Acne is a skin disorder in which a large amount of sebum is produced, which clogs the pores.
Acne scars are one of the most common complaints in dermatology, affecting between 30% and 95% of people who have suffered from this condition. Fortunately, stem cell treatment has proven its effectiveness in dermatology as it helps to regenerate the skin, eliminate blemishes, scars, and control acne breakouts.
At Stem Life Clinic, we have a treatment protocol with mesenchymal stem cells to treat this dermatological condition and help the patient to recover their self-esteem and quality of life.
Acne is a skin disorder in which a large amount of sebum is produced, which clogs the pores. When these pores become infected by the development of Cutibacterium acnes bacteria, an inflammatory process begins that causes severe itching, red pus pimples, blackheads that give the appearance of dirty skin, among others.
By receiving unprotected solar radiation, the skin affected by acne can become hyperpigmented, giving rise to brown spots. In other cases, atrophic or hypertrophic scars occur, which can cause self-esteem problems.
Conventional treatments for acne scars include pulsed light, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and lasers. However, they are often too invasive, some are painful, satisfactory results are not always obtained, and not all patients are suitable for these treatment options.
The application of mesenchymal stem cells combined with micro needling is a minimally invasive technique that has shown excellent results in atrophic and hypertrophic scars, as well as hyperpigmentation.
Stem cells have an immunomodulatory effect, which helps fight bacteria; It has modulating effects on inflammatory processes in the skin, which will help us control the type of scarring that occurs. In addition, since they can differentiate into different types of cells, they can replace the dermis deep layer´s cells that have been affected by acne and at the same time they will stimulate collagen productionand elastin in the skin, which will give us a radical and important change in the skin´s appearance and health.
It is a minimally invasive treatment, with lasting, natural, and tangible effects; the deeper layers of the skin can be regenerated to treat scars, without painful treatments such as chemical peels that can further damage the skin.
