Treatment for scars and Pigmentation
Our Dermal Nurses are experienced in skin resurfacing procedures and helping our clients improve the appearance of scars once the acne has been managed or resolved.
In our clinic, scar therapy involves skin resurfacing with Exceed Skin Needling pen for minor scars and discolouration, and advanced skin needling with the ProStamp device for deeper or older scars. For best results, we prepare the skin with active skincare ingredients for 2-4 weeks before starting treatment. Book a Complimentary Scar Therapy Consult with one of our Dermal Nurses to discuss your skin goals and plan your treatment.
When we struggle with acne, it is inevitable that we will have some form of scars left behind. The type of scars we experience is dependent on the severity of the acne, our skin type and our ethnic background. Here is an overview of scar types:
Boxcar scars - are broad, usually box-like depressions with sharply defined edges. Boxcar scars are caused by widespread acne or chickenpox. Boxcar scars most often form on areas like the lower cheeks and jaw, where skin is relatively thick.
Ice pick scars - are smaller, narrow indentations that point down into the skin’s surface. These scars are common on the cheeks. These scars are generally more challenging to treat and will require ProStamp Treatment over several months. You can expect a softening of these scars but may not have a full resolution.
Rolling scars - have varying depths, with sloping edges that make skin appear wavy and uneven.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or dark spots - once your acne heals, it often leaves behind a red, purple or dark patch of skin. These scars may resolve on their own with a good skincare regime, sun protection and time. The scars will resolve more easily if they are red and on younger skin. Once the scars have become dark, they will need resurfacing treatment to help the healing process. People most likely to experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation include those who have darker skin and those who pick or squeeze their acne.
