Prevention is best: Preventing acne breakouts is the best form of treatment. Once formed, scars are amenable to variety of techniques depending upon whether they are depressed, pitted, boxlike or elevated.. These include fillers and subcision to free up and elevate depressions and boxes; punch-excision or pinpoint chemical peels to remove pits; and intralesional injections and scalpel removal for elevations.

Combination therapy: There is not a method to remove acne scars. Acne scars can only be improved. Acne scars can be improved with a variety of approaches (not sure what natural means- no artificial ingredients?- there is not a herbal or food substance which will improve acne scars): subcision, cross tca, medical roll cit, dermabrasion, laser and other treatments, including prp.

Facewash: If you are not already, wash your face with a sensitive face wash (non-soap) at least twice a day. This will help prevent additional issues.

No: If somebody's telling you "natural is best" has led you to refuse scientific acne treatment until now, you have my sympathy. Benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid derivatives, clindamycin, systemic antibiotics and ultimately the tough rx Accutane are all there. Even a dermatologist can't remove scars though they can be made less visible with high-tech.

Forgive my frankness: This is the 21st century and you owe it to yourself to use remedies that actually work. Your physician can manage acne using compounds that are gifts from mother nature -- benzoyl peroxide, the retinoic acid derivatives, isotretinoin, and the wonderful antibiotics made by natural micro-organisms. Acne scars can be partially hidden using techniques available to dermatologists.

Multiple options: Getting control of the acne process is the first step. Depending upon the issues present, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser treatments are among the most common treatments utilized. A good daily skin care regimen is crucial. Seek consultation from a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
