Acne Scar Treatment and Collagen Biostimulation Lift
Acne scars can affect many facets of your life. Be it work, school, or socializing, there’s no place more visible than your face and the impact these scars can have on your life is brutal. Thankfully, there are ways to remediate these unsightly scars to restore a smooth, youthful, and healthy appearance to the skin… but don’t go booking surgery just yet!
In this article, we’re going to give you the facts that you need to make the right decision for you. We’ll go over the current surgical options available, as well as non-surgical and non-invasive ones such as Acne Scar Treatment and Collagen Biostimulation lifts, so that you can know all about the most popular options that you have at your disposal.
Along with these comparisons, we’ll also talk about VSoft PDO threads so that you’ll understand the lift procedure at a more granular level – through the types of threads that make this treatment possible..
Without further ado, let’s talk about turning back time to make those acne scars a thing of the past!
Surgical vs. Non-surgical treatments — Why PDO is the way to go!
Both surgical and non-surgical approaches may be used to treat acne scars and they both have their perks and caveats. In order to paint a better picture of the options that you have at your disposal, we’ll talk about them and give you an idea of what is involved, as well as the expected recovery times.
Surgery is definitely an option with acne scars and at one time, it was the ONLY option. There are two main ways that this is typically done, those being ‘dermabrasion’ and ‘punch excision’. We’ll take a look at each and their pros and cons.
Dermabrasion doesn’t involve cutting, but it falls into the surgical category as ‘skin-smoothing surgery’. The way that it is done is that a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist will use a specialized tool that is motorized and essentially ‘sands’ the skin to smoothness. This is done sometimes simply to smooth the skin, but also in treatments for acne scarring. With deep scarring, however, it may need to be done in stages, so this option may well take some time. As far as recovery, typically the patient will need to wear a bandage, as the skin will be red and puffy following the procedure. The skin will heal as it scabs, but it will usually be about 2 weeks before it fully heals and several weeks or even months before you can see the full results of the procedure.
Punch Excision is an acne scar treatment used for a specific type of scarring, known as ‘ice pick scars’. Ice pick scars present as narrow, but deep scar openings on the face, which are typically on the temples or the cheeks. The punch excision tool takes a ‘biopsy’ sample of skin from the deep scar, by means of a circular punch shape on the tool. By excising along the length of the scar, the physician is able to then suture it and this turns the ‘deep’ scar into something much narrower and more superficial. The wound may take up to 3 months to heal, although within a 4-week period further treatments such as laser resurfacing may be employed to help further reduce the visibility of the ameliorated ice pick scar.
While this is an excellent treatment, it can be quite expensive, as the procedure is typically billed per each individual scar and further treatment, such as laser resurfacing, may be required with deeper, more pronounced scarring. That said, it is permanent, with the only remaining caveat being the 3-month recovery time.
Now that we’ve looked at the primary surgical options, let’s look at the less-invasive ways to deal with acne scars that can also get you excellent results. We’ll go over their perks and also the expected recovery time to help you to full understanding of what each has to offer.
Microdermabrasion is similar to dermabrasion, but on a smaller scale. The tool that the physician uses is still ‘sanding’ the surface, but it is much less abrasive. Patients have described it as feeling like a ‘tugging’ sensation or a ‘gritty’ face massage. Recovery is fast – typically around 24 hours – although multiple treatments are typically required for deep scarring. Microdermabrasion may also be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers, also called ‘soft-tissue fillers’, are another option that you can use for remediating acne scars. The way that it works is that a dermal filler is injected under the skin, so that the scar may be ‘raised’ to a level where it is less apparent on the face. The most common types of fillers are as follows:
· Hyaluronic acid – Examples of this filler include Juvederm and Restylane.
· Polymethyl methacrylate microspheres with collagen – Also known as Bellafill, this FDA-approved option can give permanent results, but may not be the best option for all types of scarring.
· Poly-L-Lactic acid – An example of Poly-L-Lactic acid filler is Sculptra.
· Autologous fat transfer – With Autologous fat transfer, the filler material is simply fat taken from the patient and injected into the acne scars.
Typically, these fillers will also help to stimulate collagen, to improve the appearance and health of the skin. While Bellafill is permanent, the other options will typically last for between 6 months to 2 years. Recovery time is minimal, typically 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.
Ablative Laser Resurfacing is like a high-tech, non-invasive, and much more elegant form of dermabrasion. Sometimes called a ‘laser peel’, it is performed by means of a wand that removes old skin cells and by reducing the upper layers of skin, acne scars become less apparent and the youthful skin cells help to heal and to refresh the skin’s appearance. This treatment is permanent for acne scars, although a lot will depend on the types of scars and how the skin heals. As far as the recovery stage, new skin typically covers the treated area within 1 to 2 weeks, although a full recovery time is generally considered to be 1 month.
PDO Acne Scar and Collagen Biostimulation lifts
PDO Acne Scar and Collagen Biostimulation lifts are by far the most popular non-invasive option for acne scars. The way that this non-invasive treatment works is that the patient is given a topical numbing cream and once this takes effect, then a mesh grid of PDO (polydioxanone) threads are inserting in a mesh grid. The means of insertion is a very thin cannula and while the physician is putting the threads in place, the cannula may also be used to help to gently subcase the fibrous scar tissue. This allows for dislodging the patient’s scars at deeper levels of the skin.
Once the threads tightly in place, they form a mesh support network, keeping the skin smooth and tight. Over time, as the PDO threads dissolve, they stimulate collagen production and improve the health and pallor of the skin in the process.
While results will be apparent right away, the full benefits will be seen at around 6 weeks, as the biostimulation rejuvenates the skin. Results with standard PDO threads may typically last for 1 year to 18 months, although quality threads such as VSoft Lift may last as long as 2 years!
The reasons why this is the number 1 preferred acne scar treatment basically boil down to the following:
· It is more cost-effective than other treatments.
· Results are immediate and long-lasting (especially with quality PDO threads like VSoft Lift).
· Recovery time is 24 hours, with no strenuous activities recommended for 2 – 3 weeks.
· The whole process typically takes less time than your average lunchbreak.
Request VSoft PDO threads for faster recover and longer-lasting results
If Acne Scar Treatment and Collagen Biostimulation lift with PDO threads has piqued your interest or if you are a physician who performs lifts at their practice, then we highly recommend that you consider asking for the best – Vsoft PDO Lift threads.
Thebenefits are numerous, and they are outlined in full in VSoft’s Injector’s Brochure, but we can give you an at-a-glance view of the many benefits of these quality threads:
· Tensile strength – As VSoft threads are produced via the largest PDO thread manufacturer in the world, they have 10 -20 times more tensile strength than other PDO threads on
the market. This means they are stronger, less threads are required, results are longer-lasting, and recovery time is FASTER.
· Multi-layer effects – At the intradermal level, collagen stimulation is achieved, and blood flow and metabolism are greatly improved at the area of treatment. This induces
neocollagenesis for superior collagen production that is the highest for any PDO threads on the market. At the subdermal layer, natural lipolysis is stimulated in the fat compartment, decreasing adipocytes so that the adipose tissue is decreased.
· Superior fixation – Vsoft’s proprietary threads, both the barbed and molded, provide superior fixation and hold. Along with the aforementioned improved tensile strength, less threads are required for every lift procedure than you would use with a lesser PDO thread from competitors.
· Precision cannulas – Each VSoft PDO thread is pre-loaded in a diamond cut, stainless steel precision cannula.
