If you're looking for the best treatment
for acne scars, then you might want to read this further on. In this article
I'm going to discuss about natural and not so natural ways for treating acne
scars. After reading through, you will be able to decide on your acne scar
treatment with more clarity. That's the purpose of this article after all.
The Natural Ways for Treating Acne Scars
Rubbing olive oil into your skin has been proven to work. Olive oil is just a great natural way for treating your acne scars. It can reduce the visibility, but even more, it can totally eliminate them. Just be sure to rub your face 2-3 times a day and you'll start seeing the results very quickly.
Vitamin E oil has also shown some great results. The trick here is not to buy any creams that contain it, but rather to buy those cheap capsules in a drug store. When you come home, just break them apart and apply the oil into your skin. Just remember not to buy any acne scar creams whatsoever. Natural is always better.
Some people are swearing by the lemon juice. However, what I've found out is that the lemon juice won't help you get rid of acne scars directly. Rather, it will blot them out. Don't be discouraged though, the effects are seen very quickly also, if not even faster than by applying Vitamin E oil.
To give you even more ideas, I can mention using the natural products that exfoliate your skin. One such is oatmeal. By cooking it you're creating a natural mask for your face. Just apply it. The reason for this is that by exfoliating, your skin layers will be removed and with them â€“ those nasty acne scars as well.
One final way that I might suggest to you is by eating healthy food. You simply can't go wrong with this. When I was a kid, I had acne all over my face, and as a consequence, acne scars as well. Then, by a strange mixture of events in my life, I had to lose some weight, which meant- getting rid of all the candies and junk food. Not only have I lost some weight, my face started to shine again and since then I had no more problems with acne. Eating healthy food is one of the best ways for acne scar treatment, don't disregard it easily.
Medical Ways for Acne Scar Treatment
First of all, let me tell you: I'm not a huge fan of surgeries. Yes, acne scar surgery can be an effective way for getting rid of acne scars, but most of us can't afford it. Not even that, it's a very tiresome process after all. However, for your information, I will provide you with some ways of getting rid of acne scars the unnatural way. One of them is dermabrasion.
Dermabrasion is simply a cosmetical procedure by which the surface of the skin gets removed by abrasion. Be warned though, this process is very painful and generally, you will need anaesthesia. It also takes several months for the skin to regrow and heal up. This method works very well for the scars that have risen above the skin, not so much under it.
Laser surgery is also a very popular acne scar treatment choice for those with healthy pockets. Studies have shown that not only is laser treatment effective against acne scars, but also prevents acne from growing again.
Well, I hope that by reading this article you've chosen your best treatment for acne scars. My advice is always- go natural. You won't see the immediate results, but you also won't have to recover from the tiresome experiences as well. Not to mention, you'll save a lot of money in your pockets.
