Acne & Surgical Scars Q & A

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars develop when an inflamed blemish ruptures through your skin’s pore. Your body’s natural response is to form a scab so the tissues underneath can heal. If the wound ends up penetrating the dermis layer of your skin, scarring can occur when the new tissue grows. 

Severe acne can cause lesions, which may leave scarring in the area. Scarring can also come from blockages in your skin due to bacteria, excess oil in your pores, or an ingrown hair follicle. If the damage goes deep enough, the infection can leave a scar.


How are acne scars treated?

To treat acne scars, the team at The Stella Med Spa at Nurture Women’s Health uses the state-of-the-art Potenza radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment. To reduce the appearance of your scarring, this device employs RF energy which breaks down the scar tissue in the affected areas. 

This advanced technology allows your provider to penetrate the deepest layer of your skin with RF energy, which agitates it and causes cells to regenerate. With the regeneration, new elastin begins to form, which makes the pitted, scarred areas of your skin look lighter in color and feel smoother. 

Your treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and you can get back to your daily routine after your appointment. On average, your practitioner recommends three to seven treatments to get the results you want. 

After your skin evaluation, your specialist creates a personalized treatment plan for you.
