The Aim of An Acne Scar Treatment
The aim of an acne scar treatment is to clear the spots and prevent the skin from scarring or repairing of the damage done. There are many types of treatments that have different specifications. A doctor will advise the type of treatment that your acne demands.
- Treatments could vary. Sometimes you require a cosmetic treatment or sometimes only medication would do wonders.
- Poor hygiene is not responsible for causing acne.
- Ironically, washing it more and more makes it worse.
- Acne is not a simple skin infection. The main cause is inflammation, overgrowth of bacteria, etc.
- It is not contagious.
Know the Exact Amount of Cleansing Needed:
Washing the face again and again may harm the affected area further. The skin should always be treated carefully. Oil-rich creams should be avoided as these may clog the holes of the skin.
Some people believe that acne cannot be treated by cosmetic treatments. However, treatments usually work well if used correctly and performed under experts.
Types of Acne Scar Treatments:
Benzoyl peroxide is a common topical treatment. It has three actions – it kills germs (bacteria), reduces inflammation and helps to unplug blocked pores. You can buy benzoyl peroxide at pharmacies, without a prescription. Benzoyl peroxide is also available in combination preparations used for acne. It can be combined with an antibiotic too. Benzoyl peroxide clears acne fast and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Retinoid is a cure-all for all skin problems. Retinoids can unclog pores that help other medicated creams and gels to work better. It also reduces the formation of acne scars. Retinoid pills treat oil production and bacteria that causes acne and inflammation.
Azelaic acid cream is used to treat mild to moderate acne. Azelaic acid also blocks the production of proteins necessary for the bacteria to survive. Azelaic acid is in a class of medications called dicarboxylic acids. It can only be used when prescribed by a doctor.
Dermal fillers can give you a more youthful look. The treatment is fast and easy. Fillers can be used a ‘volumizers’, plumping and lifting cheeks, jaw lines and temples; filling out thin lips and plumping sagging hands. They are also used to restore volume to the face where skin tissues have degenerated with age and formed wrinkles and fine lines. The process for using dermal fillers for acne scars is non-surgical. The least risks and best results come from using the right one correctly.
Antibiotic work by killing germs that contributes to the cause of acne. Antibiotics usually work well to clear inflamed acne spots and any surrounding skin inflammation. So, if you have mild acne with just blackheads and whiteheads, use a tropical treatment that unblocks holes in the pores. This means you will have a better look and less redness. Always take antibiotics with proper prescription and care.
