We, as a society, place a lot of value in our appearance. We often judge people on their looks and hence, feel conscious about our self-image. Acne scars are one thing that causes a lot of grief to many people. They are stubborn and refuse to away, which makes some people feel anxious about their looks. Thanks to advancement in cosmetology, one can now opt for advanced acne scar treatment through various facial rejuvenation techniques. At Saraswat Hospital in Agra, we have AAAM-certified cosmetology experts who offer personalised treatment options for and acne and other skin problems.
Below, we look at some popular facial rejuvenation treatments that are effective in fighting acne.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional CO2 Laser method is an effective acne scar treatment. Laser beams are targeted on the intended part of the skin to create small puncture wounds and damage the upper layer of the skin. This triggers the body to produce a higher level of collagen, which helps in healing the tiny wounds faster. A new layer of skin is formed in its place, which is known as skin resurfacing. This new layer of skin has visibly reduced acne marks. The patient gets brighter, younger-looking, and a radiant skin. This treatment also works well for signs of ageing and pigmentation marks.
When acne happens, deep fibrous bands are formed between the acne scar and its underlying skin tissues. In the subcision method, a specialised needle is inserted into the skin to break down the acne scar’s fibrous bands. This treatment is effective in dealing with depressed acne scars. The insertion of the needle also kickstarts the process of collagen production, which further helps in reducing the acne scars.
A handheld device like a derma roller is used for this particular method. The derma roller is applied to the face in long straight motions which creates a pathway of tiny wounds on the skin. This causes the body to produce collagen and elastin at a much faster rate, helping the wounds to heal faster. New skin resurfaces in the process. This acne scar treatment is useful for mild acne scars.
This can help deal with severe acne scarring. A rapidly rotating device such as a high-speed brush is used to remove the uppermost layer of the skin. In the process, the surface-level scars get completely eliminated and the deeper scars become less visible. The body also produces more collagen, which results in new layer of skin resurfacing. This treatment can be used for all types of scarring inclyding hyperpigmentation.
In this method, purified fruit acids or synthesized chemical solutions are applied on the affected area of the skin. The solution is targeted on the concerned scar tissue with the intention of removing the upper layers of the skin. Applying the chemical peel stimulates more production of collagen in the body and promotes cell renewal to form new and more brightened skin. This method visibly reduces the appearance of deeper acne scars.
In this procedure, the intended part of the skin is repeatedly pricked by small microscopic needles over and over again. The goal here is to stimulate the production of more collagen and elastin in the body at a much faster rate. As the wounds heal and new skin forms, it visibly reduces light acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
