ACNE AND SCAR REMOVAL
Acne may be caused by a lot of things: hormonal changes (like in puberty or pregnancy), stress, unhealthy skin habits (such as use of different skin products and make-up, and not being able to effectively cleanse your skin regularly), among a lot of things. These acne may then result to acne scarring. Both acne and scars can result to unwarranted frustration to the person suffering from it.
Break free from this useless stress and rid yourself of acne and scars right now. The Setiba Aesthetics Group of board-certified doctors and skin experts are waiting to assist you in all your skin imperfections and aesthetic goals.

How can Acne Scars be treated?
Acne scars are the indentations in the skin that follows pimple or acne eruptions. Cystic acne and pimple outbreaks after all, can result in significant damage to the skin. This damage does not only limit itself to the upper layers of the skin, but it may also disrupt collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for healing our skin of impurities and keeping it well-moisturized. It also ensures the skin’s elasticity and firmness, which explains how the loss or decline of collagen production may lead to scarring, wrinkles, and sagging of skin.
Acne scars can be small indentations like small craters or they can also be broad and wide (these scars are called “rolling hill” scars). All types of scars, though, may benefit for the Setiba Aesthetics Group’s acne and scar removal treatments.
The Setiba Aesthetics Group is equipped with the latest technology when it comes to the application of fractional laser and resurfacing technologies in order to improve and lighten the appearance of acne scars. Our skin experts determine the best combination of treatments in order to ensure that each patient receives a high quality skin-treatment tailor-made for them. Acne treatments in order to make sure that acne doesn’t return and the skin remains smooth and clear are also given in tandem with the scar removal sessions.
Is the treatment painful?
Reports of our previous patients say that each of the procedures done in our acne scar removal treatments can be well-tolerated. However, we still provide topical anesthesia, and even inject local anesthesia, when needed in order to make the treatment more comfortable for our patients.
How long does the treatment take?
Each session may range from fifteen minutes up to an hour or more depending on how large the area that needs to receive treatment is. The number of sessions it takes to clear out the acne and scars also varies from patient to patient. On the average, a patient may require three to six sessions, one every three to six weeks. Each treatment will be determined by the severity of the acne and scarring as well as the specific aesthetic goals of each client. Hence, a thorough consultation must be done first before any treatment is given.
