A new and effective ALTERNATIVE in acne scar therapy.
“Acne is a common disorder experienced by up to 80% of people between 11 and 30 years of age. For most patients acne remains a nuisance. For other less fortunate persons, the severe inflammatory response to bacteria (propionibacterium acnes) results in permanent disfiguring scars. Stigma of severe acne can lead to social ostracism, withdrawal from society, and severe psychologic depression.” (Carolyn I. Jacob et al, 2001, Acne scarring).
About ACNE SCARS
Scars are wound closures by the body's own connective tissue, so-called fibrosis. Depending on their formation, extension and localization scars can be very painful – even for many years. Especially visible scars, such as ACNE SCARS, are an aesthetic disfigurement. So far the medical school of thought for scar treatment is clear: “VERY DIFFICULT”! Or in simple words: There is no effective therapy for all scar types. - But this was yesterday!
HOW DOES THE DERMAROLLER WORK ON SCARS?
MECHANISM of ACTION IN SCAR TREATMENT
Fine microneedles perforate the scar tissue. The physician will notice a higher resistance when the needles penetrate the hard scar tissue. Also the patient can notice a slight cracking noise when the needles penetrate the scar tissue.
After a sufficient perforation (about 15 to 20 passes over the scar) very fine petechiae (blood spots, but no bleeding) will be visible on the skin.
Only a few days after the treatment NEW fibroblasts and capillaries will migrate through the punctured scar tissue. Both processes result in new tissue formation to “fill” the former atrophic scar and new capillaries result in a significant better blood supply that in return results in an improved re-pigmentation.
