The Skinny On Acne Scars And Their Treatment

Dec 10, 2007
Even though you've gotten rid of your acne, scars become a second problem. Moreover, if acne is not treated properly, it can come back and you become prone to more acne scars. Scars are actually the result of an impaired healing process in the skin. The good news is there's definitely a way to get rid of acne scars.

The main goals of an anti-scar treatment should be to reduce skin irritation, reduce inflammation, promote healthy healing in the skin, exfoliate rough and broken skin, and sooth the skin. Infections from bacteria, viruses and fungi can irritate the skin and therefore impair its ability to heal properly, thus the result of scars. Inflammation causes oils and bacteria to rupture and cause scarring.

Many products contain ingredients that may help acne scars. However, if the skin doesn't absorb them easily, they become ineffective. Products like the ZENMED Scar and Hyperpigmentation Treatment Kit contain naturally based ingredients that can easily be absorbed by the skin. The kit's Skin Eraser topical treatment absorb into broken skin and repair tissue underneath. This way, scars are eliminated effectively, along with other skin conditions such as melasma and discoloration.

There are many other ways to treat acne scars. You may apply topical treatments, but exfoliation is just as important. Exfoliate at least once a week. If you just keep on applying topical treatments, they won't be able to slough off dead skin cells effectively. When dead skin cells accumulate on your skin, your skin pores become clogged. As a result, redness and inflammation occurs and your skin becomes highly susceptible to scarring.

For effective sloughing of dead skin cells, use skin care systems or kits. What's great about skin care systems is they contain cleansing and exfoliating properties that work together to effectively treat and prevent acne scars. The Scar and Hyperpigmentation Treatment Kit also contains an exfoliating product called the Microdermabrasion Complex. This product has micro-spheres that eliminates dead skin cells without the irritation.

The problem with a lot of exfoliating products is that they have large beads, which can do more harm than good to the skin. What is special about the Microdermabrasion Complex is not only does it give your skin a clearer complexion, but also allows the Skin Eraser to absorb deeper into the skin. This makes the kit effective on both old and new scars.

Using these types of products can dramatically change your complexion from dull (due to discoloration from scarring) to smooth and radiant. However, preventive measures should also be taken alongside the use of these products to ensure the health of your skin. One of the best ways to prevent future acne scars is by making lifestyle changes. You can start eating more fruits and vegetables, taking in more fiber, drinking enough water, and exercising regularly.

The skin is a quite complex system. When treating acne scars, make sure you not only reduce the appearance of scars, but also treat what lies underneath to prevent future scarring.
