Facials are skincare treatments designed to rejuvenate and refresh your skin. They typically involve a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, steam, and various products tailored to your skin type and concerns. During a facial, a trained esthetician assesses your skin’s condition and customizes the treatment to address acne or acne scars. Facials also promote relaxation, leaving you with a revitalized and glowing complexion.

How Facials Treat Acne

Facials are an effective part of a comprehensive acne treatment plan. Cleansing and exfoliation help remove excess oil, dead skin cells, and impurities that can clog pores and contribute to acne. Furthermore, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide combat acne by reducing inflammation and bacteria. The extraction process can help clear out existing acne lesions. Additionally, facials can improve skin’s overall health by promoting circulation and enhancing the absorption of topical acne medications.

Medical-Grade Skincare

Medical-grade skincare refers to skincare products that are formulated with higher concentrations of active ingredients. These products are carefully designed to address specific skin concerns and undergo rigorous testing to ensure their effectiveness and safety. Medical-grade skincare typically contains a range of potent ingredients, such as retinoids, antioxidants, and alpha hydroxy acids, which can deliver remarkable results for skin rejuvenation.

How Medical-Grade Skincare Treats Acne

Medical-grade skincare contains potent anti-acne ingredients. Retinoids promote skin cell turnover, preventing the formation of comedones (clogged pores) and reducing inflammation associated with acne. Alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid, exfoliate the skin’s surface to unclog pores. Additionally, medical-grade skincare often includes antibacterial agents like benzoyl peroxide, which can kill acne-causing bacteria. When incorporated into a well-rounded acne treatment plan, skincare can help you achieve and maintain clear, acne-free skin.

Microneedling With PRP

Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is an advanced cosmetic procedure that combines the benefits of microneedling with the healing properties of your body’s own platelets. During the treatment, a specialized device creates tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Then, platelet-rich plasma, obtained from a small blood sample taken from the patient, is applied to the treated area. These platelets contain growth factors and cytokines that promote collagen production and tissue regeneration.

How Microneedling With PRP Treats Acne

Microneedling with PRP can be an effective treatment for acne. The micro-injuries from microneedling prompt the body’s natural wound-healing response, including collagen formation and tissue remodeling. Microneedling breaks up acne scars and stimulates collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and reduced scar visibility.

Meanwhile, the growth factors and cytokines in PRP accelerate the healing process and reduce inflammation, making it beneficial for active acne breakouts. Microneedling with PRP helps you maintain acne-free skin and correct the scars caused by persistent acne.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 RF microneedling is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology. During the treatment, a handheld device with tiny needles is used to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface while simultaneously delivering RF energy. This dual-action approach stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin, resulting in improved texture, tone, and firmness.

How Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Treats Acne

Morpheus8 RF microneedling can be a highly effective method for addressing acne. The micro-injuries from the needles trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This helps to smooth out acne scars and improve overall skin texture.

The RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, causing collagen contraction and further enhancing skin tightness. Together, these actions can reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve overall skin quality.

Acne Treatment FAQs

Can acne be treated at home with over-the-counter products?

Yes, mild cases of acne can often be managed with over-the-counter products containing ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. However, for moderate to severe acne or persistent cases, you need professional acne treatments.

How long does it take to see results from acne treatments?

The timeframe for acne treatment results varies depending on the severity of the acne and the chosen treatment. Some individuals may notice improvement within a few weeks, while others may require several months of consistent treatment to see significant changes.

Can I combine different acne treatments for better results?

Combining treatments like medical-grade skincare with in-office procedures like microneedling can often yield better results. However, please consult our aesthetic providers to determine the most suitable treatment plan for your needs.
