How to treat acne scars ?
So finally your acne is all gone. Sadly red marks and acne scars are all over your face which can be really frustrating since you still can’t enjoy a clear skin. The good thing is that there a number of things you can do to support your skin in healing and fading the marks acne left behind. Below are some of the things you can try:
- Use a soap-free cleanser with a salicylic acid content. This helps clear the red marks left behind on your skin which are, likely, signs of product irritation. A gentle cleanser will help relieve and calm your irritated skin.
- Use a spot corrector that contains retinol and other melanin-inhibiting ingredients like kojic acid and azelaic acid.
- If your acne left you a moon-faced complexion, you should consider getting a clinic-based procedure like microdermabrasion and skin resurfacing procedures to help facilitate skin cell turnover. If you have deep marks, ask about Fraxel laser therapy and the possibility of getting fillers.
Contrary to popular belief, acne treatment for adults requires more than simple visits to the dermatologist for a prescription medication to get the cysts out. An effective acne treatment for adults involves a systemic approach to the problem — one that involves medication, proper skincare regimen and a lifestyle overhaul.
