Have you Googled “best acne scar treatment” and been confronted with an endless list of options – creams, gels and serums as well as treatments such as laser, radio frequency, skin needling and dermal fillers? So which do you choose? How do you know what works and what’s best for your skin type and your particular skin condition? Choosing the wrong treatment can put the health of your skin at risk, or simply be a drain on your pocket if it has no effect.
In this article we look at the various acne scar treatment options and explain why we use the latest radio frequency technology for effective treatment of acne scarring.
Acne Scar Treatment Options
Creams, Gels and Serums
The most popular creams, gels and serums include products such as Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, Scar Gel, Oxygenating Foundation, Scar Cream, Intensive Blemish Serum, Dark Spot Corrector Serum, Salicylic Acid Treatment, Scar Diminishing Serum, Radiance Serum and Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask just to name a few. At around $50 a pop, the cost quickly adds up. The key draw-back with these products is that they are applied to the epidermis, the top layer of the skin, however the dermis (the second layer of the skin) is actually where it is needed to make a noticeable difference.
Advanced Cosmetic Treatments
If you’re looking for a more advanced treatment option for your scars, then you may be considering laser, radio frequency, skin needling or fillers. To find out what treatment will suit your individual skin condition, the best approach is to first have your skin assessed by a skin expert as your treatment options will depend on the type and severity of your acne scarring. The skin experts at Feel Good Laser & Skin Clinic in Richmond will analyse your skin and then recommend a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
One option that we have seen particularly good results from is radio frequency treatment using Sublative technology. Using radio frequency energy, we are able to get more energy into the dermis (the second layer of the skin), where it is needed to stimulate the repair of acne scars.
Sublative™ Technology for Acne Scars
Sublative™ Facial Rejuvenation uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology to effectively treat acne scars. It sends energy into the dermis where it stimulates an increase in production of both collagen and elastin with minimal impact to the epidermis (the top layer of the skin). There is no downtime as your skin begins to repair from the inside out, effectively evening out and improving the appearance of acne scars for smoother, more radiant skin.
For acne scar treatment that actually works, at Feel Good Laser & Skin we specialise in the treatment of acne scarring with personalised treatment plans tailored specifically to your needs and use only the latest technology and cosmeceutical-grade skincare.
