Have acne scars been bothering you for years? Want them gone for good? Dr. Jason Emer has treated countless patients who wanted to get rid of their scars and has developed highly refined and innovative methods to help patients attain their aesthetic goals.
No other cosmetic dermatologist approaches acne scar treatments with the same pioneering mindset and individualized approach as Dr. Jason Emer of Beverly Hills, CA. After successfully treating numerous patients, he realized that the most effective way to improve acne scars is through individualized blends of cutting-edge treatments that maximize results and minimize downtime. One of these innovative combinations involves radiofrequency microneedling and dermal fillers.
How Radiofrequency Microneedling Addresses Acne Scars
Dr. Emer uses InMode Fractora to treat acne scars. In this procedure, the treatment area is penetrated with a microneedling device to trigger pinpoint bleeding and stimulate new collagen production. This highly effective treatment can be done frequently, with minimal pain and downtime.
Microneedling is combined with RF, so the power of radiofrequency energy is delivered into the skin, increasing collagen production and promoting healing to an even higher degree. The energy level can be adjusted according to the severity of the scars.
InMode Fractora is at the cutting edge of RF microneedling technology. The non-invasive fractional skin remodeling and microneedling device treats scarring and irregularities by sending RF energy deep into the subdermal layers to stimulate collagen production and thicken subdermal tissue, resulting in tightened skin, improved complexion, and a reduction in pore size.
Treating Acne Scars with Dermal Fillers
To treat acne scars, dermal fillers such as silicone, Bellafill, Belotero Balance, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Voluma, Renuva and Sculptra can be used to raise the scar tissue and give them a smoother appearance.
Other filler options include natural body fat, and Volbella. This treatment, though, is typically used in combination with lasers, microneedling and sometimes TCA CROSS (trichloroacetic acid chemical reconstruction of skin scars) for optimal results.
Dr. Emer will make specific product recommendations during the consultation phase based on each patient’s unique needs and skin type. Treatment is customized to meet the specific type of scarring involved.
Generally, the process involves making subcisions under the scar tissue to break the bonds that weigh the skin down. Filler is used to stimulate collagen, lift the scar and provide long-term structure that can improve the scar’s appearance.
Afterwards, stem cells and PRP are injected into living tissue to help build and remodel damaged areas, for natural improvements over time.
How Subcision Addresses Acne Scars
Acne scars are formed when the top layer of skin is being pulled down, which creates a divot or dent and a shadow. With subcision, Dr. Emer inserts a blunt cannula under the surface of the scar to release the top layer of the skin, which breaks up the scar and allows Dr. Emer to then use lasers, microneedling and fillers to minimize the depth of the scar divot or dent.
