How Do Acne and Acne Scarring Occur?
Acne is mainly caused by the buildup of bacteria in our pores. Genetics and environmental factors can also contribute to this problem, often leading to breakouts and flare-ups. After a breakout, scars form when our bodies rapidly release collagen to counteract the damage. As a result of this rapid release, our skin becomes thicker and less flexible, giving it that characteristic bumpy texture.
What Are the Signs?
Skin redness and irritation are among the most telling signs of acne-prone skin. Whiteheads, blackheads, and tender lumps are also common in those who experience frequent breakouts. Having an uneven skin texture is an indication of flare-ups that heal poorly and result in scarring.
Acne Treatment Options
ADVATx® Skin Rejuvenation is an excellent laser treatment for eliminating acne and scarring. This device is FDA-approved and uses two laser wavelengths to heat the skin and resolve textural issues gently. This heat effectively kills bacteria and cleanses your skin. Our PRP Microneedling Facial is a great alternative that uses your plasma to encourage collagen production and proper, uniform skin healing.
Along with these options, we also offer several skincare lines including, Obagi®, SkinMedica®, and skinbetter science®. The right choice for you can be explored during your initial consultation here at our Reno office.
