Acne Scar Reduction

When untreated acne penetrates deeply into the skin, it can damage the underlying skin and the tissue. As acne is treated or when it clears, the body tries to repair the damage left behind.

During this healing process, the fibroblasts in the dermis (second layer of skin) produce a substance called collagen.

Collagen acts as the framework, providing support to the epidermis (top layer of skin).

The incorrect amount of collagen in the wrong area will potentially create a scar and unevenness to the skin.

There are two main types of scars, each depends on how much collagen your body makes:

  • Raised (Hypertrophic): raised bumps caused by too much collagen and are most common on the shoulders, upper back and chest, and in people with darker skin types
  • Depressed (Atrophic): Are the most common type and are caused when not enough collagen is produced.

Atrophic scars are further subdivided into:

  • Icepick – narrow v-shaped scars extending deep into the dermis
  • Rolling – wide and shallow scars
  • Boxcar – similar to icepick scars but the same width from top to bottom
  • About RF Sublative for Treatment

    The fractionated Radio Frequency energy breaks down the old scar tissue from the injury and encouraging the reproduction of the new collagen is a more organised manner.

    SublativeTM targets the body’s natural wound healing process via cell destruction and reconstruction which triggers collagen and elastin production in very specific areas in the top dermal layer.

    Your natural wound healing mechanism then repairs the scar, wrinkle or stretch mark from lower layer of your skin without damaging the top epidermal layer.

  • Post Treatment Information - What to expect

    Post treatment, you will notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced.

    Scars, fine wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
