The 6 Best Skin Treatments on the Market

Skin treatments

There are many skin treatments on the market to help with a wide variety of issues. Many people prefer to use at-home remedies and solutions but we believe these treatments are known to have better results. The goal is to improve your confidence while reducing the appearance of any skin issues that may be bothering you.

There are many skin treatments to help reduce the appearance of acne scars. While it is not necessary to receive these treatments, they will help your acne scarring become less noticeable. With the fading of your acne scars, confidence and self-esteem will be gained.

Best Skin Treatments for Acne Scars

There are a couple of different skin treatments for acne scarring to choose from. The treatment you choose depends on how long you want the treatment to last, how long the recovery time is, and what you are trying to improve.

Skin treatments for acne scars


Microneedling is a procedure where a skin care expert will help unlock your skin’s full potential. It helps to revitalize and refresh your skin to help reduce the appearance of aging.

Our treatment uses the Skin Pen II which creates tiny channels in the skin tricking your body into sending revitalized collagen to the area. This quickly restores the skin and brings a large quantity of essential nutrients to that area. The end result is fresh collagen and more youthful elasticity in the skin.

We can perform this procedure on all types of skin with problems ranging from acne scars to loose skin. Ideal candidates are at least 22 years of age and should avoid tanning or excessive sun exposure for two weeks leading up to the procedure.

Laser Therapy

Laser skin treatments for acne work by targeting a specific area with a light beam of a certain energy level. The energized light beam stimulates tissue and triggers it to repair itself. After doing laser therapy multiple times, the pigment of the acne scars will fade to look more like your natural skin tone.

Sometimes, laser therapy can fully remove acne scarring. However, it sometimes just reduces the appearance of the scars without actually removing them. The results of laser therapy vary depending on the person and how their body reacts to it.

After laser therapy is completed, the affected area will likely become red, swollen, and sore for up to a couple of days following the procedure. The side effects are temporary and will resolve within a few days.

Best Skin Treatments for Flawless Skin

To achieve the appearance of flawless skin, there are a couple of different ways to make this happen.


Microdermabrasion is similar to dermabrasion but is not as intense. A licensed skin care specialist will need to perform this procedure. They will perform this by using a device to rub fine crystals into your skin, which usually will take about 30 minutes. For long-lasting results, microdermabrasions need to be performed somewhere between 5 and 10 times.

This procedure can cause some redness and swelling immediately after being performed, but it should clear up in about a week. The results from microdermabrasions can last for up to 30 days but will last longer if you go for more than one treatment. This treatment can also improve skin tone, sunspots, and the complexion of your skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels contain non toxic chemicals, like phenol, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid. Chemical peels containing these acids are performed to approve the appearance of your skin, especially when there is acne scarring.

They can also be used to treat wrinkles, dark freckles, acne spots, sun spots, and skin tone. A dermatologist will have to perform chemical peels, and they can range from mild to deep.

A chemical solution will be applied to your skin, which will cause the skin to peel off. After the top layer of skin peels off, the skin underneath will look younger, brighter, and even-toned.

Talk to your skin care professional to discuss any risks or side effects that come with a chemical peel, and find out which treatment is best for your skin type.

These risks include skin pigmentation changes and possible scarring. Talking with a licensed aesthetician before you are set on this skin treatment will allow you to address these concerns and be sure you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Best Skin Treatments for Wrinkles

Wrinkling is a natural sign of aging, but sometimes it lowers self-esteem. These are the best skin treatments to help diminish wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injections of proteins, collagen, or acid that fills out or plumps a specific area of your skin. Dermal fillers are also referred to as soft-tissue fillers. Common dermal fillers are Bellafill, Juvederm, and Restylane.

The fillers are injected directly into the skin and produce immediate, but temporary, results. Dermal fillers are sometimes used solely for cosmetic purposes, like making lips appear to be fuller but they’re also used for reducing the appearance of wrinkles by making the skin look tighter.

They can be injected in multiple places, like your cheeks, lips, or around your eyes. You can certainly use dermal fillers for acne scars, but they won’t last forever. You will need to regularly keep up with these injections every year.


Botox is a procedure where chemical botulinum is injected into the muscles in your face. Botox is typically used to improve wrinkles or fine lines in your face. Your muscles become temporarily relaxed when injected with Botox. This allows the wrinkles in your face to soften and improve their looks.

Botox is commonly injected around your eyes, neck, and frown lines. There are some side effects that come along with using Botox, such as slight bruising around the injection site, but side effects are minimal and the results are worth it!

The results from this procedure usually last somewhere between 3 and 6 months, so it is recommended to regularly see your nurse injector to keep up with the Botox injections.
