Our skin periodically regenerates to protect itself from harmful irritants, which, in turn, reveals a new and healthier epidermal layer every month. However, that does not necessarily mean all our acne blemishes and scars will magically go away with it. Even those genetically blessed with healthy skin require a proper skincare regime to get rid of any accumulated dead skin cells.
Well, what can one do for healthy, smooth, and glowing skin? Facial treatments! Yes, you’ve heard it right! Besides making for a great pamper session, facial treatments help bring back skin youthfulness and vitality. Regular facial treatments can help cleanse and detoxify your skin, reduce the effects of ageing as well as improve your mental health. They can significantly benefit those who suffer from skin problems such as severe acne and acne scarring. For those starting to venture into the world of skincare and have no idea on where to begin, we recommend these three facial treatments that will effectively tackle your acne scars.
People from all over the world swear by this quick and effective facial treatment. The chemical peel, also known as chemexfoliation or dermapeeling, is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to reveal new and smoother skin. This facial treatment benefits those suffering from acne scars, wrinkles, skin discolouration, and uneven skin texture.
2. PicoSure Laser
This facial treatment is highly recommended for those with acne scarring such as ice-pick and boxcar scars as the PicoSure Laser can penetrate deep into the skin. By utilising a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialised lens, PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology converts laser energy to a gentle pressure that can activate skin cells production. New collagen and elastin are then produced without damaging the skin.
3. Fractional CO2 Laser
Now, this facial treatment may sound intimidating, but rest assured, they are highly common and done by many worldwide. Fractional CO2 Laser is a painless and non-invasive procedure that uses laser mainly made with carbon dioxide to remove dead skin cells on our skin. Besides effectively improving acne scars and uneven skin tone, this treatment is excellent for reversing the signs of ageing!
The proper facial treatment for you highly depends on your skin type and the severity of your scarring. Your skin may not react to a skincare product or facial treatment and result in the same outcome as it did your friend or sister.
