Can Skin Rejuvenation Help Acne Scars?

Dealing with acne at any age can be embarrassing. White heads, black heads, and related redness and scarring can greatly impact even the most confident person’s self-esteem. For people living with severe skin issues like cystic acne, the struggle seems to never end. Popping pimples may be momentarily satisfying, but it often causes long-term damage including discoloration and scars. These skin issues can last for years, even after acne has cleared. If you are living with acne scars that affect your daily life, skin rejuvenation in West Palm Beach could be your solution. Here’s how Beaute Therapies can help. 

Skin Damage Caused by Acne 

To understand the benefits of skin rejuvenation treatment, you need to understand how acne can cause long-term skin damage. Beyond the obvious damage caused by picking, scratching, or popping zits, acne itself can lead to skin issues. Acne is most often caused by pore-clogging debris such as dead skin cells, dirt, and make up. These particles cause build up in your skin’s natural oils, leading to blemishes.  

The type of blemishes you experience can dictate the potential damage caused to your skin. Surface pimples can easily be popped, causing the aforementioned irritation. These open sores can also become infected, leading to more acne developing or skin infections.  

Pimples which form under the skin can be painful to the touch and damage the skin due to a build-up of pressure. While it is best to allow these blemishes to come to the surface naturally, the temptation to dig at them and force the contents to the surface and out of your skin can lead to pore collapse, causing the formation of pit marks. Just like other forms of acne, this can lead to infection and the worsening of your breakout.  

Cystic acne is a moderate to severe skin condition caused by clogged pores which may become infected or form cysts. It may also be caused by hormonal changes, which is why some teens continue to struggle despite use of topical treatments. Cystic acne may require treatment by a dermatologist who can prescribe both topical ointments and prescription antibiotics to address the issue. 

How Skin Rejuvenation in West Palm Beach Can Help Acne Scars 

Skin rejuvenation is not an acne treatment. This procedure should not be performed on skin experiencing a current breakout. It can be used to help minimize or eliminate the appearance of acne marks including: 

  • Discoloration 

  • Acne scars 

  • Collapsed pores 

  • Overall skin texture 

At Beaute Therapies, your skin rejuvenation in West Palm Beach begins with a consultation. During this time, our skin care specialists will assess your skin’s current condition and help you understand what to expect. It’s important to recognize that skin rejuvenation is not intended as a one-and-done treatment. Instead, it improves your skin’s appearance over time and may require more than one treatment. 

Your skin rejuvenation options at Beaute Therapies include: 

Laser Treatment which can reduce the appearance of scars and discoloration. 

Skin Peel Facials which remove old, dead layers of skin and reveals smoother, softer, new skin. 

Spa Facials which use the best available skin care products to cleanse, exfoliate, and rebalance skin.
