Microneedling helps your skin produce collagen and elastin and can be used on all skin types. There may be some redness, swelling, and bleeding after treatments, but these will subside quickly. Microneedling is done by your skincare professional and involves using fine needles to prick your skin, causing micro-wounds. As your skin heals, new collagen is formed that helps smooth out the scars and improves your skin’s appearance.
Chemical peels essentially burn off dead skin cells and leave new smooth skin with smaller pores. Chemical peeling is a safe and effective way of getting rid of acne scars, bringing better blood circulation to the skin tissues, and removing dead skin, including superficial scaring.
Fillers are injected into your skin to raise and plump up depressed areas that include acne scars. Dermal fillers also stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen. Use filters that contain hyaluronic acid (Restylane and Juvéderm), polymethyl methacrylate with collagen (Bellafill), or poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra). Discuss with your professional what dermal filler would be best to reduce acne scarring.
Acne clears up eventually, but scars usually stay behind and last for many years. There are things you can do to get rid of acne scars. Ask your Skincare professional for their recommendations.
Some recommended treatments for acne scars include vitamin E. Vitamin E works as an antioxidant that can help fade scars. Keep your skin moisturized and use vitamin E to repair damaged tissue.
