Acne Scars Men

Acne Scars

Acne Scarring is an extremely common adolescent problem which very often leaves its marks, persisting well into adulthood in the form of deep pits. The face is affected most commonly but often these scars are seen on  the chest and back too. Luckily today, there are plenty of ways of treating acne scars.

For people suffering from active acne, we strongly recommend the SkinMed range and the Enerpeel. This  product system is effective in reducing active acne and in treating acne scars while also tackling other common skin problems. Enerpeel employs a combination of Salicylic Acid to penetrate to the deepest layer of the skin to correct the problem from its roots.

For those people who are no longer suffering from active acne, but would like to improve the appearance of the  resulting scars,  Dermapen™ Therapy provides advanced micro-medical skin needling that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. This leads to a smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin. Usually three to five therapy sessions are required.

The Dermapen™ medical device is a novel treatment that has been proven to be effective in the treatment of the following problems:

  • Acne scars
  • Aged and sun-damaged skin
  • Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Pale and atrophic scars

The Dermapen™ is a single-use medical device available only from medically trained practitioners. This treatment  employs advanced medical micro-needling, a procedure which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, tighter, healthier and clear younger-looking skin.

At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are completely focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident about your appearance.


The benefits of Derma Roller treatments

Skin Needling is a safe and precise procedure. The Dermapen™ Therapy works by puncturing the outermost layers of your skin to create tiny pin prick injuries. These microscopic wounds will stimulate new collagen deposition. Although the wounds close within an hour, visible signs of skin rejuvenation are seen after just six to eight weeks following the procedure and can continue for up to a year after the treatment.

By having a number of consecutive Dermapen™ Therapy sessions, new collagen and elastin are produced  progressively until indented scars and deep lines are filled. Skin Needling does not require the removal of healthy epidermis which means that it offers a rapid healing time and is relatively painless. The procedure produces collagen layers on a scale similar to laser therapies.


Types of  Dermapen™ treatments

Although there are several types of skin needing or Dermaroller treatments available, we primarily use Dermapen™ therapy at Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic.

After an initial consultation with your practitioner, if it is agreed that you will benefit from the Genuine  Dermapen™ Therapy, local anaesthetic is applied to the affected area in order to numb it; the anaesthetic is then allowed to work over the course of 30 minutes. The actual  Dermapen™ procedure takes 20-30 minutes and is virtually painless.

Following the treatment, a soothing cream is applied and should continue to be applied at home for the next couple of days. For the first 24 hours post-procedure, the affected area will look red and may be slightly swollen (similar to the appearance of mild sunburn). This is the normal expected result and is not painful.

Although significant results are often seen following the first treatment, your practitioner will generally recommend between three and five treatments for optimum and long-lasting effects.

This treatment is contra-indicated in the presence of active acne and if there is a tendency to form hypertrophic or keloid scars.
