Acne Scar Treatment Begins Here
No one should have to live with acne scarring. Our acne scar treatments begin with a free in-depth skin analysis and consultation. We use a combination of laser and topical products to shut acne down and manage future outbreaks. Once the active acne is under control, we can treat the pitted scars left behind. Our Sciton ProFractional resurfacing technology produces outstanding results in as little as 3 treatments, as seen in the photos above. This affordable technology has revolutionized acne scarring treatments. In the past, CO2 resurfacing was painful, expensive and the recovery time was often weeks. Now, with fractional resurfacing, down time and pain are minimized. Recovery time with this procedure is just days, not weeks. With these innovative Halo Medicine techniques, you can help reduce acne scars and restore radiant skin.
We can also treat acne scars with Bellafill, a dermal filler. This filler, with an indication lasting 5 years of longer, is another method of smoothing the pock and pitted marks left behind by severe acne. To find out if Bellafill is right for you, Call to book a free Halo consultation 847-260-7300.
Treating Acne First
Our ThermaScan acne therapy device is able to destroy bacteria deep in the tissue by using an infrared laser wavelength specifically chosen to treat the acne where it starts—those sensitive sebaceous glands. The laser gently heats up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the sebaceous glands reduces oil production and kills acne-causing bacteria, thereby reducing the number of active and potential acne breakouts. ThermaScan acne therapy is safe and effective on all skin types and tones.
Using a combination of ThermaScan, ProFractional laser resurfacing and routine aesthetic service treatments, we’re able to achieve dramatic results with acne and acne scaring.
What do Acne Treatments feel like?
During your ThermaScan acne treatment, you should experience very little discomfort. Many clients report feeling a warming of the skin or a sensation that feels like a tiny rubber band snap. This varies from patient to patient however, and depends on the depth of the skin treatment. We can use a topical anesthetic cream on extra-sensitive areas, if you wish. During the treatment, your eyes will be protected from the laser light with safety shields. Your procedure will generally last between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type and depth of the procedure performed.
BBL (Broadband Light)
At Halo Medicine Clinic we use the Sciton Broadband Light (BBL) tool for age spot, sun spot, hyperpigmentation, melasma and other brown pigment concerns. The BBL is also used to treat redness, rosacea, spider veins and other red skin concerns.
Similar treatments are referred to as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial, FotoFacial or Photorejuvenation. Other practices offer BBL treatments in packages of 6 and even more but at Halo Medicine Clinic, you will likely notice significant results after just one treatment and for more advanced cases of pigment concerns, up to 3 are recommended. Our skilled physicians administer the BBL treatments themselves, allowing them to give each patient a thorough and deep treatment, tailored to their skin type.
Heating up the dark pigment spots deep within the skin denatures them and the body rejects the cells and they rise to the surface. Better cooling control by our physician equals deeper and better treatment effectiveness. The more effective the treatment…the fewer you need. In essence, our advanced BBL technology saves you money.
