Your Acne Scar And How To Treat It

May 8, 2008
For many, the look of acne scars can be troubling and many seek out treatment options that will clear marks from the skin, leaving the skin radiant and supple. There are many skin care treatments available for scarring now and it is always a great idea to explore what options may work best for your skin if you feel uncomfortable with the look and feel of your skin.

For an acne scar which is very deep and affects the epidermis as well as the dermis, certain scar removal techniques may work better than others. It is important to remember that a trained dermatologist should be consulted to make sure that you receive the very best skin care possible. Most of the modern skin care treatments available today treat scars by purposely damaging the epidermis and parts of the dermis with the intention of having the skin heal in thus resulting in new skin that is more radiant and likely scar free. How effective these treatments are will depend on a few things: firstly, the state of the skin prior to treatments and the way that the skin is cared for after treatments. If your skin had an acne scar that went deeper than the dermis for some reason, this may be difficult to remove but it may be possible to diminish it.

For a deep pit acne scar, it may be necessary to use excision as a method which does not necessarily involve the treatment of the epidermis over the entire face but just involves one single scar which is removed from the skin surgically and sewn over for healing. This form of treatment may leave behind a smaller lined scar in exchange for the initial scar, but can later be blended into the surrounding skin areas and lessened in severity. This is an option for particularly deep or stubborn marks. For this type of acne scar, excision may be a viable option. Furthermore, there are other ways to treat an acne scar which may be particularly dark or deep on the surface of the skin.

What is popular in today's modern skin care field is the use of lasers and dermabrasion to remove the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. These techniques cause the skin to scab over and heal, as the lasers and dermabrasion machines purposely cause damage to the skin and then allow the skin to heal anew. This technique can be very effective depending on the skin and the way that the skin handles the treatment. There are some risks involved and it is important to be aware of the risks prior to undergoing any treatment.

If you have a particularly deep and visible acne scar, there are many treatment options to you which a trained and experienced dermatologist can discuss with you. It is always a good idea to have realistic expectations and to be prepared for any post-treatment skin care. As your skin heals to create an even more beautiful appearance, taking care of it and preventing further inflammation and infection are very important.
