Skin Specialist Doctor in Chandigarh
Acne breakouts are distressing, but the scars that are left behind are stubborn and permanent. These acne scars are an unwanted reminder of the bothersome condition. Acne scars are of two types-Atrophic and Hypertrophic. Atrophic acne scars are indented scars that heal below the layer of skin tissue. These scars are formed when the skin is unable to generate enough skin tissues to compensate for the loss. These leave behind uneven skin texture and scarring. Atrophic scars can be classified into three types depending upon the severity- Ice pick scars (small and narrow), Boxcar scars (flat bottom and defined border) and Rolling scars (with no distinct edges). The Hypertrophic scars are raised above the skin and are a result of excess collagen production during the healing process.
Parisa Skin Cosmetic & Laser Centre offers a wide variety of treatment options to reduce the appearance of acne scars. These advanced skin treatments are performed under the guidance of the Skin Specialist in Chandigarh, Dr. Ashima Goel, who has a vast experience in clinical and cosmetic dermatology. The following treatments are very effective with no side-effects whatsoever.
Chemical Peel Treatment :
Chemical peel treatment for acne scars is a dermato-surgical procedure which is performed without any surgical instruments. The peels are gentle over the skin but tough on the scars. As the name suggests, chemical peels are an active form of chemical exfoliants that provides an exfoliating effect on the surface skin cells. The strength of chemical peels determines the level of injury to the skin. But the results are amazing as one can experience an even-toned, smooth, and glowing skin after full recovery.
Fractional CO2 laser Treatment :
Fractional CO2 laser treatment is a skin resurfacing treatment. The CO2 laser with the longest wavelength is highly effective for acne scars. It can be also be used safely over darker skin tone after making appropriate settings. It is an ablative laser where the laser beam is fractionated into microscopic beams. This pixelated form of energy goes into the skin to generate heat which does thermal damage to the skin to regenerate new skin. After the treatment, the patient can experience an even-textured skin. To obtain visible results, multiple sessions are recommended.
IPL Laser :
Intense Pulsed Light Laser works in a way that the special pulse emitted by the laser delivers a quick burst of light energy underneath the skin. This light energy helps to repair the damage to the melanin responsible for skin discoloration and also boosts the bodys own natural collagen production. This way, the IPL laser is effective in reducing redness and pigmented marks left by acne and even skin texture.
Microneedle Fractional RF :
There are three mechanisms used in microneedling skincare treatment which helps to achieve a reduction in acne scars through wound healing response. The RF energy at the microneedle tips induces thermal energy. The movement of fine microneedles through the skin causes controlled mechanical injury. And the platelets released during this process provide cytokines, growth factors, that helps in the skin healing process. All three procedures stimulate collagen production and new skin generation.
Microneedling with dermaroller:
A dermaroller is a drum-like shaped instrument which contains fine and small microneedles. This instrument is rolled over the affected areas of the skin, causing controlled injuries to start the healing mechanism. It heals open wounds by stimulating collagen production that improves the skin texture, health, and elasticity of the skin.
