Acne is one of the most common and the most stubborn skin conditions, with over 85% of the people around the globe suffering from acne breakouts at some point in their lives. As if these pesky pimples are not enough to ruin a person’s life, they also often leave behind indented scars. A latest survey conducted by an internationally recognized acne treatment center in the United States found that at least 50% of acne sufferers end up with some level of scarring.
Having that said, the best to way to treat acne scarring is to prevent it from happening in the first place. The most common cause of scarring caused by acne is picking on pimples. Never pick on the pimples no matter how much embarrassing or irritating it is. Also refrain from bathroom surgeries. We understand how tempting picking and popping pimples is, but this is the best way to get a guaranteed scar. If you will let a pimple disappear at its own, even then it will leave behind a blemish. But this is not scarring, this is simply hyperpigmentation which, in most cases, eventually goes away.
Acne scars, on the other hand, need a special treatment for their elimination. Three most commonly used acne scars treatments nowadays are:
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing:
A high intensity Carbon dioxide laser is targeted at the scarring in a fractionated way, where it pokes microscopic holes in the hard scar tissues. This prompts your immune system to speed up self repair process and produce new collagen. This not only helps heal the scars but also fills them up. Expect 36 to 48 hours of crusty oozing, accompanied by light peeling. You will be able to see up to 50% improvement in the appearance of scars after just one treatment.
Dermapen 3Pro is the latest micro-needling technique used for skin rejuvenation. This technique works by inducing skin’s self repair process. A hand held device with multiple needles of adjustable lengths is used to pierce the skin to a controlled length, encouraging the body’s immune system to speed up the healing process and build new collagen. Unlike traditional ablative skin resurfacing techniques, dermapen does not cause any damage to the epidermis, thus ensuring quick recovery with no pain or discomfort and virtually zero downtime.
Mild to moderate scarring can also be treated with Chemical Peeling or Microdermabrasion. Both these technique work by peeling off the top most damaged layers of skin. This not only helps even out the skin texture but also improves skin tone. Multiple sessions of power peel may be required to achieve desired results.
