Acne Scars India
We at Saraswat Hospital offer an immense range of treatments for acne scars. To name them…
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER – Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. The laser creates (with its micro beams ) mini wounds and allows the body to naturally heal them, producing collagen and epithelium to aid the process. This new technology replicates the results without the discomfort or downtime caused by regular methods.
What happens then – As your skin heals naturally, the new layer will appear much more radiant and healthy, with the unsightly acne marks and fine lines either no longer visible or markedly reduced on your skin.
Our aesthetician at Saraswat Hospital Agra works marvelously over acne scars doing different types of scars in different settings of the machine for maximum benefit.
CO2 LASER – The CO2 laser goes slights deeper and has a different way of shrinking collagen than the Fractional CO2 laser. The CO2 is best for patients who are late 40s to 70s with moderate to deep wrinkles/sun damage or with moderate to severe acne scarring when performed by an expert with the proper settings. But as the CO2 goes deeper, there can be more “downtime” than with the Fractional CO2 Laser.
FAT /ADIPOSE STEM CELLS: Stem cells derived from adipose tissue can be used very effectively to treat acne scars up to a good extent. It softens them, makes the skin smoother and also fills up the acne pits. The stem cells help in collagen neogenesis and better epidermal and dermal layers (also better turn over rate for epidermal cells which keeps the skin younger).
SUBSICION WITH DERMAROLLERS /DERMAPEN: Time tested good old technique for acne scars. When the acne are in the process of eruption they form fibrous bands between their bases and the dermal tissue. These fibrous bands are broken by the 18 gauge needle used to break the bands during subsicion by the sweeping movements of the needle.
Also the haematoma formed during the process serves to elevate the base of the acne scar and eventually forms the fibrous tissue underneath which permanently shallows the pits.
Dermarollers or Dermapens create numerous microscopic holes in the skin (upto 256 per cm2) which when skin tries to heal with newly made components and various growth factors rejuvenates the rest of the skin too.
PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma): The goodness of Platelet Rich Plasma made from patients own blood, containing growth factors, cytokines , IGFs and so on help naturally soften and lessen the acne scars. It can be used for giving mesotherapy to the acne free area of face which rejuvenates the facial skin.
CROSS (Chemical Reconstruction of skin scars) for ice pick acne scars can be done with good efficacy. This also is a time tested old and good method using TCA 100% for the same.
