If you have some acne scars and are considering a treatment like microdermabrasion to ‘remove’ them, then think again.
Instead, visit Facial Care By Sia or read through our hundreds of free articles and find out what treatments will really work on your acne scars.
Microdermabrasion has been around for decades and involves polishing the surface of the skin with an abrasive. This treatment followed the kind of old-school thinking that decades ago decided that our top skin layers were ‘dead’ and needed to be removed.
But modern science has recently proven this is not the case. In fact, these top layers are crucial for our survival and over-exfoliating them results in an acceleration of the aging process, as well as skin irritation and sensitivity.
To effectively treat mid to medium-depth acne scars, simply smoothing the skin with microdermabrasion isn’t going to do it. To improve scars, you must stimulate the skin’s healing response, which releases collagen and elastin, something microdermabrasion does not do.
Instead, try Facial Care By Sia’s new Regen Pen for acne scars. This treatment stimulates collagen and elastin to be released into the dermis, to improve the appearance of scars. We also have a number of methods to treat deeper, pitted scars, so contact us now!
