Personalized Treatment for the Best Results

Acne and acne scars are a source of low self-esteem for many individuals. This issue affects men and women of all ages, including those who are far past their teenage years. Everyone’s skin, acne, and scars are different, so it’s very important to take a personalized approach. At our medical spa, your unique skin will be evaluated so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan just for you. 

How Acne and Acne Scarring is Treated

Again, everyone is different — so there is no concrete treatment for acne and acne scarring. Our skincare professionals may determine that one treatment or a combination of treatments will work best for your skin. This is why your consultation is an important part of the process. Read below to learn more about our techniques for targeting acne and acne scars.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is well known to be one of the very best methods for treating acne scars. Powerful, controlled laser light is used directly on the skin, which results in the production of healthy new skin cells.

If laser skin resurfacing is right for you and you properly undergo the correct amount of laser resurfacing treatments recommended for you, your skin’s tone and texture will be significantly improved, and any scarring will be reduced. We use the Secret™ Pro laser, which includes two separate handpieces: one for laser resurfacing and one for microneedling, both of which are excellent for acne and acne scarring. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments utilize your skin’s own healing properties to reduce the appearance of acne scars. PRP comes from your blood, and houses growth factors to repair damaged skin. Once the blood has been drawn from your arm and the plasma has been isolated, it can be administered to your face in different ways: directly with a syringe; in combination with laser resurfacing, or in combination with microneedling (see below).

Microneedling

Microneedling is an excellent way to treat acne and acne scars. Although you shouldn’t have microneedling done if you have an active breakout, it does help control acne. The procedure works by creating micro-punctures into the skin, which your body then repairs with brand-new, healthy tissue. The result is reduced scarring. PRP (see above) is combined with microneedling, it furthers the results even more because it speeds up the tissue repair. This study reported that PRP with microneedling reduced acne scars by 62.20%. 

AGNES RF 
The AGNES™ RF microneedling device is a safe, cutting-edge microneedling technology that delivers radiofrequency waves to the skin to help destroy oil-producing glands without damaging the skin around them. AGNES has been proven to prevent future acne outbreaks while reducing the appearance of existing scars and pitting.

Secret RF 
Secret RF microneedling is a great choice for acne scars. This 24K gold microneedling device with radiofrequency helps improve pore size and acne scars. The skin is also tightened, and new collagen is built. 

Facials    

Facials are an excellent way to control acne breakouts. By taking good care of your skin with regular facials that have been personalized to your specific skin type and problems, you can clear up your skin and enjoy a radiant, healthy complexion. Our team at Cara Plastic Surgery’s medical spa can develop an acne-combatting treatment plan just for you. 

Gold PTT Facial: Gold photothermal therapy treats acne by using gold nanoparticles together with specialized lasers to effectively reduce acne by clearing the sebaceous follicles; reducing sebum production, and alleviating acne lesions.

Skin Booster Injections

Skin booster injections help improve skin elasticity, skin tone, and thickness. This may be an effective treatment for those with mild acne scarring.
