One of the worst things about acne is the marks and scarring they leave behind. They linger on and sometimes never go away. When our skin is inflamed, there is typically a mark left behind while the skin heals. This can go away over time, but if there is collagen damage, permanent scarring can occur in the form of keloids or depressed pores that look like an indentation.
Here are a few ways to reduce this unsightly condition.
This is probably the best way to avoid acne marks and scars. Follow an antioxidant-rich diet to reduce inflammation and avoid the refined sugars and simple carbs that promote the growth of the bacteria that causes acne.
We know you’ve heard this many times before, but don’t pick! This is the fastest way to leaving permanent scars after the breakout heals. Get a facial with a licensed, experienced professional aesthetician if you really need extractions.
The sun’s powerful UV rays can darken breakout marks while they’re healing. This can make their appearance stick around longer. Wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine to prevent this from happening.
Lighten and Brighten
Use a lightening product to fade scarring over time. There are many natural products you can find that have no side effects. One of our best-selling products is our Brightening Cream. It is enriched with vitamin C, a powerful brightening agent with a bevy of other benefits. Our Brightening Cream is also very effective at eliminating rosacea.
Retinol products are excellent for removing the dark spots and keloids that acne leaves behind. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a super effective product for this issue! It promotes cell turnover and accelerates renewal, which fades the spots and hyperpigmentation caused by acne and sun damage. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a best-seller because its gentle formula works without causing irritation.
We offer two excellent treatments at Carole Maggio Day Spa that help reduce the appearance of acne scars: microdermabrasion and stem cell facials.
