Ever heard of Saline Injection?

Saline injections are mostly used for hydration purposes. According to David J. Sire, M. D., the Director of Advanced Skincare Surgery and Medcenter, this acne scar removal method does not introduce a new foreign material into the skin, since saline injections are primarily a combination of salt and water.

Saline injection is not just safe but is also an effective method of acne scar removal. A study conducted to around 147 patients which was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology can attest to this. According to the results of the study, a success rate of 64% was achieved. Furthermore, the process showed mild side effects and a low deviation rate to patients with varying age, genders, and skin types.

How does it work?

There are two options for using this acne scar removal method, either saline will be injected directly below you acne scar tissue or you can opt for ‘volume fillers.’ Dr. Sire said that saline will help in the elimination of your old skin cells and in the creation of your fresh skin cells by provoking fibroblasts to produce collagen.

How much will it cost?

A thinning wallet that you have always feared will not usually happen with this acne scar removal technique, since the cost of every injection only varies from $100 to $150.  The ratio for the scar and injections is typically 1:1 and each treatment takes about 15 minutes to half an hour to perform.

Another good thing about saline injections is that it produce results as early as two weeks after the treatment, which by the way last for one to two years depending on the skin of the person.

However, precautions should still be exercised although it is proven to be a safe acne scar removal treatment.

Saline injection is just one of the various available means of acne scar removal. Still, if you are in the verge of wanting to see quick and good results, then this might just be for you. It is safe, effective, and considerably cheap, definitely ideal for your needs.
