Methods to Reduce Acne Scars
Acne develops in your skin when you are an adolescent due to the change of hormone levels. Eventually this condition would fade away but would leave some stubborn scars behind which could totally put your self confidence down. If the acne scar is treated at the beginning it would be easy to diminish it. But at times we can be a little bit late for that simple treatment to correct it.
There are many acne scar removal products available and if you take the very simplest ones it would be the natural oils such as rose hip oil, lavender oil and aloevera juice or gel. These topical applications can reduce mild acne scarring. You can also purchase topical creams containing Vitamin E and other scar reducing creams and gels which you could purchase over the counter. The down side of using these oils and creams is that it can take a long time to diminish acne scars and you will have to continuously massage or rub the oils and creams on the scars.
If you have older scars it is better to consult a dermatologist to decide on which type of treatment is suitable for your skin. Nowadays you also get cosmetic physicians who can provide appropriate treatments for your acne scarring. Microd ermabrasion, chemical peels, dermal fillers and Derma rollers can help you to revitalise your skin.
Microdermabrasion involves the removal of the surface layer of skin cells using a rotating vacuum machine which includes crystals. Before using the machine your cosmetic physician would apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the treated area. This is ideal for mild or moderate acen scarrings and would rejuvenate your skin. Chemical peels are more or less used to treat pigmentation and mild depression scars which is caused by acne and would need 2 – 3 repeated treatments. You cosmetic physician would also inject dermal fillers to hydrate your skin and stimulate new collagen production.
Derma roller too can stimulate new collagen production and improve the elastin in your skin. The process literally damages your skin layer strategically allowing it to self repair and develops a healthy skin layer. LASER and Intense Pulsed light treatments are also used by some cosmetic clinics to remove mild/ moderate acne scars and requires 5 – 6 repetitive sessions of treatment.
However in case of severe acne scarring surgical procedures would be followed known as Subcision or Incision. This is known to be one of the earliest methods of treating stubborn scars. Subcision involves a surgical release of the fibrous base of depression scars and excision involves in the removal of tissue of the scar.
Now you know there are so many methods to reduce acne scars, why wait try out the home remedies like applying creams oils. If it is too late for that pay a visit to your nearest dermatologist or cosmetic physician and get the right treatment for reducing acne scars. Remember that your face is the mirror to your health and having a clear facial skin can give you self confidence to go about your day to day activities.
