What is Acne Scarring?
Acne scarring can sometimes develop as a complication of acne. Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring, but it’s more common when the most serious types of spots (nodules and cysts) burst and damage nearby skin. These scars can be unsightly and can be damaging to self-esteem.
There are a variety of treatments available to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, which can help to restore the condition of your skin and improve your self-confidence. It is not uncommon for a patient to use a combination of therapies in order to achieve optimal results.
At A New You, we have a team of dedicated professionals, who are highly trained to examine the condition of your skin and provide acne treatments to reduce the problem.
Some Of Our Most Popular Treatments For Acne Scars
Dermal Roller/Dermapen® is a micro-needling technique, which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself.* Post-treatment Derma Roller leaves the skin looking visibly brighter, firmer, smoother and clearer.
The treatment is pain-free and requires no down time. Recovery times are significantly shorter than Laser treatments.
Dermal Fillers can be used to lift depressions in the skin, making it an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of stubborn or deeper scars. An injection procedure what uses collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite in the fillers, fills out problem wrinkled and creased skin.
For improved effectiveness, it’s not uncommon to combine Dermal Filler with Dermal Roller therapy.
We offer revolutionary RecoSMA® Laser Resurfacing treatment, providing patients with a non-invasive technique to stimulate the repair of damaged tissues such as scars or stretch marks.*
Due to the unique coldness of the laser (skin temp. doesn’t rise over 36.6 °C) treatment, the procedure does not cause scarring or change natural pigmentation of the skin.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a technique, which utilizes your own growth factors and re-targets them to a specific area of concern to encourage repair and regeneration.*
PRP therapy produces long-lasting effects with little chance of allergic reaction, as the platelets come from the patients’ own blood. A highly effective treatment for rejuvenating the skin and reducing signs of damage such as stretch marks and scars.*
Peels are designed to remove dead skin cells,* resulting in a renewed and a healthy-looking complexion. Combined with ingredients to reduce inflammation, this can be an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of rosacea.*
This is all achieved without surgery, and the subsequent side effects associated with surgery. It is painless although for a few days you may see skin peeling and a mild swelling on the area that has been treated.
