Acne Scar Removal Creams
This method is popular for dealing with some of the smaller types of acne scars. These creams contain acids and vitamins that will strengthen, smooth and protect your skin. The contents of most of these creams are capable of renewing your skin to a certain degree. For any newly formed acne scars, this is the method we would recommend. It is a cheaper method compared with the following; however, it will only be effective to a certain degree as creams will only heal the weakest of acne scars. Any medium or heavy acne scars should be dealt with by more intense means.
Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulse Light, or IPL, is a treatment using light beams of different wavelengths in order to treat various skin conditions, including acne scars. The treatment penetrates the epidermal skin layers and begins to heat up the lower dermal layers. The heating process will improve collagen production which will allow your skin to smooth and tighten. On top of that, the increase in collagen will rejuvenate your skin and help things such as freckles, pigment, acne and acne scarring. This is a stronger method compared with the acne scar removal cream, however, it is still not as effective as the following two options. If you have severe acne scarring, you should look to the next options. However, if your acne is not too bad, this method is affordable and effective.
Thermage CPT is a non-invasive facelift treatment. This treatment uses a device to heat and penetrate the epidermal skin layer. The sessions from this treatment will heat up your epidermal skin layers and literally burn off your acne scars. The Thermage treatment will also improve your skin healing rate so that the tender skin can heal back quickly. This treatment is highly effective for dealing with acne scars. You may experience some discomfort and tender skin for a few days, but the result will be clean smooth skin.
PicoSure Laser Treatment
PicoSure Laser Treatment directs energy to specific parts of your skin that require treatment. The energy forms PressureWaves which will break up impurities into smaller particles. Once those particles have been broken up into small enough pieces, the body will naturally eliminate them from your system. This is our highest recommended treatment as it has been proven successful in the removal of most impurities on the skin’s surface. The laser is capable of removing tattoos, pigment, acne scar, and more or less any other impurity on your body. This is the most successful, yet easiest treatment to undergo.
