What Is Acne?
Acne and acne scarring are two of the most common skin conditions affecting teens and young adults. Those struggling with oily skin in particular are no strangers to frequent breakouts. When these intense moments of inflammation subside, they can result in uneven texture and severe scarring. Thankfully, treatments don’t have to involve drastic procedures. At Bloom Med Spa, we offer a range of treatment options designed to reduce the appearance of pimples while minimizing any related scarring. The result is smoother skin, even texture, and long-term skin healing.
Why Does Acne and Scarring Occur?
Acne and subsequent scarring occur due to an excessive buildup of harmful bacteria in our pores. Some people, unfortunately, tend to have worse breakouts than others due to the hormonal and environmental factors affecting their skin every day. Additionally, some struggle with having oversized pores that trap more bacteria than usual, leading to an excess of acne as well as other skin concerns, like blackheads. Breakouts and flare ups can be frequent and often lead to long-lasting scars. In these situations, seeking help from an aesthetic specialist is essential.
How Is Acne Treated at Bloom Med Spa?
At Bloom Med Spa, we feel that addressing acne properly is crucial to helping our patients look and feel their best. That is why we are proud to provide several treatments for clearing up pimples and reducing the appearance of scarring.
- Broad Band Light (BBL) – This type of phototherapy kills acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation. It can also treat acne scars, as the BBL breaks apart scar tissue and stimulates new, healthy skin to grow.
- Platelet-Rich Plasma – Our Platelet-rich Plasma treatment uses the power of your blood’s own platelets to reduce pimples and improve signs of scarring.
- Microneedling – Microneedling produces “micro-injuries” to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, resulting in cellular turnover for increased collagen and elastin production.
- Medical Grade Skincare – The acne protocol from ZO Skin Health is designed to effectively treat multiple types of acne..
