Acne Scar Therapy
SkinPen is medical micro-needling, and it is used to stimulate collagen, remodel acne scars, treat hyperpigmentation and improve the appearance of the skin.
In Omaha Dr. Abbott uses SkinPen Precision. Make sure your provider only uses the only FDA approved device, known as SkinPen Precision.
We have performed hundreds of SkinPen procedures. This speaks to how effective this treatment is! Pictured are “Before” and “After” results reported with one patient who treated acne scars with a series of six SkinPen treatments. Individual results will vary from person to person, but we have seen positive results in almost all of our patients.
SkinPen can also improve the appearance of scarring from injuries (lacerations, car accidents), chicken pox scars and stretch marks.
Plan on spending 1 hour with us for each treatment. Treatments are spaced 1 month apart. The best results for acne scarring is a package of 6 treatments. Your investment for 6 treatments is $1,800. (This is less than the cost of one laser resurfacing visit).
SkinPen will cause redness of the treated area, that dissipates quickly over the next 1-3 days. You will apply a special formulated serum containing long chain proteins (called peptides) that have been shown to enhance collagen production. Two days after SkinPen, you will also start Vitamin C serum (an important co-factor required for the production of new collagen). These products are available directly from Dr. Abbott at Omaha Med Spa.
After you complete a series of treatments, any remaining scars may be evaluated for filler treatment. Contact Dr. Abbott for a free consultation to see if this option is right for you. Dr. Abbott will choose from a variety of Juvederm fillers that do an excellent job of softening the appearance of scar tissue.
