Acne scarring is an unfortunate reminder of past skin issues. It seems extra cruel to have your acne cured, only to still have scarring left behind. In some cases, it’s almost as if the acne never went away at all. No one should have to struggle with acne only to be saddled with severe scarring. There are a few options available that can help fade acne scars.
First thing’s first, here’s some tips that will stop the scarring from getting worse. Avoid the sun, as sun damage can exacerbate acne scarring. Make sure to wear a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher and to avoid the sun during high noon, when it’s at its strongest and most damaging. Also, DO NOT pick and squeeze your scars. This goes for everyone–picking an acne scar will only make it worse, and will create one if there isn’t a scar already.
A lot of different products, creams, and oils claim to be acne scar remedies, but few provide the results many acne sufferers hope for. Vitamin E oil has been found to be ineffective and even counterproductive in treating acne scarring, while cortisone creams are still recommended by dermatologists. Kojic and Vitamin C have been found to lighten hyperpigmentation. However, the results obtained from these products usually take time. The last thing you want to do when trying to get rid of acne scarring waits for results.
Luckily, at Satori Laser, we offer skin resurfacing treatment that will significantly reduce acne scarring, whiteheads and blackheads, and hyperpigmentation, among many other things. We use the DiamondTome Microdermabrasion system to reveal the best skin that’s hidden under the battle scars. We simply use the wand device to scrape away dead skin to reveal a new layer of the epidermis, which lightens hyperpigmentation. It’s a short procedure, only about twenty minutes, and has little side effects or downtime.
It may require four to ten sessions to completely obliterate scarring, however, results depend on the individual severity of the scarring. Nevertheless, it is a faster and more effective way of dealing with acne scarring. We’re guessing that you’ve already dealt with more creams, medications, oils, and vitamins to get rid of acne scarring to no avail. That’s why the skin resurfacing treatment offered at Satori is your best option: it works far better and faster than anything else, revealing the best version of yourself underneath the damaged skin.
