Acne Scar Treatments
Lasers - Picosecond and eCO2
Skin resurfacing and stimulation with lasers is the mainstay of scar treatment.
Light and heat energy is used to break down scar tissue and force remodelling of collagen over the course of months to a year.
Downtime varies depending on the lasers and intensities used, and 1 treatment is done every 4-6 weeks for up to 5-8 sessions for optimal results.
Improvement in scars have been shown to continue for up to a year after the last session of laser, so be patient and watch as your face continues to improve over time.
TCA Cross & AGNES Radio-frequency
Certain scars require slightly more precision in management. Scars such as narrow ice-pick scars tend to be difficult to treat with lasers, and the use of chemical peels or radio-frequency needling allows stimulation at the depth of these scars.
A treatment is done every 4 to 6 weeks, and depending on response, can take between 3 to 5 sessions for optimal resurfacing.
This treatment is often followed by lasers to continue with the remodelling of the scar for optimal results.
Deeper scars are often stuck down to the deeper dermis and require manual release with a needle.
This allows levelling off of scars for a smoother contour and a less obvious scar.
Fillers are then placed beneath the scar to prevent it from re-attaching and also to stimulate collage growth for a more permanent improvement.
Nicknamed “The Healer”, Rejuran treatments involve the injection of salmon-derived DNA proteins (Polynucleotides). Its introduction into the skin has two main effects - increased cellular regeneration and increased mechanical support to cells.
Akin to providing cement and bricks to a partially damaged house, regular rejuran use ensures optimal health and structure of the skin.
Results are best seen after 3 consecutive monthly treatments, with maintenance at 3 to 6 monthly intervals.
