Acne is a hugely common skin concern that can affect people from the ages of 13, all the way to adult acne in some cases. It is common for almost everyone to experience acne at some point in their life, and it can be extremely damaging to their confidence as well as their overall skin appearance.
Severe acne can potentially lead to acne scarring which can be difficult to cover up with make up or heal with medicated topical creams. The lingering effects of acne can completely shatter your self-confidence and it is a skin concern that can leave many not wishing to be seen without makeup.
Fortunately, even though there are limited at-home options to deal with the after-effects of acne, your scars don’t have to be permanent.
Here are three procedures that promise spotless, smooth skin and confidence that glows.
GeneO+ is a 3-in-1 super facial that addresses multiple skin concerns at the same time. Combining gentle exfoliation, natural skin oxygenation and skin rejuvenation with essential revitalising nutrients that your skin needs, GeneO+ offers an unparalleled experience.
One of the many benefits of a GeneO+ facial is the reduction of pigmentation from acne, dark spots and improved skin cell production which ensures flawless skin.
Micro-needling is the process of making small punctures to the skin with very fine needles to encourage the production of beta-collagen and elastin. In theory, the collagen produced will help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, scars and dark spots left by acne by smoothening out the skin. This is especially effective in the case of acne scars and ice-pick scars, which are deeper than normal acne scars.
According to a survey done in 2017, micro-needling improved the appearance of scars from 32% to 62%.
In some cases, a dermatologist may recommend dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Ice-pick or pitted scars that cause indentations in facial skin can be ‘filled out’ using soft fillers like collagen or hyaluronic acid.
Skin fillers are usually absorbed into the skin, so following up every few months is necessary to maintain the look.
Our clinics for cosmetic and aesthetic procedures ensure that invasive treatments such as Dermal Fillers are administered by a licensed doctor.
