Acne can be a difficult and frustrating skin condition to deal with, and it can often leave behind scars that can be just as frustrating to treat. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options available to help both treat acne and minimise acne scars. As a doctor-led skin clinic with a wide range of tools at our disposal, we’re here to help you create a bespoke treatment plan that works for you. In this article, we will explore some of the most effective treatments for acne and acne scarring. HydraFacial and Home Care One of the first steps in treating acne is to ensure that your skin is properly cleaned and exfoliated. That’s where the HydraFacial comes in. This treatment uses a unique, patented technology to exfoliate, extract impurities, decongest and clarify skin. The treatment is quick and painless, and there’s no downtime, which means you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. As a medical clinic, we have access to exclusive boosters and higher strength peels so we truly can customise your HydraFacial to target your skin concerns. HydraFacial is great option for all skin types. But while the HydraFacial is a great way to start treating acne, it’s important to also take care of your skin at home. That’s why we recommend using medical-grade skin home care products like ZO Skin Health. These products are specifically designed to work with your skin to help improve its overall health and appearance. Additionally, we may also recommend prescription strength products like Obagi Clenziderm and tretinoin to help further treat your acne. LED Light Therapy Another great tool for treating acne is LED light therapy. This treatment uses blue and infrared light to kill the bacteria that cause acne, while also reducing inflammation and redness. LED light therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment that can be done in as little as 20 minutes. It’s also a great option for those who are looking for a more natural, drug-free way to treat acne. Chemical Peels Chemical peels are another way to treat acne and minimise acne scars. These treatments use a chemical solution to exfoliate the top layer of skin, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath. At our clinic, we offer a variety of chemical peels, including superficial ones like the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance and medium depth ones like The Perfect Peel. We can also create more targeted peels using the Mesoestetics. These treatments can be customised to meet the unique needs of each individual, making them a great option for all skin types. Microneedling and Morpheus 8 Finally, micro-needling and Morpheus 8 are two of the most effective ways to minimise acne scars. Micro-needling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and encourages the production of collagen. Morpheus 8, combines micro-needling with radio-frequency technology to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate collagen production. Both treatments can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, as well as improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. In conclusion, if you’re struggling with acne and acne scars, there are a variety of treatment options available to you. As a doctor-led skin clinic, we have a wide range of tools at our disposal, including the HydraFacial, LED light therapy, chemical peels, micro-needling, and Morpheus 8.
