Most people will develop some form of acne at some point during their lifetime. For most, this is during the teenage years. If you have had acne, it was hopefully a kind from which you were able to recover rather easily and did not leave you with any permanent damage. A lot of people, however, have not been as fortunate. They are left with acne scars on their skin, and on the face in particular.
Hormonal changes play a big part in the development of acne. Because of these changes, the skin produces more oil, which can clog the pores and lead to the development of things like blackheads or whiteheads.
Acne impacts the lives of individuals in various ways. Likewise, the acne itself can differ from case to case. The mildest form of acne can sometimes be controlled with over-the-counter medications. Acne can progress to a level at which it cannot be adequately controlled without getting professional help. Inflammatory acne is acne that has gone past the basic acne that nearly everyone experiences at some point. It is acne that has become inflamed. It causes redness of the skin and can produce some discomforts, like burning sensations. If it isn’t adequately treated while it is in this stage, it can progress to cystic acne. This is the type of acne that can cause scarring. When these acne scars are present, the only way to eliminate them is with professional treatments.
At Eminence Medical Aesthetics, we are proud to offer professional treatments for both acne and the resulting acne scars. Treatments for acne may include the HydraFacial, the Vi Peel or the Cocoa Enzyme mask. A popular treatment for acne scars is laser skin resurfacing.
Acne scars often leave the face with pitted areas. Producing extra collagen in the deeper layers will help these pits to be filled in and no longer visible. Laser skin resurfacing can help to give you an overall younger-looking appearance. The skin will be smoother and more even in tone. It will have a level of fullness that you might not have enjoyed since your younger years. The treatment will also help the appearance by addressing any acne scars you might have.
If you are concerned about the way past cases of acne have impacted your appearance and want to know if you are a good candidate for professional acne scar treatments, you should schedule a consultation at Eminence Medical Aesthetics to discuss your options.
