There are more ways than ever to treat the scarring that can occur from acne. Over the years, a better understanding of how the skin can be rejuvenated has been inherited by those in the practice of dermatology. The idea behind most treatments is to force the skin to develop new skin cells, and for those new skin cells to occupy the topmost layer of skin. This means fresh looking, smoother skin after such treatments. Our NO-CUT FaceLift is an innovative acne scar treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles as well as acne scars.
What is the NO-CUT FaceLift?
The NO-CUT FaceLift procedure we offer is a one-of-a-kind acne scar treatment that utilizes the power of intense pulsed light (IPL). Intense pulsed light lasers are different from regular lasers used in aesthetic skin procedures. Normal aesthetic lasers release only one wavelength of light. On the other hand, IPL lasers emit laser beams composed of multiple wavelengths of light. This makes them far more versatile, and they can be used on multiple skin tones very successfully. They can also be used to treat skin conditions on a deeper level without causing any injury or negative side-effects.
The pigment cells in your skin will absorb the light rays from the laser. This heats up areas of the skin the laser is applied to. The heat penetrates into the lower layers of the skin, beneath the epidermis. The skin tissue heats up just enough for the body’s immune system to notice, causing the release of healing agents like collagen to be released into the bloodstream. As far as the immune system is concerned, a minor injury has taken place in the skin. It sets out to repair the damage, the way it does with any injury on the skin or any other part of the body.
How Collagen Rejuvenates Skin
Collagen is found everywhere in the human body, but it’s a protein that’s primarily responsible for keeping bodily tissue strong and healthy. The skin, muscles, tendons and bones all need plenty of it to stay strong and useful. It’s almost as if collagen acts as a glue, keeping the body together. As we age, less and less of it is produced by the body, and certain areas of the body begin showing signs of this decline more than others. This can cause wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots on the skin.
The procedure is simple, and can be done in less than an hour. After your skin is cleaned, a cooling gel will be used to lessen the sensation caused by the laser. The IPL laser beam is then applied. When the healing process is triggered with our IPL lasers, the appearance of your acne scars will begin to diminish with time. This is because of the extra collagen, elastin and other healing properties produced by the body that are absorbed by the skin through the blood.
