Patient’s Story: Vlogger Jae Xi
What Is Acne Scar & How Did It Form?
Acne scar is a result of pimples that formed deep in the skin and when popped, result in skin tissue damage. As skin tissues are damaged, our body will naturally release collagen to cover the punctured wounds. This collagen will build up and repair the skin, however, the overlaps of fibrous collagen build-up will result in surfaced scars, darken the skin around the wounds or uneven skin texture.
There are many types of acne scars such as dented, red, flat, or anthropic (surfaced). The solutions for each type of acne scar is different from the others, so there’s really no way to decide on what is the best solution for the overall acne scar problem.
Of course, the best solution to acne scar is to reduce the risk of it forming in the first place. If you are having a severe acne breakout, we would recommend meeting up with one of our expert doctors to examine the cause of the problem and suggest the best solution for you.
As for Jae Xi, she is currently struggling with hyperpigmentation acne scar, which causes her skin to have different shades of colours. It is easily covered by make-up, however, in the long run, we would advise everyone who has the same problem to seek professional help as soon as possible.
What Are Available Solutions?
There are many solutions available in the market to get rid of acne scars. First of all, we would ask you to come and have a FREE consultation session with our expert doctor to assess your problem and only then we can recommend the best treatments for you.
Among effective treatments available are:
Exposing your skin to energy-based laser frequency will enable your skin to boost its collagen production. It works by creating new collagen beneath the surface of the skin, thus smoothens skin texture and colour.
For dented acne scars, we would recommend doing filler (Hyaluronic acid or bio-stimulator). It helps in filling in the gaps in indented skin and actively boosting collagen production from within.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses the healing properties of your own blood to rejuvenate skin from within. Suitable for every type of scar, with no downtime.
It may look like a roll with microneedles attached to it. It functions as opening the skin up for small wounds. It works by stimulating collagen production to smoothen the skin textures, look and radiate skin.
More suitable for a deep acne scar, this minor surgical technique breaks up the band of fibrous tissues and increases collagen production from within.
Suitable for hyperpigmented acne scars, this treatment utilises laser beams to remove the upper layer of the pigmented skin.
To help Jae Xi, we suggested she do PRP to improve her overall look. PRP treatment was fairly simple. Sample blood was extracted and then put into a centrifuge to help separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma.
The plasma was then injected into Jae Xi’s face to help solve her acne scar problem. Jae Xi was very happy with her treatment, you may see her testimonial video as below:
