Acne Scars

Postby scar_history » Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:52 pm

Hi, I'm a male, 20 years old and I have mild acne scarring on my cheeks. I would say my acne seemed like a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. I have more than a few pitted/ice pick scars, but they're not very deep. Most of my scarring is mild but very visible due to my fair complexion. I have never really been on any skin medication or anti-acne treatment. Basically my skin has been untreated and I never really cared since I've had enough charm, but as I am heading into showbusiness I'm looking to improve my appearance.

I was wondering what product/cream/etc has been proven to be effective in treating these scars. My skin is on the sensitive side so I would prefer a treatment without much complications. I have realistic expectations; I don't expect them to heal completely and I am planning to go do laser surgery in the future. In the meanwhile what other natural remedies are available?

Let me know if you need any more information, and thankyou so much for your help.

Do people in this forum just advertise their goods? I was looking for actual advice.

scar history@ Have you consider looking into getting a derma roller and a good scar reduction cream?

Scar reduction creams like Scar Esthetique is very popular because of the results it gives-- just read the reviews on the product. It also has ingredients like silicone to soften scar tissue, arnica to reduce inflammation, and antioxidents to get rid of free-radicals.

Derma Rollers actually work by allowing creams/lotions/serums to better penetrate the skin-- and get the "good stuff" to the layers of skin beneath. The needle action actually stimulates collagen and elastic production-- the stuff that provides structure/support to the skin! By increasing collagen production - you are essentially plumping up the skin. Not only can it be used to minimize the appearance of acne scars, it also helps out with signs of aging, and pore size. You also mentioned you are planning on laser surgery and by using the derma roller you actually could be getting your skin in better shape for the procedure. I will attach a link so you can see the two products. We actually have a "package" of the two together so if you did decide to get it-- you would save on shipping and on the actual products if they are bought together-- at the very least it doesnt hurt to to check them out :)
Here is the link: http://bit.ly/cUeL12

If you have any questions about either one please feel free to message me!

Good luck with the Show biz!

A friend of mine also has the same problem. She has spent quite a considerable amount of money on dermatologists, but the acne scars are still there. She's looking for a less costly yet effective way to get rid of her acne marks.

Hi all,

Here is a brand new product we just added that will both target the acne scars on the face and also prevent future acne from forming.

Image
Microneedle LED Light Skin Dermal Roller System: This roller uses LED light technology to kill acne causing bacteria on the face, while penetrating the acne scars on the face promoting new cell growth. Using this product with a scar cream such as Scar Esthetique to help further reduce the perseverance of the scar. Pretty cool stuff right :wink:

Happy Healing!

Coconut Water is great for many things. Coconut water has the five electrolytes that are already in our bodies. This includes potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, sodium and calcium. I drink a bottle after each Bikram yoga class I take. Coconut water adds moisture to the skin, can cure acne scars, helps remove excessive oil in the skin and in the scalp and has cleansing and toning effects on the skin. You can apply by washing your face with the water and/or drench a wash cloth and lay it on your face.

Since your scars are by your own definition mild, you might play with the Dermaroller. No topical application is really going to help you, or at least certainly nothing sold over the counter is going to help. If you want to get serious the big jump is to fractionalized ablative CO2 laser such as Fraxel Re:pair
