Adolescence is a common time for the appearance of acne on the skin. The cause of this skin condition is often attributed to the production of androgens, which are hormones that stimulate the skin’s sebum production.
Comedones, which are commonly referred to as whiteheads and blackheads, develops when the pores of the skin become clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. Microorganisms invade the pores, triggering an immune system response, which leads to inflammation caused by inflammatory cells at the site of infection. The inflammation may result in swollen and painful pimples. Luckily, non-surgical methods exist for diminishing these imperfections caused by acne.
Additionally, acne production may be influenced by genetic factors, though it is thought that multiple genes interact to cause this condition instead of just one.
Types Of Acne Scars
Hypertrophic Acne Scars
If your skin is damaged, your body produces collagen to support the healing process. However, excessive collagen production leads to the formation of keloids or hypertrophic scars.
Atrophic Acne Scars
Your skin may be unable to generate adequate collagen for the restoration of pimple scars, leading to acne marks that heal as sunken scars below the skin’s surface.
Rolling Acne Scars
Smooth and subtle borders characterize rolling scars, which may not be noticeable at first. These types of acne scars tend to become more prominent as we get older due to skin laxity, giving them a rolling appearance.
Ice Pick Acne Scars
The pronounced scars caused by acne appear similar to enlarged pores that are open. Due to their indented, small shape that penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, they are considered one of the most challenging kinds of acne scars to repair.
Boxcar Acne Scars
Boxcar scars are depressions on the skin that are larger and not as deep as ice pick scars. They typically appear in circular, oval, or irregular shapes when acne causes tissue damage.
What Are The Best Remedies For Healing Acne Scars?
Pico laser has the ability to regenerate skin and enhance the appearance of severe acne scars. This non-invasive treatment generates laser energy in brief intervals to induce collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. It offers noticeable results, leaving your skin refreshed and with minimal recovery time required.
Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional CO2 laser technology provides an innovative cosmetic option for rejuvenating the skin that is based on fractional technology. This technique merges the effective results of ablative fractional resurfacing with the convenience and comfort that patients experience from non-ablative fractional resurfacing.
Microscopic beams of laser technology eliminate less than 20% of the outer layer of skin. By creating tiny laser points, heat is transmitted to the inner layer of the skin.
After undergoing therapy, a process of healing occurs which stimulates the creation of fresh collagen. The pinkness gradually lessens, and eventually the outermost layer of skin sheds.
After a period of collagen restructuring that lasts for several weeks, old skin tissue in the epidermis and dermis is removed and substituted with fresh skin tissue.
Rejuran S Acne Scar Treatment
Rejuran S is an enhanced form of Rejuran Healer created specifically to treat acne scarring. The fragments of DNA, known as Polynucleotides (PN), help to repair damaged cells and stimulate collagen production. This treatment is highly effective for acne scars as it supports skin regeneration and the reconstruction of collagen fibers.
