Acne & Scar : MNRF

Everyone wants to have a bright face, brimming with confidence and self-esteem. However, one glance at the mirror may bring it down if you have a skin with pimples, pits or scars. Scars are trails left behind by Pimples. Acne is caused by excessive natural oil (sebum) that gets deposited and trapped in the skin pores. This causes skin inflammation either with a blemish or a pit. If you have an oily skin, it would even more prominent. Hormonal imbalance and above all, it is stress which can contribute to acne and scars.

Treatments

PIXEL LASER RESURFACING

Pixel is extremely effective in stimulating collagen production and improves almost all types of scars and lines. It gives your skin a dramatically rejuvenated appearance as it encourages younger skin to emerge. The color and texture of your skin gets rid of blemishes giving it the perfect makeover.

CHEMICAL PEELS

If you are suffering from flat scars or pigmented scars then the superficial peels at Oliva is the apt treatment. Within 4-5 days, the top layers of skin peel off and reveal a clear, unblemished skin.

MICRO-NEEDLING RADIO FREQUENCY

Low voltage radio frequency waves (electrical energy) are used to remodel the skin by stimulating newer collagen production. The heat generated here, causes the stimulation of cells in connective tissues under the skin, also destroying the scar tissues while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. This treatment is extremely effective in deep scar revision

SUBCISION

In this, the scarred area is first addressed with local anesthesia and the bands that hold the base of the scar to the underlying structures are released using specially made needles. This reduces the scar’s depth.

DERMAL FILLERS

If you are looking for a quick fix, then this is right option to make you happy. In this, the acne scars are filled up with hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance produced in the skin. Hyaluronic acid may stay back in the place filling up the scars for a period of 6-8 months and later it is slowly digested by the body enzymes.

SCAR EXCISION

This is an effective method for dealing with deep scars. This process involves excision of the scar with a small pen-sized punch to ensure that the scar is removed completely. This is done under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Ideally, the edges of the normal skin are stitched together to create an almost imperceptible shallow scar. This is then blended with the pixel resurfacing to enhance its cosmetic appearance.
