ACNE SCARS AND IPL
WHAT ARE ACNE SCARS ?
Permanent textural changes and indentations that occur on the skin following severe acne result in acne scars. Scarring occurs as the body creates collagen to repair the damage. Depending on the skin type and other factors, the scarring can be relatively shallow and easy to correct, or deep where scarring is more severe. The healing process creates significant changes in the texture and smoothness of the skin, forming depressions (lost tissue) or giving the skin a rolling, wave-like appearance (adds tissue).
WHY DO ACNE SCARS FORM ?
Acne is an inflammatory process. In the non-inflammatory phase there is no scarring. Once the non-inflammatory lesion evolves into an inflammatory lesion, the mechanisms of wound healing are activated. If the inflammation is extensive and deep extending into the deep dermis and continues untreated, scarring results. The different types of acne scars are as a result of the extent, depth and degree of inflammation that is followed by repair. On the face, commonly there is an indentation (depressed scar), and on the chest and the back the scarring can be raised and lumpy – known as hypertrophic or keloid scarring.
TYPES OF ACNE SCARS :
IPL ACNE SCAR TREATMENT :
IPL uses numerous wavelengths of light delivered in a short pulse. The multiple wavelengths of light from the IPL treatment mean that a larger number of skin cells can be targeted for a more impactful treatment without the need to use multiple lasers to address various layers of skin and types of cells and tissues. Patients who have an acne scar that is pitted and has created discoloration will need at least two different treatments to address the collagen production issue as well as the hyper or hypopigmentation issue caused by the scarring. IPL treatments address both types of skin damage from acne scars simultaneously.
In addition to the multiple wavelengths of light energies, IPL treatment uses short pulses that offer maximum effect for the targeted tissues while minimizing negative impact outside the treatment area. Research has proven that “A single treatment that can address skin redness, texture issues, active breakouts, and scar tissue sounds like it shouldn’t be possible, but IPL treatments have the the ability to carefully address a wide range of issues associated with acne in shorter visits that are very comfortable.
IPL continues to be an innovative and effective treatment option for Acne Scars.
PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENT :
If you have acne and you are looking for the best solution to get rid of it, then IPL photofacial is the solution you need. IPL photofacials are recommended for individuals with severe acne or acne scarring, as well as other conditions like sun spots and age spots (through targeting blood vessels), and fine lines.
With just a few sessions, IPL treatments can clear up even the most extreme cases of facial acne and/or acne scarring. The exact treatment needed will depend on the severity of the patient’s acne condition. The typical skin treatment course should be about 4-6 sessions, each session a few weeks apart. Sessions can last anywhere from 15-20 minutes or up to an hour; this depends on how much skin needs to be treated.
HEALING AND RECOVERY :
A great advantage of IPL treatment is that it causes minimal discomfort to the top layer of the skin, meaning healing and recovery is quicker than with other types of skin and acne treatments. After each treatment, patients should feel like they have a mild sunburn on the treated area; this can last anywhere from 4-6 hours. Other effects may also include slight bruising and reddening for a day after the treatment, and some peeling after the first few weeks.
AFTER CARE :
To maximize your recovery, follow the following tips:
VISIBLE RESULTS :
You can expect to see some improvements after the first treatment, but full results won’t start to become visible until after the first few treatments are done and several weeks into treatments.
