Acne Scarring and Rosacea Treatments
Acne, acne scarring and rosacea can have a negative impact on an individual’s confidence.
Acne occurs where pilosebaceous glands situated under the surface of the skin become blocked resulting in white heads and black heads and eventually become inflamed producing the red spots which are typically seen in acne patients. Acne may appear on the face, back and chest and can result in acne scarring in a small number of affected people.
With the use of laser technology acne scarring can be improved after a few sessions. Acne scarring treatment using laser technology will usually require a course of several acne scarring treatments at regular intervals to get the maximum improvement in a patient’s acne scarring condition. Additional sessions may be required after the initial course of treatments to get the best results.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that mainly affects the face and can cause great mental distress. The early symptoms of rosacea begin with episodes of flushing where the skin turns red. Over time other symptoms may develop which can include:
- burning and stinging sensations
- permanent redness
- aggressive spots
- small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible
- thickening and enlarging of the skin on and around the nose.
Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can help to remove the symptoms of redness and visible blood vessels. These treatments may also improve flushing.
