Remedies for Acne Scarring

Whether you picked at a pimple or two as teen or you developed acne later in life, there is a chance you may have some scarring where blemishes didn’t heal properly. While these scars, like most, aren’t painful or irritating, many find them unsightly and wonder if anything can be done to get rid of them. That answer is yes!

There are several routes you can take to reduce the appearance of acne scars and achieve flawless glowing skin.

Ways to Repair Acne Scarring

Retinol Products

For an easy, at-home remedy, retinol products. These products, often available in creams, gels, and serums, can help improve the appearance of mild acne scars by improving the tone of your skin. While store-bought products or those from a medspa can help make slight differences, if you have more severe scarring, you may want to consider more effective treatments.

Chemical Peels

These treatments work by removing damaged layers of skin to allow your body to produce new, healthier layers, therefore reducing the appearance of acne scars. It’s important to note that chemical peels require a bit of downtime to allow your skin to properly heal, so you’ll need to stay out of the sun for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the intensity of your peel.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments are often the best course of action if you struggle with severe acne scarring since lasers are able to reach deeper layers of your skin to promote healing. Treatments such as photofacials can increase the rate of cell turnover and improve discoloration associated with scarring, while Icon™ laser therapy can reduce the appearance of acne scars with great precision.
