There are very beautiful memories of youth. Those that the skin still testifies to aren’t among them… A few teenage years spent under siege of virulent acne can mark the skin, and the soul, for life.
Today, there are treatments available to leave these bad memories behind once and for all.
If acne is clearly no longer active, the doctor can combine several advanced techniques, such as fractional radiofrequency with micro-needles, coupled with a Subcision Topping/Coating to lift deep scars and smooth the skin.
The use of fractional radiofrequency with micro-needles is advisable in the treatment of acne scars, often etched deep, requiring to be smoothed and refined.
Radiofrequency is a high frequency electromagnetic wave applied to the skin by a handpiece. This electromagnetic wave generates heat able to reach the deep dermis. This rise in temperature (up to 43 ° C) gradually induces tissue retraction and gives rise to tissue production of collagen and elastin which will fill, smooth and soften the scars.
In addition, the mechanical action of these micro-needles has a mechanical action on the scars that are thus more easily removed.
Subcision Topping/Coating, what you need to know
In order to smooth the surface of the skin and eliminate skin irregularities as best as possible, a treatment using hyaluronic acid and collagen inducers is possible.
The doctor, with a thin flexible cannula, passes delicately beneath the skin and mechanically detaches the cutaneous adhesions pulling it inwards. Once these adhesions are detached, the doctor proceeds with the sectoral, very precise injection. It is the mixture of hyaluronic acid and a collagen inducer that will help maintain the plump and smooth appearance of the skin.
Collagen inducers are most often fully absorbable molecules of calcium or PCL. Once injected into the skin, they will stimulate fibroblasts (our collagen and elastin manufacturers) and create a mesh that will naturally densify, firm, tone and smooth the skin.
Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is a biocompatible gel, naturally present in the skin. Moisturizing, and completely absorbable, it is used as a natural aesthetic treatment to fill acne scars. It is also used to reduce deep and superficial wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid can also be used to successfully and precisely sculpt a chin, plump a forehead or hands, moisturize lips or redefine the bridge of a nose.
A session lasts approximately 45 mins.
It begins with a careful diagnostic examination of the skin and the areas to be treated by the doctor. Once the diagnosis has been established, the treatment has been defined and consent has been given, an anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin. The first processing step, the subcision topping/coating takes a few minutes, right before the fractional radiofrequency session itself can start.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant evenly applies a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid. This mask soothes the treated skin.
A few minutes later, the patient can immediately resume the normal course of their day. Some redness, easily concealed with a little tinted cream, may appear.
Acne Scars treatment also prevents the recurrence of acne. Fractional radiofrequency with micro-needles has an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect on the sebaceous glands.
The treatment takes 45 minutes. It is renewed according to the evolution of the skin over the following month. Several sessions are sometimes necessary to obtain the desired final result.
