Acne scars are stubborn, and no single treatment is best for everyone. Various methods may help improve your complexion.
As if getting acne wasn’t bad enough, sometimes it can cause the skin to scar, leaving behind a long-lasting reminder of a troubling condition. Fortunately, it’s not necessarily an irreversible issue.
The bad news: There's no secret ingredient or miracle gadget that makes scars totally disappear. Don't get discouraged, though. A lot of what you think is acne scarring is really just hyperpigmentation or erythema (brown or red spots) rather than an actual change in the texture of the skin.
The good news: At Ideal body clinic we offer a variety of treatments that can be adjusted to each person’s individual needs especially to help you reduce the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation.
Microneedling is a method that some dermatologists use to treat different skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma.
This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. In addition, professionals can use microneedling to deposit medication, such as topical serums or vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.
