Removing the painful reminders of acne
Approximately 95% of people with acne vulgaris will suffer from scarring following the initial acne inflammation. Most common are trophic acne scars caused by collagen loss during the healing process. These depressed scars can be further classified into icepick, boxcar and rolling types. Hypertrophic acne scars, caused by increased collagen content are considered less common.
The JVR Acne Scars treatment can help improve the appearance of all acne scar subtypes. It is suitable for all skin types, requires minimal downtime and can be carried out year-round.
The JVR Acne Scars treatment works by using pneumatic acceleration of high-mass hyaluronic acid (HA) particles. These particles penetrate the epidermis through a tiny, micro-sized entry point. Once the solution reaches the dermal layer, it spreads laterally, causing a subcision effect, or a break in the scar’s fibrotic strands, which tie the scar to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. This releases the scar tissue, allowing the fibroblast cells to form a new connective tissue and generate new collagen during the course of natural wound healing. This is combined with a dermal filler effect. The filler optimized for acne scars improves the way the body responds to the healing process, producing a synergic effect enhancing the desired result. The filler raise the scars to the level of the surrounding skin, obtaining a smoother look and feel.
