Acne & Chicken Pox Scar Removal in Phoenix

Typically discolored and indented because of collagen loss from intense inflammation, acne, and chickenpox scars can be reduced with a series of 4-6 treatments combining the Fractional Picoway Resolve Laser, Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) & advanced PCA Chemical Peels®. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so results can be seen within just a few weeks. One of the most exciting advantages of Delete’s treatment protocol is that it can be used on dark and light skin types.

Chicken Pox and Acne Scar Treatments

The quest for a flawless complexion is a common goal. However, healthy and clear skin is made simple with the experts at Delete. To most, it seems that everyone besides themselves has perfect skin. With a majority of us having struggled with things like occasional breakouts to cystic acne, it is easy to fixate on our flaws. Skin care is a billion dollar industry, yet it simply can not fix the marks left by chicken pox or acne.

How Can Chickenpox Scar Your Skin?

Chickenpox, a highly contagious infection, can reach anyone at any age. With the majority of individuals having suffered through an outbreak at some point in their life, many have the scars as a reminder. Chickenpox, among other symptoms, causes blisters to form all over your skin. Excessive scratching of the irritating blisters damages the skin and leaves open wounds. Your body naturally heals those wounds by growing a thicker skin to protect the area, called “scar tissue.” Oftentimes it presents as indentation and discoloration of the skin, especially visible on your face and neck.

How Can Acne Scar Your Skin?

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. When the hair follicles (or “pores”) on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells, it is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and create infected bumps known as pimples. Red, inflamed pimples and cysts with hard nodes are the leading cause of acne scars.  At Delete, we recommend PCA’s acne control regimen and peels to bring outbreaks under control. Acne scars are typically deep and narrow or “rolling” with a gradual depression. Did you know that nearly 40% of those with acne have some degree of scarring? Many acne scars result from a loss of collagen in the skin. Most acne discoloration fades in 12 months, but the discolored indentations remain. Acne scars are especially visible on the flat cheek area of your face, back of your neck, top of your shoulders, and the flat of your back.

Effective Scar Treatment

Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon has an excellent track record in treating scarring and discoloration from acne and chicken pox by using more than one technique. By combining Picoway Resolve fractional laser resurfacing technology, GentleYAG laser rejuvenating technology, PCA advanced chemical peels, and Collagen Induction Therapy (microneedling), Delete medical experts treat affected areas to decrease discoloration and resurface skin to achieve a natural look. A combination of these four techniques induces a natural skin regeneration process that results in successful treatment and complexion transformations. The results of the Resolve, GentleYAG, CIT or Peel procedure are typically seen in a matter of weeks. As your skin regenerates every 45 days on average, treatments are spaced out by six weeks.

Picoway Resolve is an ultra-short, picosecond laser that reaches below the surface of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elasticity, without breaking the outermost layer of the skin. In clinical studies, 94% of treated areas improved, highly satisfying patients with results.

Results and After Care

The results of the treatments at Delete are overwhelmingly positive, with the majority of people thrilled with the effectiveness of the discoloration removal procedures. The number of treatments needed is determined by your existing skin health and desired results. Complimentary consultations are provided at Delete to design an individual treatment plan for every budget and timeline. Discounts are available on pre-paid packages of three or more treatments.

One of the most important things after treatment is physician grade moisturizer with SPF.  At Delete, we recommend, use, and sell PCA, Glytone, and Avene skin care products. PCA’s Après Peel Hydrating Balm and Silkcoat Balm are two of our favorites. Moisturizing your skin helps heal and reduces the time it takes to regenerate new skin tissue. SPF needs to be used religiously to protect your investment. If there is swelling after laser treatments, ice packs may be used to reduce it with discomfort only lasting a few hours.
