How to reduce acne scarring


Find out how you can reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

As anyone who’s dealt with acne before knows, the scarring left behind after a breakout is difficult to fully conceal, and it can have a big impact on your confidence. 

While acne scarring can be a very frustrating problem to deal with, the great news is it doesn’t have to be a long-term skin concern. Thanks to treatments such as microneedling, skin can look visibly smoother and more refreshed, leaving you with beautiful results.

How it works

Scarring is a result of the body’s natural response to a skin injury, whether that’s in the form of a pimple or a wound. Specifically, acne scarring happens when the inflammation has gone deeper into the skin - and in the body’s attempt to heal it, scars may end up forming. 

To reduce the appearance of acne scarring it’s important to seek treatment for acne as early as possible, avoid picking at any pimples and follow a dedicated skincare routine to try and treat the problem at its source.

For scars that have already formed, however, your best option could be microneedling. This treatment works by using a micro needle roller, which contains fine needles of varying lengths, to penetrate the skin and trigger the body’s natural wound healing response in a more controlled manner. This results in the production of new collagen tissue, which is stronger and firmer.

A course of treatments helps strengthen the collagen fibres, giving you stronger, smoother and firmer skin with visibly improved texture.

At Skinsmiths, we combine our microneedling treatment with the latest technology Electroporation Needle System, which uses an electrical current to effectively deliver a skin-boosting serum much deeper into the dermis than needling alone. 

If you’re interested in microneedling, or would like more information on how to treat your skin concerns and get healthy, happy skin, we’d recommend booking in for a free consultation with our team of skin experts at your local clinic.
