Acne can be a problematic condition for many people, especially women. For many people, the problem is choosing between a treatment that may or may not work and other forms which will permanently leave scars on your skin. However, there is a new form of treatment known as RF technology for acne scars or the Fractional Radio Frequency treatment which can help reduce these scars. Lasers as well as peels too have a positive result as an acne care treatment.
What is Radio Frequency Treatment?
RF technology uses microscopic needles to penetrate the deep layers of skin. Then pulses of energy which generate heat are used to break down the scar tissue, where new skin can grow easily. This is a much gentler process and a better form of rejuvenation of skin than other forms of treatment which may damage your skin. It works better than the laser surgery for skin lightening.
How it Works?
RF technology uses microscopic needles as mentioned above and cause minute breakdowns of skin tissues in the affected area. However, since the needles are very small and are added with the high energy pulse, it ensures that the skin breakdown is in a specific pattern. This is such a pattern that once new skin grows in its place and heals, it becomes indistinguishable from the unaffected areas that surround it. This technology works out as a treatment for hyper pigmentation, skin tightening, scar and mole removal as well.
How many sittings are required?
Although this depends on the extent of the scars, usually, up to five sittings are recommended. It could be more or less depending on the amount of work required on the skin for acne treatment or the scar treatment.
What is the recovery period like?
The skin may become red for a few days after the treatment, although this only happens in very few cases and should be considered normal. It will go away on its own within a few days. Usually any inflammation or redness goes away in the first 48 hours and you can have new looking skin by that time.
