Dermaroller Treatments for Acne/Acne Scarring (Face)

Active acne can be a rather debilitating skin condition to live with, one that affects the majority of the population in one way or another throughout our lives. In more serious instances, it can have a serious impact on the mental health of the sufferer due to the unsightly outward appearance of the condition, which can be rather unsightly to say the least. Inflammatory acne can cause various types of spots to occur, not to mention eventual acne scarring in severe spot types; nodules and cysts, for example, burst and cause long-term damage to the surrounding skin.

Treating and managing a skin condition such as this can be very difficult, with so many products and treatments on the market. Finding a solution that really works for you can seem impossible at times, not to mention time-consuming and costly. Once the damage is done and the scarring forms, seeking expert help and advice is recommended. At North West Aesthetics, we offer Dermaroller treatment to improve the appearance of both active acne and acne scarring.
