Acne can be a real struggle to deal with. Unfortunately for some, the struggle doesn’t end when you’re skin clears up. Acne delivers a one-two punch, as when it leaves it can leave behind unsightly scars.
When you get a spot, it’s a result of your skin pores becoming clogged. When acne clogs the pores of the skin, bacteria fill the pores, cause it to become inflamed and on occasion filled with puss. As bacteria enter the pore, it triggers a reaction in the immune system, which signals that an injury has occurred to the skin. This signal, causes our immune system to attack the bacteria and then repair the damage. It’s this repair that causes the formation of scar tissue, which unfortunately does not fade with the acne.
However, all is not lost. Just like the condition itself, acne scars are treatable. There are two types of acne scars, “ice-pick” scars and keloid scars. “Ice-pick” scars are caused by a reduction in skin tissue, and look like a depression in the skin surface. Keloid scars are a little nastier, and they are caused by an increase in scar tissue. Through the course of this article, we will talk you through some tips and tricks about how best to deal with the scars left behind from your acne.
Tip One: Acne Treatment
Treatment of scars starts before they form. Where this may be too late for some readers, those who are still suffering from the condition can act now. Picking at your acne will only accentuate the scarring. As you pick, more bacteria is able to enter your pores, which only serves to accentuate the immune response. A great immune response generally leads to more scar tissue. By seeking proper treatment of your acne, you can significantly reduce the risk of scarring.
Tip Two: Dermabrasion
The second treatment option is dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a treatment that scrapes away the upper layers of your skin. This includes the scar tissue. Dermabrasion is a valid treatment option if your scars are relatively superficial, however, if they run a little deeper than desired, dermabrasion is unlikely to completely remove all of the scar tissue so you’ll still be left with some residual damage. Given the cost of this treatment, it’s worth consulting a medical professional before subjecting yourself to it.
Tip Three: Excision
Excision should really only be considered as a last resort, if your scars really are unbearable. This is because excision is essentially a skin craft. It’s a surgical procedure where the scar tissue is cut out and the subsequent whole repaired via stitching. If your scars are really severe, an area of skin taken from another part of the body, often the thigh or the buttocks, is taken and transferred onto the scarred area. Neither of these methodologies are particularly pleasant and are not for the faint hearted.
