acne scars treatment

The worst part of dealing with teenage acne is the scars that are left behind even after the acne has gone away. These dented scars can dampen the sufferer’s self esteem like anything. Since ages people have been trying different natural remedies to get rid of unsightly acne scars but most of them miserably failed to deliver. Even those recipes that are effective require a lot of time and patience to deliver. But in today’s era of technology, people have everything but time. Everybody wants effective and instant results.

With rapid progress in aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery, getting rid of acne scars is no more a tough task. A combination of home treatments and cosmetic procedures can be tried to effectively eliminate these unsightly and live a more confident life.

Home Remedy for Acne Scars:

Numerous DIY home remedies can be tried for ridding acne blemishes. Vitamin C has been found to be an effective therapy for improving the appearance of mild to moderate scars and skin texture. Mix freshly squeezed and one tablespoon of honey to make a thick paste. Apply this pate on your scars and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with normal water and pat dry. This will not only help heal the acne scars but will also bleach your skin, improving the appearance of blemishes on the affected areas.

Egg white is another tried and tested home remedy for acne scars. Break three eggs and separate their yolks from egg whites. Whip the egg whites till they become fluffy. Apply beaten egg whites on the affected areas. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.

Medical treatment:

Microdermabrasion and Chemical peeling are two effective cosmetic procedures used to improve the appearance of acne scars. Both these procedures work by removing the top damaged layers of skin to reveal healthier and smoother skin underneath.

For stubborn scars, laser skin resurfacing is probably the best cure. Fractional CO2 lasers are used to treat acne scarring. Short pulses of carbon dioxide lasers are used in a fractionated way to cause small wounds in the scar tissues. The healing process not only improves the appearance of indented scars but also stimulates collagen production, resulting in a smooth and supple skin free of acne scars and blemishes.
