Everyone is beautiful, no matter what marks, wrinkles, or scars they might carry. But it is absolutely normal to feel self-conscious about these blemishes! So, whether you decide to learn how to coexist with your acne scars or seek to reduce their effects, your decision is personal and should be celebrated. If you are looking to remove those scars, here are several great options for you to try!
Hydrate & Stimulate Collagen
A foundation of strong and hydrated skin is key in reducing the appearance of scars. Check the labels on your skincare products, and look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid draws water, thereby plumping the skin cells, reducing the appearance of all types of blemishes by smoothing the skin. Another ingredient to consider is retinol. A common misconception is that retinols cannot be used on sensitive skin, but retinols have come a long way since they were first introduced to the market. There are different strengths and preparations that make retinols safe for nearly every skin type. Additionally, retinols balance oily skin, brighten dull skin, and have a tightening effect that reduces the look of lines and wrinkles.
Thanks to today’s innovative technology, there are plenty of laser treatment options for those who are looking to remove or reduce their acne scars. Lasers improve the appearance of acne scars by helping to propagate new, healthy skin growth, as well as remove outer layers of damaged skin. Before your laser treatment, make sure that you practice good skin hygiene by wearing sunscreen and avoiding strong chemicals. We pride ourselves on being “acne experts” and have special packages geared towards treating active acne as well as acne scars.
Chemical peels are a great tool to fight acne scars. They remove all the dead, damaged skin in order to revitalize your face and reduce the appearance of scars. Our approach to chemical peels is progressive and we pride ourselves on ensuring that we maintain the integrity of your skin as we guide you through the peel process. Chemical peels can be daunting for some clients, and we promise we have options to make your experience safe and comfortable.
