Acne scars are permanent indentation on the skin. As these marks are very difficult to get rid of, suffering from uneven complexion caused by acne scars can affect some of us psychologically.

In order to treat acne scars, a methodical approach must be taken to ensure a higher chance of success of smoothing out acne marks on the skin.

In Radium Medical Aesthetics, we designed a 5-step acne scar treatment framework to methodically treat your scars more effectively and accurately. The steps are: ASSESS, MEASURE, DESIGN, TREAT, REVIEW.

Acne Scar Framework: ASSESS

The marks on your face is very unique, just like your fingerprints. No two people are identical and have the same acne marks. By adopting this acne scar framework, our doctors have taken on a systematic approach by evaluating the size, location, texture and depth of each scar tissue during the assessment phase.

This is why before we start each treatment, it must begin with examination of the skin. A detailed map of your acne scars and their severity will be mapped out.

Acne Scar Framework: MEASURE

Next, we measure the skin thickness, and the nature and depth of the scar tissue with ultrasound imaging system.
With a better understanding of the skin thickness, our doctors are able to more accurately determine the types of treatment modality to adopt to ensure the safest, yet effective treatments for the scars.

Measuring the skin thickness and depth of scar tissue also allows the doctors to precisely target the scars at the right depth during treatment.

Acne Scar Framework: DESIGN

With a thorough understanding of your acne scars and your skin thickness, our doctors are now able to design a truly customised programme with a range of acne star treatments such as subcision, Genius microneedling radiofrequency, fractional lasers and injectables.
During this design phase, we work closely with you to design a programme that takes your lifestyle, expectations and budget into consideration.

Acne Scar Framework: TREAT

It is only after these careful planning steps that we start to treat the scars. Depending on the severity of the scars and your lifestyle, your customised treatment plan can take several weeks or months to complete.
Some treatments such as Genius radiofrequency microneedling and skin resurfacing lasers often require multiple sessions to achieve the best results.
As this is a long journey to a smoother, more beautiful skin, both you and the doctor must be committed to go on this journey together.

Acne Scar Framework: REVIEW

Along the way at different checkpoints, the doctor will review your progress, evaluating and monitoring the improvement of your acne scars and skin texture at regular intervals and at the end of the programme.
Treating acne scars is a long journey. But the road ahead does not have to be scary and uncertain. Because everyone is different, we need to design an acne scar treatment programme especially customised for you in order to give you the best possible results.

With a systematic approach to treating acne scars, you can be assured that you will receive the best care, achieving the best results with minimal complications.
