A scarred face can be a huge deterrent to your confidence. Accidents, surgeries and acne can leave permanent scars on the skin. Shari’s Skin & Body Esthetics offers acne scarring treatments in Calgary. Our treatments can be that huge boost of confidence you were seeking all along. Your skin reacts to trauma by building scars and this tissue is not the same as your normal healthy skin. This skin could appear discoloured, colourless, raised and/or indented.
Earlier, topical treatments and surgery were the main treatments for scarring. However, today with advancement of technology, we are able to revise scar tissue using laser technology. The technology provides resurfacing to even out the scar texture, irregularities and discolouration on the skin. At our beauty clinic, we use top-quality products for safe and effective acne removal and treatment.
How Do People Get Acne?
Individuals get acne as their body begins to develop and mature. Acne, commonly known as pimples, is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles plug with oil and dead skin cells. If the openings are large, the clogs take the form of blackheads and if the openings stay small, the clogs take the form of whiteheads. Triggers and causes for acne include stress, hormonal fluctuations, inappropriate skin care products or incorrect usage of skin care products.
Pimples often appear on the forehead, face, chest, upper back and shoulders of the affected person. At our clinic, we offer many effective treatments for acne that reduce both the number of pimples you get and your chance of scarring. We are dedicated to helping patients struggling with acne and to restore health and balance to their skin. Contact us today if you’re concerned about your acne and want to book an appointment.

What is Melasma?
Melasma is a commonly found skin problem which causes brown to grey-brown patches on the face. Generally, it occurs on cheeks, bridge of one’s nose, forehead, chin, and above one’s upper lip. Sometimes it can affect other parts of the body that gets exposed to the sun, such as forearms and neck.
Melasma is usually treated from protecting the skin from getting exposed to the sun. One needs to reapply sunscreen for every two hours to protect themselves from melasma. As per dermatologists, an individual needs to wear a hat that completely protects their face from the sun rays.
