If you’re facing troubles with your skin, it’s important to know what you’re dealing with and act swiftly. A great example is differentiating between treating acne itself and acne scarring.
Different Types of Acne Scarring
There are typically three different types of acne scarring, and they require unique approaches. We can treat all three quickly and effectively at our skin and beauty salon in Hatfield.
The types of acne scars are:
- Post inflammatory scars
- Ice pick scars
- Box scars
Post Inflammatory Acne Scars
Post inflammatory acne scarring is caused by mild acne. It appears as flat, slightly brownish or reddish marks. Post inflammatory scars may fade on their own in time, but they can also be treated fairly easily.
Ice Pick and Box Acne Scars
Both ice pick and box scars are caused by more severe bouts of acne. Left untreated, they might be significantly noticeable and permanent. In the past, not much was known about how to deal with ice pick and box acne scarring. At BeauSynergy, we aid in recovery from significant scars – although healing 100% might not always be possible.
Acne Scarring Treatments
If you’ve had an acne flare up or are noticing scarring, it’s important to get in touch with us right away to minimise the damage. We can help you formulate a complete treatment and scar recovery plan.
Post inflammatory acne treatments include use of the Cryopen or Dermaroller and skin peels. Treatments for ice pick and box acne may include use of the Dermaroller, Cryolift, application of Danne enzymes and LED light therapy.
The micro-needling Dermaroller or Dermastamp are ideal to treat and transform acne scarred skin. The rolling and penetration into the skin of the hundreds of fine needles stimulates collagen production and encourages skin regeneration.
Chemical or acid skin peels remove the outer layer of skin. We prefer superficial peels that minimise irritation and peel with light penetration. The acid or chemical peels aren’t painful but may be just a little tingley Afterwards, recovery time should be minimal with only light pinkness and flaking.
Danne DMK Enzymes
Danne enzymes work with the body’s natural regeneration properties to remove dead cells and promote the growth of new ones. Ideal for healing and smoothing acne scarred skin, they are blended specifically for each person.
A painless, relaxing, rejuvenating facial, the Cryolift induces collagen formation and improves the tone and texture of skin. The regeneration and hydration of the skin causes the skin to fill and plump and so reduce the effect of acne scarring.
LED Light Therapy
Also relaxing and painless, LED light therapy by Dermalux is especially ideal for post inflammatory acne as it’s rejuvenating and soothing. This treatment also energises cellular functions and hydrates the skin to 300% making it great for healing purposes..
