Acne and acne scars are not just a problem for teenagers. People of any age can develop acne, and many adults still live with the scars. Over-the-counter treatments are rarely enough. You need skilled care to clear your skin, so what are you waiting for? With the proper help, you can have healthy, smooth skin. There is no reason to live with the social and professional issues that acne and acne scars cause.
At Natural Foundations, we use state-of-the-art devices to treat these skin conditions and help your skin look smooth and clear.
Regenlite Laser Treatment for Acne
The Regenlite Laser is an exceptionally versatile device that stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and helps to gently clear acne by killing bacteria and decreasing inflammation. A single Regenlite treatment on acne has been shown to decrease the average number of acne lesions by 50%. Improvement has been shown to last longer than 12 weeks after a single laser session.
Using low level laser energy, Regenlite emits a unique wavelength of light through a SmartPulse hand piece. The light targets and destroys the damaged skin without harming the healthy skin surrounding it.
Both you and your practitioner will wear special eyewear to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. During your treatment, the hand piece is held close to your skin, but it is not painful. Most patients report a slight warming sensation.
Your treatment should take no longer than 30-45 minutes. For active acne, you will probably require a series of 3 treatments spaced over 3 months.
No recovery period is required after Regenlite. You might experience some slight bruising in the treated areas for a day or two, but otherwise, there are no side effects.
Venus Viva Laser for Acne Scarring
The Venus Viva device can smooth acne scars and diminish their appearance. A “fractional” laser, the Venus Viva targets only the skin that has been damaged, leaving the surrounding skin untouched, allowing for a faster recovery.
Most patients need 3-4 Venus Viva treatments every 2 weeks, although this can vary depending upon the depth and extent of your acne scars.
We apply a numbing cream to your skin a half hour before the Venus Viva Laser device is passed over your skin. The treatment itself takes less than a half hour.
No downtime is required after Venus Viva, but you might experience some redness and discomfort similar to a mild sunburn. This does not usually last for more than a day and a half. Your skin will be more prone to sunburn after your treatment, so please use sunscreen when outdoors. We can recommend skin care products to speed healing.
