Got A Lot Of Acne Scars? 2 Treatment Options

If you had a lot of acne in the past and now have acne scars on your face, there are treatment options available. These treatments will help the scars become much less noticeable to you and other people that look at you. Keep reading to learn about two of these treatments so you can start on the road to having a clearer face. 

Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure a dermatologist or other doctor can perform on your skin. They use a roller that has sterilized needles over your scarred area. This promotes collagen growth as your skin goes through the healing process. This will help the acne scars become much less noticeable. 

You may have to have more than one treatment if you choose this to help with your acne scars. This will depend on how many scars you have and the type of scars. The dermatologist can tell you more information on what you should expect. 

It generally takes a few weeks to see the full results of this treatment. This is because it takes time for your skin to completely heal and for collagen to grow. After this, however, you will notice the acne scars start to disappear. 

Common side effects you will have after this treatment include some skin irritation and redness. This will go away within a few days in most cases.

Fillers

Another option you have is using fillers. These fillers are made of fat, collagen, or other types of substances. The doctor injects the filler into the scarred area. The injections are not painful, but ask the doctor to wipe an anesthetic cream to numb your face if you prefer.

Fillers work by filling in the indented area of the scars and plumping up the skin. One benefit of this is you will see immediate results in most cases. This will not take the scars away completely, but they will become much less noticeable. If you wear makeup, you may not see them at all if you wear foundation. 

Over time, the filler will break down and your scars will be back to normal again. You will then need to return to the doctor to have the treatment done again. Your doctor can tell you how long you can expect this to last.  

Your dermatologist can tell you about other treatments available, such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and surgery if your acne scars are severe.
