Acne Scars: What the Cosmetics Companies Aren't Telling You

Posted by Andrew on 09-Aug-2017 15:15:00

When spending your hard-earned cash on scar treatments, you need to ask the following questions: Have the results been proven in reliable clinical studies? What are the side effects? How long will it take to see an improvement in my scars? These are some of the questions we should be asking when finding a solution to scarring from acne. 

When researching treatment for acne scars, you will be confronted with hundreds of creams, lotions and serums promising results for which they simply cannot live up to. Persuasive marketing goes a long way in the competitive landscape of the cosmeceutical world, but what aren’t they telling you?

Posted by Andrew on 23-Jun-2017 09:46:11

Due to the social and psychological effects of acne scarring, many people are not happy with the appearance of their skin. So why do so many people leave it untreated? Which of the top six reasons in this article can you relate to? 

Acne typically rears its head in the adolescent years and paying for effective treatment in your teens or early twenties can be costly and simply not an option for many, especially if you’re on a student or apprentice income. Leaving active acne untreated often leads to scarring – deep crater-style scars, raised scars and discolouration are all the tell-tail signs of previous acne.

Why Sublative Repairs Acne Scars Better Than Ablative Lasers

Posted by Andrew on 12-Jan-2017 06:29:50

CO2 ablative laser resurfacing hit the media years ago for its frequent side effect of hypopigmentation. Side effects were common due to the lasers being slower and hotter than they are today. The technology has improved over the years, however the results from laser resurfacing come at a cost. In addition to hypopigmentation, you can expect pain, significant downtime with redness and swelling lasting from weeks to months along with a high risk of infection and scarring. The traditional (and outdated) view was that the more aggressive the resurfacing, the better the results, however revolutionary radio frequency technology is turning this assumption on its head.

SublativeTM treatment for acne scars uses radio frequency rather than laser and penetrates deep into the dermis whilst leaving the epidermis largely unharmed. This means minimal downtime with maximum effect on the scarred tissue.

The Science Behind The Best Acne & Acne Scar Treatment

Posted by Andrew on 01-Aug-2016 10:05:27

There are many treatment options available to improve the appearance and texture of the skin, or to treat acne and acne scars. The method of choice in the last few years has involved laser technology, either to remove the outer layers of the skin to promote new skin growth (CO2 or Er:YAG), or to penetrate the skin to promote rejuvenation from within (fractional thermolysis).

Although effective for treating a variety of skin conditions, they do have their limitations, and in particular can cause hypopigmentation, areas of uneven skin colour, lasting up to two years after treatment. Fractional lasers were safe, but less effective, and required more treatments to achieve acceptable results.

A more recent development has been fractional thermolysis using radio frequency (RF) energy, instead of laser energy, to stimulate skin rejuvenation that is as effective as laser energy, but has a much lower risk of side effects. The leading device that uses RF energy is the eTwo SublativeTM Skin Treatment System. This article explains the science behind radio frequency energy and why it is effective for acne scar treatment.
