Subcision
Cost: Up to $1000 per treatment.
Procedure: Subcision is a treatment where the upper layer of skin is detached from the deeper tissue, allowing blood to flood into the opening and raise the skin in the treated areas. This is usually used to treat shallow and rolling scars and often requires multiple treatments.

Punch Treatments
Cost: $50-$150 per treatment.
Procedure 1 – Punch Replacement: This method involves physically cutting out the entire scar and replacing it with a skin graft.
Procedure 2 – Punch Excision: This method involves physically cutting out the entire scar and then stretching the surrounding skin closed around the wound and letting it heal, thus avoiding the need for a skin graft.
Procedure 3 – Punch Elevation: This method is similar to subcision; it involves cutting the scar loose from the deeper tissue below it and then letting it heal. This usually results in the treated area elevating slightly, which can diminish the appearance of certain types of scarring.

Chemical Peels
Cost: $600-$800 per treatment.
Procedure: One of many different types of acid is applied to the skin, allowed to sit for a period of time and then removed. The acid removes the top-most layer of skin. This usually results in a slightly smoother end result and is helpful for very mild scarring.

Dermabrasion
Cost: $1200-$2000 per treatment.
Procedure: Dermabrasion (not to be confused with microdermabrasion) is a process where the top-most layer of skin is removed mechanically. The skin to be treated is first numbed, and then a rotating abrasive disk is used to ‘sand’ off the top-most layer of skin. This is a painful procedure and does require some down time. Many people who have tried this approach have found that it provides only short-term results, and that the scars do grow back over time.

Laser Resurfacing
Cost: $2500+ per treatment.
Procedure: This is very similar to dermabrasion in that it involves physically removing the upper-most layer of skin to achieve a smoother effect – but instead of abrasive disks or pads, lasers are used. This is very expensive and the results appear to be very similar to those reported by people who have undergone dermabrasion – the scars can return.

Acne Scar Creams
There is certainly no shortage of creams and balms that claim to cure everything from impotence to scarring, but do they work? Most of the reports we have found say “no”, however there are always a few who claim success with these methods, so here is a list of the ones we have found that have had at least one reported success story associated with them (and we only found two!).

Creams containing cocoa butter and vitamin E help keep your skin soft, elastic and healthy. Regular use of such creams may help scars diminish naturally over time. We would recommend combining this with an overall healthy lifestyle.
Apply a 3x solution of medical-grade hydrofluoric acid (or a product which contains it) to the scarred area twice daily for one to two weeks. Do this ONLY under the supervision of your dermatologist because this CAN damage your skin.

Any tips to get rid of acne scars fast and natrually?

Hi I’m 14, I have lots of acne scars on my back and chest. I had this about 3 years, I couldn’t wear summer dress or swim wear. Plz help I really wanna get rid of it.

Bio oil. Start using it now while you’re young and your skin is more regenerative. The ability to heal scars lessens as we age.

How to get rid of acne scars?

I get acne every now and then, but it’s not as bad as it used to be, plus i cut down on the soda. But my acne leaves these ugly scars on my face and it’s not cute. I’m a pretty girl (i’m not cocky) but when i’m up close to someone i feel less than confident. How do i get rid of my scars? I’ve tried lots of remedies and nothing seems to work. Who knows for a fact on how to get rid of acne scars?

admin answers:

I had the exact same Problem as you, I got the doctor to give me some cream. Called Duac. You use it once daily and you store it in the Fridge after you open it. I got rid of the scaring Pretty fast and i Still use it to stop Acne from coming back. Hope this helps.

PS: Soda doesn’t give you Acne, its you skin pigment and the grace from your hair (that nearly all teenagers / young adults have)
