What Is Acne?

Acne (also known as Acne Vulgaris) consists of blockage of hair follicles and sebaceous glands in the skin, ultimately leading to the development of pimples on the skin.

It can be found on different parts of a person's body, such as the face, neck, shoulders, arms, and upper back.

Acne can change a life as people may experience emotional and physical stress. While acne is not life-threatening, it can lead to permanent scars that may stay with a person for their lifetime if not treated properly. People with lots of acne and acne scars often feel that they are being stared at and may even avoid social situations due to feeling uncomfortable. Anxiety, low self-esteem, and lack of confidence deeply affect the lives of those who suffer from acne and deep acne scars.

The Harsh Reality of Acne Troubles

  • Acne can have a significant impact on your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Stubborn acne breakouts often lead to acne scars, further adding to your distress.
  • The constant battle with acne can be emotionally draining and affect your daily life.
  • Traditional acne treatments may not provide the desired results, leaving you frustrated and disheartened.
  • Acne can be hard to deal with and frustrating
  • It can make you feel embarrassed

Have you tried countless remedies and treatments with no success? RecoSMA laser Treatment for Acne removes acne from the roots.

How Does RecoSMA Laser Treatment For Acne Work?

During the RecoSMA Laser procedure, the laser penetrates up to a depth of 6 mm, inducing a photomechanical effect on the skin cells and subcutaneous layer. This process disrupts part of the cell membranes, triggering the body's rapid tissue regeneration response. The result is the formation of entirely new untouched, rejuvenated, and healthier tissue compared to the previous tissue.

Laser Acne Treatments

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, Dr. Vasant Gholave uses the RecoSMA Laser to treat active acne with an 85 - 90% success rate. RecoSMA Laser treatment for acne works on a molecular level, cleansing the skin and regulating sebum production. 

The outer layer of the skin will not be damaged in any way. By the third day after the treatment, the acne will already have visibly reduced. The pores will also have narrowed, which acts as a preventive measure against future acne breakouts. Laser treatment for acne is painless and does not require any downtime, though it may take multiple sessions for the acne to be cleared up fully. The results can be seen 3 days after the first session.Arra Aesthetics, Pune, also uses the groundbreaking technique involving RecoSMA Laser to reduce acne scars.

What Makes RecoSMA Different From Other Laser Acne Treatments?

The RecoSMA laser is a powerful tool that can be used on the face, eyelids, neck, and anywhere on the body, making it perfect for facial acne and body acne. Its non-thermal technology means it won't cause deep tissue burns, making it safe to use any part of the body. And unlike other acne laser treatments, it can also be used on darker skin tones without causing burns or hyperpigmentation.

The RecoSMA laser is the only non-invasive laser that:

  • Does not require local anesthesia
  • Requires no cooling system or special aftercare
  • Has a shorter recovery time

The revolutionary effect of the RecoSMA laser is not just used to reduce acne and acne scars. It is also used for the treatment of stretch marks, non-healing wounds, and severe keloid and hypertrophic scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Any Non-Laser Acne Treatments?

Yes, at Arra Aesthetics, we offer a wide range of treatments to deal with acne scars which include advanced skin peel, microdermabrasion, microneedling etc.

What Are The Types Of Acne?

There are many different types of common acne:

  • Blackheads -
    Blackheads, also known as “open comedones” are tiny, dark spots on the skin. This type of acne is formed when a pore is clogged by sebum and dead skin cells stay open.
  • Whiteheads -
    Whiteheads, also known as “closed comedones” are similar to blackheads. They are small white bumps that appear just under the skin. This type of acne is formed when a pore clogged by sebum and dead skin cells is closed.
  • Nodular acne -
    Nodular acne consists of red breakouts that are formed when the clogged pores endure irritation and grow larger.
  • Papules -
    Papular acne consists of red bumps which are painful and sensitive. They are formed when the walls surrounding the pores break down from severe inflammation.
  • Pustules -
    Pustules have the appearance of a red bump with a white or yellow top. Unlike papules, these bumps are filled with fluid that looks like pus.
  • Acne Cysts -Acne cysts which are also known as nodulocystic acne or cystic acne, appear when the skin's pores become clogged by oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. These are the largest form of acne and are red or white and painful to the touch.

What Are The Causes Of Acne?

The main causes of acne are:

  • Genetics:
    Parents having acne or a family history of acne could cause someone to have this skin condition.
  • Hormonal Changes:
    Any changes in hormones cause glands to produce more oil than usual, which then causes the skin pores to get clogged up, allowing bacteria to grow.
  • Excessive facial expressions:
    People who have a habit of touching their face a lot, such as frequent touching or rubbing, could result in acne because it increases oil production on the skin.
  • Stressful events:
    These might include exams, moving house, family issues, etc., and can lead to acne.
  • Foods:
    Eating a lot of sugar and fatty foods could lead to acne.
  • Cosmetics:
    Using oily cosmetics could also result in breakouts due to excess oil on the face which could lead to acne.

How To Choose An Acne Treatment?

There are many different acne scar treatments and choosing the right treatment for the individual is very important. The experienced professionals of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, will first understand the particular skin type and type of acne of the patient. Then depending on whether the acne is active or inactive and its location, Dr. Vasant Gholave will recommend either a single treatment or a combination of treatments.

Is acne permanently curable?

Acne is not a curable condition, but it is possible to control it with treatment. Depending on the severity of your acne, you may need anywhere from one to three sessions to see results.

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we use the latest and most effective treatments available to help our patients achieve clear skin.

What measures can help prevent acne breakouts?

There are a few preventive measures that you can take at home to reduce the chances of developing acne or to prevent the worsening of existing acne. Some home treatment for acne includes:
1. Washing your face with a cleanser that contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide at least once a day.
2. Exfoliating your skin regularly to get rid of dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to acne.
3. Eating a healthy diet and avoiding triggers like sugary, spicy, or fried foods that can lead to breakouts.

What should I do after RecoSMA Laser acne treatment?

After treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure and to use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 when going outdoors. You should also avoid using any exfoliating products or scrubs on the treated area. Depending on the type of treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, crusting, or peeling on the treated area. These side effects will typically resolve within a few days to a week.

What kind of results can be expected after RecoSMA Laser acne treatment?

The results of your treatment will depend on the severity of your acne and the treatment options that you choose. In general, most people see a significant improvement in their skin after treatment. The number and type of treatments needed will vary from person to person, but most people need a combination of treatments to see noticeable results.

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, Dr. Vasant Gholave can help you choose the treatment plan that is best for you. We offer a variety of effective treatments for clearing up acne and preventing new breakouts.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic .

I was suffering from excess fat on belly. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave, Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Arra Aesthetic, Pune for fat reduction surgery. Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back. I got flatter tummy and good shape. I am happy with best liposuction result.Thank you sir and I recommend him as he is best Cosmetic Surgeon in Pune.
