At Dr Saras &Co we have one of the most effective anti-acne treatments available in Sydney; proven to reduce moderate to severe acne for all skin types, including darker skin.
The effects of acne start with oily secretions from oil glands in the skin, this results in the plugging of the tiny openings of the hair follicles. If the openings are small, whiteheads can form, if the openings are large it can often result in blackheads. Both whiteheads and blackheads can lead to a red and inflamed acne breakout.
Some people or skin types are more susceptible to acne scarring (a result of previous acne breakouts causing damage to the surrounding tissue). If our body does not produce enough collagen, a depression in the skin forms, and if too much collagen is produced than the result is a raised scar. At Dr Saras & Co in order to successfully treat acne, we believe in targeting acne holistically from all angles of causes.
In the case of extreme thickness and/or scarring, we will resurface skin using laser technology to deeply and gently refine open pores, reduce acne scarring and smooth congested “lumpy” skin. This procedure involves removing the outer layer of the skin and stimulating collagen production for a clear and youthful complexion. This will improve the appearance of the skin and specific acne scarring.
A topical anaesthetic is normally required that will help to numb the skin and make sure that the procedure is not painful or uncomfortable for the patient. The laser works to remove the outer layer of your damaged skin, as well as heating the dermis.
This process can take from between 30 minutes to one hour to complete, but this will depend on the severity of the scarring to the skin. There is some downtime associated with using laser technology. Patients may experience redness to the skin and slight swelling.
Every person will require a different treatment plan when it comes to acne. The best way to have your acne accessed is to book a consultation at Dr Saras & Co. During your consultation, we will give you personalised information based on your skin type and acne. Our anti-acne treatment options are available in our clinics located in Annandale, Double Bay and Miranda.
