Acne is often associated by scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Scars and pigmentary changes are most often the product of an inflamed lesion, such as a papule, pustule, or cyst and often aggravated by picking at the lesion. The greater the inflammation, the more likely it is to scar and darken in color.
Scars, either traumatic, acne induced or surgical, can be improved dramatically with resurfacing methods. Venus Viva and Microneedling, with possible augmentation by PRP, work magic not only in scar improvement, but also correcting skin texture, pigmentation, tone, lines, wrinkles, pores, thickness and tightness.
For those that don’t want any downtime, a more gentle approach with subtle changes can be obtained by using Laser Genesis.
