Laser resurfacing. For the right patient, ie acne scars, acne under control, light skin, laser resurfacing can work great. It usually takes more than one treatment, and it takes time to see the results, but scar reduction is very significant. There is a wide variety of lasers and skill levels. Good equipment and experience make a big difference, don't shop just for price, you get what you pay for.
Dermabrasion. You can't get rid of acne scarring, but you can revise the scars and dermabrasion helps to hide them.
Tretinoin cream. Visit your dermatologist for a prescription night-cream tretinoin. This is a very effective cream for mild acne (blackheads, whiteheads) and will help with scars as well.
Won't touch scars. I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. You also know not to use just an antibiotic as monotherapy for acne -- you also need a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid or both. Laser Rx, filler injection, or microsurgery may help the scars. Best wishes.
What to do if I have a moderate amount of acne scars and pimples and I neeeeddd to get rid of it in 4 days?
Specialist consult. Please forgive my frankness. I'm sorry you've got scars. This is because your acne was neglected. This shouldn't have happened, but nothing will clear your scars short of a specialist (derm, plastic surgery) for an injected filler, laser or microsurgery. Topical benzoyl peroxide plus your physician's prescription-strength Rx will control new lesions as long as you comply but there's no quick fix.
Acne. May benefit from laser resurfacing. See a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist.
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 :].
