ACNE TREATMENT FAQS
WHAT DO CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS FOR ACNE INVOLVE?
Vysana uses a glycolic skin peel, which tackles the deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s first layer is the epidermis, which mainly comprises dead skin cells. This is the layer patients can see. The next layer is the dermis. When damaged, the dermis will produce scars. Also, it is where the follicles that allow acne vulgaris spots to arise live.
A glycolic skin peel is like a mask that rests on the skin and exfoliates through to the dermis. In doing so, it reduces scarring and can make the red pigmentation that accompanies acne look less noticeable. Most patients require a package of treatments to see the full benefits. At Vysana, patients can choose between purchasing a single peel, or a package that saves money.
ARE CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS FOR ACNE SAFE?
Using a chemical skin peel for acne is safe for most patients. Adverse reactions are rare, but the Rutland Aesthetics medical team will provide advice on looking out for them anyway.
Following a chemical skin peel for acne, some patients may experience temporary side effects. They include:
- Skin peeling
It is also vital for patients to recognise that the post-treatment period is a sensitive time for their skin. Therefore, when using chemical skin peels for acne, they should stay away from UV light and avoid applying makeup.
In some instances, using a glycolic skin peel for acne is not appropriate. For example, in those who have ongoing dermatological conditions and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
IS DERMA NEEDLING FOR ACNE SAFE?
When used by a trained professional, Derma needling for acne is safe. However, in some instances, it can cause bacteria to spread across the skin, which makes acne worse. As such, patients considering the use of dermal needling for acne should seek advice from a medical professional who understands the causes of acne, how the skin works, and whether their patient will benefit from dermal needling.
ARE DERMA FILLERS FOR ACNE SCARRING SAFE?
In most cases, it is safe to use dermal fillers for acne scarring. However, as this is an acne treatment that involves injecting a medicine into the body, certain patients are not eligible. Such patients may include:
- Pregnant and breastfeeding women
- Those with certain underlying medical conditions
- Anybody who has encountered an adverse reaction to dermal fillers before
- Individuals taking certain medications
