If you have acne scars, you know how embarrassing and frustrating they can be. Have you tried different treatments to get rid of them, and nothing seems to work? You may have heard of VI Peel and wondered: Does VI Peel treat acne scars?
At WIFH, we definitely recommend VIiPeel for acne scars. However, keep in mind that we cannot treat acne scars with VI Peel until there is no active acne. If active acne persists, we will need to first treat and maintain acne-free skin before addressing the acne scars with VI Peel. We also recommend microneedling after your VI Peel to further repair the texture of the skin.
Dealing with Active Acne
Before we can address acne scars we need to address the acne. If a patient still has active acne then we would start off with a VI Peel Purify. This peel clears out dead cells to open pores, kills acnes bacteria, as well as soothes inflammation and redness. To keep the skin healthy and prevent future breakouts, it is vital that patients use medical grade skincare products at home as well. For example, Obagi’s Clenziderm system works miracles for acne prone skin.
After Acne is Clear
Now that the acne is cleared up, we can address the scars. Acne scars will sometimes fade over time on their own, but that process can often feel like it takes forever. The VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus will help eliminate acne scars and skin damage, leaving your skin smooth and clear.
The peel is specifically formulated to help smooth skin texture and repair acne scars, brighten dark areas left after an acne scar, and also soothe inflammation and redness. It helps to stimulate collagen production plumping the depressed, pitted skin. You will need a series of peels to get the best results.
Additional and Supplemental Treatments
For deeper acne scarring, we often recommend microneedling to be done four weeks post-VI Peel to further repair the texture of the skin. Microneedling stimulates natural collagen production, which will not only plump the texture of the skin but will also give it a healthy and radiant glow. Depending on the severity of the scars, we recommend four to eight treatments of microneedling spaced four weeks apart to achieve the best results.
