How to Make Acne Scars Disappear
Acne, a common skin disorder, generally affects 80% of youth and 5% of adult population. The scars left by battles with acne are damaging to egos and self-esteem.
Depending on the duration of the scars, there are two other classification groups: early or permanent.
Topical medications work well to fade early scars but surgical intervention is often needed for permanent scarring. Combinations of treatments are sometimes used for both types, depending on their severity. Along with the available topical medications, skin resurfacing procedures and surgical procedures are used, as well, for the most severe scars.
Surgical procedures are expensive treatment options and there are both advantages and disadvantages to this type of acne scar solution. Before utilizing surgery, physicians will evaluate the patient’s age, gender, history of medical problems, skin type, and scar type, among other things.
Sometimes, collagen or other injections can be used to raise the scar to skin level. These injections are called dermal fillers.
The “punch excision” procedure is frequently used by dermatologists when treating icepick or boxcar scars. This procedure involves making a small incision in the skin with a special tool, and stitching the edges of the skin together. This forms a new scar that heals with clearer looking skin. There is also a variation of this procedure, called “punch excision with skin graft replacement.” It is much the same as the original procedure except for the skin being sewn together. It is, instead, skin-grafted to repair the scarring.
Subcutaneous Incision is yet another procedure but is used primarily on rolling scars. In this procedure, a needle is inserted into the skin and cuts the scar tissue. The skin bruises greatly during this procedure but clears up in about 1 week.
Laser resurfacing burns the topmost layer of skin, lowering it to the original skin level. When you look at all these procedures used to treat scars, it is obvious that prevention is better than the cure.
To prevent scars from forming, try to maintain a healthy diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables and low in greasy, fatty foods. Also drink plenty of water, as this will help your body eliminate impurities. Finally, twice per day, use products that contain antibacterial ingredients and acne combating ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs), Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree or peppermint oil, and Vitamin A (such as Retinyl or Retinol). These helpful ingredients can be found in several of our products including Dab to Unveil, Dab to Refresh, Dab for Youthfulness, and Dab to Clear. Avoiding an acne break out might just save yourself a lot of unnecessary expense and humiliation.
