Acne scar removal – which options are there?

acne scar removal treatmentsYou already know about my passion for property programmes such as Homes Under The Hammer or Escape, but I’ll tell you another little secret of mine. I absolutely love watching beauty videos and make-up tutorials on YouTube when Ben is taking over the TV or I just want to relax a little.

I’m still pretty useless at applying my own make-up, but I find it interesting to see just how many girls and women are suffering with acne scars. I have never been a particularly spotty teenager, but every now and then I break out really badly and the spots that I get, mainly in my chin area, leave unsightly dark marks that I sometimes struggle to cover up with my concealer and foundation.

Now, that is something that I can live with, but unfortunately, there are people out there who suffer with much more severe scaring, so-called ice pick scars that occur when the body produces too much collagen that builds up around the wound and leaves unsightly pits in the skin. Covering these scars with make-up resembles Mission Impossible, if you aren’t a professional make-up artist, but there are other options available, if your acne scars are really bothering you and getting you down.

Acne scar removal is a popular choice for those that see their every day life affected by their skin condition and although not as cheap as make-up it can be a great way to improve your confidence and quality of living.

They all work towards the same goal of removing the external layers of the scar tissue cells, leaving the scar either heavily faded or completely removed.

There are three different types of treatment all of which are aiming to remove superficial skin cells that make your skin look lumpy and bumpy. Peels use ingredients that make your body shed your upper skin cells, microdermabrasions physically remove them and unclogs blocked pores and lase treatments is a more targeted way of removing surface cells without causing damage to your healthy skin cells.

Which treatment is the best option for you solely depends on the level of scaring and the results you are after, so if acne scar removal is something that you are seriously looking into, make sure to book a consultation to discuss options, prices and results – a combined treatment might be way forward for you.
