Anyone with acne has heard time and time again how terrible it is to pick at your acne lesions. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and try and squeeze your pimple, but just try and imagine the damage you will do. One of the main reasons you do not want to squeeze your zits, is that they may cause scarring. It’s much harder to get rid of the scar than it is to control your temptation of picking or squeezing. But things happen and those dreaded acne scars can occur.
Here, Clear Clinic’s top treatments for acne scars:
F.A.S.T. Laser Technique
Dr. Schweiger invented the F.A.S.T. (Focal Acne Scar Treatment) technique and it’s fast becoming the quickest, most effective way to treat acne scars. The procedure uses Fractional CO2 Laser to treat only the area on the face with acne scarring. Since only part of the face is being treated, higher energy levels are used and thus produces quicker results with a speedier healing time.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) successfully treats the dark spots often left over from active acne lesions. The broad spectrum light in these “photofacials” targets and reduces the redness left behind from acne.
Everyone’s skin can benefit from an in-office microdermabrasion treatment. But most of all, those with acne scars will see marked improvement. The microdermabrasion machine gently and painlessly sloughs off the top layer of skin with a suction movement. It’s the ultimate lunchtime procedure, as it has no down time and skin looks immediately better.
