As we age the natural and biological process of the body cause changes on the surface of the skin in the form of ageing issues like wrinkles, folds, fine lines, laugh lines, sagging skin, creepy skin. Skin loses its strength to protect itself from damage as it becomes thin and loses its elasticity and volume.

The results from a combination of a gradual decline in skin function over time and cumulative damage caused by factors like pollution , sun exposure, smoking, high stress levels, exposure to chemicals, and notably, ultraviolet (UVB) radiation. These factors lead to degeneration of collagen in skin resulting in the impairment of the structural integrity of the skin causing the skin to wrinkle. Ageing is law of nature.

ACNE SCARS

What are acne scars & how do they form?

Acne scars are marks left behind after acne breakouts heal. Acne is a common skin condition that usually starts at puberty. It develops because of the pilosebaceous unit (the hair follicle and accompanying sebaceous gland) engorging with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria.

Inflammation of the follicles (or pores) leads to a disruption in the follicle wall. Deeper lesions develop when there is a break in the wall of the pore, triggering the discharge of infected material in to the adjacent skin. The natural tendency of the skin is to heal on its own. It attempts to produce new collagen fibers to repair the lesions. The process of repair may not always be smooth, which leads to the formation of acne scars.

How AGF therapy works in acne scars?

High concentration of various growth factors present in AGF like TGFß, FGF, VEGF, PDGF, EGF, IGF have important roles in healing, including new natural collagen induction and formation of new skin cells and blood vessels. It triggers the enhanced natural healing process of the body, yielding a smoother appearance of the scars. Its results are apparent in all the skin types.
