What can Sona do for my acne scars?
Skin resurfacing is a treatment that works to heal acne scars and create a smoother, more even skin texture. At the Houston Northwest Sona, we use the Pixel laser, a highly effective skin resurfacing technology with a long history of efficacy. Along with laser treatments, we also offer chemical peels as an additional treatment for acne scars. A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of your skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin to exfoliate the dead skin cells and eventually peel off, revealing the fresh, new skin underneath. Chemical peels help safely and effectively exfoliate the dead skin that accumulates, so you are left with much softer and healthier, new skin underneath.
Innovative Technology to Treat Acne Scars
So, how does the Pixel laser treatment work? The laser emits very thin beams of infrared light that stimulate the body’s collagen production and the production of new, healthy skin cells. Unlike other skin resurfacing technologies, only a portion of the skin is treated while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. Because the surround skin is left untouched, the skin heals much faster and down time is minimal. Advantages of the Pixel treatment at Sona of Houston Northwest include: more targeted treatment of specific areas of the face and body, uses less heat than the Fraxel CO2 laser, offering less risk and fewer temporary side effects, and no physical downtime and minimal social downtime. The Pixel laser can be used to treat skin texture and scarring issues on many areas, such as your face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs.
