It is no secret that acne is something that affects a huge percent of the population, usually during their teens and into early adulthood. It’s an unfortunate skin condition that goes beyond a few hormonal pimples every now and then. It can not only damage a person’s skin forever, but in doing so can also have a massive negative impact on their self-confidence and self-worth. In addition to topical treatments and medications, improvements in treatments for acne have been large and wide reaching in the past few years including the introduction of stem cell acne scar treatment. This means that those who have unsightly scars and uneven skin textures now have a chance to reverse some of the damage. Acne treatments have become one of the most common cosmetic procedures for spas and beauty salons across the country. Here are just some of the available treatments.
- High Frequency Cleaning
One of the most common acne treatments available at spas across the country is high frequency cleaning. As the name suggests, this is a treatment that works to kill acne bacteria buried deep within the skin using high frequency sound waves. This is a good course of treatment for those whose acne scarring is on the lower side of the spectrum.
- ZO Obagi Sulfur & Chemical Peel
This is a two pronged approach that combines a medical facial with a peel. It uses products developed by renowned dermatologist Zein Obagi. It is slightly more intensive and dedicated than simple high frequency cleaning and is an ideal way to not only treat the skin scarring, but to also dry out and eliminate any existing acne that might be working to cause further breakouts in the present.
- Micro Needling & Hyaluronic Acid
Micro needling is the treatment to choose if you have acne scars to get rid of, but no longer actually suffer from an active acne condition. There is no doubt that it has been proven to be one of the most effective forms of treatment for acne scarring that has become mainstream. As a result, it is obviously a slightly more expensive treatment than the others discussed above.
- Procell Micro Channeling
This is the absolute best of the best when it comes to current acne scar treatments. The process is very similar to normal micro needling in many of its stages, but with the addition of stem cell micro channeling it causes far less damage to the skin which is always a positive. The serum that it uses is a human growth factor stem cell, which helps to rebuild the collagen in your skin that was negatively affected by the acne scarring.
