Acne Scars & Stretch Marks
La Belle Vie employs multiple strategies to dramatically improve color, texture, tone and laxity of striae (stretch marks) and other scars. From minimally invasive to more aggressive treatments, La Belle Vie understands what it is like to have acne scars and other types of scars.
The Micro-needling Pen is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles that puncture the skin. This process of controlled skin injury results in production of new collagen and elastin. The overall effects are improvement in skin texture, wrinkles, pore size, and reduction of scars (including acne scars). Depending on the severity of the scarring, multiple treatments may be necessary.
Moderate to Severe Scarring
The New Intensif by EndyMed is used to treat acne scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and other conditions that require deep dermal heating. The Intensif applies an array of micro-diameter needles to safely and effectively deliver focused RF energy deep into the dermis, providing a revolutionary collagen remodeling solution for acne scar treatment, deep wrinkle reduction, with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Patients will experience minimal downtime post treatment and can see mild redness which can last up to one day post treatment. To treat fines lines and texture, 1-3 treatments are recommended and 3-5 treatments are needed for acne scarring, 4-6 weeks apart.
Most Severe Scarring
Skin Resurfacing with the laser offers a more aggressive approach to treating scarring. You will see dramatic improvement in skin tone and texture. The CO2 laser penetrates the skin with thermal microchannels, creating a targeted ablative and thermal effect – without disturbing the surrounding tissue. These micro-injury sites enhance the results and jumpstart the healing process by stimulating collagen strengthening and neo collagenesis.
This procedure has social downtime of 4-7 days.
