How To Get Rid Of Acne Scars

acne-scarAcne scars are not just embarrassing and ugly, but may also be quite demoralizing and infuriating. Nonetheless, there are several ways of  acne scars treatment, or at least make them less visible. What strategy you need to use, to get rid of these scars, will depend upon how severe the scars are. Before you try anything, it is advisable to check with your dermatologist, as to what is the best course of action in your particular case. Anyways, here’s a list of a few methods that are usually used to remove acne scars.

Do it at home

If the scarring is mild, there are several procedures that you can carry out at home to get rid of these acne scars. There are specially formulated products which are easily available at most drugstores and cosmetic stores. There are two most popular methods that you can use at home, the first one being derma-abrasion and the second one being chemical peels.

Whenever you go shopping for these products, just scan through the ingredient list, to be sure that the product contains either retinol or Alpha Hydroxy acid. However, people with sensitive skin must avoid both these methods because rashes and inflammation may occur. For milder and more natural alternatives, look for aloe Vera or Lavender based products, as both these natural ingredients are believed to reduce scars.

Professional methods

Laser resurfacing is one of the most popular methods that are used by skin care professionals, to remove acne-scars. The procedure involves removing old skin cells with a laser beam, to promote the growth of new skin cells. However, be cautioned that laser surfacing usually results in an uneven looking skin tone, especially so if your skin shade is darker. Apart from this little glitch, this method is quite promising and though you may experience some redness and inflammation for a few weeks, the acne scars will leave your skin permanently.

Professional derma-abrasion is another popular method, in which scrubbing machines are used to remove the damaged skin cells. Before the scrubbing, the skin is either numbed with local anesthesia or is frozen, to pass up the pain. It’s quite a fierce method and will leave your skin raw, inflamed and painful for several weeks after the treatment.

Removing Acne Scars

So you still have those acne scars that make you feel low? Here are some tips on how to get rid of them.But before you start, categorization of the scars is necessary.

There are two types of scars- there are those with a small depression and they are called the rolling scars. Then there are the ones that are narrow and deep. No matter what type of scars amongst the two types you have, they can be healed to help you have your skin back to its normal, healthy form.

These scars have been formed because there was a spot that was infected and lacked a lot of water, and when the infection was removed, the place was taken over by the scar.

Hydrating the skin is the finest way to start healing these scars. Sufficient amount of water in the skin will not only help it boost the immunity by making the skin healthy but also as the cells will grow due to conducive conditions, this will result in the gaps being filled and the scars to get eradicated. Drink plenty of water and keep the skin moisturized as well.

Rosehip seed oil is considered to be effective in treating acne scars. It helps the skin regenerate and if the skin is healthy, it accelerates the process. It nourishes the skin and the natural content of the oil has no side effects. It is recommended that the oil be rubbed on the skin twice every day.

Ensure that you adhere to a balanced diet once the acne is removed. It will not only help the body get the right nutrients that will help prevent any chances of acne occurring again, but will also help in building up of cells faster and hence the scars to get healed more quickly. Combining rose water with a paste of sandalwood and applying it over the scars over night will help.

The modern techniques involve a procedure called Dermabrasion, where the top layer of the skin is chafed using a machine and as the skin heals, the scars heal too. The laser resurfacing is a popular mode of treatment as well.
