Acne scars form because of severely inflamed acne lesions. When acne occurs near the skin’s surface, the wounds usually heal without scarring. However, deeper lesions and acute inflammation can cause damage at the dermal level, resulting in acne scars such as “ice pick” or “pitted” scars. Acne scars often become more noticeable with age as the skin loses collagen.
At PCI Wellness, we offer non-invasive acne scar treatments that diminish the appearance of both depressed and raised acne scars by remodeling the deeper layers of the skin, increasing the formation of healthy new collagen and evening out the skin surface.
On average, 60% of people in the United States will experience mild to moderate breakouts between the ages of 15 to 24. In some cases, mild acne can be attributed to hormonal fluctuations; however, there is never a time too early to begin to treat acne.
While there are many treatment options available for acne, both prescription and over-the-counter, these do not work for everyone. When acne is particularly stubborn or severe, a more advanced solution may be needed.
We have a full array of treatments from laser resurfacing, to chemical peels, to dermal fillers, to quality skin care products and everything in between. Alma’s powerful acne laser treatment uses a combination of laser technology and simultaneous contact cooling for more comfortable treatment and a unique vacuum mechanism to treat all forms of acne vulgaris.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types, has no side effects and achieves a clearer, smoother complexion with lasting results. At PCI Wellness, we will gladly customize a treatment plan specific for your individual needs and desired outcome.
How long does it last?
Men and women with minor acne can expect acne treatments to last four to six weeks. For our clients who experience increased signs and symptoms of acne, we customize a treatment plan specific for your individual needs and desired outcome. Severe acne, which often presents with cystic lesions usually requires multiple modalities of treatment along with continued follow-up care for successful management and long term success.
