Acne scars can be distressing and stigmatising, especially when on the face. Acne scars occur when pustules turn into nodules and cysts. Scarring is the result of skin damage during the healing of active acne. This process produces two typical scar types: atrophic and hypertophic scars depending on wheather there is a gain or loss of collagen in the healing process. The damage caused initially by inflammation of a blocked sebaceous gland causes blanching and vasoconstriction (narrowing of the blood vessels).
At Body Silk we offer Dermal Roller that employs advanced medical micro-needling. It is a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, healthier, clearer younger-looking skin with acned scars disappearing.
