Due to the social and psychological effects of acne scarring, many people are not happy with the appearance of their skin. So why do so many people leave it untreated? Which of the top six reasons in this article can you relate to?
Acne typically rears its head in the adolescent years and paying for effective treatment in your teens or early twenties can be costly and simply not an option for many, especially if you’re on a student or apprentice income. Leaving active acne untreated often leads to scarring – deep crater-style scars, raised scars and discolouration are all the tell-tail signs of previous acne.
TOP 6 REASONS FOR UNTREATED ACNE SCARS
1. Bad advice
So many people we see in our clinic tell us that they thought their scarring was permanent and nothing could be done about it because someone had told them so. If you are one of these people, please come in to see the skin specialists at Eden Laser Clinics for a professional opinion.
Some people are skeptical about the options available (and we can’t blame them with so many marketing messages out there claiming to be “miracle” scar product) and simply “let it be”. Research your options and go with the treatments that have been clinically studied and proven to work.
3. Too many options
With literally hundreds of options on the market, it can be overwhelming to even know where to start. You don’t want to waste time and money on anything that’s not going to deliver results. Some people try every “remedy” they can get their hands on only to be frustrated with the lack of improvement in their scars.
Many people try various products or other cosmetic treatments that do not work as they cannot penetrate deep enough into the skin. Effective acne scar treatment must be able to get deep into the dermis to be able to remodel the scar tissue and stimulate new cell production.
4. Never had a skin analysis
The best first step you can take when dealing with facial scars is to see a skin expert for a proper skin analysis. They will grade your acne scars and let you know that type of scarring you have and then recommend a tailored treatment plan for you.
5. Skin care – broken promises
Skin care, whether it be in the form of a gel, serum, cream or cleanser, can often be misleading with the way they lead a consumer to believe in the results it promises. The fact is that skin care is topical and it has no way of effectively treating facial scarring. Below we talk about the clinically proven SublativeTMtreatment that gets deep into the dermis without harming the epidermis for optimum scar remodeling and new collagen and elastic production.
Cost can be a barrier for some cosmetic treatments. However, the cost of spending years wasting money on ineffective remedies also adds up, not to mention it being a waste of time and a hit to your confidence and self esteem.
If you’re feeling stressed or down about the appearance of your skin and you want real results, then perhaps it’s time to see the skin experts at Eden Laser Clinics about their clinically proven SublativeTM treatment for acne scarring.
The ideal treatment is one that can get deep into the skin to re-model the scar without damaging the skin’s surface and SublativeTM offers this. You can book a complimentary consultation with a skin expert to have your skin analysed and receive a quote for your treatment.
SUBLATIVETM ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
With patients demanding little to no downtime, less aggressive but highly effective technology needed to be developed. SublativeTM treatment for acne scars uses radio frequency, delivered in a cone shape into the dermal layer where it is needed to re-model the scar tissue. Delivering the energy in a cone shape allows for the skin’s surface to remain intact, with maximum energy input into the dermal layer where it is needed to re-model the scar tissue. The skin receives the energy precisely where it is needed to jumpstart the production of new collagen and elastin.
SublativeTM treatment offers the following benefits:
- SublativeTM is the only treatment proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars for all skin types
- Healing is rapid and downtime is minimal
- SublativeTM only impacts up to 5% of the epidermis and most of the effect is deep in the dermis where it is needed, in contrast to fractional ablative laser treatments that can disrupt 10-70% of the skins surface
- Safety and recovery times are better than ablative surfacing
- Skin appears smoother, more elastic with improvement in tone
- Safe for all skin types, even darker skin tones
SublativeTM offers a significantly more comfortable treatment compared to laser resurfacing with no downtime. Your skin will look slightly red (similar to a light sunburn) and will have tiny pinhole like marks where the treatment occurred. The redness calms down within 24 hours and the small marks can be covered up with tinted moisturiser.
The first step is to take action and have a skin analysis. Come in and see the skin specialists at Eden Laser Clinic for a complimentary consultation to have your acne scars analysed and we will give you personalised information and answer any questions you have.
