This disease that affects adolescents and that also affects many adults often leaves its mark even after the “acne phase” still are the scars.

Stay on top of what is in treatment for scars caused by acne.

The big news is the treatment full thickness.

Biostimulation association with Microfocado Ultrasound:
When we have more than one type of acne scar, we have to stimulating new collagen from the deep dermis to the surface and also a new skin stimulation what we call the stimulation of all skin thickness, for this create a protocol for stimulation collagen with subcutaneous injection of calcium hydroxyapatite, application Microfocado Ultrasound which stimulates collagen in the mid and deep dermis. If necessary we can still count on CO2 Laser or Microagulhamento for the stimulation of the epidermis.

All in the same day and in one session!
Besides the mentioned above technique, we still have other treatment options that are effective when it comes to scars caused by acne.

Chemical Peels: can be superficial, medium or deep, according to the depth of the skin that you want to achieve. The results are more apparent the more profound are the peelings. Here it is worth remembering that although it is a non-invasive procedure, should still be performed by a trained professional must understand the outcome you want to achieve to analyze the skin type to define the type of peeling.Bons results can be obtained with peelings surface repeated and carried out at short intervals, especially for the treatment of diseases caused by acne. In addition to lighten spots, peelings improve skin texture, which is more uniform and improves its appearance as a whole. When the scars are deeper, the medium peelings the deep can be better used.
Dermabrasion: is the skin sanding, is indicated in cases where there is presence of depressed and deep scars, especially those with well-defined edges. The procedure is done under anesthesia.
Dermal filler: for depressed scars disappear when the skin is stretched, filling the microdroplets technique is a good indication. Substances are injected under the scar, lifting it up. The fillers may be temporary, such as hyaluronic acid (which can last about 1 year). The procedure is well tolerated and more sensitive people may use an anesthetic cream.
Scarring Elevation indicated for those depressed scars that look like chicken pox marks. Under local anesthesia, it uses a punch (sharp instrument like a straw) to cut the scar skin in a circle, without releasing it from the deeper tissues, raising it to the normal level of the skin and secure it with a bandage . Often the skin is even higher than normal skin, if necessary, subsequently perform a dermabrasion throughout the region to match the height.
Excision and Suture Simple: used to remove unsightly scars, with jagged edges. It is the removal of the scar with a scalpel under anesthesia. The resulting scar removal is more uniform, made edge to edge, with better aesthetic result.
Laser Resurfacing: treatment is similar to dermabrasion except that, instead of sandpaper, tissue removal is made by laser. Thus, the depth of tissue to be removed is controlled by the computer, whereas in dermabrasion, the sensitivity depends more professional. It is indicated for depressed scars of well-marked edges.
Subcision: used to raise depressed scars, the technique is to release the skin scarring that pulls down. It is made by introducing cutting needle under the scar in back and forth movements, which cut the fibrous tissue, loosening the skin. A hematoma resulting from trauma stimulates the formation of collagen tissue at the site, which will also help raise the scar.
Microagulhamento: use a pen Derma Pen, where with several needles makes stimuli activating the skin to produce collagen, greatly improving the appearance of skin.
