Leave Acne Scars in the Past

Whether you suffered from acne in adulthood or adolescence, it can leave a lasting impact on your body and mind. Even after the acne is gone, the scars can negatively affect your self-image and the way others perceive you.

Dealing with acne is traumatic enough. You shouldn’t have to relive that trauma with acne scars.

Kelso Lake Medical Cosmetics offers treatments to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Our team treats you with compassion, sensitivity, and professionalism. We’ll work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your skin’s needs.

Micro-needling

We treat acne scars with a micro-needling procedure, which is designed to stimulate collagen production in your skin by administering tiny pinpricks to the treatment area.

We perform micro-needling treatments with an instrument called an InnoPen. The InnoPen features tiny needles on one end, which are sterile and disposable.

As we move the InnoPen over your skin, the tiny needles make small punctures in the skin. Your body registers these punctures and deploys a healing response to repair them. The skin starts developing collagen as part of that healing response.

Collagen is a protein that’s partially responsible for your skin’s hydration, firmness, and elasticity. When acne-damaged skin develops more collagen, it can help to fill in the scars, reducing their appearance.

Micro-needling can be used for various treatments. Your experience with micro-needling will depend on a combination of factors, including your body’s response and what you’re having done.

Generally speaking, we start the process by applying some topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once the skin is numb enough, we’ll begin micro-needling. The length of your appointment depends on the size and complexity of the treatment area.

Afterwards, you may experience some redness, swelling, and warmth around the treatment area, which could last for a few days. You may also develop some bruising and peeling. To minimize both bruising and peeling, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions before you leave your appointment. Be sure to follow them to get the best results and minimize discomfort.

Most patients enjoy noticeable results within 2-4 weeks, though you may require multiple treatments to get the results you want.

Platelet-Rich Plasma for Acne Scar Reduction

We use platelet-rich plasma, or PRP in conjunction with micro-needling to reduce the appearance of acne scars. We make PRP from a sample of your blood. Using a centrifuge, we separate your red blood cells from the other main components of your blood: platelets and plasma.

After your micro-needling treatment, we will apply the PRP to the treatment area. The proteins in the PRP sink into the tiny puncture wounds in your skin, where they help repair damaged skin.

The addition of PRP to micro-needling increases your body’s natural healing abilities, working more effectively than micro-needling alone.
