Combination therapy. A variety of approaches are necessary to improve not remove acne scars. Specific therapy is dependent on the type of scars and skin type. Potential therapies include subcision, cross tca, medical roll cit, dermabrasion, laser and other treatments, including prp.
Varies. If your scarring is flat and only has a surface change, use of a variety of treatments may help (laser, chemical, mechanical dermabrasion to resurface, etc). If depressed (tissue loss), may need removal and suture repair to minimize the appearance. Too many vaiables to answer this question without a photo and more history. Good home care using mild abrasive cloths often help remove the old skin.
I have acne scars all over my cheeks and the side of my arms, what medication do you recommend to get rid of them?
Serious Rx. I am VERY sorry you've ended up with scarring, and even more sorry that you're not already under the care of a competent physician who should have been managing this all along. A combination of topical benzoyl peroxide plus an antibiotic may be enough, or the oral contraceptive pill, spironolactone, or isotretinoin may clear you. You can't remove the scars but you can stop new ones from forming.
Surgery or Laser. If the scars are superficial, topical retinoic acid and a broad spectrum sunscreen may be sufficient to augment the recently developed acne scars. If the scars are old, deep, and pin point (ice pick scar), surgical excisions with suture closure will be optimal. If the acne scars are broad and deep, multiple sessions with a fractionated laser would gradually improve their appearance.
Get evaluated. I can see or examine "these" scars. But scars can not be removed. Scars are for life. How ever there are treatments to inprove the scars appearance and make them look better. See a good plastic surgeon.
Acne Blemish. The treatment depends on the problem causing the blemish is it a hyperpigmented scar, a depression, an ice pick, a cyst, etc. Depending on the diagnosis treatments include: bleaching agents, peels, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, skin needling, camouflage, tattoo, excision, grafting, fillers, fat grafting, puch grafting, soft tissue rearrangement, etc.
Depends. Often a dermabrasion or laser abrasion may work. If the scar is deep, injectables help. Hope this helps.
What type of acne scars do I have and how can I treat them? They are dark surface scars I have had for months hard to get rid of. I have dry skin only
Hmmm. You as what type of acne scars do I have - however without a photo - it would be impossible. Frequently one gets post inflammatory hyperpigmentation after an acute exacerbation of acne that will improve with time.
Dark spot treatment. Dark surface spots left over after acne clearance is called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The inflammation caused by the acne lesion basically leaves behind a stain on the skin. These can be hard to treat but often times will resolve after several months. A daily sunscreen is recommended. Other treatment options can help such as topical retinoids, chemical peels, and hydroquinone.
What type of acne scar? They are brown surface scars on my dark complexion, been there for months. I have dry skin. What can I do to get rid of them
? really scars. Do you really have scars or are they just discolorations? If you run your hand over the surface of your skin does it feel smooth or bumpy. If it feels smooth they are just discolorations. You can talk to your doctor about the various bleaching creams are available if they are not truly scars.
First control acne. Acne is a complex disease treated with a variety of approaches ranging from topical anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, as well as hormonal, medical regimens and surgery. Each case is individually treated and it is difficult to recommend a single cure. See a dermatologist first.
Multiple option. Acne scars come in several "flavors." there are ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars and atrophic scars. Acne scars are difficult to treat. There is no "magic bullet." scar excision/revision, injectable fillers/fat, subcision, laser, chem peel, dermabrasion, etc. Many treatments can "improve" the flatness of the scar, and/or texture of the skin, but it will not make your skin flawless.
So many ways. Your age it is likely hormone related. Proactiv may be good for you to start. Use a good moisturizer and cleanser. Topical retinoids are effective, ipl, lasers and chemical peels can help. See a physician for more personal recommendations. For scars chemical peel works, as does microneedling and PRP.
Derm. See a cosmetic dermatologist.
Scars & VitaminE. Life holds no guarantees as we know, but vitamin e oil placed directly on the scar regularly can help to fade or remove the scars. You can get a bottle of it in the drug store. It's inexpensive and worth a try; just be patient.
Resurfacing. Once you have the acne scars there is no way to get rid of them. Skin resurfacing by laser, dermabrasion or chemical peel is a way to improve on them. Hope this helps.
Acne scars. Once active acne is well controlled, scars secondary to acne can be treated. Options for patients who desire treatment of scars include minor surgical procedures, laser therapy, chemical peels, injectable soft tissue fillers, and other interventions.
Procedures. There are many procedures to remove acne scars, such as laser resurfacing and dermabrasion. Some scars shrink and fade with time. But if your scars bother you, talk to your doctor. He or she may refer you to a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon.
Acne scars. There are very many ways to treat depressed acne scars, but you should know that none of these are hundred percent effective. The first thing you should see a dermatologist to see if there are amenable ways to treat these lesions on your face. This can be done with the lasers, injections, and all types of therapies, but you should ask him or her about this treatment.
A few options. First, if the scar is red or swollen, use an over-the-counter cortisone cream to calm the skin. You can also do laser therapy or filler therapy, within one to three sessions, laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase new collagen formation to help fill in acne scars. Wear plenty of sunscreen, sun makes the scars worse. Hope this helped :].
