Acne Scars treatments and reduction

Acne can leave scars and there is not one heal-all treatment that works for everyone. However, there are a variety of possibilities that can help the scars and facial aftereffects of acne. There are over-the-counter skin bleaching treatments that you can purchase and use at home.

However, your best move is to visit your dermatologist, to find the most helpful, most cost-effective choices for your acne scars. Some possible scar care options include:

These options usually require repeated treatments, depending on the severity of your acne scars. Your dermatologist can help you make the best decision.

Surgery might also be considered. Punch excision is a procedure that cuts out each acne scar and then either stitches or a skin graft is used for each cut out lesion. Subscision involves needles insertion under the skin to ease the fibers beneath the scar.

There are also emotional scars that come with acne including depression, shame and other negative emotions. If you experience any of these, know that they are normal reactions, and ask your dermatologist or healthcare provider for help.
