Popular Ways to Treat Acne Scars

By | acne

Acne scars can be such a painful reminder of a time when you may have felt that your appearance was entirely out of your control. Not only is acne physically uncomfortable, but it also leaves emotional scars in addition to physical ones. An ideal way to erase the constant reminders is to have treatment for acne scars, and there are many incredibly effective and popular options available.

PRP Facials

PRP facials are platelet rich plasma injections that are created from your blood. Mixed with nutrients, the PRP injection is going to improve circulation in your skin, and cause the areas treated to take on a healthier and rejuvenated look.

Laser Treatments

Currently there are two ways that laser treatments may be used to address acne scarring. There are non-ablative and ablative lasers. The non-ablative treatments are incredibly relaxing and stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This restores elasticity that is lost as collagen production decreases with age. However, it also heals the skin, meaning it can diminish the appearance of your acne scars.

Ablative treatments are a bit more complicated and actually destroy the damaged skin cells in the area of scarring. This cues them to reform and re-grow newer and healthier cells. However, many people hoping to get rid of acne forever, can achieve it with this treatment, and enjoy the added bonus of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, too.

Fillers

Also called dermal fillers, they make your acne scars disappear by fleshing them out and filling them in. These fillers are the same options used to erase fine lines and wrinkles, and in just one session you can see those unwanted marks erased and a smoother skin surface emerge. However, these are one of the acne scars treatments that are temporary, and you may need to do maintenance injections every six months, or so.

Peels

If the idea of removing damaged cells and re-growing them appeals to you, chemical peels may be the right answer. These are made of different materials that remove the uppermost layers of skin, and force the cells to re-grow, often giving the skin a much smoother and healthier look, in addition to a radiant glow.

Eliminating Acne and Scars

Interestingly enough, many of the treatments to address acne scars are also treatments that can help you to permanently overcome adult acne at the same time. All of the remedies just mentioned can fill out the areas of scarring and the laser treatments and peels are ideal at eliminating much of the material that leads to adult acne in the first place.

Photofacials are also another approach to improving the skin and reducing the amount of acne and acne scarring. These use intense lighting to kill bacteria in the pores while also toning the skin. Eliminating any future acne breakouts is also eliminating any risk for additional scars.

Advanced Laser Resurfacing

Lastly, a treatment known as pixel laser resurfacing is a good way to treat acne scarring as it can address deeper scars and often begin erasing the scars in a single treatment. This is a more advanced method for those scars that are not treatable in any other way, and something to consider if your acne scars leave you feeling uncomfortable, unhappy or embarrassed.

Adult Acne Treatments That Really Work

By | Skin

When you were younger, you knew that your face was going to break out in pimples. You knew that acne was a normal part of your teen years, but you didn’t expect to continue to have breakouts well into your 20s, 30s, and beyond. The fact is, though society tells us that acne is an adolescent problem, millions of adults continue to suffer from acne throughout their lives.

Fortunately, though, there are adult acne treatments that really do work to reduce or completely eliminate breakouts and acne scars. Before you buy an over-the-counter remedy that will claim to cure your acne but will only leave you with cracked, dry skin, check out a few of the best options for getting rid of acne altogether.

Photofacials

During a photofacial, your skin will be exposed to intense light focused on a very specific part of the light spectrum. Studies have shown that this kind of treatment can offer dramatic improvements for skin tone and health. Light in the blue spectrum in particular has been shown to kill the bacteria deep in your pores that cause pimples and acne breakouts to form. Instead of drying your skin out with harsh cleansers and/or acne creams, you may actually be able to stop breakouts before they start.

Chemical Peels

You may also be able to rid your face of acne with a chemical peel. Chemical peels are made up of enzymes and vitamins that eat away the top layers of damaged and dead skin on your face. Those damaged, dead, and dying skin cells will often clog your pores, and they make your skin look dull and aged, too. With a chemical peel, you can treat your acne while rejuvenating your skin at the same time.

Laser Skin Treatments

If you’re like most adults who’ve battle with acne their whole lives, you probably have at least a few acne scars, even if you’ve tried your best to avoid irritating your skin, popping pimples, or doing anything else to cause scarring. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with those scars forever. Instead, you can opt for laser skin treatments. An ablative laser procedure will burn away the scar tissue, leaving behind healthy, beautiful skin and no acne scars at all.

You might also want to consider non-ablative laser treatment options, as well. Basically, with one of these treatments, the heat of the laser will stimulate collagen production. As collagen is the chemical that helps keep your skin supple and young, it will also help in preventing scar tissue from forming and keeping your skin looking gorgeous as you defeat your adult acne for good.

Dermal Fillers

Finally, dermal fillers can do wonders to make your acne scars disappear. You probably already know that these injections are often used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, right? Well, they can also fill in the crags and sunken areas left by acne scars. After a session of dermal filler injections, your face will be smooth and gorgeous once more.
