How to improve acne scars ? Mocro-needle RF or Fractional laser ?
The main cause of depressed acne scars is the formation of thickened bands of collagen under the scars causing a retraction of skin surface.
An effective treatment will have to reach into the deep layer of the skin to remodel the retracting collagen fibers under the scar.
The microneedles Radio frequency treatment heats the deep layer of the skin to produce new collagen.
In this kind of treatment the downtime and pain is minimal, and with few treatments only one may see significant improvement.
In contrast to micro-needles without RF or other microneedle RF systems, with this specific device there is no bleeding during the treatment and redness is over after less than 12 hours allowing patients to return to normal activities the next day. My patients are very satisfied with this treatment.
