What causes acne?

SUN, POLUTION, STRESS, HORMONES

Acne is primarily caused by hormones, occurring when hormonal levels are out of whack , such as during puberty, pregnancy, and premenstrual syndrome.  There are other causes of acne as well, such as sun exposure (UV radiation), stress, and pollution.  

At our Acne Treatment Toronto Clinic, we treat all types of acne using laser and radiofrequency devices to effectively kill active acne bacteria and to remodel the skin texture to diminish the look of acne scars.

Is RF Microneedling an Effective Acne Treatment?

RF Microneedling can help active acne and acne scars by promoting the growth of new skin cells through the increased production of collagen and elastin. It can reduce acne from forming by reducing sebum production, which causes oily skin.  The reduction of sebum will cause the reduction of whiteheads, blackheads, and cystic acne.

In a recent study with 25 patients with moderate to severe facial acne, all were enrolled in a clinical trial in the use of RF or radiofrequency microneedling to gauge the effectiveness as an acne treatment.  After the treatments were completed, “the mean percentage decreases in inflammatory acne lesions were 47.18%, 65.13% and 84.91% 1 month after the first, second and third treatments, respectively.” The study has shown that RF microneedling is an effective treatment for acne vulgaris. “Using objective parameters, we assessed safety
and effectiveness. In conclusion, we suggest that fractional RF microneedling is safe and effective for the treatment of acne vulgaris.”

Clinical Indications and Efficacy of RF Microneedling on Acne

Over the years, the cosmetic industry has seen an increase in the use of energy based technologies to improve the look of the skin. CO2 is an effective laser for skin rejuvenation, however it comes with a long downtime and high risk of complications.  Fractionated laser resurfacing improved with faster recovery time, but it could not provide the same skin rejuvenation results as fully ablative lasers.

Radiofrequency started appearing for skin rejuvenation. This technology is not laser. Instead of light energy, it uses RF energy to transform into thermal energy by tissue resistance within the layers of the skin.  The main advantage of RF energy is the ability to treat all skin types because it doesn’t use light to stimulate melanin directly.  There have been monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency devices.  Cynosure’s Potenza is the worlds first RF device to have both monopolar and bipolar RF in one device.

RF Microneedling uses micro needles in combination with radiofrequency energy to treat your active acne and acne scars.  Microneedling penetrates the upper skin layer and the radiofrequency energy is released in the exact depth. 

With just microneedling alone there is no thermal damage delivered to the mid and deep dermis, which is needed for significant skin tightening. With the combination of microneedling, RF energy, plus monopolar and bipolar frequencies, you now have the ideal device to treat skin tightening, facelifting, stretch marks, active acne, and acne scars effectively.

At our acne treatment Toronto clinic, we use the Gold Standard of RF microneedling, the Cynosure Potenza.

Bipolar treatment – the RF energy comes out from one needle and is returned to another needle on the same tip. Treatment is more shallow and focused. This is great treatment for skin texture issues like acne scars, open pores, stretch marks.

Monopolar treatment – the RF energy comes out from a handpiece and goes deeper into the tissue before going into the return pad and going back into the machine. This is a great treatment to target deeper issues like retaining ligaments, deeper fat. It can also gives a great facelifting effect.

Fractional Lasers vs RF Microneedling

Fractional lasers and RF microneedling are both used to treat acne scars. Prior to the use of RF microneedling, lasers were the main technology used for treating acne scars. However, with the newer technologies today, RF microneedling have some advantages over lasers.  One limitation of using laser for acne scarring is the risk of hyperpigmentation especially in darker Fitzpatrick skin types.  RF microneedling does not target melanin like lasers thus the risk of hyperpigmentation is greatly reduced even for darker skin.  The RF microneedling needles and RF energy can be placed in exact depths of the skin layers for better efficacy.   

Both devices can stimulate the production of collagen to improve the skins appearance. RF microneedling can also increase elastin density which improves skin tightening.   Whereas ablative lasers were performed mainly on the face, RF microneedling can be done on the face as well as other parts of the body.  This is because the RF microneedling have the ability to adjust needle depth and energy levels.  This includes the neck for wrinkles, the abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, and legs to treat stretch marks and cellulite. These areas are difficult to do with lasers as they have a high risk of scarring in non-facial tissue.  In conclusion, RF microneedling is an established technology that has been proven to effectively treat acne and acne scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, without the risks associated with laser.
