You take a look in the mirror. Yes you think, that spot that has been taking up residency on the left side of your face for the last week or so has finally packed its bags and left. Your delightment is soon cut short however when you realise that even though the spot has gone it has left behind a mark in the form of a scar.
The thing is even without picking and squeezing, acne lesions can leave behind scars due to the intense collagen damaging skin inflammation with which they are associated.
There are 2 main types of acne scars:
1. Raised Acne Scars: These types of scars are raised out of the skin.
2. Depressed Acne Scars: The most common type these types of acne scars indent into the skin
Raised acne scars consist of :
Confined to the original outbreak area. These scars can be very itchy and cause discomfort and pain.
These are larger and are not confined to the outbreak. Keloid scars can be itchy and uncomfortable. You will most likely find these types of acne scars on darker skinned individuals.
Depressed acne scars consist of:
Ice Pick Scars:
These form deep pits into the skin – the appearance of these scars look like they have been caused by a ice pick or another narrow similar sharp object hence the name.
Boxcar scars are very similar in appearance to chickenpox. These will be most likely be on your cheeks or temples and are oval in shape. Depending on the severity these can be fairly shallow to quite deep in depth.
Shallow scars are wide and shallow that create a sort of wave like appearance on the surface of the skin.
You may feel all alone but did you know that 2 in every 10 people in the UK suffer from acne scarring that is socially noticeable. Most of these people use creams to try and treat the scars but the truth is these only treat from the outside.
Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that develop on the surface of the skin. They are caused when the skin is suddenly stretched and the dermis layer of the skin breaks allowing the deeper layers to show through.
Reasons for stretching can involve:
• Weight Gain
• Growth Spurts (As can be seen during puberty).
The areas that are usually most affected by stretch marks include the abdomen, thighs and buttocks.
Many people who currently have stretch marks believe that its something that they are unable to treat or manage. This is not the case.
If you suffer from acne scars or stretch marks Sublative Rejuvenation is for you. But what makes this treatment so special? Well first of all it’s the world’s very first Radiofrequency applicator and is a non-laser and non-light based aesthetic device. If that doesn’t impress you I don’t know what will…
What can it do for me?
To cut a long story short you can think of this as your laser free resurfacing saviour. It stimulates new collagen growth in the deep dermis and is used to treat textural irregularities, wrinkles, acne scarring and sun spots. Here’s the cool part, any skin type can be treated – from dry to sensitive to oily and everything in-between. Now take into consideration that this treatment only takes around 20 minutes and you can start to see why this is something special.
Does It hurt?
Ok I am going to be honest with you, this is a fair question and in truth Sublative Rejuvenation isn’t entirely painless. However this isn’t to say it’s painful either. Many people say the feeling is of a slight discomfort and the irritation experienced during the procedure feels similar to a dull tingly feeling.
How does it work?
Sublative Rejuvenation works its magic by stimulating the collagen in the dermis. This treatment uses fractional b-polar radio frequency to break through the skin all without damaging the top layer. This allows for more energy to get underneath the skin and make the most of collagen production.
During this treatment wrinkles, textural abnormalities, sun spots and acne scars are attacked from the inside out. Even after your very first treatment you will notice a considerable difference, even with the deepest of scars.
