How to remove acne scars & redness

If angry acne left you with some nasty after-effect scars, don’t fret! These few tips will be able to help you understand the scars, and get you on the way to the baby-smooth skin you once had!

Types of scars:

  1. Pitted

Some forms of pitted scars include ice pick, rolling, and box scars. These scars are formed as a result of under production of collagen beneath your skin surface, resulting in little dent-like marks all over your skin. While it is one of the most difficult scars to remove, it is still possible!

  1. Raised

These scars appear raised or bumpy above the skin’s surface. Also known as keloid or hypertrophic scars, they are the direct opposites of pitted scars, and are formed as a result of overproduction of collagen beneath the skin surface.

  1. Hyperpigmentation

These ‘scars’ appear as dark brown or red marks that are flat and smooth. Contrary to popular beliefs, these marks are not actually scars but are post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that eventually fade on their own in 3-6 months. However, for some people, it could take years fade off completely.

Types of treatment:

For Pitted or Raised Scars: Laser resurfacing treatments could help by delivering micro beams of energy into the affected area, destroying the deeper tissues of the dermis while leaving the upper epidermis untouched. This stimulations collagen production and natural healing within the skin, resulting in more evenly pigmented skin that looks brighter and smoother. Other forms of treatment include surgery or a face-lift to tighten skin.

For mild cases of Pitted/Raised Scars & Hyperpigmentation: Fresver Beauty’s Diamond Peel Facials or PTF Plus Therapy could help! Diamond peel is great for mild scarring as it removes debris and old dead skin to reveal the newer baby skin underneath. As a result, scars are visibly lightened and skin is fairer and bright! For a more intensive treatment, the PTF treatment is a great option as it effectively targets pigmentation deep within the skin dermis.
