Comprehensive Acne Scar Treatment with Pico Laser Programme
Acne scars can remain on the face permanently if they are left untreated. These depressed scars peppered across your face act as a constant reminder of your teenage years with raging hormones. Unfortunately as teenagers, we were never told that neglecting our skin may have lifelong consequences if teenage acne outbreak was not kept in check.
In most cases, depressed scars such as rolling or boxcar scars may form on the lateral cheeks, making the skin look uneven and craggy, taking on the appearance of an orange peel.
Why do acne scars form?
Acne scars form when the dermis (deep layer of the skin) is damaged. The body’s natural response when there is a damage is for it to create new collagen fibers to mend the damage, resulting in scar tissue. Most scar tissue will have a different texture and appearance than the surrounding skin. If there is a loss of tissue, atrophic scars will form.
Acne scars can be challenging to treat, and it is often a long-drawn, painful process if you are seeking improvement in skin texture. Unfortunately, over-the-counter scar removal creams aren’t good enough to improve the skin texture.
At Radium Medical Aesthetics, we understand that everyone’s scar patterns are unique and most people have more than one type of acne scarring on their skin. This means that you may require different treatments to see the best results.
Combination Treatment for Better Skin Texture
PicoSure Scar Repair Programme focuses on addressing the acne scars at different layers of the skin.
A microdermabrasion treatment is a gentle procedure that removes the outer layer of the skin. It exfoliates the superficial layer of the skin, reducing the appearance of depressed scars and brightening the skin at the same time. No numbing cream is required because it is a gentle and painless procedure.
PicoSure FOCUS Lens Array leverages on the picosecond technology that goes beyond tattoo removal. It is one of the unique features of our Pico Laser treatment. The unique mechanism of FOCUS Lens Array has shown equally effective results similar to ablative and non-ablative lasers – without the downtime and minimal patient discomfort. The FOCUS Lens Array stimulates new collagen and elastin production without the side effects commonly associated with factional and ablative laser treatments.
