Clove essential oil derived from the scented flowers of clove plant is analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic and anesthetic. This oil contains what is called eugenol, an antibacterial component that can kill infection and reduce swelling. Due to its anesthetic properties, it also numbs the pain that you get from your acne. However, there is one consideration regarding clove oil. The substance eugenol that kills bacteria has also been found to be capable of damaging skin cells.

Acne scarring often involves some loss of volume from beneath the surface of the skin, leading to depressed scars and hollow-appearing areas. Fillers can help reverse this change. We use non-permanent fillers because of their excellent safety profile. However, it is typical to achieve some permanent improvement with them. The longer skin is held in a good position, the more likely it is to stay in that position when the temporary filler has dissolved. We also use fillers to hold the skin in a good position while the skin is healing and remodelling itself after subcision and during or after a series of Fraxel laser treatments.
