Who would not like to have a bright and beautiful face brimming with confidence and self-esteem. However, one glance at the mirror may bring it down if you have a skin with pimples, pits or scars. Scars are trails left behind by pimples. Pimples are rather mysterious as you never really know when the next one pops up to leave a blemish or a pit on your face. Scars are trails left behind by pimples. Pimples and subsequent scars are a very common concern among teens and young adults as most of them meddle with them in front of the mirror.
The causes for pimples are many. To put it simply, acne are caused by excessive natural oil (sebum) to get deposited and trapped in the skin pores. This causes skin inflammation healing with either a blemish or a pit. If you have an oily skin it would even more be a hub for the same. Hormonal imbalance and above all, it is stress which can contribute for acne and scars.
There are different types of acne scars such as rolling scars (with gently sloping edges)
- Box scars (with sharp edges)
- Ice-pick scars (deep pits which appear like large open pores).
But that doesn’t call for brooding because a visit to Our Clinics would ensure you find the right treatment for it. We have a customized solution to your problem which is subsequent to an elaborate consultation and standardized assessment procedure.
The following are the different types of treatment procedures we offer:
- PIXEL LASER RESURFACING
- SCAR EXCISION
- DERMAL FILLERS
- INTRALESIONAL INJECTIONS FOR KELOIDS, HYPERTROPHIC SCARS
PIXEL LASER RESURFACING
Pixel is extremely effective in stimulating collagen production and improves almost all types of scars and lines. It gives your skin a dramatically rejuvenated appearance as it encourages younger skin to emerge. The color and texture of your skin gets rid of blemishes giving it the perfect makeover.
This is an almost painless procedure when combined with a numbing cream and can be completed by our dermatologist in barely 15 minutes.
Sometimes a special technique called Shouldering May be done where the sharp edges of box scars are destroyed with the controlled use of erbium YAG laser in its pure ablative mode. This converts the clearly demarcated scars into those with gradually sloping cosmetically superior scars, which respond better to pixel resurfacing.
If you are looking for a quick fix, then this is right option to make you overjoyed. In this, the acne scars are filled up with Hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance produced in the skin. Hyaluronic acid may stay back in the place filling up the scars for a period of 6-8 months and later it is slowly digested by the body enzymes.
we use only US FDA approved fillers. Dermal fillers can be done as a lunch hour procedure with minimal discomfort under the affect of anaesthetic cream.
INTRALESIONAL INJECTIONS FOR KELOIDS,HYPERTROPHIC SCARS
Sometimes, instead of pits one may have raised bumpy scars after acne heals which are called hypertrophic scars. If they continue to outgrow the size of prior pimple it becomes a keloid. In this case, we give certain injections into those scars to stop them from growing in size and also to flatten them as much as possible. These injections are done at two to four weekly intervals till the desired result is achieved.
If you are suffering from flat scars or pigmented scars then the superficial peels is the apt treatment. Within 4-5 days, the top layers of skin peel off and reveal a clear unblemished skin.
