Discoloration on the skin usually takes 3-6 months for the marks to disappear; however, if this discoloration is a scar, you may have permanent skin damage that needs treatment in order to disappear. An acne scar changes the texture of the skin. If acne has left indentations, or raised spots, the damage has occurred at a deeper level in the skin.
The appearance of moderate to severe acne scars can benefit from the following procedures:
A microdermabrasion procedure applies tiny rough particles from a special machine to remove the uppermost layer of skin.
- Chemical Peels:
A chemical peel is a skin treatment that removes the outer layer of old skin by using a special chemical solution. The new skin that replaces the old skin is usually smoother and less scarred.
The microneedling procedure is a skin treatment that uses small needles to create controlled microinjury to the skin. This helps to stimulate the body’s own collagen production and smooth acne scarring.
- Vivace RF Microneedling:
This radio frequency microneedling treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with the additional benefit of radio frequency technology for outstanding results in fighting acne scars.
This photofacial treatment uses an intense but gentle beam of light that treats the acne without damaging surrounding tissue. It generally works best when combined with other acne treatments.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing:
This treatment uses a laser to remove the scarred upper layers of skin and encourage new healthy collagen to grow in its place.
Here at Ellemes Medical Spa, we not only educate our patients on what is right for them based on their skin type, but also give them suitable options depending upon their skin condition.
