If acne scars are a concern for you, and you’ve been wondering – How can I get rid of acne scars, this article looks at several treatment options that have the potential to resolve them.
Acne scars can be treated with a variety of skin rejuvenation methods including:
- Microneedling with Growth Factor or Hyaluronic Acid
Microneedling rejuvenates the skin using a pen-like medical device with sterile needles. The microneedling pen is moved across the skin, and creates tiny micro-channels that stimulate the formation of collagen. The growth factor or hyaluronic acid is then infused in the skin. This regenerates the soft tissue and leaves the skin firmer,thereby reducing the appearance of acne scars.
- Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
Fractional CO2 laser treatment is one of the most effective solutions for acne scars. The fractional CO2 laser treats only specific zones of the skin, and creates microscopic holes in the deep layers.This triggers the skin’s natural healing process, and leads to the production of new collagen that helps to smooth out acne scars. Improvements can be seen within 7 days of treatment.
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL devices emit short pulses of narrowly focused intense light that target the pigment in the acne scars. This improves the overall texture of the skin, and helps reduce the visibility of acne scars. It typically requires multiple treatments to achieve the desired improvement.
