Many of us will have experienced or are currently experiencing the distress and embarrassment of an acne breakout. Even though acne is something most people eventually ‘grow out of’, for many people, acne causes significant stress, suffering and more so if the acne results in scarring.
If you have acne or acne scars that make you feel self-conscious or upset, there is a safe and effective treatment option available to you at Laser Me and Beauty to reduce its appearance and make your skin look smoother. The best way to avoid acne scarring is to effectively treat acne before it causes acne scarring.
Acne or acne vulgaris (also known as pimples) is a common chronic disorder of the oil glands (sebaceous glands). The effects of acne start with greasy secretions from oil glands in the skin, with the plugging of the tiny openings of the hair follicles. If the openings are small this will lead to a white head, if they are larger it can lead to a black head. Both are due to pores in the skin clogging, leading to a red, inflamed acne break out.
Acne generally occurs in areas where there is a high concentration of oil glands, mainly the chest, face, neck, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is much more than a skin condition, the effects of acne can be loss of confidence or lack of self esteem. Laser Me and Beauty in Shoalhaven have the technology available to effectively tackle acne breakouts.
Acne scarring is a side effect of active or inflamed acne that has not been treated. Some people or skin types are more susceptible to acne scarring with family history playing a big part.
Acne scarring is a result of previous acne breakouts causing damage to the surrounding tissue. If the body doesn’t produce enough collagen a depression in the skin is caused. If too much collagen is produced then the result is a raised scar. Laser Me and Beauty have one of the most effective Acne Scar Treatments in Shoalhaven, the Adeline Star with elōs™ technology, proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars for all skin types, including darker skin.
At Laser Me and Beauty we offer a free acne and acne scar consultation to talk about your skin or body concerns. We will advise on the best course of treatment and answer any questions you might have on pricing, the technology we use and how long a treatment or series of treatments will take. To book a free consultation you can give our friendly team a call.
How does a treatment feel?
The sensation is of your skin heating up in the treatment area. It isn’t painful, it is rather similar to a slight electric shock. Your skin gets used to it very quickly.
How often should I have treatments?
To get the best results, treatments should be done once every month for the full course (usually four treatments) then a follow up treatment every 6 months as maintenance. Waiting one month between treatments allows your body to construct more collagen and elastin matrix in the epidermal and dermal skin layers.
What is the downtime after a treatment?
There is no downtime with Adeline star acne or acne scar treatment. The skin will have redness similar to a light sunburn, which is the treatment outcome we are looking for. This redness calms down within 24 hours. You can return to work the same day and return to active exercise the next day.
How much do Adeline Star treatments cost?
The cost of your acne or acne scar treatment will depend on many factors – your skin type, extent of acne breakout and age. You can view our price list online as a guide, however the best way to get an accurate price or cost for your facial rejuvenation needs is by booking a free personalised consultation with our qualified clinician.
