Acne Scars

Say Goodbye to Acne Scars and Embrace Smoother Skin

What are Acne Scars?

Acne scars are long-lasting marks on the skin that develop as a result of severe or prolonged acne. When acne lesions, such as pimples, cysts, or nodules, penetrate the skin deeply, they can cause damage to the surrounding tissues. Acne scars can serve as a painful reminder of a time we’d sooner forget. It’s a natural part of life, and nothing to be ashamed of but there are some things we’d rather move on from.

It can become a problem when it affects your confidence.

How do these devices work to reduce acne scarring?

Potenza generates radiofrequency (RF) that is delivered through the skin into the target tissue. As the RF energy passes through the skin, heat is generated which is capable of coagulating the tissue and thus destroying the old/fibrotic collagen. At the same time, RF from Potenza helps in stimulating new collagen creation that improves the irregularities and acne blemishes on skin as consequence of acne.

Picosure Pro treats effectively acne scars derived from active acne processes as well as helps correcting hyperpigmentation associated with this skin condition that may occur.

What can I expect during my Cynosure Acne treatment?

After undergoing the treatment, you may experience temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site, which typically subsides within a few days. It is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider to discuss potential side effects and the necessary post-treatment care. In general, patients start noticing positive outcomes after 3-7 treatments, although the ideal number of sessions can vary.

It is recommended to collaborate with your provider to develop a personalised treatment plan that suits your specific needs. The duration of each session can be as short as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients observe their scars lightening in colour and achieving a more uniform texture as a result of the treatment.
