Scar & Spot treatment is the newest innovative drug delivering device to deliver the drug directly to the skin, to give appropriate stimulation to the area without damage of the skin
What are the indication / Purpose of Scar & Spot treatment Advanced EPN for skin?
The epidermis is composed of the outermost layers of the skin. The dermis is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis that consists of connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain. The dermis provides tensile strength and elasticity to the skin through an extracellular matrix composed of collagen fibrils, microfibrils, and elastic fibers, embedded in hyaluronic and proteoglycans.
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g., after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring. An exception to this is animals with complete regeneration, which regrow tissue without scar formation.
Scar tissue is composed of the same protein (collagen) as the tissue that it replaces, but the fiber composition of the protein is different; instead of a random basketweave formation of the collagen fibers found in normal tissue, in fibrosis the collagen cross-links and forms a pronounced alignment in a single direction. This collagen scar tissue alignment is usually of inferior functional quality to the normal collagen randomized alignment.
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of pilosebaceous units and the major factors involved in the pathogenesis are increased sebum production, hypercornification of the pilosebaceous duct, abnormality of the microbial flora, especially ductal colonization with Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes)
Acne vulgaris is a multifactorial skin disorder of the pilosebaceous unit significantly associated with psycho‑social comorbidities. Acne is treated with a variety of topical and oral medications such as antibacterials, antimicrobials, and retinoids.
Visible pigmentation of the skin, hair, and eyes depends primarily on the presence of melanin in those tissues. Melanin is produced by specific cells called melanocytes. Not only is the type of melanin produced important, but also its eventual distribution in the tissue dramatically affects visible color, which ultimately determines the functions of the pigment, such as photoprotection Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries. Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can be diffuse or focal, affecting such areas as the face and the back of the hands. Another form of hyperpigmentation is posted inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
