Is there a good way to get rid of zits & acne scars naturally?

Is there a good way to get rid of zits & acne scars naturally?

Healing scars: When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow and bringing healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. As healing occurs, new tissues fill in that are different than normal and less elastic. This is a scar. Over time it will fade in color but always be there. ...Read more

Help please! is chemical peeling product or raser is good for get rid of acne scars?

Laser is better: Laser resurfacing is better to improve acne scarring. I recommend the fraxel laser. Four treatments are usually required, but the results will be significantly better that with chemical peeling. The fraxel works well for acne scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles and photoaging. Fraxel can be used on most skin types, and all over the face and body. The fraxel laser is fda approved. ...Read more

Unfortunately : Unfortunately you will not be able to get rid of acne scars for that amount. The gold standard for acne scar improvement is fractional laser done multiple times - and that is usuallly between $500 to $800 per session. If your scars are merely dark areas, you should use a good sunblock all the time and try a few of the dark spot correctors (neutrogena is one) any over the counter treatment will only be minimally effective in correcting discoloration, but if a big issue is dark marks, anything that helps is a plus. Red marks will eventually resolve on their own if you don't "worry" the skin by picking or using abrasive scrubs. As for actual scarring that causes a shadow because of the depth, your only solution lies in a medical office. The big factor to control is your acne to prevent further scarring. If you are still breaking out, most dermatology visits will fall under insurance - as will the topical and oral medications. ...Read more

How can I get rid of acne and acne scars?

Rx: I start with topical clindamycin, with a retinoic acid derivative if there are many blackheads and benzoyl peroxide if not and the person can stand it. I add a systemic antibiotic if needed; dermatologists have bigger guns that are a bit dangerous but worth it. Nothing will remove scars, but dermatologists have lasers and surgery to make them fade if that is what you wish; some actors like theirs. ...Read more
