Acne scars can make the skin appear flawed and irregular. Fortunately, a few innovative non-surgical med spa technologies are available today to treat acne scars. Pixel acne scar treatment and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are two popular solutions to this problem. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides these treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Pixel Laser Treatment
Pixel laser treatment is gentle light-based skin procedure to rejuvenate facial skin and smooth out flaws such as acne scars. It can restore soft and youthful looking skin without involving any cuts, incisions, or needles. Pixel med spa treatment works by producing thousands of microscopic perforations in the targeted area, while causing no harm to the surrounding tissue.
Pixel laser light gently penetrates the skin in the targeted area with tiny thermal channels to a superficial level. As the micro injuries set off the body’s inner healing mechanism, it causes fresh generation of collagen, subtle volumizing of the skin, and fading away of acne scars.
Laser output through Pixel technology is delivered in a rapid and comfortable manner. With this cosmetic laser technique, acne scars can be a thing of the past. The downtime will usually be shorter than what a patient may go through with deep chemical peels. Following the treatment, the skin may appear to have mild sunburn, which will heal quickly.
Patients often want to know whether Pixel laser procedure can eliminate all the acne scars. But this will vary from one patient to another, depending on the severity of the scar. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.
IPL photofacial is one of the popular treatments to improve the appearance of facial skin by reducing imperfections such as acne scars. As the IPL energy generates gentle heat below the skin in the affected areas, the blood vessels and collage beneath the epidermis begin to constrict. Old skin cells are replaced with new, healthy cells, creating a more even toned appearance. New collagen also helps to fill up and smooth out the acne scars and enlarged pores.
Significant skin enhancement and reduction in acne scars can be achieved with IPL photofacial procedure. The treatment involves little downtime or discomfort and minimal risk of side effects. Each simple and quick in-office treatment session will last for about 20 to 30 minutes. Working people and busy moms can easily fit this treatment into their schedules.
Depending on the condition and extent of acne scars and any other facial skin concerns, the treatment provider will schedule a series of three to five IPL photofacial treatments. Each treatment will be performed at one month intervals. Motykie Medical Spa is equipped with cutting edge Harmony XL AFT IPL laser technology from Alma Lasers.
The med spa also offers another IPL technique called IPL PRO, which combines conventional IPL photofacial treatment with a uniquely formulated chemical peel to achieve more effective and sustainable outcomes.
