Scars are a result of the biological process of wound repair in the skin after an injury to the tissue. It is a natural part of the healing process. Scar tissue is composed of the same protein (collagen) as the tissue that it replaces, but the fiber composition of the protein is different and inferior to the normal fiber composition.
Topical mild acne scarring is successfully treated through skin needling which works by stimulating collagen production and skin repair at the outer layers. A deep infusion of nutrients through Phonophoresis paired with the benefits of Ultrasound Technology assists in achieving a noticeable improvement in overall skin quality.
A multi-tiered approach to scar treatment can be attained with the NEOGEN Nitrogen Plasma System. Multiple treatments with low energy help revitalise the skin and gradually repair the tissue. A single treatment at high energy penetrates deeper into the dermal layers and stimulates healthy collagen and elastin tissue. High energy NEOGEN scar treatment is equivalent to multiple laser treatments.
At the deeper levels, treatment of scars by Fractional Laser is done by using short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the skin’s support structure. The body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin – the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin.
