4 Ways To Treat Scarring In Your Clinic

In our latest Skin Rejuvenation Series, we pinpoint 4 scar-reducing methods and the types of scars they treat.

1. Fractional Radiofrequency (RF)

Effective for: Superficial scarring, hypertrophic scarring, deep atrophic/pitted scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks
Find it in: Divine PRO

Fractional RF technology is ideal for treating both superficial scarring, static lines, hypertrophic scarring and even deeper atrophic scars. Difficult to address with more traditional treatments, hypertrophic scars are raised above the skin and need to be treated at the dermal level. Atrophic scars cause injury to the deeper dermal layers, resulting in a sunken appearance. They are a common side effect of cystic acne lesions, chicken pox, impact trauma or surgery. On the body, atrophic scars often result from weight loss or post pregnancy stretchmarks.

VoluDerm™ is an advanced form of Fractional RF, exclusively available in the Divine PRO and Legend devices from Pollogen. Combining the application of fractional microneedles with RF energy, VoluDerm™ induces micro-wounds and double action collagen regeneration benefits that leave scarred and hyperpigmented areas of the face and body clearer and smoother with each subsequent treatment. This allows clinicians to achieve dramatic and industry leading results in scar reduction, dermal volumising, wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation.

2. IPL Skin Rejuvenation

Effective for: Superficial scarring
Find it in: LUX Series IPL machines

IPL skin rejuvenation technology is great for repairing the effects of superficial injury to the skin, such as the red, hyperpigmented marks left behind from acne vulgaris. The IPL light generates heat to trigger a wound healing response, which stimulates collagen production, refining skin tone and texture and paving the way for  new, clear and healthy skin to form.

3. Hydrodermabrasion

Effective for: Superficial scarring
Find it in: Bio-Hydroderm Trinity™

Hydrodermabrasion is a popular treatment for superficial acne scarring. The Bio-Hydroderm Trinity™ works by passing a diamond-encrusted wand over the skin to remove the stratum corneum. This removal of the dead, outer layer of skin prompts an accelerated response in the formation of fresh and healthy skin cells, resulting in the gradual fade and reduction of acne marks, blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Hydrodermabrasion is preferable over traditional microdermabrasion treatment as the abrasion levels can be adjusted, and the skin is also simultaneously infused with nourishing skin corrective fluids to hydrate treated skin and reduce irritation.

4. Skin Needling

Effective for: Superficial scarring, hypertrophic scarring, atrophic/pitted scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks
Find it in: Dermal Pen PRO

Skin needling is one of the most widely used treatments to improve a variety of scars — from superficial, hypertrophic and atrophic acne scars, to surgical scars and even stretch mark scars. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) inflicts controlled injuries to the dermal layers, stimulating new collagen to help fill in the scarred areas. Our Dermal Pen PRO allows skin therapists to adjust the needle length in accordance with the depth and severity of the scar. Osculating pins allow for superior scar tissue penetration and improvement compared to dermal rollers.
