applied prior to your treatment.

If your laser treatment will be paired with a chemical peel, you can expect a slight tingling sensation once the peel starts to dry.

The average treatment will last between 20 and 30 minutes and some patients will require more than one treatment before the desired results are achieved.

Following your treatment, you will be provided with post-care instructions that should be carefully followed to accelerate healing. Your clinician will also let you know when your next treatment should be scheduled based on how your skin responds to the initial treatment.

Pre-Treatment

To avoid any complications, it’s important not to tan or use any self-tanners for at least 4 weeks prior to your treatment.

Certain medications and products will also need to be avoided for two weeks before your treatment as they can cause adverse effects such as bruising.

Depending on the type of laser treatment you will be receiving, your clinician may provide you with products to use in the week leading up to your treatment that will help enhance your results.

If at any point in the time leading up to your treatment you change medications, you will need to let your clinician know so that your treatment can be adjusted if necessary. If you injure your skin before your treatment, you may need to reschedule your appointment as open wounds should not be exposed to chemicals or a laser.

Recovery

Your recovery experience will depend on the treatment that was used and how your skin reacts to the laser or chemical peel.

Most patients can expect some mild redness and swelling following their treatment but this will subside within a few hours. Patients should avoid any direct sun exposure for at least two weeks after their treatment and a sunscreen with a high SPF should always be used.

Any waxing and other hair removal procedures such as IPL should be avoided for at least a week after your laser treatment to allow the skin to heal properly.

It’s also critical that you follow all of your clinician’s post-treatment instructions to protect your skin in between your sessions and achieve the desired results.

Peace of Mind

State of the art medical-grade lasers are used to perform all of the treatments at Clinica Lase. All of our clinicians also hold government approved laser safety qualifications. Our in-depth knowledge and experience are what set us apart in the cosmetic sector. We use our experience to ensure that we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. Before any treatment is administered, we prefer to test a small patch of the patient’s skin to assess skin reactions and patient comfort levels. Your safety and wellbeing is our top priority.

Diversity within treatments is how we can get some of our best results. Not one shoe fits all is one of our mottos at Clinica Lase. Here we have combined Pico Genesis and LimeLight to achieve the desired result, a beautiful more even complexion.

The cool weather and heating can often leave our skin feeling dull, dehydrated and sensitive. One of our go to products this winter is the PCA Hyaluronic mask. One ingredient that makes this product so special is Sodium Hyaluronate – a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid that occludes the skin, attracting and holding 1,000 times its weight in moisture within the skin. PCA's Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask is great all for seasons but especially in winter when we need that extra boost of luxurious nourishment.
