Hi, i have many acne scars from severe acne on my face. all different types. some small. some large, some shallow and others deep. i was wandering if laser treatment is the best way to go for them. any permanent dicoloration. how well does it work?

admin answers:

Laser treatment can work wonders for some people. Others do best from a combination of treatments including lasers, peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal scraping. Some have amazing results with only using a treatment like Retin-A or an Obagi Tretinoin treatment product used regularly. It all depends on your skin type and the severity of the scarring.

Scar removal treatment that gets rid of acne scars the best?

I have a scar removal gel that works GREAT for my stretch marks and other scars, but I’ve yet to see this dramatic or any improvement in my acne scars.

They’re mostly on my forehead and some on my chin. They’re raised, not indented, if that means anything.

I don’t mind spending a little more money or waiting a month or to for a quality product that WORKS.
Would rather not have any procedures or surgeries, but I’ll keep an open mind.

# pply sandalwood paste with rosewater and leave it overnight over the scars. You can even apply a mixture of sandalwood paste and black gram paste.
# For dark acne scars use lemon juice. Before applying, clean the scars with warm water and dab 1 tsp of lemon juice into a cotton ball and apply it on the scars and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to apply sunscreen prior to going out in the sun as lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive.
# Cucumber with lemon juice or honey with lemon juice also helps. Honey also helps for chicken pox scars. However people with oily skin should avoid the use of honey.

If you like natural ways to get rid of acne scars, you can try one of the following:
1) Apply Egg Whites to blemished areas, wait for a few minutes till they dry, then wash off. Do this 2 – 3 times a week.
2) Aloe Vera is excellent in helping to heal, as well as reduce swelling. Apply it on your face after your daily cleansing regime.
3) Baking Soda – helps to remove dead skin, therefore hastening the healing process. After application of baking soda with water, be sure to moisturise or use Olive Oil to restore the moisture.
