At Specialty MedSpa, we have several options to help improve the appearance of your acne scars.  Our Genius Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment and PIXEL CO2 laser are both great options to resurface your skin and stimulate your own body’s repair process naturally.  We can even add on PRP (platelet rich plasma) to enhance results!   

A series of treatments are typically needed depending on the severity of the acne scarring.

How do Acne and Scar Treatments work?

Acne and scar treatments work by addressing the underlying causes of these skin conditions.

Acne treatments can reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and kill bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Scar treatments can stimulate collagen production, smooth out the skin, and reduce the appearance of scars. Laser therapy, micro-needling, dermabrasion, and other procedures can also help to resurface the skin and encourage the growth of healthy skin cells.

By targeting the specific causes of acne and scarring, these treatments can help to improve skin texture and tone, boost self-esteem, and promote overall skin health.

Who is a candidate for Acne and Scar Treatments?

Candidates for acne and scar treatments are individuals who struggle with acne breakouts or scarring and want to improve the appearance of their skin.
Acne treatments may be recommended for those with mild to severe acne, while scar treatments are best for those with visible scars from injury or acne. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the results of the treatment, and are committed to following a recommended skincare regimen.
