Acne scars

How to prevent
acne scars?

Acne can leave marks such as: scars, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or irregular skin texture. To avoid these side effects of severe acne as much as possible, it is important to consult a dermatologist as soon as it appears to prevent and limit its progression.

formation of acne scars

Scars appear when the outer layers of the skin that form the epidermis are damaged and the deeper layers are also affected. In the normal healing process, collagen fibers are naturally produced. When the skin repairs itself, these fibers fill the wound from the inside out, but when the damage is extensive, the replacement tissue may remain visible because it is of inferior quality.

Acne scars can have several aspects such as atrophic (ice pick), hypertrophic and keloid scars. Each type of scar has its own properties, but as a general rule they are mostly difficult to treat. This is why no treatment aims to eliminate them, but rather to reduce their appearance.

Treatments for acne scars

radiofréquence nanofractionnelle Venus Viva

Fractional Radiofrequency

Nanofractional Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing is one of the most effective treatments for improving the overall appearance of the skin. The needles that penetrate the skin, combined with the energy delivered by the radio frequency, will force the skin to tighten naturally.
laser fractionnel CO2 pour traitement des cicatrices

CO2 Fractional laser

The CO2 fractional laser is also a treatment of choice for skin tightening, but unlike fractional radiofrequency treatments, this technology cannot be performed on all skin types.

traitement micro-aiguillage

Micro-needling

The micro-needling can also be a solution for improving skin texture in patients with less severe scarring. Regardless of the type of treatment recommended, patients should expect to receive a series of several sessions, as the benefits are cumulative.
