Acne scars result when acne breakouts penetrate the deeper section of the skin and the underlying tissues. The body tries to repair the damage thereby leaving a scar. Collagen is produced by the body when it tries to heal the acne. Little or large amount of collagen produced for healing acne results to scar formation.
The type of scar is related to the type of collagen form.
- Depressed acne scars: Depressions or pits are formed as a result of little collagen production.
- Raised acne scars: Too much production of collagen to heal acne will lead to the formation of raised acne scars. This type of acne scars is very common among the people of African Americans, Asians, and the Hispanics.
Treatments of Acne Scars?
At Premier Laser & Skin Clinic, our experienced skin specialists can give you a safe and effective treatment of acne scars. We will examine your skin to identify causes and symptoms of acne scars during a consultation. Then we will create a program for you based on the type of your scar and the part of the body that the scar is before creating this program. The following treatments can be used alone or combined to treat acne scars:
The INFINI™ has been clinically proven to increase collagen production in the skin helping to reduce acne scars and resurface the skin through 3D volumisation, for a smoother more refined you. INFINI™ is a new three-dimensional radio-frequency (RF) and micro-needling treatment which creates fractional micro-holes in the skin and induces precisely localised radio frequency emission from the needle tips, thereby precisely stimulating collagen and elastin production in the dermis without potential thermal damage in the epidermis.
The DermapenTM Skin Needling System has been proven to stimulate collagen production, enhancing the skins ability to repair itself in areas that may not be looking their best. The procedure takes the concept of micro skin needling, a form of collagen induction therapy, to a new level, by delivering multiple, vertical needles rapidly to a localised area of the skin. The procedure leads to increased collagen production, which effectively reduces acne scars and renews tired looking skin.
Sublative technology is neither laser nor light based. Instead, this one-of-a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radio-frequency directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. This fractional delivery of Radio Frequency energy causes micro-epidermal injuries with wider spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix. Acne scars and superficial skin discolouration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
