What are Skin Brightening Treatments?

Does your skin look dull, darker, or patchy? Do you wish to change that while you can?

Well, this is what this blog talks about!

An answer to all the questions you ask when you stand in front of the mirror.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics brings you these skin brightening treatments that not only make your skin bright but make it better.

Skin Brightening treatments have gained popularity over time.

Whether you go have to attend a function, or you want to look more confident, these treatments work like a charm.

All of us have different skin types.

And that is why Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics tailor-makes the treatment which is the best and safest for your skin.

For safety, a dermatologist who understands your skin will be able to perform these procedures most safely.

So it’s important how to choose a dermatologist.

Let us view the answers you have been waiting for.


Skin Brightening Treatments

As far as the common idea of a bridal makeover or someone searching for long-term beautiful skin goes, this is one of the most sought-after treatments.

  • Hollywood Carbon Peel

This is an advanced carbon laser procedure, effective for various skin imperfections. 

It can lessen the visibility of scars and fine wrinkles, enhance skin tone, help repair UV damage, and cure acne and enlarged pores. 

This mild procedure results in an enhanced, brighter skin tone that looks and feels younger.

Let’s take a look at the procedure of this treatment.

The Hollywood Peel removes the top layer of dead skin by heating the dermis with laser radiation and a specific Spectra lotion. 


This treatment consists of three main components:

  • The dermatologist applies a black carbon solution
  • The carbon is heated by laser radiation, enabling skin penetration.
  • To exfoliate the skin, a different laser energy setting is used, which causes the carbon particles to erupt.


The melanin skin cells are the target of the specific laser energy, which fragments them. 

Your skin will appear more radiant once the body naturally eliminates the broken-down melanin.

  • Hydrafacial

A HydraFacial is a cosmetic procedure that uses specialized tools to clean and moisturize your skin. 

It uses unique technology to clear the skin’s pores and get rid of dead skin cells.

In the process, your face is thoroughly cleaned in the first stage, then exfoliated, and finally moisturized.

At Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics, this 60-minute procedure is divided into three parts:

  • Cleanse+Peel: This skin is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated with a peel.

  • Extract+Hydrate:  Nurtures the skin with potent moisturizers while using painless suction to remove debris from pores.

  • Fuse+Protect: The “boosters,” or serums, will finish your treatment.

They are customized to address the particular needs of your skin, here, for brightened skin.

  • Diamond Peel

This is a mechanical exfoliation procedure that removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and grime from the skin’s surface to reveal younger, brighter skin. 

This non-invasive procedure can lessen mild to severe acne breakouts. 

It also diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and levels out an uneven complexion.

How does this treatment work?

The stratum corneum, the top layer of the epidermis, is made up of dead skin cells that are eliminated by a diamond peel. 

The diamond peel’s suction feature vacuums away the dead cells, dirt, and debris as it gently removes them using an abrasive diamond tip.

  • Cosmelan Peel

Cosmelan Peel is a chemical peel that combines various peels and depigmentation agents in a singular way. 

These treatments and peels reduce the skin’s melanin production.

Which ultimately leads to the brightening of the skin.

Azelaic acid, which is present in Cosmelan, destroys microorganisms on the skin’s surface and promotes the growth of new skin cells. 

Therefore, this is a very efficient anti-acne treatment specifically for people with both indications together with pigmentation.

The treatment consists of COSMELAN 1 (to be applied in the clinic) and COSMELAN 2 items (home application).

The course of treatment entails one in-clinic visit followed by at-home maintenance.

Cosmelan 1 Depending on your desired cosmetic outcomes, the professional treatment mask.

It is administered by a dermatologist in a clinic and should be left on for a period of between 8 and 12 hours.

Cosmelan 2 You are advised to should then utilize Cosmelan2 at home. 

This procedure is begun 48 hours after the in-clinic mask, and it should be utilized following the dermatologist’s recommendations.


Aftercare for Skin Brightening Treatments

Your skin gets a bit more sensitive after these procedures.

So what do you do then?

Post-treatment procedures. These are equally important as the treatment:


  • When you expose your skin to the sun, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and avoid exposure to the sun.
  • Refrain from rubbing or cleaning your skin.
  • Waxing, bleaching, and the use of any fragrant products must wait at least 72 hours after a peel.
  • After the peel, stay away from hot baths, steam rooms, and saunas.


Benefits of Skin Brightening Treatments

Being dissatisfied with your skin can cause a lot of trouble, not only physically but mentally as well.

A positive perception of yourself is always better.

And reaching your cosmetic goals can help you see yourself in a new light and help you move forward.

Just like this benefit skin brightening treatment brings much more for you.

  • Quick Results

You can start seeing the results of the above-mentioned treatments almost immediately after the treatment or 2-3 weeks, depending on the type of treatment.

These treatments are also used to treat scars, and acne and exfoliate your skin to a great extent.


  • Rejuvenating skin

As these treatments moisturize and hydrate your skin, they lead to a whole new refreshing skin.

Exfoliation is always better for your skin and cleanses your skin deeply, plus gives a bright tone you always wished for.

The magical world of social media has brought this treatment into the trend.

And most of them follow the trend blindly.

And that is why we plan to educate you with the help of Dr. Shaunakk Patel, one of the best dermatologists in Ahmedabad.

Let’s jump right into it.


What is Dermaplanning?


Dermaplaning is a skin procedure that removes hair and dead skin cells from your face using an exfoliating blade. 

It is also known as blading or microplaning.

This blade is like a scalpel but not sharp enough.

But any treatment with a blade should be done professionally and with the proper expertise.

You need a dermatologist who is experienced enough to treat you as well as take care of you. 

And that is why you should know how to choose a dermatologist.

With dermaplaning, you can get a smooth, glowing, and youthful skin surface.

This procedure promises to get rid of uneven pockmarks on your face and deep acne scars. 

The short, delicate hairs on your face known as “peach fuzz” are also removed with it.

Most of them get this treatment done on the face, but you can get it anywhere on your body.

Anyone can be treated with any variety of skin, including those with:

  • acne scars
  • dull skin
  • dry skin
  • sun-damaged skin
  • fine wrinkles

Even if you don’t have these skin problems, dermaplaning is a great option for exfoliating your skin.

At Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics, the procedure is carried out with utmost care, professionally and personally.

Let’s discuss the procedure details so you know better what to expect during the treatment.


Procedure of Dermaplaning


We will discuss the procedure from before to after the treatment is quite detail, so all you have to do is wait for that moment.

The moment where you get the treatment.

This information will make your treatment procedure a little smoother, so here we go!


Before Dermaplaning:


A dermatologist will be performing this procedure but before that, they need to understand you and for that, they will:

  • Discuss your cosmetic goals for the treatment
  • Make sure your skin is healthy for the procedure by inspecting it.
  • Give an explanation of what to expect before, during, and after dermaplaning.
  • Review your medical background.

The dermatologist might click the pictures of the area to be treated.

Which will help you compare the before and after treatment changes in your skin.

Your dermatologist might even give you additional instructions that you will have to follow before or after the procedure.

For Example, they might ask you to stop smoking for a few weeks as it helps you heal better after the treatment.


During Dermaplaning:

Dermaplaning doesn’t require general anesthesia. 

But around 30 minutes prior to the operation, your doctor may apply numbing cream or spray to your face.

Although you might experience some stinging or itching on your skin, dermaplaning is often not a painful procedure.

A dermatome is a specialized tool used by your dermatologist to remove the layer of the skin cells along with the hair. 

The device has an electric razor-like appearance. 

A tiny blade on the dermatome glides across your skin back and forth.

Like a shaving blade on your skin. 

It softly removes the top layers of skin without making wounds in your skin.

As some layer of your skin has been scraped off, your skin gets a little sensitive.

To lessen redness, swelling, or irritation afterward, they may apply a soothing gel or ointment to your skin.

The treatment procedure might last from a few minutes to an hour and a half.

The duration of the procedure is dependent on the area to be treated.

You don’t need any downtime whatsoever after the treatment.


After Dermaplaning:


Now that the dead skin cells and the unwanted hair have been removed from your skin, it gives a fresh look to you.

Immediately following a dermaplaning procedure, you can notice that your skin appears brighter.

It usually takes a few days to get the full effects. 

In the days that follow, you’ll be able to notice the benefits more clearly as any redness fades.

After the dermaplaning technique, your skin may be mildly painful, red, and puffy. 

To ease any discomfort, the dermatologist may suggest over-the-counter painkillers.

Staying out of the sun is advised after the treatment. 

As the skin becomes more sensitive, it has chances to be affected by the UV rays of the sun much more.

So either stay out of the sun or either make a routine to apply sunscreen which helps you protect yourself from the sun.

Well, dermaplaning comes with a lot of aftercare but it is all worth it with the benefits it provides.


Benefits of Dermaplaning


What’s the point of discussing a treatment if you don’t know its benefits, right?

Dermaplaning brings a truck of benefits that you can enjoy after the treatment.

Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

  • Rejuvenated and revitalized skin

This procedure rejuvenates the skin by eliminating dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new ones. 

Hyperpigmentation, or the darker areas that can develop on the skin, is lessened and the skin tone is evened out. 

Overall, the skin seems brighter and more youthful. 

The skin’s surface roughness is smoothed away, and the patient’s complexion is made more radiant.

  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines

All of those fresh skin cells also aid in reducing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines, delaying some of the early indications of aging.

  • Peach fuzz is not a problem anymore

Scalpel facials are well renowned for their ability to rejuvenate the skin, but this procedure also controls the peach fuzz that bothers so many patients. 

You’ll be astonished at how good you look after having those tiny hairs removed, even though they mainly appear to be invisible. 

Your skin will feel smooth to the touch and practically sparkle. 

Many patients report that after treatment, their face is as smooth and soft as a baby’s bottom. 

This treatment’s ability to remove both the thin vellus hairs and the darker, more noticeable facial hairs is one of its benefits.

  • Helps you build a good skincare routine

The initial few days following treatment are the best time to concentrate on your top-notch serums, moisturizers, and other components of your at-home skincare regimen. 

You’ll benefit the most from those treatments because your shaved face and immaculate pores can thoroughly absorb them. 

In the first few days following your treatment, facials and other aesthetic procedures are extremely helpful.

  • You can use cosmetics easily

Once your face is free of peach fuzz and dead skin cells, your cosmetics will also apply much more smoothly. 

Your morning makeup regimen will take less time, and once your face is set up, it will appear better. 

Have you ever observed how after using foundation and powder, fine facial hairs tend to rise up and emerge? 

After this procedure, you won’t have to be concerned about the appearance of those tiny hairs.

  • Smaller and cleaner pores

This procedure deep cleans the pores of the face by removing debris, oils, and dead skin cells. 

Your pores will look smaller on your face after they have been cleansed. 

Due to the direct relationship between pore size and age, this results in a more youthful appearance.

  • Gentle and soothing

Despite how frightening it may sound to have your face shaved with a blade, the procedure is incredibly soothing and delightful. 

This is a delicate procedure that doesn’t use harsh chemicals or strain, tug or scratch the skin. 

All skin kinds and tones can safely receive a scalpel facial because they are absolutely non-invasive.

  • Convenient

There is no downtime required for this quick procedure. 

Most appointments run no longer than an hour, and you can resume your schedule as soon as they are through. 

Many people even schedule these procedures for their breaks or lunchtimes, leading some to affectionately refer to the service as a lunchtime facial.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics, a skin treatment clinic in Ahmedabad will clear all the doubts to make it easier for you.

So gather as much as you can from this, which will also make consulting a dermatologist a better experience for you.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment?

To understand PRP treatment, the first step is to understand how platelets work in healing.

Platelets are blood cells that originate in the bone marrow and travel throughout the body.

Their main job is to stop and prevent bleeding.

And, how do they do it?

The body transmits information to platelets when a blood vessel is damaged, causing them to flow to the injured location.

Due to this function of platelets, researchers derived a theory.

Guess what it was?

To extract and then inject them into the damaged area to boost the process of healing.

Let’s take a look at how PRP is produced.

A dermatologist takes your blood sample and places it in a machine called a centrifuge.

This machine spins at a high speed and differentiates the blood constituents.

And then, the platelets are extracted to inject them into the damaged area.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics focuses on personalized care during and after the treatment.

What could be better than having professional and personal care at the same time?

By the way, did you know?

PRP treatment is also popularly known as “vampire treatments.”

Ever heard about it? If not, now you do.

PRP platelets are about five times more concentrated than ordinary blood platelets.

This is why they are rich in growth factors and proteins.

Before entering a clinic you should know what kind of procedure will be performed on you.


This will make it easier for you to cope and take measures according to it.

What is the Procedure of PRP Treatment?

Do you remember the process we mentioned above?

As we discussed that process in brief above let us elaborate a little for you.

There are a few steps that are needed to be followed while performing the treatment.

And the process might take around 1 hour.

Surprisingly, not much, right?

These are the following steps to be followed:

Step#1 30-40 ml of the blood is drawn through a vacutainer into a specially formulated container.

Step#2 It is then put into a centrifuge.

Step#3 After approximately 10 minutes, the blood is differentiated into separate components.

Step#4 The platelets are extracted with a syringe by a dermatologist.

Step#5 A topical anesthetic is applied over the area to be treated.

Step#6 Platelet-rich plasma is injected into your scalp directly.

When the PRP is injected, it causes microtrauma to the dermis (middle layer of the skin).

This activates the repair cells and leads to repairing your hair follicles.

And this is also why it is also considered a safe treatment because your own blood is extracted and then injected into you.

So, you can usually continue your normal activities which means you’ll have almost zero downtime.

But there can be a few side effects you need to deal with.

Side Effects is PRP Treatment

There can be a reaction to injecting your own blood into the scalp but these side effects only last for a few days.

Let’s take a look at them.

  • A little discomfort at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Sore and tender scalp
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Temporary minute bleeding

These side effects are quite bearable and worth the treatment.

As it has far more benefits that can overlook these side effects and give you the desired look.

So let’s discover the benefits of PRP treatment.

Benefits of PRP Treatment

From what we have learned so far, we have differentiated the benefits from for you.

  • Minimal side effects- As your own blood platelets are injected into your scalp, there are minimal side effects and no risk of getting a disease.
  • Natural-looking outcome- Your DNA structure remains the same due to your blood platelets which gives you a natural look plus long-lasting results.
  • Outpatient Treatment- As the treatment takes around an hour you don’t have to stay at the clinic for long which makes it even more convenient for you.
  • Non-surgical- The procedure only involves injecting the platelets, or any scars or cuts and usually leaves only a little discomfort at the area of treatment.

Are you tired of not seeing results from a facial? Does it only bring you momentarily pleasure?

You must have heard about this new talk in the town, HydraFacial.

If not, then this is the chance to discover about it.

This blog will be talking about everything about the special Hydrafacial.

And also, how it benefits you.

So, you feel like a fresh new person with relaxed and fresh skin.

You want to feel comfortable in your skin, don’t you?

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics will help you achieve it with one of the best dermatologists in Ahmedabad.

Let’s dive right in.

What is HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a cosmetic procedure that cleans and hydrates your skin with the use of special instruments.

It makes use of patented technology to cleanse the pores and remove dead skin cells from the skin.

Pretty simple, isn’t it?

What it does is it deep cleans your face, exfoliates it, and then hydrates it.

This can be also called the three-step process which we will elaborate on further.

It is a noninvasive procedure.

This means no kind of medical instrument is being inserted into your skin.

And as it is performed medically it brings you more dramatic results than a normal facial.

So, is it worth the hype?


Plus, it can be used on all kinds of skin types.

As we mentioned about the procedure earlier, it’s time to educate you about it now.

What is the Procedure for HydraFacial?

Dr. Shaunakk Patel has divided the procedure of HydraFacial into three parts.

It is a 60-minute procedure and the rejuvenation that you feel after is unparalleled.

These steps are:

  • Cleanse+Peel

    This is the first step where the skin is resurfaced with exfoliation.

    Exfoliation is extremely important for our skin and it should be done regularly.

    But most people do not even use scrub regularly which is the most basic thing to exfoliate the skin.

    So, exfoliation is very prominent and is known to have beneficial effects on the skin as it unclogs the pores and even adds a flow to it.

    And with long-term use, it increases the level of collagen which slows down your aging skin.

  • Extract+Hydrate

    The HydraFacial uses painless suction to remove dirt from pores and nourishes the skin with powerful moisturizers.

    The unique, automated vortex suction gently cleans pores while antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid nourish and protect the skin.

  • Fuse+Protect

    Your treatment will be completed with “boosters,” often known as serums.

    These are tailored to your skin’s specific needs, such as decreasing hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores.

    To optimize your shine, a HydraFacial saturates the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides.

    To address specific skin conditions, targeted, customized skin remedies are supplied.

    Patients can retain their outcomes at home using follow-up lotions that help them keep them for a long time.

    And it brings a surprise for you.

    These serums and lotions allow you to customize your treatment according to your skin.

    So, Dr. Shaunakk Patel examines your skin thoroughly and suggests remedies that are the best for you and your skin.

After this procedure, you feel that your skin has been refreshed with magic or something.

But the question arises, do HydraFacials hurt?

As we mentioned earlier this is a non-invasive treatment.

A HydraFacial is a skin-restorative and corrective therapy.

As it is non-invasive, it does not require the introduction of energy from an external source, as an ablative laser does, so there is no discomfort following the treatment.

The patient may experience different sensations during the Hydra-Facial, including rubbing, pulling of skin under suction, and finally a feeling of massage in the third phase.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics provided a demo for the same.

So, we advise you to walk for the demo to see it for yourself because perception is highly subjective.

Along with this blog we have been pointing at the benefits of HydrFacial.

Let us brief you about them.

Benefits of HydraFacial

  • Skin-friendly and gentle procedure

    The suction technology used in HydraFacial is gentle on the face and effectively removes muck, blocked debris, and oil from within the pores.

    It purifies the pores and aids in the penetration of other creams and lotions applied to the skin.

    It is even amazing for sensitive skin types people.

  • Skin hydration

    Your skin will be moisturized and nourished after the HydrafFacial. After the facial, it also makes it soft, plump, and exceedingly smooth.

    Several people who have received the treatment reported seeing a slow aging effect on their skin, including fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Makes your skin firm and

    Another advantage of this procedure is that it firms and tightens your skin.

    It helps to tighten pores, preventing them from storing all of the debris and oils that contribute to the formation of pimples and acne.
    It also improves the skin’s brightness and smooths the texture.

  • Suits every skin type and tone

    One of the most noticeable and convincing benefits of HydraFacial for the skin is that it is suitable for all skin types and tones.

    It is also appropriate for people of all ages.

Skin Pigmentation




Do you notice those marks left on your face after your acne is healed?

Or the marks that you have after injury or burns?

Can you guess what it is?

Well, this is exactly what this blog will be about.

Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.

That is quite a long name and it is difficult to remember, right?

But yes, this is what you are going through.

From the clinic of the best dermatologist in Ahmedabad, Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics will help you educate about it.

These marks might or might not bother you.

But when you think about it at night, don’t you think to get rid of them as you wake up?

Well they can’t vanish overnight but we can help you get rid of them over time.

We believe that getting to know the problem is the first step to solving it.

So, here we go.

What is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)?

Darkening of the skin in an area of prior injury or skin condition is caused by the excess pigment (melanin) left over from the healing process, known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

It’s also possible that the darkening is caused by an iron pigment that’s left behind after old red blood cells die.

This condition looks like discoloration of the skin that is flat and dark.

Depending on your skin tone and the depth of the discoloration, it may appear white, pink, red, purple, brown, or black.

PIH can affect any skin type or sex.

People with medium to dark complexions, on the other hand, experience it more severely and for a longer period.

Sometimes it is confused with acne scarring but these cannot be called scars as they can go away over time.

Whereas, if you have acne scars, your hair follicles are damaged.

If you suffer from acne you should check out the blog about acne scars to prevent them in the future.

Because those scars can stay forever.

So yes, PIH and acne scars are confused but both are different conditions.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics plans on spreading more awareness about dermatological issues.

The more people are aware of their skin, the more they will take it seriously.

So, the next thing we bring is what could cause PIH?

Let’s have a look.

Causes of Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

When the skin becomes inflamed as a result of a lesion or irritation, such as a scratch, rash, or acne, PIH occurs.

The skin develops an excessive amount of melanin, the pigment that gives the skin its color, as it heals.

These are the reasons for the cause of excessive melanin production:

  • Sun exposure or Sunburn
  • Acne or popping acne
  • Rashes
  • Burns
  • Allergies
  • Infections

The PIH caused by these factors can be extremely stubborn as they directly affect your epidermis (top layer of the skin) and the dermis (middle layer of the skin.

So you need the right advice from a dermatologist who examines and understands your skin thoroughly.

And if you don’t know how to choose a dermatologist , we have the perfect answer for you.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics can take care of that quite well because we want people to like their skin.

And we encourage it with the right treatment or consultation.

Treatments for Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Well, we have a piece of good news for you.

PIH can fade over time. But time depends from person to person.

There are too many ’buts’ in this situation.

It can take years for PIH to fade, the darker the mark, the longer it will take.

To speed up this process of fading we also have treatments to recommend to you.

That makes it 2 pieces of good news!

So, without any wait, these are the treatments for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation:

  • Topical and Over-the-Counter Treatments

    If you have some subtle PIH marks, over-the-counter products can actually help you vanish them.

    But if the PIH is deeper prescription topical treatments will be necessary:
    – Retinoids
    – Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
    – Hydroquinone
    – Azelaic Acid

    These topical treatments exfoliate or brighten your skin on a deeper level.

    But it is always necessary to consult a dermatologist before using them because they might irritate the skin if they don’t suit you.

  • Chemical Peels

    Chemical peels are a simple yet effective approach to address PIH as well as other skin flaws including wrinkles and creases.

    The procedure entails applying specially formulated chemicals to the skin.

    These peels cause a controlled form of damage, removing the PIH-affected outer layers of skin and revealing skin with enhanced texture and look.

    Chemical peels are classified according to their substances and concentrations.

    And what chemical peel will be used on you is determined by the dermatologist after examining your skin.

  • Laser Therapy

    Laser therapy is a procedure that involves accurately removing skin layer by layer using short, concentrated pulsating light beams.

    The regions of skin that have PIH are removed using this type of controlled harm.

    And new skin cells and proteins are stimulated to develop, leaving you with smooth, clear, radiant skin.

PIH medical procedures can be combined with medical procedures in order to produce the best results.

But taking an action on your own might make it worse for you.

A Word from Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics…

Living with the condition of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation might not affect you physically as it does not cause any pain or discomfort.

But your mental health is important too.

And it might start deteriorating because of PIH.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics does not want that.

Temporarily you can cover these marks with makeup.

But that might make you feel even worse.

And so the perfect treatments exist for you as we mentioned above.

So whether you hesitate or not, consulting a dermatologist will help you.

Because your questions need to be heard. Book an appointment today!

Acne Scar Treatment Dermal Filler Treatment Skin Pigmentation




Do you still remember those scars at night? Do they still haunt you?

It could be anything, from an accident, a fight, or just acne scars.

But they still take a toll on your mind, don’t they?

In this guide, we’ll help you learn about facial scars and facial scar treatments.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics understands your skin well and helps you understand it better too with the help of the best dermatologist in Ahmedabad.

As we all know, skin protects all our body’s assets from external factors.

It can get scarred in the process of that protection.

For Example, a piece of silk.

If it tears in any case, it cannot go back to how it used to be.

But in this case, your burn, injury, or other trauma which has caused a scar can be corrected.

Now small facial scars are easy to conceal.

But what about the deep and big scars?

The answer is facial scar treatments as we mentioned earlier.

So without any further wait, let’s get into it.

How Does the Scarring Take Place?

You remember how you got hurt right? You wished it to heal as soon as possible.

But, this healing is what leaves the scars behind.

Scars are just a process of healing your injury.

The skin heals itself by producing new tissue to bring the wound together and fill in any gaps left by the injury.

Collagen is the most common protein found in scar tissue.

What can be the signs of these scars?

Let’s have a look.

On lighter skin, scars are frequently pink or red when they initially appear.

The pinkish tone diminishes with time, and the scar turns noticeably darker or lighter than the skin.

Scars may look like dark spots on people with dark skin.

Scars can itch and be uncomfortable or irritating at times.

Do you wonder why has your scar not disappeared yet?

Because the scar depends on many factors.

These are:

  • A type of scar caused by an injury or an event, such as surgery, a burn, or severe acne.
  • The wound’s size, severity, and placement on the face.
  • Stitches or bandages are used to treat the wound.
  • Your age, genes, ethnicity, and overall health are all factors to consider.

The treatment of facial scars depends on their type.

What is the Type of Facial Scars?

  • Atrophic Scars

    These scars resemble spherical pits or minor skin irregularities and are also known as depressed scars.

    Chickenpox or acne are common causes of atrophic scars.

    The types of atrophic scars are ice pick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars.

    The skin gradually loses collagen and flexibility as you age and acne scars may become more visible.

  • Contracture Scars

    Contracture scars often develop after a burn injury.

    They cause the skin to tighten and could lead to skin contraction which makes your skin hard to move.

    As this scarring can occur over muscles, nerves, or joints, it can affect the face in different ways.

    For Example, difficulty moving your jaw as it is a hinge joint.

  • Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars

    When you run your finger over a hypertrophic scar, you can feel it.

    These elevated scars may reduce in size over time, but they never completely disappear.

    Keloid scars are raised above the skin’s surface and extend beyond the location of wounding.

    Scar tissue that has developed out of control can become big and restrict movement.

    Hypertrophic scars don’t expand or spread beyond the damaged area, unlike keloids.

  • Flat Scars

    As you can figure out from the name, flat scars are flat on the surface of your skin.

    These may be raised at first, but with time they flatten out.

    What makes them a scar is that they are a little lighter or darker than the surrounding skin tone.

    These scars can be stubborn and might even stay with you for a lifetime.


    You want to treat them.

    There are various treatments for these scars.

    We know you have waited to read this.

    So, finally, let’s take a look at the treatments.

Treatments of Facial Scars

Several facial scar treatments can reduce your scars and make them less noticeable just like you wished for.

A dermatologist might recommend your treatment or a combination of multiple treatments.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics uses state-of-the-art technologies to give you the best treatment.

Plus, you get personal as well as professional care from us.

Facial scar treatment depends on the following factors:

– Type of the scar
– Size of the scar
– Location of the scar on the face
– Your age and scar’s age
– Whether the scar is causing you pain

So what are these treatments we are talking about?

  • Chemical peels

    Chemical peels are made up of mild acids that are applied to the skin in a single layer.

    As a result, the epidermis (top layer of skin) exfoliates and peels away, revealing a new less scarred layer of the skin.

  • Laser Resurfacing

    Damaged collagen beneath the epidermis is heated using a laser. The wound-healing response of the body is used to produce new, healthy collagen.

    This encourages the growth of new skin to take the place of the old.

    Ablative and Non-Ablative laser resurfacing are the two types of laser resurfacing.

    Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics can assist you in deciding which is the best option for you.

  • Fillers

    A chemical such as hyaluronic acid is injected into the location of the depressed scar to elevate the skin and improve the appearance.

  • Excision

    The dermatologist uses this technique is used by the dermatologist to an incision into the skin, remove the acne scar, and stitch up the wound.

    This is a significantly more successful and time-saving approach to treating these more troublesome scar types.

    It’s used to smooth out a scar.

  • Grafting

    During grafting, the doctor makes a hole in the skin, removes the scar, and replaces it with a plug of fresh skin.

    Skin plugs are generally retrieved from behind the ear lobe after they have been placed in the treatment region.

    The plugs are cemented in place for about a week to allow them to recover. It results in a smoother scar that can be rejuvenated with a skin resurfacing procedure.

  • Subcision

    In this technique, a needle is used to cut apart fibrous bands that pull scar tissue down into the lower parts of your skin.

    This treatment raises a depressed scar while simultaneously causing collagen to be secreted at the needle insertion site.

    The skin is released so that it can resurface and lay flat naturally.

  • Microneedling Radio Frequency (MNRF)

    Small sterile needles are used to make microscopic holes in the skin during this process.

    This is done without injuring the epidermis at various depths, such as acne scars.

    The use of Radiofrequency energy by needles causes direct heating of the dermis, resulting in new collagen production and dermal(skin) thickening.

Depending on the factors we mentioned above, these treatments are divided into different grades of mild, moderate, and severe.

A combination of these treatments can be advised by the dermatologist to minimize the appearance of the scar effectively.

And, Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics will clear them for you with pure facts.

These questions are answered by Dr. Shaunakk Patel, one of the best dermatologists in Ahmedabad.

Along with his expertise and experience he wishes to spread awareness among people.

Because people go through these questions at some other point in their lifetime.

So, let’s solve them once and for all.

And you have a little less to worry about things after you read this blog!

Do you know what you get as a bonus here?

In the process of getting your questions answered, you will learn as well as get to know interesting facts.

Quite fascinating, don’t you think?

Let’s begin!

1. How do I start a Skincare Routine?

As you know all of our skins have different types like oily, dry or sensitive ones.

A combination of these exists too. For Example, an oily and a dry one.

So, the first step is to determine the type of skin you have.

The second step is to set up your goals.

What do you want to achieve with a skincare routine?

For Example, getting rid of acne or anti-aging.

Once you are sure about this, start searching for the products that meet the first two steps.

And if you are having a problem determining these things, the best choice would be to consult a dermatologist!

2. How many times should I wash my face?

There is a prominent myth about washing your face multiple times, that the more you wash the healthier it will be.

This is wrong on a lot of parameters.

Overwashing is a thing as well and doing it can be as harmful as not washing your face.

It makes the skin so dry that you will see instant breakouts on your face.

Plus, it causes constant irritation to your face, so we recommend washing your face twice a day.

As we said earlier, we recommend that you get to know your skin first and then take action in the right direction.

3. What is the cause of my acne?

Acne is one of the most common skin problems.

There are a lot of factors that lead to your acne.

Androgen hormones, which generally become active during adolescence and young adulthood, are a major hormonal factor in acne.

Acne can be brought on by sensitivity to these hormones, in addition to surface skin microorganisms and fatty acids within oil glands.

These conditions make it worse:

  • Picking on acne
  • Pollution
  • Genetics
  • Stress or depression
  • Medications
  • Eating sugary foods

Your causes of acne might be unknown so discover the causes before a treatment.

Your dermatologist can help you do that.

We have a detailed article just for everything about acne and acne treatments, check it out !

4. Why is sunscreen so important and what Sun Protection Factor (SPF) do you recommend?

Wearing your sunscreen is quite the easiest and the best way to protect your skin from the UV rays of the sun.

Which ultimately provides you from skin cancer.

The more you are exposed to the sun, the more the risk of skin cancer will increase.

UV rays exposure also leads to premature aging.

You do not want to age faster, right?

That is why sunscreen is important even on cloudy days because can’t escape those rays.

The recommended SPF level is 15 but we recommend SPF levels of 30-50.

SPF 15 gives you the protection of 93% from UV rays whereas SPF level 30-50 can give you up to 98% protection from it.

Also, check if sunscreen has a broad spectrum of providing you protection from UVA and UVB rays.

Apply a thick layer of it 15-20 mins before heading outside so that your skin absorbs it to protect you.

Also, sunscreens are not permanent, make sure you apply them every 2-3 hours.

5. Why is my skin partially oily and partially dry?

The classic T-zone tends to be more oily and pores might be more noticeable in these regions because we are born with more oil glands in specific areas of the face.

Genetics is something you can’t change.

But if necessary, you can use different products on the oily parts than you would on the dry ones.

6. Should I pop my pimples or not?

Honestly, we suggest you shouldn’t.

They can cause an infection and scarring and damage your hair follicles.
We need to consider the origin of the pimple as well as its general location on the skin, which is inside the hair follicle unit, or more precisely, inside the pore.

Therefore, this pimple is a little pus ball that is fixed inside this pore.

It’s just being held there which is fine.

At this time, it won’t leave any scars.

As soon as you pop it, you break the hair follicle, and the inflammation causes harm to the collagen in the area.

So that’s where the scarring occurs.

Therefore, avoid popping your pimples to avoid scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

They can last a lifetime, not acne.

Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics can help you get spot treatments that help you relieve extreme acne.

7. Why does aging cause the skin to wrinkle?

Skin loses volume with age.

For Example, a grape.

Imagine you are that grape and you start to lose the skin’s volume with the age.

This volume is pulled by gravity the leads to sagging.

And you turn into a raisin.

This is the first reason. Gravity.

Now an instance for the second one.

Imagine yourself as a shoe.

The more you move the more creases it creates.

That’s what happens with our facial muscles as well.

Your expressions lead to your wrinkles because of their movement.

Cosmetic treatments like Botox and Fillers can be great options to get rid of these wrinkles.

Also, make sure to not expose yourself much to the sun because that increases the rate of aging skin.

Or apply sunscreen as directed.
