How do I treat it?
We treat acne scarring by stimulating the same processes that cause the scarring in the first place, but in a much more controlled way. The treatments we use don’t anger the skin or cause it to react in a panicked fashion, but rather we enact a moderate stimulation of skin cells and collagen.
For example, microneedling is extremely effective at treating acne scars. This works best when the skin is not in immediate trauma. We use tiny needles to create tiny pinpricks in the skin, penetrating it to kick-start skin cell renewal. By lightly damaging the top layer of skin we force the body into its shedding cycle, sloughing away the damaged cells to make way for the fresh ones it is creating. These fresh cells essentially ‘push’ the scarring out from the inside, bringing with them a smoother complexion and fresh glow.
Our treatment of microdermabrasion works in a similar fashion to our microneedling, too. This device uses a crystal exfoliant head to intensely resurface the skin, removing the outer dead skin cells. This prompts positive skin cell turnover and starts the process of smoothing acne scarring.
Acne scarring doesn’t have to be permanent with Omniya and our skin specialists in Knightsbridge. We even offer free consultations, so you can tackle acne scarring with the treatment that is best for you. Enquire online today or call 020 7584 4777 to book your first appointment.
