Ever wondered what it’s really like to have your acne scars successfully treated (without surgery or aggressive treatment with significant downtime)? Well here is an open-hearted account of a man’s journey on his path to smoother skin.
Meet Muhammad, a man in his 30’s who developed deep acne scarring in his early 20’s. Muhammad recalls, “When I looked at my skin, the acne scarring was the only thing that bothered me. I wasn’t actually aware it was acne scarring on my face, my family told me it was scarring and that it was permanent and I would need to have plastic surgery to fix it.”
Why I decided to take action
There were two reasons I decided to have treatment on my acne scars:
- My fiancé worked for a beauty business and this lead to me assessing my own beauty needs and my acne scarring was something that I definitely wanted to improve.
- We were planning our wedding and I wanted to have my acne scars gone before my wedding as I would be getting photographed a lot.
I was looking for a natural cure
Muhammad had not tried any kind of medical device to treat his scarring as he was concerned about the potential harm it could do and that it wasn’t ‘natural’.
“There are so many devices and treatments that can be used for skin and beauty. It wasn’t until I started looking into the technology that I realised that Sublative treatment with the eTwo device uses the body’s natural healing response to remove acne scarring. I also looked into the safety of the device and was very confident that it was not only a safe treatment but an effective one as well.”
Muhammad was sceptical of treatment as he had had his scarring for such a long time and the scars were very deep. He had a combination of icepick and boxed type scars.
“I was informed how the device would create tiny areas of damage, deep in my skin in the dermis so that would trigger my body’s natural healing response. This made sense to me as I had always thought that natural healing could work.”
“Following my extensive research into the technology, I decided to go ahead with Sublative treatment for my acne scars. After my first treatment I started seeing results after a few weeks. I started to believe in it and I was told that after 6-7 treatments I would see a huge difference.”
“The first treatment was a bit uncomfortable, I wouldn’t say it was painful, but it was a hot treatment. There was numbing cream available if I needed it and after the treatment they used a cooling cream to take the heat out of my skin. The first treatment they did on some of the lower settings on the machine. After the second treatment and the comments I was getting, I really started believing in the treatment and they increased the power of the treatments. After the second treatment I was used to the heat and the treatments were fine. The thing that made me fall in love with this treatment is the results that I started seeing almost immediately.”
“A few weeks after the second treatment I had friends and work colleagues coming up to me saying that they noticed a change in my skin, the scars were lighter”.
The true impact of my treatment
“If I see myself in photos now I can see a massive change in my skin. It has given me the confidence to speak about the treatment and to share my story.
The highlight has been my friends and colleagues coming up to me and telling me how good my skin is looking.”
