What can be done to improve acne scarring?Face 24 Aug 2016
If you looking for acne scar treatment in Hampstead, you’re not alone. The Telegraph newspaper reported a rise in adult acne in January of this year. An increase of 92% is a significant rise and in response to demand, more and more investment is going into improving scar treatment all the time. Now it’s possible to have acne scar treatment that is convenient, safe and effective. Plus, it really works!
Here at the Aesthetics Lab , We have always prioritised acne and acne scar treatment, as we understand how isolating the skin condition can be. Famous acne sufferers include Kiera Knightley, whom it was claimed in the Huffington Post, requires additional make up to cover up blemishes. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are famously pocked with acne scars, not that it has hurt their careers at all! Let’s have a look at some of the various treatments we can offer, how they work and what sort of results you can expect.
Skin peels work by causing the very top layer of your skin to peel off and new healthier, less scarred skin to appear in its place. We offer peels designed specifically with acne and scarring in mind. A solution that includes salicylic acids and pumpkin pulp will be painted onto your skin, left for 10 minutes and then washed off.
After a few days, your skin will feel tighter, an indication that the peeling is about to start. In response to the peel solution, the body’s natural repair system will increase collagen levels and your cell renewal rate, resulting in younger skin tissue and a smoother looking skin surface.
Skin needling stimulates the body’s repair processes by making a series of tiny puncture wounds in the skin, where new healthier cells are required. The procedure doesn’t hurt and there are minimal risks involved, but in response to the tiny wounds, collagen levels and the cell generation rate will increase. New, less marked skin will appear in place of your older, damaged skin. The Al Plasma facial we offer involves skin needling, massage and healing LED light therapy.
Utilising the same concept of the body being tricked into producing fresh skin tissues to replace damaged layers, a laser light is targeted at the acne scar areas that require attention; the damaged skin layers, to provide a response. Although slightly uncomfortable, this treatment is not painful and the results are enviably younger, fresher skin for a more youthful look.
