Those who struggle with persistent, unsightly acne blemishes know that their confidence can diminish over time. It’s hard to cover up uneven skin on the face, chest, upper back, and shoulders.
Thankfully, there are effective cosmetic treatments available that help minimize the textured, indented look of acne scars. The first step before treating scars, however, is to ensure your breakouts are under control.
Once you’ve had a personalized assessment, your most effective plan will be customized just for you.
The four primary causes of acne include:
- Excess oil production
- Clogged hair follicles
- Overactive hormones
Acne bacteria accumulate in pores, along with dead skin cells and oil, leading to inflammation. The best treatments gently clear away debris, encourage healthy skin cell turnover, and combat unwanted bacteria, all without stripping precious oil from the skin.
Regular exfoliation is essential to clear out pores, but many products are harsh and trigger excess oil production.
Dermalinfusion is next-level exfoliation, using a pen-shaped tool to buff away dead skin and bacteria while gently vacuuming pores. We then infuse a customized, nourishing serum. It’s painless, deeply hydrating, and safe for sensitive skin.
This treatment clears acne-prone skin, but as a bonus, it minimizes wrinkles and signs of sun damage. The dermalinfusion treatment can be done once per month until desired results are achieved, then maintained every 4-6 months.
Acne Laser Treatments
The Aerolase laser system delivers a powerful treatment that’s safe and gentle for all skin types.
Its nano-targeted energy destroys bacteria and reduces sebaceous oil gland production. The heat energy kills bacteria and addresses the deep root causes of acne for lasting skin clarity.
This laser treatment also targets hair follicles to reduce the sebum in pores for preventative care. Laser treatments are fast, comfortable, and don’t require downtime.
Microneedling and PRP
When you’re ready to reveal a smoother, even-toned complexion, consider microneedling and PRP.
Microneedling utilizes tiny needles to penetrate the skin, creating shallow little channels. These are typically just a millimeter or so deep, which stimulates the body’s natural collagen and skin restructuring process. It also allows for temporary openings so high-quality products can penetrate under the surface of the epidermis.
Microneedling is a natural, effective way to smooth out textural issues left by acne scars or enlarged pores. The skin becomes thicker and smoother over time. When you choose to add PRP, your results can be even better.
Platelet Rich Plasma, also called PRP, utilizes platelet growth factors contained in blood plasma for healing and regenerative purposes. A quick, in-office blood draw removes a small amount of blood, then the plasma and platelets are separated with a centrifuge. This PRP solution can be applied as a facial following microneedling treatment. It can also be injected just under the surface to target indented, depressed, and ice pick scars.
