What is Acne?

It is important to understand what acne is, before choosing acne treatments. Acne is caused when little holes in the skin, known as hair follicles, become congested. Sebaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of the skin. These glands are attached to hair follicles. Hair follicles are small holes in your skin that an individual hair grows out of. Sebaceous glands lubricate the hair and the skin to stop it drying out. The oily substance the sebaceous glands produce is called sebum. If too much sebum is produced it can mix with the dead skin cells and create plugs in the follicles. If the plugged follicle is close to the surface it will create what is known as a whitehead. When the follicle is open to the skin it forms what is known as a blackhead. This bacteria is usually harmless but it acne it can become infected causing papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.

Acne Treatments in Sutton Coldfield

The Genuine dermaroller from AesthetiCare.

Genuine Dermaroller Therapy provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself by stimulating the wound healing process, which along with the topical application of the required vitamins, is a safe natural way of renewing the skin and creating brighter healthier, younger looking skin. The rolling increases the overall health of the skin including skin tightening, reduction of UV damage, permanent diffused redness, uneven skin tone ,pore size and helps to prevent and reverse fine lines and wrinkles. It accomplishes these results through allowing greater absorption of required cell nutrients and release of growth factors to optimize cell function. The skin will look clearer, brighter and more youthful. The face, neck, décolleté (cleavage) are the most popular areas treated but any area of the body can benefit from dermal rolling if the skin is compromised.

Acne Scar Treatment

The mechanical breakdown of the scars allows for new natural wound healing cascade which produces the specific growth factors required for remodelling of the scar tissue. The acne treatments required will depend on the severity of scarring. Pitted scarring can be treated individually with the “dermastamp” prior to dermal rolling to help improve results.

Stretch Marks Treatment

Stretch marks are caused by prolonged skin distension due to pregnancy or weight gain. They can be greatly improved with Dermal rolling. A one off treatment can give good results for rejuvenation, however acne scars and stretch marks will require a minimum of three treatments. The results of the treatment will be fully apparent after 6 weeks and the appearance of the skin will continue to improve over a long period.
