Acne & General Scar Treatment
Acne scars are most commonly the result of inflamed or infected acne blemishes, in which the affected pores swell and the follicle wall ruptures. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal rapidly, however in more severe cases infected material infiltrates surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions that often result in the formation of scar tissue.
A variety of skin therapies are utilised for the treatment of general, as well as acne–related scarring. Here at the Tasmanian Skin Clinic, these include dermal fillers, punch excision, chemical peels, dermarolling and IPL. For optimal results, a combination of these modalities may be required, depending on the most appropriate and effective treatment for your individual condition.For more severe cases of scarring where primary treatment methods have proven unsuccessful, our doctors can provide surgical scar reduction.
