Are you seeking a safe and effective but invasive solution for your acne scars? Or wondering which acne scar treatment will be right for your skin? You have come to the right place. Some of the commonly used scar removal procedures have been listed below. Go through them and find out which treatment will be best for you.
If you have very mild scarring affecting only the superficial layer of skin then your doctor may prefer treating the condition with topical creams. There are numerous over the counter as well as prescription creams and gels available in the market to help you erase unsightly zit marks. Prescription creams containing Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Retinoid and Kojic acid are good for treating pimple scars. Besides improving the skin texture, these ingredients also help lighten acne blemishes.
If you have stubborn, indented scars that need excision or cryosurgery, dermal fillers may be worth considering. Your dermatologist will simply inject a synthetic solution in the indentations left behind by acne scars to raise the depressions. This is the safest and quickest way of raising acne scar treatment, but the downside is that they do not offer a permanent solution and need to be repeated every 6 to 8 months.
Chemical peeling is the most efficient, safe and reliable way of eliminating superficial scars. A qualified dermatologist will apply a chemical solution to the scarred areas, which will peel off the skin’s outermost damaged layer. Once your skin heals, you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of scars. Chemical peels are available in varying strengths from superficial peels, to medium peels to deep peels. Your doctor will determine which strength will be best for you, depending on your skin type and degree of scarring.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing procedure that works just like chemical peels, i.e. by buffing away the outermost layer of dead cells to achieve a smoother, fresher and healthier looking skin, free of acne scars and blemishes. A sand-blaster-type device is used by a licensed professional to blast the damaged skin with aluminum oxide crystals. A series of treatments is generally required for best results. Expect your skin to remain pink and sensitive for 12 to 24 hours after every session.
PRP treatment is a skin rejuvenating procedure that involves injecting Platelets Rich Plasma, taken from the patient’s own blood, into the skin using mesotherapy technique. The plasma injected into the skin triggers wound healing and also accelerates proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes leading to regeneration of skin cells. The treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production, thereby enhancing the skin texture as well.
If nothing works, go for Laser Skin Resurfacing and you will not be disappointed. The most commonly used laser treatment for acne scars is Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing. Laser beams of a specific intensity and wavelength are used to remove the damaged layers of skin and reveal healthier, younger-looking skin underneath.
