Acne and acne scar treatments
Injections with hyaluronic acid such as, Restylane™, and Hylaform™ are good treatments for shallow and deep acne scars. These fillers
can be injected into the area of the scar, smoothing depressions. Results are immediately apparent. Patients usually require touch-up
treatments every six months to two years.
CoolTouch II" and ClearLight are non-ablative laser treatments that do not require
anesthesia, as they are not painful and there is no downtime. Most patients receive a series of about five treatments. Depending on the
type of acne scar, improvement can be dramatic. The improvement is gradual and continues to improve even after the treatment stops.
This treatment also helps to keep active acne under control and prevent the growth of new pimples.
Microdermabrasion can be likened to a superficial "skin polishing,, using micro-crystals vacuumed over your skin's surface to remove
damaged skin cells. These gentle treatments can provide noticeable improvement to acne scars. The treatments are progressive and are
applied through a course of weekly sessions.
Chemical Peels use a chemical solution to remove the fine outer layers of the skin. The solutions are available in several strengths,
depending on the degree of peeling desired. Skin will appear smoother and more luminous after each treatment. A series of peels is
recommended to achieve optimum results.
Over time facial skin develops fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips and across the cheeks. Frown lines and smile lines deepen,
persist, and the skin becomes more sallow; its luster and clarity are lost. At Dr. Valentin's clinic, we have a variety of treatments
to restore your skin's lost youth and glow.
