Skin Care Q&A

What can I do to treat acne scarring?

Acne can not only make life miserable while you’re living with breakouts, but it can also leave lasting reminders in the form of acne scarring. Fortunately, there are advanced treatments that can help. 

Acne develops when your pores become clogged with oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and other debris. As the pore is stretched, a break can occur in the follicle wall. If infected material is able to reach nearby tissue, the lesions can deepen. 

Your skin responds by creating new collagen fibers. This builds scar tissue, which changes the look and feel of your skin. 

The Fraxel® 1550 restore laser is a non-ablative treatment option that works by creating tiny channels deep in the surface of your skin. Your body creates new collagen to address these perceived injuries, which serves to smooth and tighten skin, making acne scarring less noticeable. 

Pixel® RF fractional skin resurfacing laser uses a longer wavelength than Fraxel treatments, which allows Pixel to penetrate more deeply into the layers of your skin. Treatments prompt the production of new collagen and elastin to firm and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of acne. 

What are skin tags, and how are they treated?

Skin tags are small, soft bits of skin that sit atop a slender stalk. They are usually the same color as the rest of your skin, but can sometimes be darker. 

Skin tags are common, and often develop in areas where your skin rubs together or against clothing. They are harmless, but can be aesthetically displeasing. 

The Pixel laser can remove skin tags and moles. Treatments can also improve the overall look and feel of your skin, making it a worthy investment. Skin tags can also be removed through a treatment called electrocautery.

Electrocautery works by using electrical current to heat a small blade or needle. The blade or needle is then applied to the base of the skin tag, and cuts through that tissue. This approach minimizes bleeding, as the wound is immediately cauterized by the heat. 

How do I know which skin care treatment is right for me? 

Choice is a wonderful thing, but too many options can feel overwhelming. When you entrust the team at Magnolia Skin Care Clinic with your care, you can rest assured you are in the best of hands. 

Your practitioner will discuss the pros and cons of various options, giving you time to ask questions or express concerns. You’ll receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your treatment path.
