Acne Treatment & Scarring
Acne is a common skin condition that results in the appearance of unsightly spots and unbalanced skin. This condition can cause redness, inflammation, and even make the skin hot to the touch. Acne most commonly occurs on the face, however, many of acne suffer experience it on the back or chest area. The common perception is that acne begins in adolescence driven by hormonal changes and by the early twenties it tends to disappear for most and decrease for the remainder. However, acne is a chronic disease and can affect patients of all ages.
We achieve excellent results for every age group, using a number of techniques tailored to the specific skin requirements of each patient. Dr K will assess and determine the best course of treatment. We offer systemic treatments such as oral antibiotics, topical treatments to laser , microneedling and chemical peels.
As consequence of acne, the patient can be left with different types of scars: pitted scars, atrophic scars (pitted, rolling & box scars) and/or keloids. Depending on the type of scarring that the patient has, we can reduced it with dermapen, PRP, subcision and TCA Cross treatments which stimulates the production of collagen to promote natural skin-healing or light treatments and chemical peels.
