Can I have a microneedling procedure if I have active acne?
Microneedling is used to smooth acne scars and fine lines. Microneedling cannot be performed if you have an active breakout. Other procedures such as skin purifying, extractions, and acne facials, can be performed so your skin recovers prior to undergoing a microneedling treatment.
What is the extraction process?
A facial extraction works to clear blocked pores. If this is your first acne facial procedure, you may need several extractions. When your pores and skin are clean and fresh, it is less likely that blemishes will develop.
What is rosacea therapy?
At Bella Vi, our specialists use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy to treat rosacea. This involves applying gentle light pulses to your skin to address the redness and other areas of uneven skin pigmentation. The procedure is not painful. All you will feel is a gentle snapping sensation against your skin. It is safe – and it works.
What will my skin look like after microdermabrasion?
After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin may be slightly sensitive and feel tight. The areas treated may have a pinkish glow, which fades within 24 hours. Microdermabrasion does not require anesthetic or long recovery time. The treatment reveals fresh, healthy skin, and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
