There are several options available for acne scar treatment at DSHS.
At Dr. Divya’s Skin & Hair Solutions Clinic, internationally acclaimed FDA approved technology is used bringing the best of the world to Whitefield in Bengaluru. The highest standards of protocol and guidelines are followed in order to deliver the best results.
Microneedling radiofrequency (MNRF)
The delivery of radio frequency through the microscopic channels created by insulated needles throughout the tip helps in neocollagenesis and improvement of acne scars. It is a colour blind procedure and hence safer in dark skin as well. At DSHS , Internationally acclaimed and FDA approved MNRF Endymed pure 2.0 with 3DEEP Technology is used. It has a maximum energy output of 50 W and is capable of delivering energy in increments of 2.5 W in 20 equally graded energy level settings (Level 1-2.5 W to level 20-50 W) .The energy delivery system consists of a disposable tip with 49 gold-plated needles. The complete length of the needle is insulated and through the tip it delivers bursts of RF energy. The depth of the needles can be adjusted from a minimum of 0.5 mm to a maximum of 3.5 mm. It is an advantage to set multiple needle depths in a pass. This allows discrete electrothermal coagulation at different layers of the dermis. Electrothermal damage from occurring anywhere in the dermis but at the very tip of the needle and never in the epidermis is prevented by insulated needles.
Fractional sublative resurfacing(FSR)
Another technology which is most helpful in deep acne scars and skin resurfacing is use of FSR which helps in ablation of skin tissue and better textural improvement. It is not a LASER and hence safer to use in darker skin as well. There is a little downtime but the results make up for it.
