Acne Treatment Q&A
What is acne?
Acne is caused when dead skin cells get stuck in sebum, an oil produced by your own skin, and clogs your pores. A bacteria known as P. acnes infiltrates these clogged pores, resulting in pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts that make up acne.
Acne causes irritation and pain, and it can make you feel self-conscious and lower your self-esteem. Severe acne outbreaks in youth can lead to permanent facial scarring.
What acne treatments are available?
For serious outbreaks of acne, you may require antibiotics or hormone therapies to manage the condition. For milder outbreaks or resolution of scarring, Juvanni MedSpa offers:
- Laser treatment
These treatments help stimulate your body to produce more collagen, a structural skin protein, to reduce the appearance of scarring. They also clear up clogged pores and regulate your production of sebum to minimize future outbreaks.
How does laser treatment heal acne and acne scars?
The laser skin care offered at Juvanni MedSpa is some of the most advanced technology available and successfully treats wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone and texture. The treatment also successfully reduces the look of acne scars. During laser skin care, pulses of intense, controlled energy are directed to treatment areas. The energy penetrates your outer layers of skin to reach deep to the underlying collagen and elastin below. Laser treatments stimulate your body’s natural healing response to restore skin strength, structure, and flexibility.
The heat energy from the laser also shrinks the sebaceous glands that produce oil in the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria.
How is microneedling a helpful acne treatment?
At Juvanni MedSpa, the team uses Aquagold® Fine Touch™ to create a series of micro-channels in the skin to stimulate the production of collagen to ease the look of acne scars. The microneedling process also clears up the buildup of makeup residue, cellular debris, and other impurities that can block pores and aggravate acne.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a professional exfoliation therapy that uses a stream of tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin. By sanding away the outermost layers of skin, many skin complaints disappear, including:
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Crow’s feet
- Acne scars
The procedure takes 30-60 minutes and requires no downtime. You reveal fresh, glowing skin, sans scars, right after treatment.
