Some people may have pimples that heal into blemish-free skin, but that’s not the case for most people. For some, acne scar may never go away on its own. And this makes us wonder why this happens. People are forced to wear masks or scars to cover up the dark marks that their acne or pimples have left behind. Also, when left untreated, they can even worsen. To help you prevent any chance of acne scars from developing, there are effective ways to control and treat sudden outbreaks.
If you have acne scars, it doesn’t mean there are no chances of getting rid of them, and you will be living with them for the rest of your life. With proper treatments and advice, those scars will be gone in no time.
For people who suffer from milder acne scars, natural home remedies may work well. Apple cider vinegar, lemon, honey, potato, and coconut oil and few of the natural home ingredients that you can use to help prevent further acne scar development also to help soothe acne or pimples. These remedies can also be used after undergoing other medical treatments such as chemical peels and laser procedures.
Dermabrasion helps to reduce the deepness of an acne scar. The treatment is carried out by a medical professional who uses a rotating wire brush to wear down the outer surface of the skin gently. Dermabrasion may take some time to heal, but the results you will be getting from this treatment will be worth it as you will soon be having a refined and smoother skin.
Chemical peels work effectively in treating shallow acne scars. The procedure includes applying a concentrated chemical substance directly to the acne scar. This helps to peel off the outer surface of the skin, revealing a newer and smoother complexion. Keep in mind that chemical peeling may come with side effects such as peeling and redness that will happen for a few days to weeks.
Laser treatment is one of the most recommended treatment methods that most dermatologist will advise to a patient. One reason is that the treatment may cause only little to no pain thanks to the topical anaesthetic used before beginning with the laser treatment. Also, side effects are rare. Maybe a bit of swelling and bruising that will last for a few days. The treatment works by delivering laser energy into the skin and breaking apart the damaged cells. Patients may need to undergo multiple sessions to achieve the best results.
Dermal fillers help to reduce the discolouration of the acne scars. This works by filling in the acne scars with filler substances which will also boost collagen production. There are various types of filler substances. Such are collagen, hyaluronic acid, and even the patient’s fat. Although, these substances may be absorbed into the skin and may lose their effects over time. That’s why having continuous sessions of derma fillers is require to maintain its effects.
