For some people, acne is a minor nuisance that comes and goes, but for others, it can leave significant scars. Fortunately, the appearance of acne scars can be significantly reduced using INTRACel’s two-pronged approach of microneedling and RF energy.
Acne occurs when excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria build up and clog the pores in your skin, leading to a bright red bump or blemish. Often, acne goes away on its own, but sometimes, this debris can break through the wall of the pore and spill out into the surrounding tissue.
Your lymphatic system removes the debris and your skin produces collagen to heal itself. But sometimes, these repairs are flawed and become permanent scars. There are two types of acne scars:
- Hypertrophic or keloid scarring: This is a bump that rises above the surrounding skin. It occurs when your body produces too much collagen to repair the skin after an acne outbreak.
- Atrophic or depressed scarring: This is a depression that dips below the surrounding skin. It occurs when your body produces too little collagen, resulting in a loss of tissue.
Acne scars can negatively affect your confidence. You may feel that you have to cover up certain areas of your body like your shoulders, back, and forehead to hide severe scarring.
But acne scars don’t have to stick with you for life. INTRACel can significantly reduce or eliminate them. Both RF energy and microneedling stimulate the production of collagen in different ways to rebuild damaged portions of skin. Acne scars happen when your skin doesn’t repair itself quite right, so essentially, this procedure encourages a do-over: another round of collagen production to shrink or fill in the scar.
As with most skin treatments, repeated sessions of INTRACel spread out over several weeks tend to strengthen your results. Your skin continues to improve for four to six months, with smaller pores and greater elasticity.
If you struggle with permanent acne scars, contact us to learn how INTRACel can significantly reduce or eliminate those scars, and improve the quality of your skin along the way.
So I’ve been on hormone therapy for a few years and but hated having to constantly inject myself every 2 weeks and the hormone fluctuations were rough sometimes. I decided to look around from pellet therapy and found Dr. Mack provided what I was looking for. When I finally got a chance to meet her, she was so sweet and really attentive, not only that, she noticed my hypothyroidism from my blood test (something I totally forgot to ask her about when I was there!)
I started my journey to better health in January of 2015. Since then I’ve lost 60 pounds and feel great. As well, I’ve started working with their functional medicine doctor, Dr. Mack. She is compassionate, kind and oh so knowledgeable. Every step of the way I’ve been monitored physically and nutritionally… I cannot express it enough that if you are looking for a journey to better health this is definitely the place you should start!
