Acne Scars

Procedures With Downtime

Sciton® MicroLaserPeel®

MicroLaserPeel removes the top layer of damaged skin. As skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with improved texture, tone and colour.

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Pigmentation
  • Irregular skin tone/ texture
  • Superficial wrinkles
Depending on the severity of the condition, results can be observed in one treatment. For maintenance, MicroLaserPeel can be done every 6-8 weeks.
Topical numbing cream will be applied pre-procedure. In addition, a cooling device will be used during procedure to reduce discomfort.
Immediately following the procedure, you may experience redness, mild swelling and a sensation resembling sunburn. The treated skin will peel away within the next few days. Aftercare advice will be given.
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3-4 days.
MicroLaserPeel can be combined with BBL for better pigmentation results or ProFractional for deep acne scars.

Sciton® ProFractional™ Therapy

ProFractional uses erbium yag laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, while the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, improving the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and textural/colour irregularities.

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Pigmentation
  • Aged and photo-damaged skin
Depending on the severity of the condition, results can be observed in one treatment. For maintenance, ProFractional can be done every 4-6 months.
Topical numbing cream will be applied pre-procedure. In addition, a cooling device will be used during procedure to reduce discomfort.
Immediately following the procedure, there will be redness, swelling, and a sensation resembling sunburn. The treated skin will scab and peel away within a week. The application of aftercare products will aid with wound healing.
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work after 7 days.
ProFractional can be combined with MicroLaserPeel to treat deep acne scars.

Subcision

Subcision is a simple in-office surgery for treatment of depressed acne scars. The principle of this procedure is to manually break down scar tissue that is anchoring the outer skin to the underlying deeper tissue. The release of the scar tissue and new collagen deposition leads to cosmetic improvement of the scars.
The number of treatment sessions required depends on the severity of the condition. 3 treatment sessions done once every 4 weeks suffice for the majority.
The procedure will be performed with local anaesthesia.
Subcision is safe. Common complications can include bruising, redness and swelling. Aftercare advice will be given.
The redness and bruising typically resolves within 4-5 days.

Subcision is usually combined with Sciton MicroLaserPeel and ProFractional to treat deep acne scars.

Rejuran s 婴儿针

Rejuran is the latest anti-ageing treatment that has surged in popularity across Asia. Manufactured in South Korea, Rejuran contains polynucleotide derived from salmon DNA extract that is biologically similar to human DNA. The treatment increases skin’s regenerative ability, improves elasticity and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Compared to Rejuran Healer, Rejuran s is more suited for scar treatment as it has a thicker viscosity and therefore, able to lift depressed scars and initiate repair of scar tissue more effectively.

  • Improves skin density and elasticity
  • Improves skin texture
  • Tightens and lifts the skin
  • Reduces pores
  • Improves skin tone and colour
  • Improves the appearance of acne scar
  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves dark eye circles
  • Reduces sebum
Rejuran is safe. The most common post-treatment reaction is redness, swelling and bruising. You will begin to notice gradual improvement 3-4 weeks after the first treatment, best results are observed after four treatment sessions.
A typical treatment program is made up of four initial sessions 3 weeks apart, thereafter, one treatment every 6 months is recommended.

Rejuran s is usually combined with subcision, MicroLaserPeel and ProFractional therapy as part of our scar revision treatment program.
