Though sometimes it may feel as though acne has singled you out, almost 9 out of 10 people between the ages of 12 and 24 have some experience with it, though the severity of the condition varies widely. The acne cycle is often fast enough to interfere with normal healing, resulting in the pits, bumps, and uneven skin tones associated with acne scarring.
While aggressive chemical peels and dermabrasion procedures can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, these carry days or weeks of downtime as your skin recovers. Acne scar damage resides in your skin’s middle layer, so the ideal solution is a treatment that leaves your epidermis (outer layer) undamaged.
The aesthetics professionals at Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group use TempSure® Envi to deliver skin revitalization treatments, including acne scar removal. A monopolar radiofrequency platform, TempSure Envi works through the outer skin layer, focusing its healing energy below the surface to effectively turn back the clock on acne scarring.
Not everyone who gets acne develops scars from it. The severity of your acne seems to stem primarily from genetics and hormonal reactions, and it’s the size of the blemish and the pace at which an outbreak occurs that contribute to scarring.
Deep acne lesions may rupture the walls of skin pores, so infected pus damages tissue below the pore as well as skin on the surface. While your body can repair this damage once the infection subsides, acne outbreaks sometimes come so fast that new damage occurs before previous damage heals.
Collagen is a key component of the dermis, your skin’s middle layer. It’s part of the healing response when acne scars occur, but when there’s deep injury or overlapping infections, the collagen matrix isn’t restored to its normally smooth state. Instead, pits and bumps remain, sometimes with uneven pigmentation that can be red or lighter than your natural skin tone.
Reducing the appearance of acne scars — the depth of the pits and the height of the bumps — requires a controlled re-injury of the dermis layer. TempSure Envi uses gentle heat generated by radio waves, heat that’s absorbed by the collagen tissue in the dermis. As it warms up, your body recognizes the coagulation of collagen cells and begins a natural removal process.
At the same time, the signal goes out to replenish this lost tissue. However, the control offered by TempSure Envi is even and widespread. This gives the new collagen the opportunity to form a matrix that’s more like the pre-acne state, smoother with more even coloration.
Instead of an intense treatment that irritates or damages your epidermis, TempSure Envi is non-invasive and non-damaging to surface skin. Treatments typically take less than one hour, and you can return to your regular activities right away. Most patients compare a TempSure treatment to the feeling of a hot stone massage.
