Face 2014 with Confidence
When patients first attend the Acne Clinic at Cosmetic Doctor in Dublin, many of them have lived with acne breakouts for so long that they can’t imagine a life without the annoying, unsightly blemishes.
They certainly can’t envisage skin that is clear, and get discouraged when they see the legacy of pitting and scarring where acne has damaged the surface of their skin with repeated breakouts.
Once the acne itself has been treated successfully, and the breakouts are under control, there is no reason to have to live with pock-marked, damaged skin.
Wide Range of Treatments for Acne Scarring
One of the advantages of attending Cosmetic Doctor is the range of superb equipment designed to improve the skin after acne, and the team at the clinic will be able to treat your skin to help minimise the appearance of acne scars.
Treating the skin for scarring whilst ensuring any further breakouts are controlled will restore skin to a smoother, more even texture.
Collagen Induction and Medical Microneedling
One of the approaches at Cosmetic Doctor is medical microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy. It can greatly improve acne scarring, reduce pore size, refines skin texture and also reduces fine lines.
After application of a topical anaesthetic applied to the surface of the skin, either a sterile roller or the Dermapen is used to create thousands of tiny microscopic channels deep into the dermis.
While on the surface these punctures close immediately, your skin is tricked into thinking there are thousands of tiny wounds to repair.
Each one of the punctures enters into micro-wound-healing mode, which stimulates production of collagen, elastin and other beneficial skin components.
Added Anti-Ageing Benefits
The skin ultimately remodels itself and becomes plumper, smoother and more youthful. It leaves the skin’s surface intact, working at the dermis level to encourage the skin to heal itself.
Patients also benefit from the added bonus of the anti-ageing effect as skin is left beautifully smooth and dewy.
Micro-needling and collagen induction is just one of the methods of helping to eliminate acne scarring; Cosmetic Doctor also provide laser treatments, glycolic peels, and a variety of other effective treatments tailored to your skin.
