Acne & Scars Aesthetic Medicine

I am 33 years old, and I have some acne scars at my temple and cheek area. I heard Intracel can help to reduce the scars. I was wondering if Intracel is the most effective treatment? If yes, how much does Intracel treatment cost in Singapore? I would also appreciate any additional advice on what may be other more effective treatments that are suitable for my condition. Thank you :)

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hello Jingjing

Thank you for your question. From the picture it looks like you have a mixture of acne scars (ice pick/ rolling/ boxcar) and acne marks.

There are many ways of dealing with acne scarring and Intracel is just one of them

  • Fractional ablative laser resurfacing (CO2/ Erbium) 
  • Microneedling radiofrequency device (Infini/ Venus Viva/ Intracel) 
  • TCA cross 
  • Needle subcision
  • PDRN/ PN microinjection (Rejuran) 

Some treatments will be more suitable for certain scar types (TCA cross for ice pick scars, Laser resurfacing / Microneedling RF for rolling and boxcar scars, needle subcision for tethered scars etc) and most people will need a combination of treatments to get the best result.

Treatment will have to be customised according to your skin type, lifestyle and the downtime you can afford. Speak to a doctor to get an accurate assessment of your condition first before proceeding with your treatment. All the best!

Regards,

Dr Jiwei Wu

Dear Jingjing

Based on your pictures, I am more of the opinion that the cheek scars should be the main priority. The un-even appearance is due to the rolling scars and I would recommend that the first line treatment is to do Subcision of the underlying scars with some filler instillation to reduce risk of scar reattachment.

My personal practice is that if there are rolling scars, to solve that first and that usually improves the patients' appearance significantly.

Other treatments for the superficial scars be it TCA Cross or lasers as what Dr Wu has mentioned can be done concurrently OR at a separate sitting.
