Acne Scar Treatment
We offer two state of the art treatments for acne scarring – SkinPen micro-needling and Genius RF micro-needling. These procedures also work to improve the appearance of scarring from injuries (lacerations, car accidents) and chicken pox scars. SkinPen and Genius work to stimulate collagen, remodel acne scars, treat hyperpigmentation and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
SkinPen uses micro-needling on it’s own. Genius treatment combines the benefits of micro-needling with radiofrequency for even greater results.
Plan on completing a series of three to six treatments that are spaced one month apart.
Both treatments will cause redness of the treated area, that resolves quickly over the next 2-3 days. After each treatment you will apply a specially formulated serum the we sell exclusively called Peptide Booster. This soothing serum contains hyaluronate that draws water into the skin post procedure. Of even greater importance to the successful treatment of acne scarring Peptide Booster contains proteins (peptides) that have been shown to enhance collagen production. Three days post treatment you add our Vitamin C&E Serum to your home care. This serum delivers a high concentration of Vitamin C to the dermal layer of the skin where it assists in the production of collagen. After one week you will resume use of tretinoin or retinol. We recommend our potent Retinol Silk 100 at bedtime to further enhance your overall outcome and optimize results.
After you complete a series of treatments, any remaining scars may be evaluated for filler treatment.
