Rejuran S for Acne Scars
Rejuran S is the latest innovation in acne scar treatment. Made up of Polynucleotides, Rejuran S helps promote skin healing and collagen remodelling.
What is Rejuran S?
Rejuran S, is a more concentrated version of the popular Korean Salmon DNA-derived Rejuran Healer that most aesthetic clinics offer. The Rejuran S has restorative and regenerative properties to help treat acne scarring. The Rejuran S promotes skin cell growth and healing through inducing fibroblast and collagen production. Polyneuclotide chains, which make up Rejuran S, repair damaged skin cells and assist in collagen stimulation.
Rejuran S, S indicating scar, is more concentrated and more viscous in texture compared to the Rejuran Healer and is specifically manufactured to treat and reduce the appearance of acne scarring.
How does it work?
Acne scars are caused by inflammation, which results in the formation of scar tissue under the skin. Scar tissue is formed by collagen fibres arranged in a haphazard way due to abnormal healing of the skin from acne. This arrangement of scar tissue pulls or tether the skin inwards, causing the skin to form pitted scars.
The procedure of Rejuran S involves 2 steps.
Subcision: to break down the fibrous collagen scar tissue. Read about subcision here.
Injection of Rejuran S into the scarred area to improve healing and stimulate normal arrangement of collagen fibres
With these 2 steps, the scars are healed from beneath the skin by not only reducing the effects of the scars (subcision), but also by reversing the cause of the scars (Rejuran S). When combined with a fractional laser/procedure, it further enhances the results because the tiny wounds caused by the laser/procedure heals faster with Rejuran S and the ablative ability of the laser/procedure smoothens and softens the appearance of the scars from the surface.
Is it painful?
The procedure requires numbing cream as it requires a small needle for the subcision procedure and to inject the Rejuran S into the scarred area. There is slight discomfort during the procedure but is mostly tolerable.
Is there downtime?
Rejuran S, when done with a subcision procedure, can have a downtime of about 2-3 days. Injection marks may be visible, but one will be able to apply make up over after a day.
When combined with a fractional laser/procedure, downtime can be about 4-5 days. You are advised to avoid strong sun exposure for at least 7 days after the combined Rejuran / Fractional procedure.
How effective is the treatment?
Like all scar removal procedures, results can vary depending on the condition. From experience, the results of fractional lasers/procedures combined with Rejuran S yield up to 40% better results, as compared to just fractional lasers/procedures alone.
