Acne Scarring Treatments Melbourne
Acne is among the most popular skin conditions and affects almost 90% of the global population. When sebaceous (oil-secreting) glands get stimulated by androgens, they produce sebum or oil, which dries and combines with dead skin cells and bacteria above the hair follicles, plugging them and giving rise to more bacteria. This results in an acne breakout.
We at Nitai Medical & Cosmetic Centre Melbourne take immense pride in our state-of-the-art technology and expert medical team. We provide revolutionary acne scar treatment in Melbourne, customized according to the type, condition and the needs of your skin. We are proud to have Dr. Shobhna Singh, one of the leading cosmetic physicians in Australia, who has attained years of experience in acne and scarring treatments Melbourne.
Most severe acne cases, if left untreated, will leave terrible scarring as they damage not only the superficial layer of the skin but also go underneath. The body has its own recovery and repair mechanism, which produces collagen to trigger new tissue formation, but what usually happens, is this formation is not regulated properly, so it ends up either producing too much or too little collagen, thus leading to acne scarring. Scarring in areas like the face, chest, neck, and breasts can be quite unsightly and uncomfortable to look at. It is usually these scars in the visible areas that people wish to get rid of as soon as possible.

The Various Treatment Methods
Fraxel Laser: Fraxel Laser treatments have been considered the gold standard in non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Nitai boasts one of the most advanced Fraxel procedures around. We apply several tiny columns of light to the area being targeted, triggering the healing response. We also offer Fraxel dual treatments, which use two types of lasers in tandem so as to treat both the superficial as well as the deep layers of the skin.
CO2 Laser: This is one of the methods preferred by the experts at Nitai for removal of medium to severe acne scarring. It involves directing focused light beams onto the affected area. We use a Carbon Dioxide Laser or a CO2 laser as it is highly effective in treating persistent acne. The heat from the laser triggers the healing response, causing the increased production of structural proteins for connective tissues over the next few months, leading to lightening and eventual disappearance of scars. You are expected to get a topical anaesthetic administered prior to treatment. CO2 laser procedures involve a fairly hefty downtime. They are suitable for the lighter skin types and generally avoided for darker skin. You must avoid suntans in the weeks leading up to the treatment and also provide tanning history to the doctor treating you beforehand.
Skin Needling: This is also effective for superficial acne scarring and involves mildly puncturing the skin at micro-level using fine needles to trigger production of collagen and tissue proteins.
Skin Peels: These involve the usage of chemicals to remove the skin’s outer layers, and work best for superficial scars. Skin peel is best for effectually addressing skin concerns such as acne scarring, dull, lifeless and rough skin, aging skin, sun damaged skin, congestion, and hyperpigmentation.
Microdermabrasion: Particularly useful for mild scarring, the procedure involves buffing the skin with tiny crystals, which act like sandpaper to remove the rougher, uneven outer layers and diminish fine lines, scars and pigmentation. It is a chemical procedure and has absolutely zero downtime.

This is why you should schedule a consultation with us at the soonest, so we can get you to discuss all your needs, questions and desires with one of our experts.
