Do Not Suffer With Your Acne Scars Any Longer

If you suffer from acne, you are certainly not alone. Most people, no matter their age, gender or race experience pimples and acne at some point in their lives, and it is especially prominent when we’re teenagers. In fact, around 80% of teenagers suffer from the condition. While acne itself is bad enough, if not treated correctly, it can lead to permanent scarring that does nothing to help a person’s self esteem.

While prevention is better than cure � i.e. a proper skincare regime, healthy diet, plenty of sleep, lots of water and no squeezing or picking pimples � if you already have acne scarring, it’s reassuring to know there’s plenty of options to treat the condition and help reduce the appearance of the scars, and skin care clinics can help you.

First, a bit of information about the cause of acne scars: while picking and squeezing your skin can lead to scarring, it’s not the only cause (contrary to popular belief). Certain types of pimples � and there are a lot of types (whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts) � are more prone to scarring, even when left alone. The pimples that tend to stay below the skin’s surface and form deep, painful lumps, like nodules and cysts, can easily cause scarring as the inflammation gets trapped under the skin.

A good Melbourne skin care clinic will help you treat any active and existing acne and prevent further scarring from occurring, and then customise a treatment plan to care for and treat the scarring you already have. Medical-grade equipment is used to resurface the skin, and one of the most popular treatment methods is the Hydra Facial system, used for acne scarring treatments in Melbourne.

The Hydra Facial system is essentially the next generation of microdermabrasion treatments. It provides the same fabulous resurfacing effects, but in a less invasive and harsh way. Acne scars can be almost impossible to get rid of with at-home treatments, because applying topical treatments or mild exfoliants only targets the outer layer of your skin, where the deal skin cells are. To really treat those scars that are deeper in the skin’s surface, beauty therapists use a strong exfoliating and resurfacing treatment so that the dead skin cells are removed and the new skin beneath can be targeted.

Acne scars need lots of nutrients and hydration, but these hydrating treatments can’t be absorbed if there is a layer of dead skin blocking them out. That’s why the Hydra Facial medical grade treatments can provide incredible results, removing dead cells and getting a deeper clean than any other treatment on the market today � it is the favourite treatment of celebrities and beauty therapists across Melbourne!

Enjoy the confidence of smooth, acne-scar free skin with a Melbourne HydraFacial treatment � you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how simple, painless and cost effective acne care treatments can be, and how clear and healthy your skin can look.
