New Korean Treatment for Acne Scars and Wrinkles

SkinStation brings to the Philippines groundbreaking treatment from Korea that addresses acne scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. AirLift treatment is now available in SkinStation clinics nationwide. People who have to deal with rolling, box, or ice pick scars caused by acne as well as other common skin problems now have an effective solution that they can turn to.  

“The intradermal dissector ingeniously uses air to treat deep scars and acne scars. The procedure also helps reduce fine lines, stretch marks and facial pores, as it rejuvenates the skin," Dr. Karen Javier-Jusay of SkinStation said.

This machine introduces two pounds of air pressure to the intradermal layer of the skin. This breaks the attachment of scars and wrinkles, releasing the fibrotic strands that connect the scars to the underlying tissue. The treatment promotes collagen formation caused by wound healing and leads to visible improvement to the skin. 

Dr. Jusay also says that the AirLift treatment is much more effective than existing procedures that are available in the country. "Compared to subcision, the intradermal airlift uses controlled air pressure to break the fibrous strands, hence there is less probability of hematoma and bruising."

She further differentiates AirLift from Carboxytherapy which uses carbon dioxide gas to treat similar skin problems. Since the said procedure does not use significant air pressure it is not able to produce the same results as the AirLift procedure. 

Aside from effectively aiding in the eradication of scars and wrinkles, the treatment is also relatively quick. The AirLift procedure normally takes 10 to 30 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. It can also be done in conjunction with treatments like Collagenesis (dermal roller) or CO2 fractional laser to produce faster results.
