Do’s and Dont’s for acne scars!

Feeling down because of your acne scars? Well, don’t worry because there are these tips AND never forget that Satori Laser has your back 

There are two main types of acne scars:

  • Hypertrophic or keloid scarring. These scars are caused when the body produces too much collagen as acne wounds heal, resulting in a mass of raised tissue on the skin’s surface.
  • Atrophic or depressed scarring. These scars develop when there is a loss of tissue. There are two common types of atrophic scarring. “Icepick” scars are usually small, yet obvious holes in the skin. “Boxcar” scars are depressed areas, usually round or oval in shape with steeply angled sides, similar to chickenpox scars.

Do

excercise
  • Exfoliate. Occasional exfoliation can improve the appearance of scars, removing dead skin and reducing the depth of the scars.
  • Eat more fiber. Fiber removes toxins from the body that can clog pores, causing them to swell, burst, and form scars.
  • Exercise. Exercise increases blood flower so that oxygen and nutrients are properly distributed throughout the skin. Sweating detoxifies the skin and can help prevent the formation of acne cysts that can lead to additional scarring.
  • Give up on acne scars. New techniques – some non-surgical – can dramatically improve both the depth and appearance of acne scars.

Don’t

  • Tan. Overexposure to the sun can darken scars and make them look more prominent.Irritate inflamed skin.
  • Overwashing or scrubbing scarred areas can further reduce skin elasticity and heighten the appearance of the scar.
  • Pick at scars. Bacteria from unwashed fingers and nails increase the risk of additional cysts forming, leading to the development of a larger scar.
  • Give up on acne scars. New techniques – some non-surgical – can dramatically improve both the depth and appearance of acne scars.
