It’s a popular treatment of laser resurfacing where the professional or doctor removes the outer layer of skin by pressing laser beams into the surface. The process will contour the areas of the acne-affected region and results as lightening of the skin. The patient will heal within the span of 3 to 10 days.
Fillers are a healthy option for small facial scars done by injecting collagen or required fats under the skin which leads to the filling of indented scars. Although this method works for a shorter period and one needs to take the injections regularly according to schedules fixed by the doctors.
One of the most effective treatments for scar reduction opted by dermatologists. Dermabrasion is done using a high-speed brush and other instruments to either resurface or regenerate your skin cells. The process will reduce or even remove the depths of scars effectively. One can heal with the portion of the skin within 2 to 3 weeks.
Micro-dermabrasion is chosen when there is the presence of severe scarring. In this process, the topmost layer of skin is removed by the handheld device and the scars may be reduced within two to three rounds of it. It is well-effective on the deeper scars which will be less noticeable after the treatment.
Also known as collagen induction therapy which involves a needle-studded device to prick the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen present in the surface. It is recommended as a safe and simple technique to reduce scars positively. The treatment is popular in the cases of resolving stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
Some people face the puckers around the acne patches; Botox injections are meant to heal and reduce those types of acne scars. These injections are made up of botulinum toxin which fills the skin with necessary nutrients and relaxes the surface of the area. It will last for some time and one must take injections periodically.
In this technique, a chemical solution is applied to the affected skin area which will peel off the outer layer of the skin and gives the smoother, delicate and glowing skin texture. However, this process is suitable for every skin type to reduce the scars.
Minor surgery is performed to reduce acne by cutting out the piece of the scar and repair the patch with a stitch or a skin graft. A small part of the skin is taken from another part of the patient’s body, usually from behind the ear. It will take 2 to 3 weeks to recover from the surgery and one must take necessary precautions as well.
