Acne is a skin condition that can affect men and women from puberty through adulthood. Greasy secretions start from the skins oil glands, which block the hair follicles leading to inflamed, red skin. Some contributing factors may include; stress, poor diet and hormonal changes.


The exact cause of acne can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint, which means in some cases multiple treatments or a combination of treatments are required to achieve the best results. Acne scar treatment in Melbourne has been proved to be useful to address this problem for many.

There are several self-help treatments that may increase the chances of improvements in your skin when paired with one of our tailored treatment plans, these include;

  • Cleansing – use cleansers suited to your skins needs but do not over wash your face as this can lead to irritations such as dryness and may make your acne worse.
  • Makeup – Try and use natural, chemical and oil-free where possible and always remove makeup before you go to bed. Regularly wash your make up brushes.
  • Don’t squeeze – this can lead to scaring and spread bacteria which will only make the breakouts worse.
  • Diet – research suggests diet can affect your skin. Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise can reduce inflammations.

At Appearance Clinic Australia, our goal is to achieve the best possible result with acne scar treatment in Melbourne for all our clients. In most cases, this entails tailoring a treatment plan that will work best for each individual. Once our specialists have assessed your individual needs, an acne management plan can be prescribed, often containing one or a combination of the following, high-quality treatments;

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acid Peel (AHA) – These peels cleanse your face and remove dead and damaged skin. The AHA peel has an antibacterial effect and stimulates cell regeneration, assisting your skin to repair and rejuvenate.
  • Laser Genesis – is used to reduce pore size. Minimising pore size helps to reduce congestion that leads to bacteria and hence breakouts.
  • Retinoids – skincare helps to reduce sebum production. Sebum is the oily substance that your skin produces to protect and moisture itself. Breakouts are the result of clogged pores due to excess sebum.
  • Topical Skin Treatments – Topical acne scar treatment in Melbourne will be tailored to your individual skin requirements and can be very effective in treating mild acne. For moderate to severe acne, these products can be used in conjunction with other treatments in order to achieve the best results possible.
