Acne Scar Treatment | Halley Medical Aesthetics

Acne Scar Treatment

The problem with acne is not just the acne itself but also the scars, both physical and emotional, that it leaves behind. If the hyperpigmentation marks, red spots, deep pits, or uneven skin texture are getting you down, why not look at how laser treatments can resurface your skin so as to reveal a smooth, healthy, evenly toned skin?

In addition to lasers, Rejuran S is a skin healer treatment that repairs acne scars by smoothening the scars and filling up uneven skin surface.

While other lasers use photothermal action to treat pigmentation by delivering heat to both the skin pigment and surrounding tissues, pico lasers use ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to treat the skin in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). This photomechanical effect targets pigment particles without damaging the surrounding tissues, thus keeping recovery time to a minimum.

At Halley Medical Aesthetics, our clinic has two different pico lasers – the Fotona PQX Picolaser (Fotona StarWalker PQX Picolaser) and the PicoSure Laser – that allows us to deliver three different laser wavelengths of 532nm, 755nm, and 1064nm. This enables our doctors to use the most appropriate pico laser after assessing your skin to treat the acne scars.

Pico lasers are very versatile and can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including the removal of tattoos.Pico lasers are also especially effective for treating pigmentation, lightening uneven skin tone and blemishes, and erasing fine lines and wrinkles.

The Fraxel® Dual Laser uses a highly focused beam of light to reduce skin irregularities like scars or blemishes. It is an all-rounder, being able to improve skin texture, attack brown spots and scars, and stimulate collagen production. And being non-ablative (which means it tackles only the deeper layers of the skin, leaving the surface layer intact), the Fraxel Dual Laser promotes new skin growth from inside out, offering faster healing, optimal results with less redness, and far less downtime than ablative lasers.

3. Fractional CO2 Laser

The Fractional CO2 laser uses computer-generated, pixelated, and electronically-generated grids to target small microscopic areas over the face (20%-40% of surface area). These lasers remove the superficial to middle layers of the skin in tiny dots all over the face to promote new skin growth, stimulate collagen, and even help remove superficial pigmentation as well. Because the targeted areas are microscopic, the unaffected areas help to heal the affected areas, reducing the downtime from two weeks to five days.

4. Fractional Erbium Laser

The Fractional Erbium laser ablates or removes a very fine layer of the epidermis (top layer of skin) in a controlled manner to reveal skin that is smooth and young looking. This laser treatment not only activates collagen to tighten the skin, but it also helps to smoothen out superficial facial wrinkles and reduce acne scarring and pigmentation. It can be used to remove skin lumps and bumps as well.

In addition to lasers, skin healers can also be used to treat acne scars.

Rejuran® S is part of the Rejuran range of skin healer treatments, which contains polynucleotides (PN), a biological molecule which has regeneration ability and works by stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts to produce collagen. The use of Rejuran S goes beyond skin hydration and is designed to treat acne scars. As such, it has a higher viscosity than Rejuran Healer to plump up depressed acne scars. It smoothens out acne scars, making them less visible. Rejuran S can be used in combination with acne laser treatments or as a standalone treatment. It is best that you consult the doctor on the most appropriate treatment plan for your skincare needs.
