Acne scars are an unwanted reminder of puberty or hormonal problems later in life. Our experience shows that an effective method of getting rid of acne scars is Loktal microneedle radiofrequency, which we use at our institute.
Sometimes patients who come to us have been unsuccessfully trying to remove acne scars for several years using specialized cosmetics or simply home remedies. Unfortunately, most often the results are not what they would expect. This is due to the fact that no cosmetic will remodel the skin from the inside, and this is the goal of therapy in the case of scars.
Patients are looking for effective methods of removing acne marks, but before proceeding with the procedure, it is worth taking a look at them. Depending on how their healing process went, acne scars can take the form of less visible imperfections, shallow scars and discoloration, so-called. atrophic scarring and so-called acne holes.
There are several methods to remove acne scars, which is why it is so important to consult a specialist. At our institute, we select treatments individually to the actual needs of the patient and the effects we want to achieve. Acne scars sometimes require combining several treatments, and in the case of deep scars, the therapy may last several months. However, the results are visible from treatment to treatment.
Acne scars are caused by inflammation, which leads to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Microneedle radiofrequency with the Loktal device causes the reconstruction of the skin structure from the inside and breaking old collagen chains, thanks to which the skin revitalizes, producing new collagen and elastin. From one treatment to another, the scars get smaller, and the discoloration associated with acne is lightened.
We proceed to the procedure after consultation. Before it starts, we apply an anesthetic cream that will make the procedure painless. The treatment consists in delivering electromagnetic impulses – under the influence of heat, the deeper layers of the skin are rebuilt. The Loktal device is equipped with two tips that can be used to remove acne scars – Fraxx and Lima, containing microneedles for puncturing the skin. The entire procedure takes several minutes.
We can use repair creams or moisturize the skin with the creams used so far. 2-3 days after the procedure, micro-scabs will appear, which should not be scratched. They will be barely visible, felt under the fingers. You can put makeup on them, but if you can wait until they are completely healed, let’s do it. The first effects appear after a few days, but for the full effect – skin reconstruction, we have to wait 3-4 weeks. Then you can repeat the procedure.
