The Acne Scar Center
Here is where it all comes together to create The Acne Scar Center: state of the art, advanced, groundbreaking treatments. It binds the experience of knowing how to safely and comfortably administer local anesthesia, a top facial surgeon, and advanced fat grafting.
The Acne Scar Center was created to offer those suffering the embarrassment of facial scars more options that really work. Our mission is to help such people with more long lasting improvement.
Son of a world famous physician who invented many important medical treatments, Dr Richard Sadove followed in his path. Inventor of the Rewind acne scar treatment, he thought “out of the box” like his father.
Old thinking treated acne scars with therapies on top of the skin. It was all that they had. Unfortunately, it was the norm and few physicians questioned its legitimacy. It requires the simple admission that the cause of depressed scars is not on top of the skin rather below it. However, no amount of destruction of the top layer of the skin was going to raise these depressions back to the surface of the surrounding skin. So, No “snake oil” treatment falsehoods of “collagen stimulation” would suffice. Collagen “stimulation” does not return a depressed or ice pick scar to normalcy. It is an absurd marketing claim for too many good people suffering from the embarrassment and lack of self esteem which comes too often from these scars.
The Acne Scar Center discoveries..
Many discoveries arise out of observations. Plastic surgeons know the experience of separating and “lifting” acne scarred skin. As the scar on the under surface of the skin is cut and released, the skin is freed. After having performed hundreds of face lifts, Dr Sadove knows it well.
While Dr Sadove’s Rewind procedure is not aggressively separating the skin as much as in a facelift, his special instrument does thoroughly cut the scars from the under surface of the skin. What happens next is what makes it truly special.
In recent years, modern medical science actively researching the science of fat grafting and stem cells. Due to these discoveries, enormous progress has made in many fields of medical science especially in Plastic Surgery. Stem cells attach to fat cells in our body. So, can become fat cells in a process commonly known as fat grafting. The cells are suctioned from one area, treated, and then placed in another area in the same human. While Dr Sadove has been performing lipofilling, lipo grafting to the face for decades, the more recent discoveries have made auto fat grafting more successful. Platelet-rich plasma, rich in autologous growth factors are added to increase the success of the Fat transfer. The stem cells, fat, and growth factors from platelets lead to a remarkable recovery in the healthy appearance of the skin after a period of months
