Breakouts come and go but the scars they leave behind can last for years. Acne scars are the remains of inflamed pimples and these blemishes occur when the pore becomes engorged with a “mixture” of excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. This mixture stresses the inside of the pore and can cause a break in the follicle wall. When this happens, it damages healthy tissue and can leave a scar.
There are different types of scars: Ice Pick Scars are small depressions in the skin, Boxcar Scars tend to be larger with sharper edges and hyperpigmentation scars (or darkening of the skin) are common types of acne scars. To repair the damage, the skin needs to form new collagen and remodel the skin.
Our acne treatment options are customized to get you the skin you’ve always wanted.
Helping your body create new collagen with Pico Laser Treatments and using Elta and SkinCeuticals Skin Products will accelerate the acne scar healing process tremendously. Many people are familiar with microneedling as a method to remodel the skin. Think of the Pico Laser as the “Fast Track” to healing scars. What microneedling does in 12 months, the Pico laser does in 2-3 Months. What is even better, there is no downtime or bleeding associated with the Pico Laser.
Other treatment options include:
Results are based on the acne treatment you select – as well as how your skin responds to treatment – but most clients can expect:
Most clients have no downtime. You can expect your face to be red after the treatment but this fades within 3-4 hours. Most clients apply Elta MD sunscreen and makeup prior to leaving the spa. It is important that you protect your skin by wearing sunscreen & keeping it out of the sun. We recommend that you wear sunscreen like Elta MD every day – your sunscreen must block UVA and UVB rays. If you have any questions, please call the spa. You can request another copy of post-care instructions at any time.
