Safe acne scar removal
Acne is usually thought to be a problem among teenagers. However, it has its share of adults to claim among the ranks. The issue that occurs with acne and source of anxiety for those who have to deal with this skin problem is the scarring that may be left behind. This can be a source of embarrassment, causing unwanted attention and discomfort. So the question is how to treat this situation effectively and safely. With the advancements in medicine today and especially in skincare you can find a variety of treatments that can work safely. There are creams which work topically and penetrate below the surface of the skin to remove the dead scarred tissue and give healthy clear skin a chance to grow. This process is referred to as a chemical peel. These creams contain alpha hydroxy or retin-A. These chemical compounds are applied to the skin to remove the top layer of skin and promote healing and new skin grows. Then there is microdermabrasion, which uses fine crystals to remove the surface layer of skin and scarred tissue. Once this is done new fresh skin has chance to grow. Of course we all know about the wonders laser treatments can do. The acne laser treatment uses focused light to remove the dead cells on the surface of the face leaving the good unscarred tissue unchanged. No longer do you have to suffer through anxiety of acne scarring. You can have clear radiant skin. Just remember never try to treat the condition on your own. All treatments should be discussed with your dermatologist to insure that the best and safest method is used.
