If you notice that your acne is leaving an ugly trail of scars on your face, you don’t have to cringe and bear the brunt of those pimples. There are several, highly effective acne scar treatments now available, which you too can benefit from. These treatments can either remove those unsightly scars completely or diminish them to an extent that they appear far less noticeable.
Let’s check out the best of these scar removal treatments.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an effective treatment for people suffering from deep acne scars.
It involves a specialized device covered with small needles to poke holes into the surface of the skin. The holes cause a micro-injury, prompting the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. The collagen production helps in healing acne scars, wrinkles, and any other effects of sun damage that you may have experienced.
Advancements in medical technology have made microneedling procedure so easy that it can be carried out by individuals at their homes now. Now a small portable device does the same job like the one used at a surgeon’s clinic. However, it is best to leave this procedure to an experienced professional because he is better equipped to carry out the treatment and can effectively deal with any side-effects that may emerge.
If your acne scars are shallow then chemical peels can be a great way to get rid of them.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin, making it look more young and fresh. The procedure is very simple and convenient. Your surgeon applies a specialized chemical solution to your face. The chemical exfoliates the facial skin as it dries and peels off the top layer of the skin. The new layer of skin that emerges from beneath is taut and fairer and is free from acne scars.
A chemical peel is of various types. Ranging from Superficial peels to Deep peels, they treat scars of different kinds. Usually, a shallow scar will need a Superficial peel while a deeper scar will need a Deep peel. Depending on the type of scarring, your surgeon will use a peel that would best suit your individual needs.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Resurfacing, also known as the laser peel, is another very effective treatment for acne scars. It uses new laser technology to precisely remove problem-causing layers of the skin.
The procedure involves using a laser machine to direct short and concentrated laser beams on the damaged skin, precisely removing the skin layer by layer. This causes the formation of new skin cells and emergence of a fresh layer from beneath. The new skin is usually fresh and young and is free from issues like acne scars.
Laser skin resurfacing can also help get rid of other skin related issues like wrinkles and blemishes. Since, the entire top layer of the skin is removed in the procedure, it takes away many problems with it. The treatment is also cheaper than its counterparts and delivers impressive results.
