Preventing Acne Scars

You can work towards prevention beforehand.

care routine where you

cleanse, tone, and wash your

skin. Do this twice a day, and

if you live in a city or town

which is very hot and humid

make sure to wash your skin

thoroughly and maybe thrice a

day.

Invest in a good sunblock that would go well with your skin type. You can also

mix it in your cream or foundation before you step out. The sun’s rays tend to

damage our skin and increase the visibility of acne and scars.

You should purchase an acne medication from a reliable drugstore. The acne

treatments that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid would be the best options

to get rid of your acne and prevent it from scarring.

Treating Acne Scars

If you have mild acne scarring then you can use over the counter medications.

Lotions that contain vitamin C, glycolic acid, or retinol are most beneficial in

reducing the scarring. These sort of lotionsincrease collagen and can help improve

skin that has deep acne scars.

A microdermabrasion treatment smooths out your skin and reduces scarring. You

can buy a microdermabrasion kit for home use as well, but this should be done

after consultation with your doctor. Opting for a professional treatment is always

recommended.

chemical peels are acid based solutions that

Chemical peels are acid based solutions that are applied to the areas affected by

scarring. This removes the outer layer of the skin and stimulates the collagen

repair. Several sessions would be required to notice optimal results. A series of

these sessions would leave the skin looking smoother and less scarred.

Dermal fillers are injectable hyluronic acid. This is a sort of natural sugar molecule

that absorbs water and acts similar to a moisturizer. These can be injected into the

skin to help smooth out the skin texture. They are, however, temporary and need

multiple sessions to maximize scar repair.

A fractional laser resurfacing delivers columns of controlled laser heat which heats

or removes the skin in order to allow scar remodeling. The number of treatments

and downtime after the treatments tend to vary.

Always remember to consult with your dermatologist for the right advice.
