The Best Way to Treat your Acne Scars


The Best Way to Treat your Acne Scars

Persistent acne can be a frustrating skin condition to live with. Acne occurs when the skin’s natural oil quality changes because of sweating or an alteration in hormones. This lower quality oil can then plug hair follicles, trapping dead skin cells inside. The result is a pimple or blackhead rising from the skin.

Prevent and Reduce Scars Before They Form

Scarring caused by acne is one of the most common reasons people seek scar treatment. Severe acne or the squeezing and popping of pimples can result in acne scars. Squeezing and picking at the skin only makes the situation worse. It can push dirt and bacteria deeper into your pores, causing increased inflammation and irritation which lead to increased damage and chance of scarring. If acne is starting to cause scarring on your skin, it’s recommended that you keep out of the sun. Direct sunlight may lead to hyper-pigmentation in the new skin over the wounds, leading to darker, more distinct scars.

A Multi-Faceted Treatment Approach

Acne scars are one of the many types of scarring that the 3-step Scarology treatment system is intended to heal. As with other types of scars, the Fruit Acid Exfoliator should be applied in the morning to remove unhealthy and dead skin from the scarred area. This stimulates the surrounding area and encourages the production of new skin cells to replace the old. After rinsing off the Fruit Acid Exfoliator, the Ultimate Scar Removal Cream can be applied to the area. The cream will soothe the skin, reduce inflammation and hydrate the area to promote healthy skin cell formation. To keep the scarred area soothed and nourished, the cream should be reapplied in the evening and Silicone Sheets should be placed over the scars before you go to bed. With the scarred area kept clean and nourished during the day and compressed overnight, you’ll be giving your skin ideal conditions to replace the scar tissue with new, healthy, beautiful skin.
