What Services Does LUX Offer to treat Acne & Acne Scarring?

BBL Forever Clear

If you have tried many methods to get your acne under control without success, BBL Forever Clear is for you. Finally, those over-the-counter remedies can be a thing of the past. Instead of dealing with potential side effects, you can enjoy clearer skin in just a few short treatments.

Forever Clear BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL device, delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clean, healthy, radiant skin.

Microneedling

Microneedling is an in-office treatment that can help heal depressed acne scars. It’s a quick process that creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, which boosts collagen production and helps reverse depressed acne scars. Microneedling has been proven effective in smoothing out the skin’s texture and is considered safe for all skin tones. It is also safe for thin or sensitive skin.

Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is another treatment for acne scars. It is a premier modular radiofrequency (RF) fractional microneedling treatment that helps with skin remodeling. The device penetrates your subdermal tissue and creates micro-wounds. As the tiny needles puncture your skin, they send waves of RF energy to enhance the healing processes. The combined effects of the microneedling and the RF energy trigger a series of naturally occurring healing processes. Your body reacts, in the same way, any time you have a wound. Cells quickly regenerate and begin forming new tissues, including collagen. Over time, and with a series of treatments, Morpheus8 can reduce the appearance of scars and even eliminate them. 

Diamond Glow Dermalinfusion

Diamond Glow is a skin resurfacing dermal infusion technology that does more than just skim the surface. It uses a precise diamond tip to remove dry damaged skin, high-powered suction to deep clean the skin’s surface and pores, and infuses the skin with SkinMedica serums that are as unique as your skin and can be customized for your skin treatment. You’ll enjoy brighter, fresher, healthier, smoother, clearer, and enjoy results that will last.

Chemical Peels

LUX offers a variety of chemical peels, including SkinMedica, Vitalize, and Rejuveniz. The Vitalize peel begins to improve your skin’s texture and tone after only a single peel. It minimizes fine lines, and creates a healthier, more youthful appearance. Most patients with moderate to severe acne will schedule a series of Vitalize Peels to control future breakouts.

Acne Facials

Our Clear and Fresh facial will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated. This purifying facial involves deep cleaning of clogged pores, exfoliation, extractions, masks, and an application of products customized for your skin type. In just about 30 minutes, you can feel clean, clear and fresh.

Medical Grade Skin Care Products

LUX Med Spa offers advanced medical-grade skin care products. Our team of licensed medical estheticians and cosmetic consultants can help you create a home skin care regimen that enhances your treatment results and keeps your skin looking healthy and clear.

Acne Treatment vs. Acne Scar Treatment

Acne Treatment

Forever Clear BBL is the most effective in-office treatment for ance. It works in a three-step process. First, skin is treated with Blue BBL light to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria at its source, which is deep inside the pores of your skin. Then the skin is treated with yellow BBL light to reduce inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy luminous skin. In the third and final step for added benefit, the skin is treated with Skin Tyte II using infra-red light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process. 

Chemical peels are also popular options for patients with persistent acne issues. Essentially, a chemical peel is when a chemical is applied to the skin, which causes it to blister and later peel. The new skin revealed is often smoother, and clearer. Patients with moderate to severe acne might require several treatments for optimal results. 

If you want the highest in luxury care for your skin, you might want to include a personalized add-on service, like an acne facial from our spa, or schedule follow-up treatments and plan to purchase an at-home skincare regime to help you keep your refreshed skin clear. Our highly trained medical staff can guide you through this process during your free consultation.  

Acne Scar Treatment

Microneedling is an in-office treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries. As these injuries heal, your skin will produce more collagen, and this can help even out skin tone and texture.

Morpheus8 works by penetrating your subdermal tissue to create micro-wounds. As the tiny needles puncture your skin, they send waves of RF energy to enhance the healing processes. The combined effects of the microneedling and the RF energy trigger a series of naturally occurring healing processes. Your body reacts, in the same way, any time you have a wound. Cells quickly regenerate and begin forming new tissues, including collagen. Over time, and with a series of treatments, Morpheus8 can reduce the appearance of scars and even eliminate them. 

Diamond Glow is also an excellent option for skin resurfacing. In just one session, you can improve the texture and appearance of your skin, while also infusing it with the elements it needs to maintain a healthy balance.

Acne Treatment FAQs

Am I a good candidate for Acne Treatment?2021-06-25T05:15:20-04:00

Both men and women can benefit from acne treatment. Anyone who wants healthy, beautiful skin can be an excellent candidate for these services. Forever Clear BBL can be performed on most areas of the body. The face, neck, chest, and back are the most popular areas for treatment. This device is safe and effective for most skin colors, and gentle enough to be used as an acne treatment for sensitive skin. 

What are the benefits of Acne Treatment?2021-06-25T05:16:41-04:00

With Forever Clear BBL, you can expect to see improvements in your skin after only one session. But patients often achieve their optimal results after a series of treatments. A typical treatment plan might involve six to eight sessions performed at one or two-week intervals. 

After your initial series is complete, some patients prefer periodic touch-ups. We will design a treatment plan personalized for your skin and your goals to ensure you receive the best possible care, a schedule that works for you.

What are the target areas for Acne Treatment?2021-06-25T05:17:16-04:00

The face and neck are the most commonly treated areas for acne. However, the beauty of these services is they can be helpful in all areas of the body. Meaning if you desire to treat your chest, shoulders, or back, these treatments will be here for you. Call us today to schedule your free consultation and get started.

What is the recovery like, any side effects?2021-06-25T05:18:55-04:00

Depending on the type of service you’re wanting, the recovery can vary. Clients who receive BBL Forever Clear treatments are designed to require little, if any, downtime. The treated area may be red or slightly flushed immediately following treatment, but this typically fades within a few hours.

Patients can apply their makeup as soon as the treatment is finished to return to their daily routine without delay. As with any procedure, you will need to follow your aftercare instructions until your skin is fully healed. (You can expect your skin to be fully healed about a week after your acne treatment.)

If you consider Morpheus8 to treat your acne scar treatments, some patients experience minor redness and inflammation that usually resolve in less than three days. It’s common for clients to schedule their Morpheus8 sessions on Friday, so their skin can rest and recover over the weekend. In addition, this scheduling allows them to start their Monday with a fresh face.

Chemical peels can require longer downtime, and that will vary depending on the peel and intensity of the products used. Your skin specialist will examine the areas you’d like to have treated and make recommendations for your ideal results. When you book your consultation, we can answer any questions you might have and help you prepare for your treatment.

How many treatments should I get?2021-06-25T05:20:19-04:00

The number of treatments you should plan for depends on your skin condition and your aesthetic goals. If your goal is clear skin, you’ll probably want to start with BBL Forever Clear. A typical treatment course may involve six to eight sessions performed at one or two-week intervals. Call our office to set up your free consultation, and we’ll get you scheduled to start your path to clear skin today. 

If your goals are centered around treating acne scars, we recommend starting with one or two microneedling sessions with Morpheus*. For moderate to severe acne scars, you may need up to three or four treatments. To give your skin adequate time to heal, it’s important to schedule your Morpheus8 appointments at least one month apart. If you have any follow-up questions about these treatments, feel free to call our office and set up your free consultation today.
