Acne scarring comes in many forms, from red macular spots to depressed acne scars, ice pick acne scars, atrophic and deep depressed acne scarring… but you do not need to suffer in silence any more as help is available!We assess each case individually to determine the most suitable treatment, depending on how deep the scarring is. We generally recommend 3D RF (radio frequency) needling.
Other non-laser treatment options you might have heard of include non surgical skin needling and microneedling. Additionally, there are laser treatments and injectables.
Each is more suitable for certain types of scarring, however it’s 3D RF needling that we find has the broadest applications and is most effective for a variety of skin types and conditions.
How does 3D RF needling work?
This treatment can be performed by therapists and doctors. It combines two technologies – Microneedling and radio frequency.
The radio frequency energy targets specific zones, which also makes 3D RF needling a highly effective method for treating ageing, sagging skin and one which can also relieve inflammation, excessive sebum secretion, hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis.
It works by delivering thermal energy deep into the dermis – the thick layer of tissue below the epidermis, or outer surface layer of the skin – to effectively stimulate collagen production by creating minor punctures to the skin. When collagen is being produced, the skin texture will improve and minimises the appearance of scarring.
The 3D RF needling procedure
Firstly, we have to apply a topical numbing gel to minimise any discomfort, because the micro needling tips penetrate the skin, so that the radio frequency energy is delivered where it will be most effective.
We perform the treatment with 49 gold-plated insulated microneedle tips which can penetrate deep into the dermis to ensure that collagen will be produced.
After, we introduce Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment, which evens out the scarring on the surface of the skin, meaning the combined treatment impacts from deep in the dermis to the superficial epidermis.
Why is the treatment so effective?
The key to the effectiveness of Dr Dream’s 3D RF needling treatment is that it stimulates collagen production, which a lot of other treatments do not do.
That’s why it helps with fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, pore size, lacklustre skin, sagging of the skin and overall skin rejuvenation.
Each treatment takes around two hours, including numbing.
After needling, the skin is red for two to three days, but you can go to work with make up on, however, recovery from skin resurfacing takes about seven to ten days with no makeup applied.
It’s one of the most effective treatments you can get, and the results are amazing.
