REMOVE DEEP ACNE SCARS? Acne Scarring Removal Treatments!
Acne-Scar Removal Options
Whether you choose to have your acne scars treated is an individual choice. Some people opt to have their acne scars got rid of because they’re emotionally affected by the appearance of the scars. Others have acne scars that are disfiguring and serious and opt to have them eliminated to bring back the look of their skin.
Speak with a skin doctor as quickly as possible if you have acne scars. He or she can recommend therapies for your scars and discuss methods you can prevent future scarring.
Typical scar removal treatments include:.
Dermabrasion. This very reliable scar removal therapy utilizes a high-speed brush or other instrument to resurface your skin and eliminate or minimize the depth of scars. You will generally need several days to heal afterward.
Micro-dermabrasion. For this less extensive type of dermabrasion, a skin doctor or aesthetician makes use of a spray of really small crystals instead of a high-speed brush to get rid of surface area skin. More than one treatment may be needed, and there is no downtime.
Chemical peels. Chemical peels can minimize the look of superficial acne scars and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation around a healed acne lesion. A chemical peel could be administered by a doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, or medspa aesthetician and includes applying a chemical to your skin to remove its external layer, offering it a smoother, more even look. Depending upon the strength of the acid used, you may experience inflammation and peeling for a couple of days later.
Retinoic acid. Certain tissue scars need to not be treated with conventional acne scar removal treatments. Rather, retinoic acid cream applied directly to the scar can help decrease its look, especially in the case of keloid scars.
Lasers. Your skin specialist can use a laser to get rid of the outer layer of your skin, shape locations of acne scars, or lighten redness around recovered acne lesions. Various types of lasers are used, depending upon whether the acne scar is raised or flat. More than one laser treatment could be required and, depending upon the laser used, you could have to a number of days to recover.
Fillers. A compound such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, or fat can be used to “fill out” specific sorts of acne scars, especially those that have actually resulted in a depressed look of the skin. Because fillers are ultimately taken in into your skin, you will need to repeat filler injections, generally every couple of months, depending upon the type of product used. There is no downtime for recovery from this treatment.
This type of skin surgery removes acne scars by separately trimming, or cutting out, the scar. This strategy is most commonly used to deal with pitted acne scars.
With skin grafting, your doctor will certainly use a small piece of normal skin to fill in an area of marked skin. This technique might also be used when an acne scar removal therapy, such as dermabrasion, leaves a huge tunnel in your skin.
Keep in mind that while these treatments can improve your skin’s appearance, they might not be able to completely restore it. Be reasonable with your expectations, but discover your alternatives with a dermatologist.
