While most adults outgrow acne breakouts, unsightly acne scars will remain for a lifetime, if not medically treated and removed or resurfaced. Similarly, surgeries, accidents and injuries can leave life-long red, white or brown scars on the face or body that can undermine one’s self-confidence.
At Aurora Medical Spa we understand how scars can make you feel self conscious about your appearance. That is why we have invested in the latest and most advanced scar reduction and resurfacing treatments available.
PRP microneedling harnesses the regenerative abilities of the patients own body to activate scar healing on a deep cellular level. And the revolutionary Pixel8 system takes microneedling to the next level by adding radiofrequency energy – to further stimulate scar repair. The amazing new Erbium laser also takes scar repair to the next level by removing the outer layer of scarred skin, to reveal the smooth skin beneath.
If you wish to eliminate acne scars, surgical scars, or scarring from an injury or accident, schedule an appointment at our Aurora Medical Spa in East Lansing or Birmingham, MI and we will help you chose the scar reduction treatment that is right for you.
Scar Reduction Treatments
Microneedling with PRP
During microneedling treatments a clinical grade instrument is used to penetrate the skin with hundreds of ultra-fine needles. These needle “pricks” cause microscopic injuries that “trick” the skin into repairing itself by encouraging the body’s natural healing processes. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin – which results in skin that is renewed in plumpness, tone, elasticity – for smoother, younger skin.
When combined with injections of the body’s natural “PRP” the microneedling process accelerates the renewal of the skin at an even more rapid pace – for exceptional scar reduction.
Pixel8 RF Microneedling
PiXel8 is a revolutionary new treatment that combines the regenerative powers of bi-polar radiofrequency energy with microneedling, to offer highly effective skin resurfacing treatments.
The RF thermal energy penetrates and heats the dermis (lower layer of skin) to strengthen and tighten tissue fibers and stimulate dermal collagen production – to smooth skin and repair and replace scar tissue. Topical anesthetic is applied to ensure a painless and comfortable treatment. Patients can expect minimal to almost no downtime, other than some redness that should disappear within 24 hours.
Erbium Laser skin resurfacing reverses, reduces or eliminates the appearance of scars, by removing the outer layer of skin, revealing fresh, smooth skin beneath. Erbium’s precision delivery system can target scars precisely, with more control than ablative chemical peels.
By removing the top, scarred layer of skin, the Erbium laser activates the production of new, fresh, healthy skin cells. The Erbium laser also stimulates the growth of new collagen, repairing scars and improving the skin’s smoothness and elasticity. redness and swelling lasts a couple days & healing will take approximately 1 week with this amazing treatment.
