Active breakouts are frustrating enough, but the scars acne can leave behind can feel downright diabolical. The good news is that acne scars can be treated.
Scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it.
Before you try to treat your scars, it’s important to know what type they are. Each type responds to treatment differently, and some treatments are better for particular types than others.
Sublative Rejuvenation is an advanced treatment that uses bipolar radiofrequency for the treatment of scars, wrinkles and for improving overall skin texture. Sublative rejuvenation combats acne scarring by stimulating collagen and elastin production beneath the skin, without disturbing the outer top layer. As a result, the increased collagen and elastin helps to reduce the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles, and as the top layer of your skin isn’t affected, there is minimal downtime and irritation.

Before and Afters
Sublative Rejuvenation for acne scars is a very straight forward procedure and can be preformed on all skin colours. There are 3 different programs with varying depths of radio frequency to treat a number of different indications. For scars, the treatment is deeper as scars typically run deep.
