Treatment options to reduce acne scars

acne scars

The impact of acne extends beyond its physical effects. Most patients report experiencing embarrassment, diminished self-confidence, and feeling self-conscious in social or professional situations due to the appearance of outbreaks. For many people, the cosmetic and emotional effects do not end when the skin clears. Severe acne can leave lasting, often highly visible, scars. Fortunately, today’s advanced medical technology has brought us a minimally invasive and highly effective way to reduce acne scarring.

Patients from Essex Fells, Montclair, and other communities throughout NJ come to image Dermatology® for INTRAcel acne scar treatment. It combines the benefits of micro needling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, for a uniquely gentle and effective procedure. Acne scars can be improved, usually enough that they are not noticeable.

What is fractional RF?

This innovative system delivers therapeutic energy directly to the ideal skin layer, in the targeted area for optimal efficiency. Microneedles safely and gently penetrate the epidermal layer. This stimulates collagen rejuvenation, and opens microchannels to deeper skin layers. The insulated needles also carry RF energy directly to deep tissue, allowing it to bypass the uppermost layers.

Erasing the signs of acne

Fractional RF has many therapeutic applications, and it is particularly well suited for the reduction of acne scars. It creates a thermal reaction that releases existing collagen fibers while stimulating the rapid development of healthy, new collagen.

The benefits include:

  • Safe and gentle treatment with minimal discomfort
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Little to no downtime
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars
  • Improve overall skin texture and health
