Microdermabrasion For Acne Scar Treatment
Acne is by far one of the most common skincare issues across the US. While it is commonly believed that acne is an issue that is exclusive to our teenage years, this is actually not the case – in fact, acne is suffered by nearly 50% of all adults in the US, in one form or another. And while acne issues can be severe on their own, they often lead to an even worse issue – acne scars. Acne scars typically arise once acne has healed poorly or on its own, without proper medical intervention. When an individual suffers from severe, cystic acne, that is highly inflamed, and it is left to heal on its own, often times it will cause acne scars to develop. As a response to the infection that causes acne, the body will send collagen proteins to the infection site, in order to trigger cellular turnover and resurface the acne infected skin, with newly regenerated skin to take its place. However, because there is no medical intervention, this collagen response goes unregulated and when there is too little or too much collagen sent to the area, an acne scar will develop. Too much collagen will lead to a raised, prominent acne scar or lesion, while too little collagen will lead to a depressed acne scar that appears as a divot along the skin’s surface. While acne scars are somewhat permanent, at Aesthetic Solutions they offer some of the most innovative methods of acne scar treatment Queens has to offer, and they have helped countless patients to reduce the presence of their acne scars, in many cases leaving them almost unnoticeable. One such treatment is microdermabrasion, one of the most effective method to exfoliate and resurface the skin of its outer, dead skin layers, and stimulate the regeneration of newly formed, fresh skin cells in their place. During this process, it is possible to reduce the presence of acne scars a great deal. To better help you understand this method of acne scar treatment Queens medical spa Aesthetic Solutions offers these important things to know about microdermabrasion.
What is Microdermabrasion? When Should it Be Used?
Microdermabrasion has proved to be one of the most effective aesthetic enhancement skincare treatments around – helping patients to exfoliate unwanted, dead skin cells and the outer layers of damaged skin. In addition, the procedure helps to stimulate the production of fresh collagen and trigger the growth of new skin cells as well. Microdermabrasion works using microcrystals along the skin’s surface and remove the outer layer of skin cells. Exfoliation is one of the most important aspects of skincare, as it allows us to not only remove dead, damaged skin, but to regenerate the skin with more skin cells.
Initially, microdermabrasion came about as a method to alleviate blotches of hyperpigmentation, brown age spots, and scars as a result of pox outbreaks. By removing each layer of skin, layer by layer, we are able to reduce the appearance of these scars, as most of these types of scars are superficial and appear only at the skin’s outer layers. Over time, and with multiple sessions, we can drastically reduce their appearance.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
When it comes to acne scar treatment Queens medical spa Aesthetic Solutions offers a number of different methods, and while some are more effective for some patients, many seem to respond well to microdermabrasion, as it is highly versatile and works on any type or tone of skin. The procedure begins by spraying on these tiny, microcrystals onto the skin’s surface, and using the microdermabrasion device, they are able to slowly exfoliate the skin’s outer layers. Because most acne scars are only superficial, removal of the skin’s outer layers, will drastically reduce the appearance of acne scars. In addition, the procedure also improves blood circulation and helps to deliver oxygen to the skin – as well as to stimulate the growth of new, fresh skin cells. The procedure is highly effective, and the best part is that there is little to no downtime. For more information on acne scar treatment or other procedures contact Aesthetic Solutions NY today.
