I have really deep marks from acne how do I get rid them?
Hi Beauty Queen,
Here are some extra info on acne scar teatment based on my 25 year knowledge and self experimentation;
Because many people do not recognize and seek out the treatments for acne that are available to them, they let their outbreaks develop too far. In these cases, an unfortunate side effect is often the development of scars that can last for years to come. Luckily, there are options available for individuals seeking acne scar treatment.
Acne Treatment and the Formation of Scars
Well before acne scar treatment is necessary, the acne itself can often be dealt with directly. Many times acne will disappear on its own. These mild cases are disturbing but common. However, there are other cases in which acne can develop into cysts and nodules that will form scars if they are left alone. If these cysts develop too much, acne scar treatment might not prove to be enough in removing the resulting scars.
As soon as it appears such cysts and severe acnes are developing, you should seek out a dermatology professional and discuss your treatment options. There are numerous procedures and medical treatments available for overcoming acne before it begins to scar.
Acne Scar Treatment Methods
There are currently six different forms of acne scar treatment, each designed to deal with specific forms of acne that might occur. Because acne has a different effect on the skin of each person afflicted by it, there need to be different treatment methods available for those different skin types. In some cases, a dermatologist might choose to use a combination of more than one treatment method to deal with acne scars.
The six different forms of acne scar treatment include:
• Laser Resurfacing
• Chemical Peels
• Punch Techniques
Each method varies from the others in both cost and intensiveness, requiring a different commitment from both you and the doctor performing the procedure. Depending on the severity of the scars and the method best suited to your skin, the most expensive option may not be the most effective.
How Acne Scar Treatment Methods Work
Augmentation, one of the more commonly used and least expensive methods listed above, involves the injection of a secondary substance beneath the crater-like scars formed by acne to level the skin. Collagen is a common substance to accomplish this. However, collagen requires repeated visits to the dermatologist to continue treatment when it wears off. Fat from other areas of the body is also used in some cases to the same effect.
On the other side of the price spectrum, Dermabrasion and Laser resurfacing offer much more expensive options that can be very effective in certain cases for acne scar treatment. However, they are not always effective and can often result in minimal or no results.
Deciding which method is best for your situation begins by discussing the various options available to you with your dermatologist. Some options offer long term results while others are more short term but cost significantly less. Acne scar treatment is available for you in any of a number of forms. It is only for you to decide which will be best for your situation.
