Treatments For Acne Marks

Steven asks…

What treatment should i use for acne pigmented scars?

I have alot of acne pigment marks on my face. I’m thinking of going for some facial treatment to help remove those pigmented scars. Can anyone recommend me what type of treatment to go for from experience? I heard micro debrasion may be used to help remove those pigmentation but does that work effectively or how many treatments must i take before i see clear results?
If micro dermabrasion is the way to go.. then how long usually do i have to wait between treatments?

Dont put oil on your face unless you happen to be forty too. You should see your doctor for some differin gel and/or clindamycin topical solution or benzaclyn cream. The latter two are just two
topical disinfectants (there are other ones) that will kill the acne bacteria on your face and they are better formulated than drugstore products (if you dislike BP you’ll get clindamycin topical solution).

Differin gel is a synthetic retin, so like Retin A, it is capable of speeding up your skin shedding cycle and keeping your pores clear of clogs (also helps with red marks, acne scars, and wrinkles). It’s weaker than retin a so its not so harsh and it also has some sort of antimicrobial action to it so its basically everything you’d want in an acne treatmen.

ALSO: all of the effective treatments for acne make you break out worse and you usually have to use them for at least a month before you start to see real improvement. Spot treating btw, is not effective because all of that acne on your face took weeks to form (its too late to stop what’s already formed) so the best way tor treat acne it to prevent it from forming (you cannot do that with face washes). This could be a big reason why nothing has worked for you.

If you have painful inflamatory acne then you should really consider going on antibiotics, birth control, or even accutane if none of the other treatments work for you b/c this sort of acne needs more than topical treatments to keep it under control, and you definitely need to keel it under control otherwise it can scar you. Changing your diet also helps this sort of acne (food doesn’t cause it but it can inflame it and make it worse). Usually people’s acne is aggravated by dairy, sugar, processed or fatty foods etc.

If you dont have insurance then go to Acne.org–in fact go to acne.org regardless cause everything you want to know about acne is on that site.

How do I get rid of back acne scars?

I have acne marks all over my back and shoulders they are flat but brown in color. The acne is under control now. I’m afraid to take my shirt off, would never go swimming in a pool, and it sucks because I’m athletic. I really want to do microdermabrasion, however I do not know how effective it really is.

Try putting toothpaste (paste, NOT gel) on your face, cover it with a bandage, and keep it on all night. When you wash it off in the morning your acne will look better. The astringent and surfactant nature of the toothpaste will help diminish the appearance of pimples. But the toothpaste has been known to burn sensitive skin of the face, so be careful. If your face does burn, stop acne treatments and work on healing your burn.

Try using Bentonite Clay, a natural mineral powder which has been known to absorb impurities and help neutralise the skin’s oiliness, and can be found online. Mix 2 tablespoons with a dash of cold water and smooth over the face as a thick paste. Once dried gently wipe off with a flannel or sponge.

Another way to zap pimples is shaving cream. Apply it to your pimple and it will dry it up. It disappears by morning, but washes your face after waking up. If nothing is working for you, drink four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted with water daily. It works very well for some people and is worth a try. Another good solution is aloe Vera gel fresh from the plant, taken orally.

Best of Luck….
