Scars from acne can seem like double punishment — first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have marks as a reminder.
How many types of acne scars are there?
Acne scars take two forms:
- reddish or brownish discolouration called PIE (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation)
- Depressed scars (Ice Pick, Boxcar, Rolling)
- Raised scars (Keloid)
How do I treat PIE scars?
Using a combination of laser and mild chemical peel, we can get rid of your reddish/brownish scars in just a few sessions.
How do I treat my depressed scars?
Trichloroacetic Peel (TCA) is a special chemical peel which helps reduce deep scars like ice pick, box car and rolling scars. It breaks up old scar tissues and stimulates new collagen growth, leading to lesser scars almost immediately.
Using the latest in scar management technology, our Signature Scar Eraser treatment combines Venus Viva NanoFractional Radiofrequency with a mild TCA Peel to achieve a much superior result with better outcome.
Using a specialised Nocor needle, subcision is a minimally invasive procedure which uses a needle to literally free and remove the scars from under the skin. This procedure only lasts no longer than 10 mins and the results lasts a lifetime.
How do I treat Keloids?
Keloids occur due to overgrowth of collagen and requires a specialized cocktail injection (5-fluorouracil with triamcinolone). This cocktail literally eats and kills the keloid from within.
