It’s bad enough that you have to endure all the breakouts and redness of acne. For years you walk around wishing that you could hide your face until the breakouts go away. But then, as you grow older, you realize that now you have to endure the ugly scars that acne leaves behind. Now you are wishing that you could hide your face due to unsightly scarring.
Microneedling is a treatment for acne scars that stimulates the production of the skin’s own collagen and elastin. It does this through the use of a hand-held device that is applied to your skin by a trained professional. This device contains a number of microneedles that will puncture your skin with controlled depth to create tiny skin injuries. Once this happens, your body will take over in order to heal your skin and will produce new collagen and elastin to heal and fill in those spots.
The average treatment takes about an hour. Before the microneedling begins, a numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated. The device is then moved over the area being treated. After the treatment, most patients see redness in the area for 2 to 4 days, and then the redness subsides leaving you with skin that glows and looks more refreshed and smooth. Because new collagen and elastin are being produced, you will notice improvements for the next few weeks and up to 6 months. Moderate acne scarring will usually require 3 to 4 treatments to achieve the best results.
Microneedling & Halo Laser Consultations Available
The Halo Laser treatment uses a combination of two types of wavelengths to heal scarring. It uses an ablative wavelength to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin and a non-ablative wavelength to penetrate the skin and stimulate long-term collagen production. A typical treatment takes approximately one hour to complete. Pigmented acne scars will begin to fade over the course of several weeks. Optimal results can be seen in 3 to 6 weeks as skin cells are renewed thanks to additional collagen production. Most acne scars can be treated with one Halo treatment.
There is no downtime with the Halo Laser treatment. Patients will experience some minor swelling and redness for 1 to 3 days. The skin will be sensitive to the sun’s UV rays so sunscreen must be worn when the skin is exposed to the sun. Patients also experience some flaking skin for the first few weeks, but the experts at Juvanew Medspa will have great tips and professional products to help. While the improvements are gradual, they are also long-lasting, which makes the Halo Laser treatment a great option for those who suffer with acne scars.
