Dealing with acne scars can be a struggle. If you’re like most people, you may have felt tempted by an acne cream or lotion that promised miraculous results. The truth is, a lot of acne treatments that you can buy at the store – and some you order online – have a chance of making acne scarring worse.
This is because a lot of these treatments include benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. These ingredients can actually dry out your skin. Drier skin leads to irritation which can make breakouts and scars more aggressive. The good news is that there are treatments that can effectively minimize acne scarring.
Here at Turner Medical Arts, we rely on the Potenza™ RF Microneedling device to address this problem. Potenza™ uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling to dig deep below your skin and promote healing from within. Want to learn more? Here are five reasons why Potenza™ is a great choice for treating acne scars.
1. Potenza™ is a Combination of Gold Standards
Potenza™ is a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling treatments. Radiofrequency is a gold standard when it comes to addressing acne scars. This aspect of the device involves passing a current through your skin to create small thermal wounds. These wounds stimulate dermal remodeling and help produce new collagen that softens scar defects.
Similarly, microneedling has been widely regarded as one of the best aesthetic treatments out there. This treatment works by creating thousands of micro-wounds. As your skin heals, it produces fibrin, elastin, and collagen. When combined, these two treatments have an even greater effect on your skin, delivering beautiful results.
2. Potenza™ Treats Multiple Concerns at Once
Are you struggling with more than just acne scars? Don’t worry! Potenza™ is a great option for tackling several skin issues at once. The natural healing triggered by the device makes quick work of wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, enlarged pores, and more.
Along with this, it can also minimize the oil and debris that causes acne breakouts. This means that you can not only treat current scars but prevent future ones from forming too.
3. The Device Works with Any Skin Type
Potenza™ can be used on virtually every skin type and skin tone. This is an important point since some energy-based treatments can’t be used on medium and dark skin tones. Additionally, the device can be used on just about every area of the body.
Just about anyone is a good candidate for this treatment. However, a consultation here at Turner Medical Arts is still recommended before committing to a treatment.
4. Little to No Downtime is Required
Some redness and irritation can be experienced after a Potenza™ session. However, no bed rest is required, and patients can go home right after their treatments. In terms of post-care, wearing SPF 50 sunscreen and not putting on makeup for at least 48 hours is advised.
After your treatment here at Turner Medical Arts, we will provide you with thorough instructions to make sure you get the best results possible.
5. Immediate and Progressive Results!
Potenza™ treatments offer immediate skin rejuvenation results! Your skin will feel refreshed, radiant, and luxurious. Best of all, you should notice even more improvement over the next 4-6 weeks.
The best results from Potenza™ can be seen at around the 12-week mark. The number of sessions you have will play a big role in how soon you see results and how long these results will last.
