Acne Scars Treatment

Treating Your Acne Early to Prevent Scars

Perhaps one of the most difficult effects of acne is the physical scarring it can leave behind, especially of left untreated. Even the mildest form of acne can scar, but the more severe types can leave very visible scars that won't go away on their own.

There are things you can do to try to avoid these scars, like properly cleansing your skin, or refraining from popping zits, as this can cause scarring, but this doesn't mean scars won't develop. This is especially true in more severe types of acne where the lesions are on the skin for longer periods of time than in milder forms. In cystic acne, the nodules or cysts can stay on the skin for weeks, or even months, and can leave behind very noticeable scars.

Types of Acne Scars Treatment

There are different types of acne scars, and different treatments for each. They are classified in the following manner.

 Ice pick scars

Characterized by the appearance of deep pits on the skin, ice pick scars are most common in a sign of classic acne scarring.

 Boxcar scars

These are angular scars, usually occurring on the temple and cheeks, and can be superficial or deep. Boxcar scars are also very similar to the scars left by Chickenpox.

 Rolling scars

They give the skin a wave-like appearance.

 Hypertrophic scars

Thickened scars are hypetrophic scars. These scars may be associated with some of the more severe types of acne.

Seek Acne Scars Treatment through a Physician

To get rid of acne scars, seek treatment through a physician. A combination of treatments are available that show good results for many people. Treatment for acne scarring depends on the type of scars you have, as well as your skin type. Most of the success of treating acne scars has been for those on the face. It has been found that those on the back and chest do not respond as well to treatment.

One of the best ways to prevent acne scarring is to prevent acne. Taking steps to fight and prevent this condition will minimize the chance for scarring. Also treating the acne you do have as quickly as possible after it appears can help prevent acne scars.

It is also advisable to seek the help of a physician when you aren't sure how to best treat your acne or its scars. Some scar treatment requires medical attention, and a doctor can help you find the treatment that will work best for you.

Treat Acne Early to Prevent Scars

Understanding your skin type, type of acne, and type of scarring associated with it is also important. If you treat your particular type of acne from the onset, thereby, also working to prevent additional breakouts and problems, you can prevent the formation of deep, lasting scars. In some cases the scar can be removed by laser treatment, but this is only in more serious cases where the scars are deep.

Understanding your problem will help you work toward a solution.
