Have you got your acne under control but still have lingering scarring and hyperpigmentation? VIDA is much more than a medical day spa, and we have the tools and expertise to vanquish sings of acne past for good. Led by Medical Director Dr. Glen, who personally trains and supervises the staff, you’ll be in good hands while undertaking your journey to put acne behind you. Acne is a medical condition—but what it leaves behind is cosmetic, and that calls for cosmetic tools that can range from lasers to chemical peels.
One of the best options for treating scarring and hyperpigmentation is broadband light (BBL) therapy. It’s the latest generation of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, sometimes referred to as a photo facial. Clients love BBL because it requires no downtime and you can actually see hyperpigmentation flake away in the days and weeks following your treatment. BBL was designed not to damage surrounding tissue, exclusively targeting problem areas for optimal results. Brown spots get darker first, then disappear. If brown spots are plaguing you from old acne breakouts, BBL can vanquish them—and even help minimize and flatten scarring.
Peel Away Past Acne
Chemical peels work by removing the superficial layer of the skin, revealing clearer skin below the surface and stimulating collagen production for healthier skin. The top layer of skin is often where signs of acne reside, including scars, pits, and hyperpigmentation. Most clients only require a light chemical peel, which means little to no downtime (you might not even notice any visible peeling with these treatments, but the treatment is hard at work).
However, for deeper or more stubborn signs of acne, a medium-depth peel might be suitable. They penetrate deeper and are better suited to treating acne scarring. There is minimal downtime with these peels, and even though there is visible peeling most people feel comfortable continuing their daily tasks after their treatment. Do be careful about getting over-the-counter peels, no matter the depth. Only reputable clinics like medspas can carry the strongest and most effective ingredients—and have the staff with the knowledge for proper application and removal.
Above and Beyond Acne Help
All of these treatments can be complemented with microneedling. This technique is over a century old and works by stimulating the body’s collagen production. A medical-grade handheld device with the ideal width and length of tiny needles is rolled across the skin’s surface. You won’t see results immediately because collagen production takes time. However, within one month of the treatment, you’ll notice that brown spots and scarring are less noticeable. Microneedling is considered both a complementary treatment and a maintenance treatment. Most clients opt for sessions every 4 – 6 weeks to sustain results.
Additionally, customized facials can help tackle a variety of skin woes including old signs of acne. These are facials that are customized for you and not available OTC. Not only are facials a fantastic means of infusing your skin with luxe, hand-picked products, but professional facials can actually address skin concerns like brown spots. These facials are unlike anything you’ve experienced at home, and use the highest-quality products in ideal concentrations to get skin that is clear, radiant, and youthful. Facials are another complementary, maintenance-based solution that you can treat yourself to in regular intervals.
