Have you ever thought about how to get rid of your acne scars? Acne can cause lots of blemishes on the skin in such places as the face, shoulders, neck and various other places.  These scars can remain visible and can be very frustrating.  Don’t be discouraged. There is an answer to preventing acne scars.  The most important thing to remember is to avoid picking at any acne because this only spreads infection and causes scaring.  There are various different herbs, such as chamomile, lavender, bergamot, dandelion root, juniper, poke root, witch hazel, and burdock root, which  can be used to help prevent toxins from building up in the body.  You can also take vitamin supplements, such as Vitamins A, C, E and B6, to aid in healthy skin.  You should try to avoid having your face exposed to the rays from the sun since this can also cause acne scars.

There are dermal fillers such as collagen that can be injected into the acne scar to help with the development of new skin on the surface.  It will help to give your skin a healthier look.  If you have acne scars such as ice pack or deep boxcar scars then they should be treated with a different method known as the punch excision method.  This is where they use a tool similar to that of a cookie cutter with a diameter of anywhere between 1.5 m and 3.5 mm.  They will also use anesthesia to help sort out the scar tissue and it can also help to suture the ends together.  If a new scar appears where the old one was then they use the skin resurfacing method.  This is the most commonly used form of treatment to cure acne and other skin conditions.

YAG lasers and carbon dioxide are the most common treatment types when using the laser resurfacing of acne scars.  This involves using a laser to burn a precise hole in the skin that will then heal and replace the old skin with the new skin.  No one wants to have acne or enjoys looking at acne but fortunately there is a cure.  What you need to do is to take a systematic approach and ensure that all steps to prevent acne from occurring and treat the existing blemishes so it won’t leave any undesirable marks on your face.

If acne does occur then just follow the above steps and you can help to prevent new scars from forming and eliminate the old ones all at the same time.
