Acne is a real nuisance for everyone. Squeezing blackheads and pimples can cause marks or scars on the face. These small holes can be located on the forehead, cheeks, side of the face, and chin. That’s a fairly common situation that usually reduces people’s self-esteem, mainly young people and adolescents. Very few people can boast of never having suffered from this dermatological problem or only in adolescence. There is another group of people who suffer it constantly and intensely to the point that the appearance of pimples is suffered and their sequelae that to a lesser degree are spots and, when more serious, scars. If you haven’t yet read the first part of this blog, check it out now! So, let’s see how you can get rid of these acne scars.
Creams To Be Placed On The Face
Your dermatologist may indicate the use of creams that promote the formation of collagen to place on the face every day after cleaning the skin properly. Ointments are usually recommended for adolescents and young people who still have blackheads and pimples on their faces. Treatment usually takes time because while new blackheads and pimples are emerging, it will be necessary to maintain the treatment. For this reason, in this phase, the skin should be cleaned in an aesthetic and use the creams and lotions indicated by the dermatologist daily, thus keeping the skin clean, hydrated, without blemishes and avoiding the formation of scars. When the adolescent still has many pimples, and it is already possible to notice that some marks are being left on the skin, the acne treatment should be redoubled to prevent more scars from emerging, so the doctor may indicate the use of medications such as Isotretinoin.
Plasma injection is a treatment that consists of injections throughout the area to be treated that contain blood and platelet-rich plasma from the person. What happens is that when the blood is injected into the face, it is not entirely absorbed by the skin, which will form a clot and produce new collagen and fibrin fibres, causing the holes in the face to fill in, resulting in firm and uniform skin. This type of treatment must be performed by a dermatologist and has excellent results, although it is not the most common treatment to eliminate acne scars. Plasma injection is indicated for people who are not afraid of needles and cannot perform any other type of treatment.
Peeling With Acids
It consists of applying acidic substances directly to the skin to be treated, leaving it to act for a few minutes. As a result, the skin flakes off and a new layer of skin is born, firmer, blemish-free and smooth. The treatment is strong and removes the deepest scars on the skin permanently. The acid peel is indicated when people who no longer have any pimples or blackheads on their face are over 30 years old, which is when the skin becomes more flaccid, showing even more scars on the expensive. This type of therapy is an excellent option for many spots on their face, with different depths. The number of sessions required can be a maximum of 15, carried out once a week.
Filling The Skin With Hyaluronic Acid
It is a treatment done by the dermatologist and consists of applying injections to the face to remove the fibrosis points that cause the depression that gives rise to the scar, unifying the skin. The injections may contain fillers such as hyaluronic acid, acrylate, or one’s own fat, for example. The filling of the skin with hyaluronic acid is indicated in people who have acne scars that do not change their shape when stretching the skin and do not wish to carry out other treatments.
