What causes acne?
Acne forms when your hair follicles become blocked by oil, dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria. This usually results in spots or pimples forming. If you are consistently seeing new spots appearing on your skin, you may have acne.
When you have acne, your sebaceous glands, which sit near the skin’s surface, begin to produce too much sebum. This is an oily substance that helps to lubricate your hair and stop your skin from becoming overly dry. When your sebaceous glands start to over produce sebum, it can mix with dead skin cells to plug or block the hair follicles. This can lead to whiteheads or blackheads forming.
If the harmless bacteria that sits on your skin enters the blocked follicles, it can lead to more severe acne such as pustules, nodules and cysts.
We provide several acne treatments to help unblock pores, remove dead skin cells and destroy acne-causing bacteria. Check out our range of acne treatments.
Why do I have acne scarring?
Not everyone who has spots will develop acne scarring. You start to see acne scars when acne blemishes become inflamed. This causes a breakdown in the wall of the clogged pore, which can lead to raised or depressed areas on the skin. Sometimes the breakdown of blemishes can spill over to the surrounding skin and cause deeper scars.
There are different types of acne scars, which include:
· Keloid scars
· Atrophic scars
· Hypertrophic scars
· Boxcar scars
· Ice pick scars
· Rolling scars
To find the best treatment for your acne scars, you will need to know what type of scars you have. This is where our experts at MySkyn can help. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and look at your medical history. This will enable us to develop a tailored treatment plan that will work for your skin and help achieve great results.
What are the best treatments for acne scars Bradford?
You will require at least one, or a combination of the following treatments:
Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy works by using tiny needles to penetrate the top layer of your skin. By doing this, it triggers collagen production, which helps to act as filler, smoothing the skin around your scars and improving the texture and tone of your skin.
At MySkyn, we use SkinPen, which is a more advanced microneedling technique than traditional dermaroller therapy. It is more precise, works on all skin types and requires minimal downtime.
Chemical peels are a popular acne treatment and scar treatment. They work by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the top layer of your skin. After a few days of your first treatment, skin peels help to reveal new and healthy skin cells, giving you clearer and fresher-looking skin.
Skin peels can also address active acne, as they unclog pores to help kill the acne-causing bacteria. There are different types of chemical peels – light, medium and deep peels. Because of this, there is a peel to suit most skin types.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a more intensive treatment that works by using laser technology to heat below the surface of the skin. This helps to kick-start the skin’s healing process, while also encouraging new collagen to form. By creating new and healthy skin tissue, laser skin resurfacing helps to reduce acne scarring and post-surgical scars.
With this laser treatment, you will improve the way your skin looks and feels. It works best on lighter skin tones. All patients will have a patch test to see if they are suitable for treatment. If you are not suitable, we will discuss the other treatment options that will work best for you.
Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of acne scarring by filling out sunken scars. They work by using a hyaluronic acid gel to help plump and smooth out your skin.
We inject the fillers under the scar to lift the area and improve the appearance of your skin. You can see the results instantly and they usually last at least 12 months. Because they help to fill scars, they are only suitable for atrophic or rolling scars.
