Are acne scars putting a damper on your self-confidence? If so, you’re not alone – but there’s no reason to be discouraged because we’ve rounded up some of the best treatments available to help banish those pesky scars and reveal clear, beautiful skin. There are a a lot of effective acne scar treatments these days, including ILP, microneedling, and chemical peels. In this article, we’ll explore these treatments in depth and discuss how they can help you achieve clear, smooth skin. Whether you’re struggling with mild or severe acne scars, there is a solution for you! Let’s dive in and discuss a few of these methods.
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light (IPL) or Photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of light to reduce the appearance of scared, aged or sun-damaged skin. The treatment can improve the appearance of various skin issues such as sun and age spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, rosacea, red acne scars, facial redness, and fine lines and wrinkles. IPL treatments require little to no downtime and have a high degree of client satisfaction.
Microneedling is another effective acne scar treatment. The Vivace RF Microneedling System which we use at Alite Laser is a minimally invasive treatment for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks. By using radio frequency and microneedling together, the Vivace stimulates collagen production in the skin for outstanding results with minimal downtime. The microneedling device creates microscopic channels in the dermis, which allows the body to produce new collagen. Radiofrequency energy flows through the needles, promoting rapid healing. A specialized soothing mask and boost serum are applied to help the skin heal faster with better hydration. The Vivace RF Microneedling System provides excellent results for people of all skin types.
Chemical peels are a popular and effective treatment for acne scars that can, however, be associated with peeling and downtime with many methods. Fortunately, at Alite Laser, we have a special solution that avoids these pitfalls. PRX-T33 is a non-invasive and painless chemical peel that effectively stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, leading to revitalization of the area without excessive peeling or downtime. This peel is doubly effective as most moderate strength peels and can address issues such as poor skin texture, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and acne. A series of PRX-T33 treatments, once a week for four weeks, is recommended to achieve the best results, which include significant tightening and long-lasting glow. The formula includes 33% TCA, H2O2 in low concentrations, and Kojic acid, providing all the benefits of a high percentage TCA peel without associated side effects or downtime. The TCA penetrates to the deeper skin layers, stimulating immediate hydration, firmness, and tightening of the skin, while PRX-T33 promotes stimulation of fibroblasts and growth factors without causing inflammation or skin damage. This is a great way to treat acne scars while also maximizing the other benefits associated with this procedure!
