Acne Treatment Clinic in Ottawa
What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at some point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous cycle that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is most common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze spots and blemish it because of their unpleasant appearance. Unfortunately, the habit can increase inflammation and, in extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.
Opus Plasma for Acne and Acne Scars
We are proud to introduce Opus Plasma to Ottawa as a solution for active acne and acne scars. Opus is the latest in fractional-based skin resurfacing technologies, a method that involves creating a pattern of microscopic injuries to a fraction of the skin. This stimulates a natural wound-healing response exciting the skin to repair itself.
Opus is our preferred method for dealing with acne and acne scars – it’s stronger than a CO2 laser, with much less downtime.
Laser Treatment for Active Acne
Fotona’s laser treatment can reduce acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. Plus, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
Laser light safely penetrates the skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation. It also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
Laser Treatment for Scar Revisions
Fotona’s laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micro-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
Fractional skin resurfacing is a type of Fotona laser treatment that targets microscopic areas of the skin. The laser light pulses heat columns of skin without damaging untreated areas. The results are a marked improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and other pigment irregularities.
Radiesse for Scars
Dermal fillers are an excellent solution to target scars. Our preferred option is Radiesse – a high quality dermal filler known to last upwards of 8 to 12 months. By injecting into the area of the scar, the skin begins to stretch with the volume from the filler, smoothening the scar and correcting the deformity. It can also help to fill indents and areas with excess volume loss.
