We may have left our acne behind in puberty, but unfortunately, many of us carry our acne scars with us into adulthood. Like acne did in high school, acne scars can make many of us feel insecure about our skin. And unfortunately, acne scars actually become more prominent as we age and start losing collagen, which aids in skin elasticity and cell regeneration.
But what if there were a way to get rid of deep acne scars for good? To stop disguising them with layers of foundation and start feeling confident about your skin again?
There is – several in fact. Spa MD offers a number of different treatments that help get rid of and improve the appearance of deep acne scars.
Microdermabrasion for Deep Acne Scars
Many people have heard of microdermabrasion, but not many people actually know what it is. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses very fine crystals to essentially buff and polish your skin. Think of it as extreme exfoliation. By using a steady stream of crystals, we will actually remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, healthy skin beneath.
Microdermabrasion is a painless, noninvasive procedure that we can perform right here at Spa MD. The procedure lasts only an hour and the results are instantaneous. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types, and is a perfect treatment for people who would prefer to avoid harsher techniques. Microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of deep acne scars, but we also use it to treat sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
If you’re interested in microdermabrasion, schedule a consultation for one of our expert clinicians to assess your needs!
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Acne Scars
The effects of laser skin resurfacing can be dramatic, restoring aging skin to its youthful vibrancy. During the procedure, our expert clinicians will use the laser to dissolve the molecular bonds of damaged skin cells layer-by-layer until smooth, clear, more youthful-looking skin shines through.
Laser skin resurfacing is an anti-aging miracle because it can be used to treat multiple skin imperfections at once. Skin resurfacing also replaces the need for using multiple different treatments or technologies on a single area. Laser skin resurfacing indiscriminately treats the surface of your skin, targeting acne scars, brown spots, sun damage, redness, and deep lines at once. After your laser skin resurfacing treatment, you’ll be amazed at how smooth your skin looks and how even your skin tone and pigmentation are. Your skin will glow like it used to!
Chemical Peels to Reduce Acne Scarring
As we age, dead skin cells don’t slough off and regenerate as efficiently as they do when we’re younger. A chemical peel mimics this process to alleviate imperfections such as acne scars and restore the youthful appearance of your skin.
In a chemical peel, we apply a chemical solution to the surface of your skin that’s specially formulated to break down and remove the outermost layer of damaged, dead skin cells. After the solution is given time to work, we peel it off to reveal smooth, youthful skin beneath!
We offer two levels of chemical peels at Spa MD. The lighter level is designed to treat acne scars and sun damage. The stronger chemical peels will penetrate into the skin to remedy deep wrinkles, age spots, and even pre-cancerous growths. All chemical peels are perfectly safe and have truly amazing results.
