What is Acne Surgery?
Acne surgery is a procedure performed by a Master Aesthetician to remove acne lesions manually. This type of surgery is typically performed on individuals who have acne that has not responded to other treatments, such as topical or oral medications.
What can I Expect?
The procedure involves using a sterile instrument, such as a needle, to gently extract the contents of the acne lesion, including oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Acne surgery is performed as a quick outpatient procedure, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, some redness and swelling may occur at the site of the extractions, and patients may be advised to avoid certain activities or use specific skincare products for a period of time following the procedure. It is important to note that acne surgery is not a permanent solution for acne, and patients may require ongoing treatment to manage their condition.
What Does it Treat?
Acne surgery can be effective in reducing the severity of acne and preventing scarring. The procedure can also help to speed up the healing process of active acne lesions.
