Acne can scar more than a person’s skin. It can cause self-esteem issues, and even make socializing and relationships more difficult. When you’re ready to address the scarring, MedSpa at ChristiMD believes your best acne scar treatment in Houston is RF microneedling.
Read on to understand why we think the SECRET™ RF Pro system for RF microneedling will make you love your skin again.
What makes acne scarring different?
We frequently see these topical effects of acne outbreaks:
- Small red bumps (papules)
- Pimples/pustules (red bumps with white or yellow pus)
- Reddened skin around the outbreak
- Skin crusting on/around the bumps
These acne issues can cause some scarring. However, the real, long-lasting and skin-altering scarring starts underneath the skin.
3 Types of Acne Scars
During an acne outbreak, you may see any or all of the topical effects. Less apparent is the inflammation occurring underneath the skin. This inflammation can lead to deeper dermal trauma.
The scars that form depend on how your body reacts to the inflammation and the epidermal effects, and to any treatment (or mistreatment, such as picking at the bumps) given during the outbreak.
The 3 types of acne scarring include:
- Atrophic. Scars that indent the skin’s surface.
- Hypertrophic. Scars which lift above the general skin level.
- Hyperpigmentation. The affected skin darkens and remains that way.
Choosing the best acne scar treatment
At ChristiMD Medical Spa, we have several treatments and products that perform excellently for treating acne scars, such as:
Medical grade serums and topical products
But we considered which treatment could achieve the most per session for addressing the scarring itself, and our premier choice is: RF Microneedling.
RF Microneedling for acne scars
We utilize the SECRET™ RF Pro system for our radio frequency microneedling treatments. SECRET™ RF Pro allows us to truly customize your treatment to match your goals, your skin type, and your sensitivities.
The microneedling process—also known as “collagen induction therapy”—creates precise, microscopic punctures in your treatment area skin. These micro-injuries don’t scar; instead they trigger your body to create more collagen and elastin. This natural repair process is called “dermal remodeling.”
The collagen fibers help to make the enlarged pores look smaller, lift up indentations, and make your skin look smoother.
What does the RF part do for my acne scars?
As the SECRET™ RF Pro system microneedles the skin, it simultaneously delivers RF (radio frequency) energy through the needs and more deeply into the skin.
That RF energy heats the underlying layers, constricting and tightening the skin, making the scarring less significant. The RF energy also stimulates collagen and elastin production more deeply, so that your results arrive more quickly and more dramatically.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing for all types of acne scarring.
And now we reach the “all for one” part of the treatment. The SECRET™ RF Pro final step smooths and brightens your skin as it enhances both tone and texture. It also addresses hyperpigmentation, destroying the undesired pigment so that your body can flush it out. Plus, the CO2 laser resurfacing step promotes collagen regeneration too!
This “SECRET” is customizable for your goals.
You can add serums and products to the microneedling treatment process for truly personalized care. Ask your ChristiMD specialist about how you can make SECRET™ RF Pro your very own best acne scar treatment in Houston.
