The appearance of acne scars can be significantly improved with the help of the skincare professionals at Privá MedSpa. We offer several treatments to create smoother, evenly-toned skin, with a dramatic improvement in skin quality and appearance. 

How do you treat acne scars?

Every individual has a unique skin condition. Acne breakouts can leave the skin with distinct types of scars, along with skin discolorations. Your acne scar treatment will reflect the issues you most want to resolve. The types of acne scars include:

  • Ice-pick scars: Deep, narrow, pitted scars.
  • Rolling scars: Uneven skin texture with broad surface depressions.
  • Boxcar scars: Acne scars with edges that are more sharply defined.
  • Atrophic scars: Flatter, thinner, or depressed scars.
  • Hypertrophic scars: Thick, lumpy scars.

Can acne scars be improved?

At Privá MedSpa, we offer several treatments to improve the appearance of acne scars:

Morpheus8

The Morpheus8 system can be an excellent way to smooth acne-scarred skin. This treatment is performed to reduce the size of scars, with the added benefit of preventing scars in cases of active acne. The treatment involves RF fractional microneedling to trigger natural cell renewal. The device creates micro-injuries in the skin, enhanced with RF energy, enhancing the natural healing processes. The cells begin to regenerate, and more collagen is produced, leaving your skin smoother, healthier, and more evenly toned.

Microneedling

Microneedling, or “collagen induction therapy,” can help acne-scarred skin become smoother, firmer, and more even in tone and texture. This treatment can only be performed when your skin is not experiencing a breakout. The micro-channels created by the microneedling device trigger the natural healing mechanisms in the skin. A series of microneedling treatments can dramatically improve the appearance of acne scars.

Tetra CO2 laser

The Tetra CO2 laser system is considered to be the “gold standard” skin resurfacing device. For a dramatic improvement in skin smoothness, tone, and texture, this groundbreaking device goes above and beyond in results. The treatments have the advantage of requiring little to no downtime. Your skin is numbed before treatment, and the device is applied to the damaged areas. You may need a series of CoolPeel treatments to achieve the optimal improvement in the appearance of acne scars.

Your treatment experience at Privá MedSpa

We will ensure your comfort in every treatment. You will be resting as a numbing cream is applied to your skin. The cream takes some time to activate, and once your skin is numb, your treatment is performed. You should set aside about one hour for your acne scar treatment. You may need to schedule a series of treatments, spaced every four to six weeks, to achieve the optimal improvement in skin smoothness and quality.

Recovery time after acne treatments

Your recovery time will vary based on the treatment delivered:

  • Recovery time after Morpheus8 treatments: One of the advantages of a Morpheus8 treatment is the recovery time is minimal. Most people just return to their usual activities the day after the treatment. Your skin may be red or slightly inflamed for about a week or have minor swelling, but these side effects are negligible. Your skin will continue to heal for several weeks, continuing to improve in texture, tone, and quality.
  • Recovery time after microneedling: Microneedling does not involve a long recovery time and typically takes only one day, although it could be a little longer. Avoid sun exposure, always wear sunscreen if you need to go out, and you can apply makeup after the tiny micro-injuries heal, typically within 24 hours.
  • Recovery time after Tetra CO2 Laser: The Tetra CO2 laser system has revolutionized skin resurfacing. The device does not heat the surrounding tissues and does not require a long recovery time. Your skin could appear reddened for a day or two, like a mild sunburn. This device is a top-performer for acne scars, and the treatment comes with no downtime – just smoother, healthier, more evenly toned skin.
