Aesthetic treatments to remove acne scars
Dermabrasion involves the removal of the top layer of the skin with crystal-tipped wand by running it over the skin surface. Local anesthesia is given to the facial skin to make you comfortable during the treatment. Your skin will be healed within several weeks. Once your face is healed completely, your acne scars will fade away. It works great for moderate acne scars, but if you have severe pits, this treatment will be fruitless.
- Chemical Peel
Firstly, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. This solution blisters the skin and it peels off after a few days. The new skin replaces the old skin. The exfoliation involved in it minimizes the appearence of acne scars. It not only removes the scane but also smoothes the skin and heals the pigmentation.
- Laser Resurfacing
It burns off the outer layer of the skin to trigger the growth of new tissue. In this treatment too, local anesthesia is given to the patients. It leads to open wounds. Once the wonds are healed, you will get less scarred, smooth skin. However, several sessions are required to completely vanish the scars. The sessions are generally spaced about two months to allow enough healing time.
- RF Micro-Needling
RF Microneedling uses the radio frequency to kill the acne. The length of the needle is selected according to the scars depth. It easily penetrates the outer layer of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Scars are treated separately. The dermatologist stretches the skin slightly so as to treat the base of the scar properly. The formation of small pinpoint bleeders on the scar denotes that the treatment is complete. New capillaries are formed and new skin cells are produced.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU is the latest technique to treat the acne, although it is mainly used for face-lifting. HIFU goes deep inside the skin to heat the targeted structural tissues and muscles to increase the collagen production. It creates spaced wound which speeds up the healing process. Once healed, the acne scars will disappear.
- Filler Injections
Fillers are gel-like stuff which is injected into the scars to make them smooth. Boxcar, rolling, and ice pick scars are effectively treated with dermal fillers.The dermal fillers smoothes the scars and ultimately blend them with your normal skin.
Among the treatments mentioned above, the two most effective treatments are RF Micro-needling and HIFU. These treatments are absolutely safe for all skin types and give you a long-lasting effect.
So, try it and get a glowing, spotless skin.
