Laser treatment for acne and acne scarring

February 24,2012 | Posted by: cmc-dashboard

Becoming a teenager brings a world of conflicting emotions, sometimes you can feel secure and capable of conquering anything, and sometimes you see yourself immobilised by insecurity and social awkwardness. And to make matters worse those are the years you start experiencing changes such as acne in different parts of your body. Even though acne is a common skin condition that usually starts during adolescence and frequently continues into adulthood, it can affect peoples’ self-confidence. Here at The Cosmetic Medicine Centre we provide laser treatment Brisbane for acne and acne scarring.

Depending on our patient’s specific condition, we can provide as well as appropriate skin care and/or prescription topical and oral medications, fairly non-invasive treatments for mild cases such as skin peels, or stronger treatments such as medical Micro-dermabrasion and Matrix Radiofrequency for developed acne problems and scarring.

Micro-dermabrasion is a procedure used to resurface and smooth the skin. Unlike the old style dermabrasion, micro-dermabrasion uses a handpiece with embedded diamond chips and an adjustable vacuum with the purpose of deep cleaning and exfoliating the skin.
The procedure can assist in the treatment of acne and mild acne scarring, clogged, dry or oily skin, blackheads and a few other skin conditions.

Another treatment used at The Cosmetic Medicine Centre to reduce the appearance of acne scarring is Matrix Radiofrequency. This treatment consists of radiofrequency energy delivered in tiny spots in a matrix pattern deep into the skin. This increases the levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells.

Usually three or more treatments are required to achieve best results. To minimise discomfort, a topical local anaesthetic is applied to the area. For the first few days after the procedure swelling will be evident, particularly if the area treated is around the eyes.
There is no need to feel self-conscious about your skin, at The Cosmetic Medicine Centre we utilise up-to-date techniques and procedures and our fully trained and qualified doctors and nurses will make sure you receive the most suitable laser treatment Brisbane.
