Acne can be a frustrating and uncomfortable skin condition, and it can affect people at any age. Even when you’ve got your acne under control, you are often left with unsightly scars that can be difficult to treat. When searching for facial rejuvenation for Vancouver patients with acne scars, here are my top three procedure picks:
IPL – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy delivers pulses of light energy to deeper layers of the skin which stimulates collagen production and targets discoloration and broken blood vessels. We use the Harmony® platform which utilizes Advanced Fluorescent Technology, the next generation of IPL. IPL treatments result in smoother, more evenly pigmented skin that looks brighter and healthier.
Microdermabrasion – This gentle, controlled exfoliation of the skin helps speed cellular turnover, and stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. The combination of abrasion and suction helps remove dirt and debris from the pores, and over time and treatments, improve pigmentation and texture.
Pixel® Fractional Resurfacing – Laser skin resurfacing with the Pixel fractional laser is an excellent way to rejuvenate the surface of the skin without the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional laser resurfacing. Fractional resurfacing penetrates the epidermis and upper dermis, creating tiny holes in the skin surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing response and the growth of new, healthy tissue without ablating the entire surface of the skin.
