Top 3 Advanced Acne Treatments Available for Breakouts & Scarring
Acne breakouts and scarring can happen to anyone at any age. Unfortunately, this common skin condition can have a negative impact on every aspect of our lives. What’s worse, over the counter creams, medications and serums often promise results they’re unable to achieve. The good news is, with medical intervention, you’ll be able to get your acne under control. Enjoy a smoother, blemish-free complexion with a simple, in-office evaluation and customized treatment plan.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer a wide range of treatments for active acne as well as residual scarring. Depending on your individual needs and goals, you may be better suited for one or more of the following options. Let’s take a closer look.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive solution for total skin rejuvenation, including mild acne scarring. The unique procedure creates tiny micro-injuries to the surface layer of the skin to effectively speed up cellular renewal. Radiofrequency Microneedling is a more advanced treatment to help improve the appearance of moderate to severe acne scars making the skin look and feel much smoother.
Fraxel® is the ideal treatment option for stubborn acne-related scars. The non-ablative wavelengths target specific layers within the skin to resurface and address unwanted scar tissue. Over time, scars gradually lighten and fade. As additional collagen goes to work, you’ll see a more even texture, tone, and overall complexion.
Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser
Halo™ uses both ablative and non-ablative techniques to effectively resurface the topmost layers of skin where acne is problematic. Halo is also helpful to reduce the look of pores. The unique laser treatment can be individualized based on the severity of your concerns as well as your end-goals. Halo™ treatments are done in-office and can produce exceptional results with a single session.
