Amongst the most prevalent problems today that many people deal with is acne. It is a bothersome problem that also causes acne scars. Scars from acne can be difficult to remove. They detract from a person's facial attractiveness and may lower their self-confidence. Skinroots provides several methods for treating acne scars. Acne Scar Treatments are tailored to each patient's individual needs.
Typical methods for Acne Scar Treatment include:
1. Co2 fractional Laser – This technique is used to reduce acne scars, also known as C02 laser resurfacing, a great technique for acne scar reduction. Our dermatologist employs a fractional laser resurfacing procedure which ablates the superficial layer of scars and leads to new skin formation which reduces the scar visibility with each session. Healing might take three to ten days. The damaged outer skin layer is gently removed to reveal the fresh and new skin beneath. 2-6 sittings are required in this treatment, depending on the severity of the scars.
2. MNRF Treatment – MNRF treatment is considered one of the most efficient, safest, and excellent ways of treating stubborn acne scars like box scars or rolling scars. MNRF (micro-needling radiofrequency) is a non-ablative way of reducing acne scars on the face. The downtime is very less than 48-72 hours as compared to ablative lasers. We at skinroots use VIVACETM MNRF one of the best MNRF device in the world, endorsed by well-known celebrities, which gives us confidence about its results in acne scars. This technology helps in collagen induction and thereby levelling the scar. 4-6 sessions are needed to get about 50-60% improvement in scar visibility apart from scars it also helps in skin tightening. The procedure is done under topical anaesthesia and is very comfortable for the patients with virtually no downtime. It is safe and especially recommended for Indian skin types.
3. Micro needling - This method, which is also known as collagen induction therapy, involves repeatedly pricking the skin with a small needle to promote the creation of new collagen. This can lessen the visibility of scars. Six sessions with adequate gaps amid them help get the desired results.
4. Dermabrasion - In order to resurface your skin and erase or lessen the depth of scars, this efficient scar removal procedure employs a high-speed brush or another device. It may require 6-12 sessions and skin healing might take up to three weeks.
5. Chemical peel - The skin is exposed to a chemical solution during a chemical peel. Your skin's outermost layer is removed, giving you a smoother, more even look. Approximately six peels are enough to get the desired results.
6. Microdermabrasion - A portable instrument is used by a dermatologist or aesthetician to remove superficial skin during this less time-consuming kind of dermabrasion. There could be a need for 6-12 sessions.
7. Fillers - Certain kinds of deep acne scars can be "filled out" using a material like collagen, hyaluronic acid, or fat. Even a single session can bring desired results from this treatment.
8. Punch excisions - With this kind of skin surgery, each acne scar is excised, or cut out, to eradicate it. Very small Stitches might be used to close the wound.3-6 sittings are enough in this treatment.
Other issues including pigmentation and scarring are linked to acne in addition to merely acne. Even after acne has cured, unsightly scars and markings may remain. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a relatively frequent side effect, refers to the dark areas that remain after the acne has cleared up. It is brought on by an increase in the synthesis of pigment under your skin. These may often be addressed with sophisticated lasers or chemical peels, both of which are relatively risk-free. That is why our doctors watch out for healthy skin healing to lessen pigmentation and scarring. Along with other dos and don'ts, they will provide you advice on the proper diet and other matters so you can stay clear of acne in the future.
