Quick, lasting results
There are tons of new and improved acne scar treatments available today. There is no specific best treatment option available. The correct treatment depends on the severity of the scarring and the type of scarring present in the patient. Choosing the right treatment is a vital part of clearing up acne scars and being informed of all the options available can help a patient make the correct decision. All treatment options have their own characteristics but results are all the same, they help improve acne scarring.
For patients that are unfortunate and have very large and deep acne scarring, injections of dermal fillers are commonly used to improve scarring. These injections go underneath the surface of the skin and help provide the patient with newer, cleaner and healthier outer skin cells. If the patient decides that dermal injections are not for them, there are multiple other options available. Laser therapy is also an effective treatment plan. The laser works to get rid of the dead skin cells making up the scar on the skins surface. Once those skin cells are removed, new and healthy skin cells can replace them. In addition to laser therapy, topical acne scar creams are common. Another effective therapy used is microdermabrasion. It uses tiny powerful crystals combined with a vacuum to exfoliate and remove skin cells that are not wanted. Also known as particle skin resurfacing, this technology is also used for other skin issues like sunspots and can erase imperfections. A dermatologist will prescribe most of these types of healing medications. Similar to topical acne creams is what is known as a chemical peel. A chemical peel takes a base acne scarring medication and combines it with an acid to fight acne scars. This combination of acne scar fighting medication is placed on the patients face and will then remove all of the dead skin cells on the outer layer of skin. This in turn leaves room for new and smooth skin cells to replace the dead skin cells.
No matter how simple or how severe acne scarring is, there is an answer. Finding the correct treatment path is just the first step in healing acne scars. The results will vary depending on what treatment option is decided upon. Is important for clients to remember that each treatment will vary in recovery time although all of them are relatively short.
