If you’ve suffered from acne, you know it can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, and aesthetically unappealing. And it can undermine your confidence. Depending on the severity of your breakouts, it can also cause emotional distress and leave you with scars. Fortunately, with new aesthetic technology advancements, you don’t have to deal with pimples any longer.
Scarlet RF Micro-needling is a technological breakthrough that virtually eliminates acne and its scars. But before we chat about the cure, let’s discuss what causes your acne in the first place.
Why You Get Acne
Your facial skin contains thousands of pores, which get filled with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. When your pores get clogged, you can get whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples.
Acne can form on your face, forehead, upper back, and shoulders, and it can range from mild (clog pores) to severe (painful, pus-filled lumps under your skin). There are effective acne treatments, but acne can be very persistent.
At Allurant, we offer Scarlet Radiofrequency Micro-needling, the most effective acne treatment available.
How RF Microneedelnig Works for Acne
RF micro-needling is a revolutionary treatment that combines radiofrequency with micro-needling to rebuild collagen in your skin. The micro-needles deliver radiofrequency energy to the dermis and destroy acne-causing sebaceous glands.
The process stimulates collagen production, which drastically improves your acne and acne scars and reduces your pores’ size. And the radiofrequency kills acne-causing bacteria. As a bonus, the treatment also reduces your fine lines and wrinkles.
- Don’t I Need Sebaceous Glands?
You have thousands of pores, but only 200-300 of them hold oil and bacteria from sebaceous glands. Since only a minimal amount of the glands receive treatment from the radiofrequency energy, you’ll still have plenty of sebaceous glands to produce oil and moisturize your skin. So, the treatment won’t dry out your skin.
- How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Three treatments one month apart should give you optimal results. But it’s best to have a complimentary consultation and allow Allurant to develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.
- What About Side Effects?
Typically, there are very few side effects with RF Micro-needling. You may have mild redness and swelling the day after your treatment, and your skin might feel a bit dry and tight. But those effects will quickly fade. In rare cases, you could experience mild skin burns or infection, and the treated sebaceous glands can become red and swollen.
Advatx laser: The no-fail no down-time treatment for Acne
Advatx Laser is a cutting-edge combination of two lasers. This amazing treatment accomplishes multiple things that effectively treat acne. One laser wavelength targets and kills the P. Acne bacteria that produce acne. It also treats inflammation, therefore reducing the redness of the acne lesions. The second wavelength naturally stimulates the production of your skin’s collagen improving acne scars.
- What Can I Expect?
With repeat treatments, the active acne lesions subside and the appearance of the scar gets significantly better. The result is smooth even colored skin with fewer and less visible scars
