Don’t let facial scars affect your self-confidence. If you have embarrassing acne scars on your face, chest, shoulders, and arms, they can be dramatically improved at Bella Vi. Acne scars can leave your skin surface looking uneven, pitted, or rough. With our custom scar treatment in Evansville, we can help you regain your confidence and experience a better quality of life.
What is the Bella Vi scar treatment?
At Bella Vi, our optimized micro-needling with PRP can reduce the appearance of scars by as much as 100 percent. This is because we use a specially designed device comprised of ultra-fine needles that create micro-injuries in the skin to trigger healing. Each time a needle punctures your skin it stimulates the production of collagen to fill the microscopic wounds, enhancing your skin’s appearance. With PRP applied after microneedling, healing is more thorough, due to the growth factors within the PRP that send a signal to the body to regenerate.
Why is PRP used in this treatment?
PRP is extracted from a blood sample. It is rich in concentrated blood serum and growth factors that promote your skin’s healing to increase natural collagen production, smoothing scar tissue. The growth factors also stimulate the production of special healing cells in your skin for more even skin tone.
Scar treatment that works: Visible results.
Usually, our clients begin to see significant improvement within two or three months after treatment. The results last up to a year but can vary, based on the current condition of your skin, your skin type, and your age. We recommend that you get a follow-up maintenance treatment every six to twelve months to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.
How will I look after the procedure?
Some people notice minor swelling and redness, which has the appearance of mild sunburn. This usually resolves within 24 to 48 hours. You may also experience slight bruising and pinpoint bleeding in the treatment areas. Within a week or two, your skin will have a noticeably smoother look and have a fresh radiant appearance. The results will continue to improve over two or three months.
Is there any downtime?
You will experience temporary inflammation of the skin which resolves within a few hours. Your skin may retain a slightly pink look for up to two days after treatment. Taking a hyaluronic acid supplement after the treatment can help to reduce inflammation.
What is the aftercare treatment?
After micro-needling scar treatment, you should:
Avoid sun exposure for a week or longer
Rinse your face with a gentle cleanser each morning and night
Can microneedling be performed on any skin color?
This type of microneedling procedure is safe to perform on all skin types and does not pose a risk of causing hyperpigmentation.
What other conditions can microneedling treat?
Micro-needling with PRP can also be used to improve fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, sagging skin, uneven skin texture, and stretch marks.
