REDUCE ACNE SCARS
Acne is an inflammatory condition that can be so severe that it can leave scars. Although they are difficult to eliminate, there are a number of treatments to mitigate them.
Although they never disappear at all, there are effective treatments that significantly reduce the scars left by acne. Between chemical peels and a state-of-the-art laser, CLC has the best tools to combat this problem.
Acne is a very common inflammatory condition that affects 80% of young people between the ages of 20 and 30. However, sometimes, it is so severe that it leaves scars. __________, a dermatologist at ProCerus, explains that in an advanced degree of the disease cystic nodules that cause deep lesions occur and that, even after treatment with a specialist, they usually leave depressed circular scars that are called ice peak. While they cannot be erased at all , there are treatments to renew the skin such as peels and lasers that in approximately four sessions which visibly attenuate the scars. The best thing is that, unlike old treatments, patients do not need recovery time and can immediately return to their work.
Chemical peels: For shallow scars, located in the epidermis or outer layer of the skin. They are made with chemicals – such as salicylic or glycolic acid – in much higher concentrations than those found in mass-selling creams. Therefore, due to the risk of irritations and complications, they should be performed under the strict supervision of a dermatologist.
Microdermabrasion: This treatment usually complements that of chemical peeling and consists of sanding the skin with mechanical abrasives such as microcrystals that, in addition to removing dead cells, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin that give the skin a smooth appearance.
Laser: It is the most advanced technology to erase acne scars. It is a fragmented laser that, through heat waves, penetrates to the dermis and produces microscopic lesions that activate cell regeneration from the deepest layer of the skin, which attenuates even the most marked scars. Like microdermabrasion, it improves collagen and elastin structures.
- No treatment manages to erase the scars completely.
- To prevent them from appearing, the only effective measure is to treat acne with a dermatologist, who, prescribing topical creams and medications, will prevent the disease from progressing and leaving scars.
- Unless it is a specialist who does it, skin rashes should never be pinched.
- Unlike what is thought, the sun is not good for acne and only contributes to pigment scars.
- Sun protection should be used throughout the year.
