Suffering from acne is bad enough for anyone to deal with, but it’s the scarring left behind that can often cause the most frustration. Whilst a pimple can last for a week, the scarring left behind can last for weeks, months and in some instances forever – it can dent confidence and make applying makeup and getting ready for a special occasion a time-consuming chore rather than the pleasure it should be.
Acne scars form as a result of a wound or injury rupturing the follicle wall. When lesions are superficial, the skin will repair in due course. However, a scar forms when there is serious damage to the follicle wall. As a reaction, the skin produces new collagen fibres but this doesn’t look the same as before the injury and a scar is formed.
Here at SkinBase, we have been looking at why microdermabrasion is the best way to banish acne scarring.
Why choose SkinBase™ microdermabrasion facial for acne scarring?
With the nickname ‘lunchtime peel’ or ‘parisian peel’, SkinBase microdermabrasion is not only an effective treatment to alleviate acne scarring but to also suit your hectic lifestyle. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, low risk, rapid recovery time skin rejuvenation procedure that fires tiny crystals at the skin to remove the top layers of skin debris and therefore acne scarring. With zero recovery time, a SkinBase™ Facial will not impact your daily schedule.
How often should you have microdermabrasion treatment?
Typically human skin regenerates roughly every 30 days, and microdermabrasion treatments are recommended every 7-10 days to see optimum results. With each of the subsequent SkinBase ™ Facial treatments, your therapist will be able to intensify the process and reach deeper layers of the skin. This will alleviate acne scarring and leave your skin super smooth and flawless.
What other benefits are there to microdermabrasion?
Not only does microdermabrasion reduce the appearance of acne scarring but also has other benefits, such as banishing fine line and wrinkles, reducing stretch marks, evening out skin tone and improving the appearance of dull and tired skin.
