Do you want to get rid of acne scars? Acne scars can be very unsightly especially when these are deep and when you have lots of them.
It’s hard to remove scars that are many years old, especially acne scars. Most scars are discolored, deep and very unsightly. But there's hope.
Here are some of the most effective scar treatments we have come to know.
Scar removal techniques such as exfoliation are the most common way to get rid of acne scars.
Exfoliation removes the outer layers of skin exposing new, better, and younger-looking skin.
You can exfoliate at home with the use of loofas or by using face towels to remove old skin layers. The best way to exfoliate is by using warm water and mild soap.
There are also commercially–prepared products such as facial cleansers or facial washes that contain microbeads that remove dead skin and exfoliates the skin.
You can also try everyday items such as lemon juice to gently remove acne scars. Lemon has natural acidic properties that erode the outer layers of skin and provides healthier, whiter and blemish-free skin.
There are over-the-counter medications such as retinoid creams. They remove scars by stimulating skin cells to multiply.
Apply retinoid cream in the evening on the affected area will help reduce scars.
Consult a dermatologist for the ideal strength and a recommended brand to help remove acne scars fast.
Other ways how to get rid of acne scars is through the use of aloe vera. Inside the aloe vera leaf is a gel that has anti-inflammatory properties as well as compounds that can heal the skin.
If none of these strategies for getting rid of acne scars work you, then you may resort to aggressive treatments such as surgery, using dermal filler, or phototherapy.
A dermatologist will be able to give you a more suitable treatment option for your particular skin type and skin needs.
Consult your dermatologist or skincare specialist as soon as possible.
