At AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, we use laser to treat acne scars to reduce their visual impact. Both Dr Selvam and Dr Nirmala, renowned cosmetic surgeons, have over 20 years of experience in this field.
AKJ Skin and Laser Centre is the sole clinic in Tamil Nadu to get Fraxel and UltraPulse machine. These two laser systems are the most advanced scar revision technologies used across the world. These machines are available only at select laser and cosmetic clinics in India and across the globe.
Acne causes altered collagen because of inflammation and leads to skin depression. Acne scars are best treated with a laser. The laser doesn't harm the skin around it. When applied to a spot, the heat energy produced by laser promotes collagen formation, eventually leading to the area's remodelling. That being said, lasers pose no threat whatsoever and are safe to use.
At AKJ, we offer two systems for addressing various acne-scarring conditions:
In terms of scar revision, these systems are globally recognised as the most advanced. Each of these lasers is effective and harmless to the skin.
Fraxel uses a laser split into thousands of tiny beams to create these MicroThermal Zones, which look like little dots or pixels on the skin (MTZs).
These MTZs act like an ablative laser, penetrating deep into the skin to destroy the old cells. The laser only harms the specific MTZs it is aimed at, leaving the rest of the tissue unharmed. Because of this, the skin can heal much more quickly than if the entire epidermis were removed, as would happen with an ablative laser. Any aesthetic CO2 laser does not match the UltraPulse system's penetration depth. The ratio of ablation to coagulation is also excellent.
The controlled micro-injuries created by these treatments leave a healthy margin of skin unharmed and ensure rapid recovery with little to no downtime. The subsequent production of collagen replaces the damaged tissue, lessening and, in some cases, eliminating the appearance of scars. Before performing any procedure, the dermatologists at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre will examine the patient's medical records and perform a physical examination.
