If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from persistent acne, the hope of treatment can seem elusive.
But it’s not just the acne itself that can be troublesome. If you’ve struggled with significant acne, you know the scarring it leaves behind can affect your confidence profoundly. You might find yourself dodging the camera at parties or covering your skin in thick foundation to hide uneven skin tone and pitting.
If you’re at the end of your rope with acne or skin damage from acne scarring, our team of cosmetic dermatology professionals at Arijai Aesthetics can help. Here are just a few effective treatment options that help you heal acne, minimize the appearance of scarring, and improve your overall skin tone.
SkinPen Microneedling Treatments
Damage from acne is just one of the problems that can affect your skin’s coloration, smoothness, and overall appearance. Sun damage, the environment, and even the natural aging process can also affect your skin tone and firmness. Microneedling treatments can help improve the appearance of your skin if it’s been affected by any of these things.
With SkinPen microneedling, we use a tiny needle that creates microscopic injuries in the outer layer (aka the epidermis). This stimulates your body’s natural healing abilities. The end result is beautiful, glowing skin you’ll be happy to show off in front of a camera.
If you’ve considered microdermabrasion, Dermalinfusion is an excellent alternative treatment option. Dermalinfusion is a three-in-one treatment that exfoliates, extracts, and infuses your skin with nourishing and hydrating nutrients. The procedure also helps your skin absorb antioxidants for added healing.
This resurfacing treatment will leave your skin radiant and rejuvenated after just one session. If you want to get maximum benefit, though, you’ll likely want to schedule treatments at regular intervals according to your provider’s recommendation.
If you’re specifically targeting acne or another skin condition, you may need three to six treatments, probably space two to four weeks apart. From there, you can likely schedule treatments less frequently at monthly intervals.
As an added bonus, any cosmetic products you normally use will apply and sit much more smoothly on your skin after a Dermalinfusion session. Be sure to follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions for protecting your delicate skin after each treatment (wear sunscreen!).
If you’ve lived with persistent acne for a while, you know it can be difficult to camouflage even with the highest-quality cosmetic products. Redness and irritation may also be a concern for you, especially if you struggle with cystic acne. The SaltFacial can help.
SaltFacial combines LED light therapy and cavitation ultrasound with the healing power of sea salt to increase circulation while stimulating elastin and collagen production. After a SaltFacial treatment, your skin will feel far more refreshed, softer, and smoother than it has in some time.
You can also pair this treatment with dermaplaning to create a perfect canvas for makeup application and to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
More commonly known as dermaplaning, dermablading is a simple yet highly effective treatment for minimizing the appearance of acne scarring. In addition to improving the appearance of scarring, dermablading can also help improve:
The procedure essentially involves getting your face shaved, so it’ll eliminate any tiny vellus hairs (peach fuzz) that you don’t particularly like. But rather than simply shaving your face with a regular razor, your practitioner will use a medical-grade blade, called a dermatome, to perform the procedure.
They’ll gently pull your skin taught in small sections before carefully moving the blade across your skin to shave away the uppermost layers of your epidermis. Because the procedure exfoliates away dying, dry, and dead skin cells, it reveals a much healthier, smoother, more radiant complexion in just a single session.
But, as with most skin care treatments, you’ll want to schedule routine appointments to keep your skin looking fresh. Getting regular dermablading treatments will help improve the appearance of acne scarring more so than just a single session or random sessions every now and again.
Although you might be tempted to try your hand at dermaplaning your face at home, it’s not as easy as you might assume. Check out our blog on the risks of doing your own dermablading to learn more.
