ACNE SCARS AND YOUR SKIN
Although acne is most prevalent in teenagers due to hormonal changes, adults are also affected by the condition. Regardless of your age, the appearance of lesions is very noticeable and unattractive, especially on your face, shoulders, chest and back.
Acne scars are essentially inflamed blemishes caused by acne break-outs. While most shallow blemishes heal quickly, some cases produce long-term effects. When a deep break develops in the wall of a pore, infected material can spread to nearby tissue. When your body’s natural mechanisms attempt to repair this damage, the result can often be an unsightly blemish and a raised scar.
These issues can be addressed through a variety of approaches. The nature of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors, such as the type of skin you have and the severity of your condition. We will work to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically for you.
ACNE TREATMENT OPTIONS
Acne is a common skin condition that affects men and women of all ages and walks of life. Although it is most common among adolescents, acne also affects adults, particularly women who are experiencing hormonal changes.
Not everyone responds to the same type of treatment. The key to effectively treating acne is finding the best solution for your unique skin type. The experienced aestheticians at Legacy Aesthetics are committed to finding an individualized treatment plan that is customized just for you.
Depending on your condition and skin type, we may recommend:
- Chemical Peels: Among the many chemical peels offered at Legacy Aesthetics, some are particularly effective at treating acne: the Salicylic Acid Peel and the Renaissance Peel. The Salicylic Acid Peel treats acne, clogged pores and helps to maintain surface oils. The Renaissance Peel uses a combination formula to effectively reduce pore size and smooth uneven skin texture.
- Fraxel laser skin resurfacing: Our advanced Fraxel laser treatment harnesses your body’s natural healing process to deliver dramatic improvement in acne scars, skin tone and texture with little to no downtime.
- Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin with the gentle application of fine crystals to the face. The process removes dead skin cells, stimulates the formation of collagen and new skin cells, improving the health, texture and color of the skin.
- Microneedling: Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural ability to heal by encouraging collagen and elastin production by creating microscopic pinpoint wounds on the surface of your skin. The procedure effectively improves skin texture and the appearance of acne scars.
