Pimples leave a blemish or a pit on your face. Scars are trails left behind by pimples. Pimples and subsequent scars are a very common concern among teens and young adults.
From pesky, dark hyper-pigmentation marks, to red spots, to deep craters–acne scars are among the most dreaded skincare issues.
Before getting treatment for acne scars, it is important to clear your acne. New acne breakouts can lead to new acne scars. Having acne also means that your skin is inflamed. Inflammation reduces the effectiveness of treatment for acne scars.
If acne scars bother you, safe and effective treatment is available. Treatment can diminish acne scars that cause depressions in the skin. Treatment can also safely reduce raised acne scars. Many treatments are available.
Treatments include Derma-rollers, Deep Resurfacing Peels, Subscision, laser treatments, and fillers.
The key to effective treatment is to select the best one for each scar type. For example, a patient who has some deep scars may benefit from getting a filler, which adds volume to the skin. This may be followed by laser treatments.
