Remember Dan Matthews, our patient who shared his story and his success with CO2? Treating acne scars, like any other imperfection, is an ongoing process. Dan has more to share about his journey through treating acne scars with Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics!
DAN MATTHEWS’ ACNE SCAR REVISION JOURNEY
Dan is in his 30s and has suffered from acne scars all his life, and like many people, he admits they’ve affected him mentally, emotionally and physically. “I decided it was time to do more for my acne scars and improve my quality of life,” he said. After trying several antibiotics and creams, Dan knew he needed to see professionals who have experience with aesthetic treatments and the newest methods—so a local plastic surgeon recommended Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics.
While CO2 laser treatments play a huge role in the correction of skin imperfections, it’s not the only beneficial treatment out there. A custom treatment plan was created for Dan to help him combat his acne scars and create what Dan calls a “better-looking version of himself.” The treatment regimen Dan received at Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics is listed below.
A COMPREHENSIVE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT PLAN
While these are great for relaxation, skin exfoliation and removing layers of dead surface, they’re also extremely beneficial in renewing skin that suffers from acne and scars.
“They give me amazing acne facials by a medical esthetician and have topical prescriptions custom-tailored to go along with my treatment. It truly is a full-service practice.”
Vbeam and IPL
Vbeam Perfecta is a pulsed dye laser treatment that is safe and effective for several skin imperfections—on all skin types. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a photofacial designed to destroy targeted tissue without damaging the surrounding skin.
“These treatments made my skin look better and were great for redness, veins and helped control oil production by closing my pores.”
Collagen P.I.N. uses fine needles to trigger your skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. This mildly invasive treatment allows serums and creams to be absorbed more effectively.
“Donna has a great microneedling machine with special stem cells that create new collagen and refurbish the skin. Very little downtime and pain.”
CO2 and Fraxel Laser Resurfacing
CO2RE resurfacing provides you with younger-looking skin, while Fraxel laser therapy treats a wide range of conditions with laser technology—including Actinic Keratosis (AK), a pre-cancerous skin condition.
“It is tolerable and done with the greatest of care and attention. Downtime is a week or so and it made a dramatic change in my skin.”
This laser uses energy to smooth your skin, improving tone and texture while stimulating the production of collagen and healthy skin cells. Sublative works on all skin types!
“Great in helping me get rid of large pores and shallow indentations. Barely any pain—just some warmth.”
Facial fillers are a popular anti-aging treatment, adding fullness to the skin and reducing wrinkles. However, they can be used for more than achieving a younger appearance—also being used for areas the laser does not address.
“Donna plans to do them in the future for my indentations and lowered areas of the skin, raising scars and giving me a more even texture.”
While Dan opted for a comprehensive approach including various skincare treatments, patients have the ability to create a plan that’s best for them. Even with a few treatments, he ensures you will look better, feel better and be back for more to maintain your results.
Dan said that after each treatment, he knew there was hope and assurance that they were working together towards his goal of better skin, leading to a higher self-esteem and quality of life. He is glad he chose Donna to lead him through his journey, and has “seen much improvement and is excited about our final outcome.”
Dan would recommend Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics to anyone who wants a better version of themselves—whether you need upkeep or a full makeover—because who doesn’t want to look younger, healthier and more attractive as they age? After a few cosmetic procedures, he knew that he would be coming back to continue looking his best, as it is an ongoing process.
