How to remove acne scar using natural remedies?

How to remove acne scar using natural remedies?

Can't be done: No one, not even a dermatologist, can remove a scar. The dermatologists can make them less conspicuous using lasers, fillers, abrasion or surgery. No "natural" home remedy works. Truth is that no kid should have to have acne scarring in the first place; if a preference for "natural healing" caused you to be scarred as a teen, you'd be right to be angry. But your scars should be treatable if u want. ...Read more

Get real Rx: Thanks for writing and please forgive my frankness. Someone may have told you that "natural is better". In the case of acne -- as, sadly, for most illnesses -- this is mostly disinformation.

What are some natural remedies to remove acne scars on your face?

None: The short answer is there are no natural remedies. The long answer is: it depends on how you define "natural".

What are some home remedies to remove acne scars?

Not a good idea.: Several options are available, but none can be done at home. The most effective treatment, in my opinion, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible.

CAN'T. Don't try!: Scars are permanent and there is no surgeon or surgical, laser, cream, or cosmetic treatment in existence that can eliminate or remove scars completely. Expert plastic surgery can trade bad scars or poor orientation for better ones hidden in lines of expression or along skin lines, but there will still be new scars. Sorry! stay away from any household products--they can burn or scar you further! ...Read more
