If you have acne scars, speak to Sue Ibrahim, nurse consultant in dermatology at Elan Medical Skin Clinic to find out how she can help.
As if having acne wasn’t bad enough, the scarring left behind can cause as much upset as the acne itself. The medical micro-needling and fractional skin resurfacing treatments at Elan Medical Skin Clinic will significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, allowing you to feel more confident and happy with your complexion.
Acne can lead to scarring when the most severe types of spots – nodules and cysts – burst and damage the overlying skin. Scarring can also occur if you pick or squeeze your spots, so it is important to avoid doing this.
Don’t let skin conditions ruin your life – speak to Elan Medical Skin Clinic in Essex and central London
Skin conditions can be embarrassing at best – and downright painful at worst. If you suffer from acne, melasma, rosacea or psoriasis you will know only too well that no matter how common the complaint may be, they way it affects you is very personal.
Many of our patients have spent many unhappy hours visiting their GP, spent time taking prescribed drugs – some of which have horrible side effects – and spent hundreds of pounds on creams and lotions that haven’t made a scrap of difference.
Most of us love to feel the sun on our skin – and we can tend to go a bit crazy when the sun finally graces our shores. While we may remember to slap on the sunscreen when the sun is blazing, many people don’t realise that it should be worn 365 days a year. Skin cancer is caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, so even on a cloudy day we need to protect our skin from UV radiation.
The use of a daily broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ has been clinically proven to prevent skin cancer and premature ageing of the skin. Anything with a SPF of less than 15 is useless, as these moisturisers will not protect from UVA rays, which can penetrate through 4 inches of glass.
