Is There a Solution to Treat Acne in Teenagers or Adults?

Acne is the most common problem in either teenagers or adults. When pores in the skin become blocked, bacteria builds up, leading to breakouts. If untreated these can leave behind scar tissue —but now there are solutions to treat both the acne and scar tissue. Acne can be inwardly and outwardly scarring, causing low self-esteem and leaving lasting visible reminders on your face. If you have ever asked what you can do about these scars or if you can ever get rid of them, there are options. Some people consider seeing a dermatologist in order to get their acne under control or to reduce the appearance of scarring. Often times, a dermatologist may recommend that you seek out specialized treatments designed to get rid of acne scarring and significantly improve the skin’s overall appearance. 

Needling, Vi Acne Peel or Fractional Pixel laser skin treatments are able to pinpoint and treat various skin issues. Acne scarring is one of the most common issues that patients deal with later in life but there is no reason to live with scar tissue or active acne any longer.

How does Needling work?

Needling is an advanced technology using multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface, it stimulates natural collagen reproduction and allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. With this it allows for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to fee the underlying cells found in the dermis.

Who is Vi Acne Peel for?

This Peel has undergone an intense clinical study of its safety and efficacy.  It opens pores by cleaning out dead cells, kills acne bacteria and soothes inflammation and redness.

What is Pixel?

The Pixel laser is the most advanced FDA-approved laser technology on the market. These laser skin resurfacing treatments give patients younger and brighter looking skin, while also renewing the skin’s overall texture and pigmentation.
