Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, works by creating thousands of little micro-channels deep into the skin’s layers. These controlled channels tell your body to stimulate its natural healing process that repairs and makes new collagen. Microneedling is exclusively used for acne scarring and cannot be used for active acne. Microneedling is a highly effective treatment when scars are indented or have created craters or pits, but aren’t hyperpigmented. Microneedling is also highly effective when additives are introduced into the skin treatment which super charges the results.
Medium-Depth Chemical Peels
Medium-depth chemical peels work because they penetrate deep into the skin, removing the top layers of scarred tissue and allowing youthful, new, smooth, and even skin to regenerate in its place. Be careful of over the counter “peels,” since these can actually cause acne flare-ups. VIDA chemical peels are safe, effective, and expertly applied for quality results you can trust.
Lighter Chemical Peels / Microdermabrasion Combo
We offer the Microderm-Peel which combines a chemical peel with a microdermabrasion for great results using the DiamondTome diamond tip. The treatment removes damaged, dead cells from the skin’s surface with no irritation. It’s followed by a chemical peel, and the microdermabrasion allows for a deeper penetration. Another option is the PCA Peel, which is a minimally-invasive chemical peel that improves and clears the skin. Both chemical peels are suitable for all types of skin, but the PCA Peel is especially effective at encouraging skin cells to turnover, improving the skin’s function as old skin cells are exfoliated and replaced by fresh, new cells.
