Acne and acne scars can be very difficult to treat. Over-the-counter remedies can be hit or miss, or they can even make things worse. Luckily, though, you have quite a few different options available at New Look Skin Center for treating your acne problems!
In this procedure, tiny needles are used to puncture the skin. This begins the skin’s healing process, which produces collagen and elastin. It is like new, scar-free skin is being made, and it can also help to heal active acne. It will also give your skin a refreshed, glowing, healthy look.
PRP stands for “platelet rich plasma,” and it involves the use of your own cells to stimulate new collagen to grow to treat acne scars. The procedure is quick and painless – a small amount of your blood is drawn and the PRP is separated out. It is then injected into your skin. It is used for many things, such as baldness and to treat traumatic injuries, but it can also help make acne scars disappear.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy. It has the benefits of microneedling, which creates tiny wounds to encourage new collagen and elastin to be produced, but the radiofrequency energy allows even deeper layers of the skin to be reconstructed. Morpheus8 can also be combined with other treatments, depending on the results you would like to see.
This laser treatment destroys the bacteria that causes acne and helps to reduce the skin’s sebum production. Laser treatments have many benefits – they are noninvasive; patients report, at most, discomfort but no pain; there are few risks of side effects; and, there is no downtime needed afterward and you can get right back to your normal activities.
You don’t have to depend on over-the-counter acne treatments that don’t do much to help with your acne problems. You have several different options available, and if you suffer with acne or acne scars, the staff at New Look Skin Center can help you decide which treatment is best for you.
