The best acne scarring treatments

It's a confidence thing.  

If you’ve never popped a pimple then you might be fibbing! Sometimes we become impatient and before we know it we’ve made the spot worse by trying to pop it. From time to time, this will leave an acne scar.   

If you’re self-conscious about acne scars, there’s no need to stress. We have a range of treatments available to help you reduce the appearance of your acne scars and enjoy a beautiful, clear and glowing complexion! Let’s look at the range of acne-scarring treatments to ensure that you get your confidence back.

A combination of treatments can help visibly reduce your acne scarring. Fractional RFSkin Needling and Cosmetic Grade Peels will rejuvenate the supportive components of your skin to help firm and plump it.

Skin Needling and Fractional RF work to even your skin tone and help reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Cosmetic Grade Peels are a great compliment to  Skin Needling and Fractional RF, to help with resurfacing and your skin’s barrier strength.

Fractional RF

What is Fractional RF? Fractional RF stimulates your skin to firm, plump and repair itself.

How does Fractional RF work? It uses the combination of fractional radio frequency and dermal stamping to reduce pigmentation and the appearance of scars and large pores. It also encourages your skin’s own repair process for a beautiful skin tone.

Skin Needling

What is Skin Needling? Skin Needling (also known as dermal rolling) stimulates the production of your collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. It works to reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring.

How does Skin Needling work? The treatment involves applying a small roller made of tiny surgical needles to the surface of the skin. The roller creates tiny puncture channels that encourage an organic collagen renewal and regeneration response. The treatment is quick and relatively painless with no downtime.

Skin Needling benefits also include stimulation of organic collagen renewal that is perfect for people that cannot undertake laser therapy treatments for skin conditions such as acne scarring.

Cosmetic Grade Peels

What are Cosmetic Grade Peels? Cosmetic Grade Peels work to deeply exfoliate the skin and help to improve the tone and texture of your skin by smoothing out the signs of ageing, sun exposure and congestion.

How do Cosmetic Grade Peels work? You might have age spots, freckles or other discolouration you want to reduce. Or maybe you want to improve the appearance of acne scarring or large pores. Our range of effective Cosmetic Grade Peels help repair and polish your skin with just one visit. There are a variety of peels available for different skin concerns including the Calm and Hydrate Peel, Clear and Bright Peel, Anti-Ageing Peel and the Advanced Brightening and Clearing Peel. We recommend the Advanced Brightening and Clearing Peel and Clear and Bright Peel for clearing acne-prone skin.

At-Home Care  

To support collagen production at home in between your treatments a high-intensity vitamin A serum, like Skinstitut™ Retinol Serum, will be highly advantageous. Using Encapsulated Retinol (a multi-functional delivery system) this hard-working serum has the ability to reverse, prevent and repair skin damage. Ongoing use facilitates collagen and elastin production deep with the skin to smooth out pitted acne scarring while also reducing the appearance of skin discolouration from previous acne breakouts within more superficial layers of the skin.

After your skin has adjusted to using Retinol every evening (you have to gradually introduce this corrector into your regime) you can take your homecare regime up another notch to achieve even better results out of your clinical treatments. Try using the DNC SkinInject Derma Roller 2 – 3 times per week in conjunction with your Retinol Serum. This will increase your product absorption, encourage improved circulation within your skin and assist with collagen production in association with your clinical treatments.

Remember that you can purchase 3 Skinstitut™ products of your choice for $99 or 5 for $149 at every LCA clinic!
