Red spots, deep pits, brown residual spots. Your skin seems restless, while the inflammation of acne has already disappeared. You can still see damage to the skin months to years later. You don't feel comfortable with it or you may feel that people are watching it. Residual spots and scars from acne are common skin questions at Skin Project. We understand that a skin condition has a lot of impact on your daily life. Ideally, you want to remove the acne scars, so that you literally feel better in your skin. With skin therapeutic laser treatments, medical peels, microneedling and unique combination therapies, we have developed a method that makes the residual spots and acne scars much less noticeable.
Unfortunately, we cannot completely remove scars. But because we make the skin more even with intensive treatments and remove the depth from the scars, the light falls on your skin differently and the scars are much less noticeable. The result is that we make your skin softer and healthier, making your complexion calmer and more even. This will give you more confidence. Do you suffer from acne? Then don't keep walking around with it and prevent scars. Prevention is better than cure. Our acne scar treatments aim to get the formation of blackheads and pimples under control and to repair the skin damage caused by acne such as a coarse skin structure, spots, redness and scars as much as possible. The treatment that is used against acne scars is a combination with a professional medical peeling from Dermaceutic, an IPL or SkinPen treatment. A personal treatment plan is always drawn up.
The treatment plan is always twofold. In addition to the medical peels from Dermaceutic that we perform in practice, it is also essential that you get started with the recommended exfoliating products from Dermaceutic for at home (at least 2 to 4 weeks before the first treatment). By using the exfoliating products at home, the dead skin cells are removed and the skin thins. As a result, the skin becomes more permeable and the peeling reaches the deeper layers of the skin better, so that the most optimal result is achieved faster and the treatment is more effective. The skin will also recover faster after a treatment and the results of the treatment will be maintained longer, so that maintenance treatments are required less often.
Chemical peels are liquids that consist of natural acids. Working at Skin Project with medical peels based on Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid or Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA).
These ingredients provide a deep cleansing of the pores and tackle the acne bacteria (p.acnes) and inhibit sebum production. The active ingredients in a peel also stimulate and accelerate cell renewal of the skin, preventing new blockages, impurities and inflammation. The depth into which the peeling penetrates depends on the type of ingredients we use. We determine this together by tailoring it to your individual wishes. There is a suitable peeling for every skin
With our IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) treatment of the InMode system, we tackle acne from the inside and from the source: the sebaceous glands. During the IPL treatment, the light destroys the bacteria that cause acne. The inflamed sebaceous glands also shrink due to this treatment, which reduces the overproduction of sebum. This makes the IPL treatment a very effective treatment for treating inflammation and redness. The treatment is suitable for the face, but also for pimples on the back and chest.
The Inmode is CE and FDA certified, which ensures the safety of the equipment.
The medical SkinPen is our all-rounder. Renew the skin in depth, without causing superficial damage and with minimal downtime. This is possible with the SkinPen. The SkinPen is the world's first FDA-approved medical micro-needling system. It is also the only system FDA approved for the safe and effective treatment of stretch marks. With medical micro-needling, tiny micro-channels are made in the skin by means of very small, sterile needles that vibrate on the skin. During the treatment, the natural recovery process is activated deep in the skin, which creates new collagen (type 3) and elastin. The SkinPen is more powerful, more precise and safer than ever before! In contrast to many other micro-needling systems, the needle depth can be set on the needle itself and therefore never goes deeper or more superficially into the skin than set. In addition, the SkinPen is the only micro-needling system with which proven pure micro-channels are created. This is both unique and the safety of the treatment is guaranteed. The final result is visible after about 12 to 16 weeks.
For an optimal result, we often combine several skin-improving techniques in one treatment. E.g. an IPL treatment in combination with with a chemical peel. These treatments are intended to improve the redness, structure and flexibility of the skin, by activating cell renewal and collagen production in the skin. The effect and results have been extensively researched and scientifically proven.
What effect can you expect?
You will notice that thanks to the treatments and the use of the right skin products, the acne scars will be reduced. Multiple treatments are needed to reduce acne scars on the face, depending on your skin condition we usually start with 3 to 5 acne/scar treatments. A treatment lasts on average 45 to 60 minutes. After each treatment, we evaluate how things are going and decide whether we need to adjust the treatment plan.
Important to know
After the treatment, the skin may look red. The skin may also slightly flake or peel. It is important not to scratch the skin. If desired, we can also advise you on the right post-treatment creams and foundation, which ensure that the recovery of damaged skin is accelerated.
Reimbursement health insurance
Treatment for acne scars on the face can possibly be reimbursed from the additional health insurance. The amount of your reimbursement depends on your insurance. In the case of reimbursements from the supplementary insurance, no claim is made on your deductible. Skin Project is recognized by all health insurers.
About Acne Scars
Yes, acne is a medical indication for which reimbursement is possible from the supplementary insurance. Skin Project is recognized by all health insurers.
Your skin may be red or swollen after the acne scar treatment. That is why we always apply sun protection with possibly a camouflage color. So you can continue with your daily activities. With deeper acne scar treatments, your skin may have a recovery time in the week after the treatment (flaking, redness, micro scabs and swelling). We always discuss this with you before the treatment, so that you can take this into account.
The aim of residual acne treatment is initially to stabilize the skin and to improve the skin barrier. When this has been achieved with home products or a medical peeling, we will actively treat the acne scars. This reduces the residual spots and fades scars and coarse pores.
You will be treated by experienced BIG-registered hbo-trained skin therapists. You can achieve healthy skin with the right knowledge, scientifically substantiated methods and (medical) equipment, proven medical techniques and the right home advice. That is why we only have the very best in house for both medical and cosmetic skin care. The quality of the treatment is paramount to make you healthier, more beautiful and above all happier. You are always central to our clinic and you are not a number.
