Acne scarring can have a big impact on mental wellbeing and confidence. At VIVA we understand the importance and power of self confidence. With skin treatments that target acne scarring, we can improve not only the surface of your skin but your mental well being. Before we treat acne scarring its important to understand the of causes acne and how we can cure acne to prevent scarring. Once active breakouts are slowed and controlled, treatment for scarring can be effective to achieve smooth glowing skin and restore a healthy complexion.
What causes Acne?
Acne occurs when the pore wall (the tiny space that separates the inside of your hair follicle from your skin) becomes clogged with dead skin cells and oil. When the oil produced by your glands mixes with the dead skin cells on your face it can block the opening of the follicle which leads to spots and blackheads.
How do you cure Acne?
Acne is caused when pores become blocked by oil or dead skin, which causes inflammation. To treat acne and remove scars, the first step is to reduce the cause. With the use of specially designed chemicals such as Salicylic Acid, the products that we use are formulated to eliminate acne but keep your skin moisturized. When removing acne, it is important to only use products that have been specifically formulated for treating and repairing the skin.
What causes Acne scarring?
Acne scarring is caused by abnormal healing of the skin after a breakout. Quite often this is due to picking or popping inflamed pustules or inflamation of the surrounding tissues.
What treatments are there to remove Acne scars?
There are several treatments available for the removal of acne scars that are suitable for all skin types. During your consultation your VIVA doctor or nurse will advise on the best treatment option. At VIVA we combine microneedling using Skinpen with Platelet Rich Plasma therapy to treat a range of skin conditions including stretch marks, scars and sagging skin.
