Acne & Scarring in Jupiter, FL
Acne and scarring often go together, and both issues can cause low self-esteem. Fortunately, there are treatment options available to address acne outbreaks and reduce the visibility of many types of scarring, including acne scars. Come to Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics to undergo treatment for acne and scarring in Jupiter, FL.
Causes of Acne & Scarring
Acne comes in three main types: comedonal, inflammatory, and nodulocystic. It can appear in many forms, such as blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, and papules.
Scars form as part of the body’s healing process after skin damage or trauma. When the correct care is given to these wounds, the chance of scar formation is minimized. Acne scars occur when acne pustules are popped instead of being given proper treatment.
There are three types of acne scars: hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars, and keloid scars. Atrophic scars can be categorized as ice-pick scars, rolling scars, or boxcar scars.
Whatever the cause of your acne and scarring may be, treatment options are available at Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics.
Your Acne & Scarring treatments will be performed by the Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics team located in Jupiter, FL.
Should I Have My Acne & Scarring Professionally Treated?
In many cases, professional treatment is necessary to address acne and scarring. If acne is painful or keeps coming back, it may be best to come in for a professional diagnosis and a recommendation of treatment options.
An outbreak of acne can also lead to multiple acne scars that can leave the face pockmarked. Mild acne scars may go away on their own, but harsh acne scars often require treatment.
Mild, moderate, and severe scars require different types of treatment. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin due to scarring, it is best to arrange a consultation.
Treatments for Acne & Scarring at Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics
Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics offers a wide range of treatments to help with acne and scarring. These can be applied to targeted areas in a strategic approach, either alone or in combination. Many of these treatments require several sessions for optimal results.
HydraFacials: These facial treatments involve the use of a specialized wand that provides exfoliation, hydration, extraction, and nourishing serums. The combination of these techniques reduces acne and improves the appearance of scars and acne scars.
Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are acid-based solutions formulated to permeate the skin layers. After damaged skin cells are exfoliated, new undamaged skin cells appear. This reduces the appearance of scars. To treat acne, chemical peels destroy acne-causing bacteria, unclog pores, reduce the amount of oil in the skin, and lessen inflammation.
VI Peels: VI Peels are gentle medium-depth chemical peels that are safe for patients of all skin tones and skin types. They are typically composed of trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, vitamin C, and other ingredients. They can be used to address acne breakouts and various scars.
Microneedling: This acne-scar treatment stimulates the skin’s healing response by creating tiny microinjuries in the tissues. New collagen protein is created, fading the targeted scars and acne scars.
PRP: PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is an injectable created using a sample of the patient’s own blood. By injecting this combination of concentrated platelets and plasma into a scar, growth factors are delivered to the area, resulting in new volume and smoothness.
Microneedling with PRP: The combination of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma provides enhanced reduction of scars and acne scars. The microscopic holes in the skin tissues allow for greater penetration of platelet-rich plasma, resulting in improved healing on a deeper level.
Fraxel: Fraxel is a laser scar treatment that targets numerous very small sections of the skin. By leaving the surrounding skin undamaged, the healing rate is much faster. The energy from this laser removes damaged skin cells and encourages production of new collagen and skin cells.
Alexandrite 755 Laser Treatment: This red-light laser reduces the appearance of pigmented scars. The Alexandrite 755 laser locks onto the pigment cells, and the heat from the laser energy destroys the cells. This stimulates creation of collagen and fresh and undamaged skin cells.
