No matter what your age, acne scars could be affecting your desire to go out and socialize, your confidence in the workplace, and your self-esteem. You may even be dealing with depression or anxiety. But you don’t have to let acne scars stop you from getting out there and enjoying your life.
At LUXE Medical Spa in Frisco, Texas, Dr. Sherryl Shipes and our team of skilled aestheticians offer multiple options for treating acne scars. Here’s what you need to know about these treatments.
LUXE Perfect Derma Peel
At LUXE, we offer The Perfect Peel®️, which reduces the appearance of acne scars on all skin types. After a series of 3-4 peels each month, you notice a significant improvement. This chemical peel is one of the best ways to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
The star ingredient is glutathione, an antioxidant naturally found in your body that neutralizes damage from free radicals. It works by increasing cellular turnover, leaving you with less noticeable acne scars. The number of treatments you need depends on how severe your scars are.
Microneedling with SkinPen®️
The SkinPen is a small, handheld microneedling device that treats acne scars. It works by pricking your skin with tiny needles, which stimulates collagen production and the healing process.
After treatment, your skin looks smoother, and your acne scars look smaller. This method isn’t recommended if you have active acne, because it could make it worse.
Intense pulsed light therapy
If you’ve heard the terms photofacial or photo rejuvenation, you’re already familiar with skin resurfacing and intense pulsed light (IPL). We use one of the top products on the market — the EVO FORTE IPL system — to treat acne scars.
It works by sending bursts of light from the applicator to your skin. Different wavelengths of light kill bacteria and even out your skin tone. The dark, red areas so common with acne scars become less noticeable, boosting your confidence. Two or three treatments may be all you need, but everyone’s skin is different.
A HydraFacial is a three-step process that cleans and exfoliates your skin. It works well on clogged pores and blackheads and makes your skin smoother overall. It’s an excellent complementary treatment for any of the others mentioned above.
Don’t let acne scars embarrass you or hold you back any longer. If you’re interested in any of these treatments, speak with one of our master aestheticians to determine which method is right for you. To schedule a consultation, call (469) 306-4516 or use our online booking tool today.
