Fighting acne is no longer a losing battle

Acne scarring

Scars from acne can seem like double punishment — first you had to deal with the spots, now you have marks as a reminder.

Acne scars are usually caused by inflammation at a cellular level that causes darkened or lightened pigmented areas, disruption of collagen fibres and an overproduction of scar tissue. If this inflammation alters the collagen structure, a pock mark or other unsightly scar may develop.

At The Hadleigh Clinic we offer the latest approaches to treat the scarring left by acne. PIXEL Laser Skin Resurfacing, Dermaroller and the Obagi NU-DERM System for hyperpigmentation and residual acne flare ups.

PIXEL is an FDA approved fractional laser which provides textural and skin improvement for patients with acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, as well as scarring on other parts of the body. “Fractional Laser Resurfacing” creates thousands of tiny micro-perforations in the skin similar to the size of pores. The skin around each of the perforations remain intact and rapidly heals from within and from around the edges of these tiny holes to create “new skin”. The treatment is a safe and effective with minimal downtime.
