Answer

Thanks so much for your enquiry. There is a quite a bit we can do for acne scarring, but it is a process that you need to follow as acne scarring is quite deep in the skin. The best thing for you to do is to come into one of our clinics so that one of the doctors or I can have a look at your skin. A treatment package for acne scarring would normally include a combination of chemical peels, and laser and medical rolling (all dependant on how severe the scarring is). There are various options and combinations we could consider to help you. We also have to treat it differently if you still have active lesions on your skin… so the real challenge is to tailor make the package to suit you, and of course we have to take your budget into consideration… some people take more treatments over a longer period of time as we have to do things slowly and step by step to accommodate affordability, other people don’t have budget issues so we can do a lot of things together and more quickly… so it really is finding the recipe that works best for you. My advice is that you come in to Skin Renewal for a consult and lets do the best we can do for you.

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)

Question

Hi Dr Maureen, I have oily skin and in my 30s. I’m looking for a skincare treatment that will assist with clearing my skin and keep the oiliness at bay as well as serve as an anti aging. It doesn’t have to be in the same jar. I’m currently using Mineraline Time-it products for anti-aging, but it’s not doing anything for the oilyness and the random breakouts. Please could you advice.
