Some of our most popular treatments for acne scars are the PicoSure Laser, Fraxel Dual Laser and RadioFrequency Microneedling.
At Glow Medi Spa, we have several options for acne scar treatments, mainly depending on the depth of the scars. For superficial scars, it may be helpful to treat the outer layer of the skin, called the stratum corneum. Treatments such as Chemical Peels can address the outer layer of the skin.
For deeper scars, non-surgical options typically include ablative and non-ablative laser skin resurfacing. At Glow Medi Spa, we perform Fraxel Dual Laser Treatments and RadioFrequency Microneedling Treatments which are non-ablative services for effective scar reduction with minimal down-time, risks, and pain. A consultation will help determine which treatment is best for you.
Fraxel Dual Laser is extremely effective for permanent reduction of acne scars. It is our most common acne scar treatment due to the high level of client satisfaction. Fraxel Dual is a deep laser treatment that can target the deep acne scars, even pitted scars. It can also treat the hyper-pigmentation (increased dark colour) commonly seen in acne scars.
Microneedling uses very fine needles that enter the skin at precise depths, depending on the patient’s goals. This controlled puncturing of the skin helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, uneven skin texture, large pores, and scars. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is simultaneously delivered to the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen production, resulting in tighter skin. For improved comfort, we incorporate galvanic energy in our treatments. Galvanic energy contributes to the comfort of the procedure by changing the pH balance of the skin, which is a way of subtly anesthetizing the skin. Radiofrequency Microneedling is safe for all skin types and has minimal downtime.
For optimal results, a series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart are recommended. This will be discussed during your consultation. Book a consultation and see what treatment is best suited for your skin’s needs.
