Question: SCAR ACNE TREATMENT

Good day Dr Allem, I would like to find out if there is any product out there that has been tried and tested to get rid of scar left by acne. I have had bad acne for the past two years after my baby was born, i have managed to get rid of that issue but unfortunately it left me with horrible bumpy acne scars. Please can you advise of any remedies or products that may help me get rid of them.

Answer

Thank you so much for your question.I’m so sorry that you are dealing with this problem. When it comes to acne scarring, our very best results are always achieved when a patient is given the appropriate treatment and placed on a maintenance regime that compliments and enhances the treatment package. Scars are a dermal injury so simply putting on products is not enough to make a significant difference. Depending on the severity of the scarring we may have to combine a few treatment modalities in order to get you the best result. These may include anything from medical needling to chemical resurfacing, or laser resurfacing or rejuvenating treatments with various types of laser and even carboxy therapy. I know taht all sounds a whole lot scarier than what it actually is. Some patients require a combination of two of those treatments, some patients require a lot more, it just really depends on the individual’s skin. Then it is imperative to use the right actives to enhance the treatment results, and typically we would need to include retinols and growth factors into this regime. Are you near enough to any one of our Skin Renewal branches so that I can have a look at your skin? I’d really love to be able to have a look at your problem and be able to help you as best I can.
