Sublative radiofrequency is the most effective treatment for acne scar removal. What you see on the surface is just the tip of the iceberg. Acne scars are deep in the dermis therefore the more traditional treatments (chemical peels, and microderm abrasion) are too superficial and do not have long term results. Acne scars require an energy that can penetrate to those depths while causing minimal damage to the surface of the skin. Sublative radio frequency achieves this by causing damage to the scar tissue deep in the dermis leaving a light temporary blemish on the surface. This blemish will disappear in as little as 3-7 days. “Social” down time is minimal and the treatment area can be covered with makeup. Proper maintenance of the skin between treatments is necessary to prevent further scar causing acne.
