There is Hope for Your Acne Scars

Acne Scar MiamiAcne can be a self-confidence killer in your teens and in your 20s, but for some people the acne scars that are left behind do not just damage them cosmetically. The emotional pain they can be caused by those scars can leave some people to shy away from any social contact, and even cause them to have such low self-esteem that they can even begin to feel worthless. What you need to know is that there is hope for your acne scars in Miami. There have been so many technological advances in with treatments, and all you need do is make an appointment to talk to a skilled professional.


Dermabrasion (Sanding)

Dermabrasion and micro-dermabrasion which are also known as sanding, are methods that can be used to deal with your scars. Dermabrasion is very rarely used, but at one point it was the go to treatment. Since it has a significant healing period, most physicians will now use micro-dermabrasion, which is far easier on your facial skin. During this process, a device is passed over the targeted areas of your skin, while it sends small pieces of aluminum oxide onto your face. Those are then vacuumed up, with the dead skin that has been lifted. The treatment can take from five minutes to an hour, and for you to see continued improvement, you should repeat it every few weeks. These treatments are generally used in conjunction with other treatments such as chemical peels.


Laser Treatments

In the hands of a skilled professional, a laser can give you impressive results in removing your acne scars in Miami. When a beam of laser energy is applied carefully to the scars on your face, particularly by using different power levels and in various depths, the outer layer of your skin can look smooth and clear. If it is applied deeper under the skin, you can even see increased collagen production, which helps improve your appearance.


Dermal Fillers

If you choose to go with dermal fillers, they work best combined with subcision. Subcision sounds like a much harder procedure than it is. It is the use of a needle to release the scar tissue before a filler is applied. Immediately after the scar is removed, the filler is put into place. As it dissolves into your body, collagen takes its place leaving you with virtually perfect results. If you are ready to get rid of your scars and increase your self-confidence, Avalon Medical Spa is a perfect place for you.
