To treat scars is not always something that is easy to do, but to choose the ideal treatment is the easiest way to obtain best results. This natural process is many times affected by age or genetic tendencies. However, with the help of cosmetic medicine, is possible to find safe and efficient solutions.
The scars are results of tissue repairing after suffering a trauma caused by surgeries or accidents. When the tissue repairing occurs in an abnormal way, an increased collagen deposit disseminates itself, and the fibers manage themselves as nodes that grow and distribute in irregular way.
Some factors contribute with the aggravation of the scarring, like age, body parts that perform more movements and efforts, like knees, elbows, and thorax, as well as the excess of sun exposure that make the marks more visible.
The treatments of scars may be done by radiofrequency, which, due to its thermal effect, allows the realigning of the collagen fibers, improving the scar aspect. This procedure allows the diminishing of the salience of the skin, besides the change on the coloring, approaching the adjacent tissues that were not harmed.
The HTM Límine and Effect are high power radiofrequency equipment that simultaneously warms the superficial (dermis) and deep (hypodermis) areas, providing various structural and metabolic reactions.
According to the scientific consultant Aline Marques, “the treatment can be performed in any time of the year, without altering the daily routine, for being painless and noninvasive. The radiofrequency application creates a controlled warmth feeling and local redness, effects that disappear in a while”.
6 to 10 sessions are recommended, and may be performed 1 to 2 times a week, since the intention is to reorganize the collagen fibers. The number of sessions may vary according to the clinical picture and the evolution of each patient.
