Acne is a long-term skin disease which occurs when hair follicles get clogged with the dead skin cells and oil. This condition is very common during the puberty period but can occur at any age due to male hormones. Acne is not a dangerous disease but can greatly demean one’s self-confidence and can leave scars that will last forever. The acne scars usually occur due to the depressions caused by the loss of tissue. Raised scars can also be formed as a result of acne due to extra tissue. Acne also leaves colored spots on the skin, the spot left can be red, pink, purple, tan or dark. The color of spots will depend upon the color of your skin. The spots are not permanent and will fade with the passage of time. However, you can get rid of all these skin conditions with the help of acne treatments.
Many people who are looking to get clinical acne treatments for their pimples do not know about the price of these treatment. Therefore, in today’s article we will discuss the cost of acne treatments in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Cost of Acne Treatment
Proper treatments can clear your face from acne and can help you in minimizing the scars. Some acne treatments are more effective as compared to the other. The cost of your acne treatment depends upon the type of procedure that you are choosing for your acne problem.
The chemical peels are effective in treating acne. When the chemical peel is applied to the face, it minimizes the effects of acne on the skin. They also remove the out layer of skin which reveals the new skin that is smoother and acne free. The effect of the chemical peel depends upon its strength. Stronger peel penetrates deeper into the skin and the cost of the procedure will depend upon the type of peel you use.
This type of treatment is very effective when it comes to acne scar treatment. In this type of treatment, the scar is frozen which will fall off eventually with the passage of time. Cryotherapy is sometimes used in combination with intralesional injections. The possible side-effect of this procedure is that it can make the treated area lighter as compared to the nearby skin.
The cost of this technique will depend upon the treated area.
Autologous Fat Transfer
This type of treatment uses liposuction to remove excess fat from one part of the body. The fat is then processed and injected into another part of the body. In this procedure, fat is placed under the depressed scars to raise them. The procedure is also used to raise the deep scars caused by the severe form of acne called nodulocystic acne. Autologous fat transfer is not a permanent solution because the fat will be absorbed into the skin with the passage of time.
The cost of this procedure will depend upon the number of areas that need treatment.
Laser Resurfacing and other light therapies
In this type of treatment, high energy light is used to burn the skin that has been damaged by the acne. A pulse dye laser might be used to treat the raised acne scars. People with lighter skin tone can use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) to get a more clear skin. IPL uses intense light instead of the laser. Each session of IPL takes less time compared to laser. Both IPL and Laser give the same results. However, more sessions of IPL are needed to get the same result as the laser.
The cost of IPL is also less but as more sessions are required for the treatment, the cost of IPL adds up over time and comes closer to the laser.
This type of treatment is required to reduce all the small scars including acne scars. In this procedure, the outer layer of skin is removed with the help of an electrical machine that scrapes the outer surface of the skin. The new skin formed is smoother and fresh as compared to the older skin. The downtime of this procedure is high and you will be required to stay at home for 5 to 7 days. Dermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure.
The cost of this procedure will depend upon the area of skin being treated.
In this type of procedure, the skin is surgically separated from scar tissue with the help of a probe. Due to this removal, the scar is raised. With the passage of time the surface of these depressed scars flattens. This procedure is also known as Subcision.
The procedure is effective for depressed acne scars and the cost of the procedure will depend upon the size of the area being treated through this procedure.
Dermal fillers are injections that are injected into the skin to replace the natural collagen that has been lost due to acne. Dermal fillers can be effectively used on depressed scars to fill them up. However, their effect is temporary.
The cost of this treatment will depend upon the number of fillers required to get the desired result.
