Treating acne scars could be tricky sometimes due to the varying morphology of individual scars (Box, rolling and icepick). Though there are various scales to grade their severity from 1-4 (mild to severe), it’s the kind of scar that determines the results that we can obtain (box & icepicks being the most difficult to treat).

Subscission

Deep scars usually have underlying fibrous bands which pull and fix the surface of the skin to the deeper layers (dermis). This demands for the need to release the fibres before we go ahead with any procedure that stimulates collagen production.

Here, we use a radiofrequency probe that’s introduced from a port created in a corner to allow maximum approachability. The probe is then gently moved around to release the fibrous bands.

Microneedling

We use sublative radiofrequency assisted microneedling, to achieve best results. The microcurrents generated at the tips of the needles, help in new collagen production and alignment of the fibres, that further helps lift the scars.. The associated downtime (redness, pain, swelling) is greatly reduced, as the microcurrents are generated only after the needles enter the dermis. This means there’s zero chance of epidermal burns and associated pigmentation, while delivering maximum collagen production.

CO2 LASER

During CO2 laser skin treatment, the skin is first cleansed and numbed with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The laser is then applied to the targeted areas of the skin, where it delivers pulses of laser energy to precisely remove thin layers of damaged skin. The depth and intensity of the treatment can be adjusted based on the specific skin concerns being addressed and the desired outcome.
