Acne is a condition that does not discriminate and can lean to to stress, anxiety and general insecurities. Unfortunately acne can also cause scarring, which appear as small indentations in the skin. There is hope however, thanks to modern technologies.
At Skin Technique, we have a variety of treatments to help with acne as well as the scars that can be left as a result of having acne.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure, also known as collagen induction therapy and percutaneous collagen injection. Using precise needles, the device stimulates the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath.
Intensif® (Microneedling with Radio Frequency)
Our Intensif® treatment uses precise needles to stimulate the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath. When we combine microneedling with RF, the added benefit of extra collagen stimulation in addition to the microneedling can give remarkable results.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Also known as the Vampire Facial, the PRP treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses a patient’s own blood to repair and reconstruct problem areas.
Platelets are the component of our blood that contain multiple growth factors and nutrients. When administered to skin, our own enriched platelets can rejuvenate the skin and target problem areas like acne scars, wrinkles, and volume loss.
The PRP treatment is a game-changer when it comes to achieving desired results. We often use PRP in combination with a variety of treatments at our Vancouver clinic.
