Abstract
Acne scarring is the most frequent complication of acne that significantly affects the quality of life in adolescent age group. The impact on physical and psychosocial well-being of the sufferers is also affected. Nearly 80% of acne scars are seen in 11-30 years of age. Delayed in initiation of treatment of acne scars or inappropriate treatment further complicates the scenario. Treatment modality can also be categorized as energy and non-energy based. Fractional microneedling radiofrequency (MNRF) is a promising ablative approach. It utilizes radio frequency energy to penetrate deep in the dermis without causing significant injury to epidermis. The small wounds close immediately but the mechanical injury initiates wound healing process and collagen remodelling. Hence we conducted this study to analyse the efficacy of Microneedling radiofrequency for the treatment of acne scars.
Aim and Objectives: To study the outcome of Fractional microneedling radiofrequency in acne scars.
Material and Methods: 15 patients with acne scars were included for the study and microneedling radiofrequency was done using ENSEMBLE MNRF machine- manufactured by Bison, Korea- FDA approved – BS-IS-25.
Results: 73.4% patients showed good improvement in the reduction of acne scars with very less downtime.
Conclusion: Fractional Microneedling Radiofrequency is more effective in treating acne scars with decreased downtime. The response may vary with machines. Further continuation of treatment might help to achieve a better outcome as scars only modify but never disappear completely.
