Best methods how to treat acne scars- (by Dr Liv Kraemer)


Hello guys talking about scars, acne scars and how to get rid of them. Stay with me if you want to know more, okay? Hello my name is Dr. Liv Kraemer, but actually everybody is calling me Dr. Liv I’m sitting right now in my beautiful office here in Zurich, and I thought okay Let’s do a couple of videos Some topics came in mind because some of my patients asked me and so I decided to talk about Acne Scars because most of you guys who had acne and who couldn’t take their hands out of your face because you started picking Unfortunately there are scars developed, and what are scars? Think about , that there are two parts and if the parts are cut into 2 pieces They’re pulling apart, so what’s happening? Your body is very very intelligent The body don’t want to get these parts far away from each other because then a lot of bacteria can go into your body So the skin is a protective layer and your body wants to keep it this way therefore it want to keep it smooth and very stable and therefore closed so what’s happening if you cut yourself and cutting means: from the outside or by disruption from the inside after pimples So these two parts they would be separated Because of shear stress. So they would pull apart from each other, so now your body thinks: help help destruction we don’t want to pull these two parts away from each other suddenly the police is coming and all are Helping to produce a certain substance called the not good collagen because the fibers are not cross-linked They’re more like parallel so suddenly you see a scar tissue The scar tissue does not have hair. It does not have any sweat glands It looks just like kind of glue And in fact it is kind of a glue because your body do not want to glue these parts as quick as possible together So it’s cars developing, and if you cut yourself of course. This is happening and cutting from inside out It’s the same so if you’re kind of suffering from acne, and there’s a huge kind of inflammation underneath and if you are trying to just get this junk out, you are you actually hurting your skin and Suddenly it becomes a channel out where it doesn’t suppose to be going out and suddenly the skin thinks: help destruction!!! and is trying to seal it so a scars is developing unfortunately as you guys know with time, with age these scars Particular the acne scars in the face are becoming worse so unfortunately there is nothing on earth which is removing scars But there’s hope because there are some methods which Making scars looking better, so that most of the time you will not see them particular if you do something as soon as possible so Let’s talk about Acne scars. So scars are like icebergs. There are two ways of scars either hypertrophic like iceberg or hypotrophic which go inside. But let’s make it easier. It is like an iceberg So what you try to do? You try to destroy this iceberg with a ice pick So with the pick water come out this iceberg and it gets flatter the same way it is happening with your skin because as soon as you are hitting it with Micro needling these are needles for example So if you’re having small little needles almost like acupuncture needles, then you’re actually hitting the skin and a very defined depth, please just let this do from a Dermatologist with you, because if you are not using proper medical Micro needles you can harm your skin But you don’t want to harm your skin, you want to actually get an impulse. What does it mean? So let’s go back, as i dont want to confuse you. You want to get these hard hard scar to get smoother and this you do- as I said – like with the iceberg. So the micro needling is going into the skin The skin again thinks: oh my good DISTRACTION and is producing growth factors and Because there is no pulling apart because it’s just a stimulus right there is nothing to repair We just do as there would be a damage, but the skin is not really damaged and so the skin has time to produce the good right collagen and this scar becomes softer and less visible and there are different other method. For example there is a fracture laser, which means with the heat they try to do small holes into the skin and keep the heat in the depth to get a Tightening because collagen is like a spiral and it’s enlarged. With the heat you shrink it. It’s like washing your dress hot Ideally is not using a fraction laser. I Love the micro needling radiofrequency method. What does it mean? It is an old method now a medical device -so it has to be done by a dermatologist- and if the needle is inside there is a heat impulse and through the heat impulse you get a shrinkage of the collagen, therefore a tightening. So with age the scar is very hard and the elasticity is lost So with this method the tissue gets softer and tighter and suddenly you see the scar less summarizing I like really using for acne scars with no kind of Inflamed regions, so no heavy acne. So it’s the end of the acne. It is just finished. You just have the scars left, the icebergs. These you can kind of gets softer and less visible With this dermatological medical devices called microneedling and in combination with a heat called radiofrequency ii is a great option to treat scars. But speak to dermatologist about what he thinks is best for your skin because we know the best way to really get the best treatment and the best result out of it So don’t try something from the internet, please! Please girls and guys don’t do this, go to your dermatologist and get some advice ok, thanks so much Subscribe to my channel, give me some likes guys Follow me on my social media like Instagram #drliv I hope I give you some nice information Dr. Liv.. because I just love beauty …ok bye guys
