Laser treatment is used to improve surgical and traumatic scars. The pulsed dye, carbon dioxide and erbium YAG laser are used for this purpose. This technique is often used for the improvement of the color and texture of scars. Treatments are performed with topical or no anesthesia in the office setting. The appearance of scars is improved with the help of the IPL and Kenacort injections. Additional medications are given to control pain while scars resurfacing using dermabrasion are performed under anesthesia. The damaged skin tissue is removed with the help of a medical-grade sanding device and this process literally does skin resurfacing. A raw area is created on the skin by this procedure that gets healed within two weeks. Deep scars remain almost unaffected. In the efficacy of various treatments for scarring, scarring tissue types are almost always a determinant factor. For people whose skin has been scarred from acne for a long time or is pigmented, the procedure is useful.
Scar removal with collagen implants or fat injection may be associated with allergy or incorrect positioning. Superficial and atrophic scars may do well. Keloids and Ice-pick scarring tissue do not benefit. The results of collagen or fat injection are temporary and they must be repeated every six months. Scar removal creams or serums such as Hippocrates are used. Acne Treatment could be used for proper treatment of various forms of scarring. It is advisable for people who still have active breakouts. For those who stopped having breakouts for at least six months, Hippocrates scarring serum is suggested. Different people continue this treatment for different period of time because of highly individualistic nature of scars. In these treatments you are provided with a moderate peeling (skin resurfacing) that can be incorporated into your skin care regimen at home. These serums are highly potent with therapeutic effects and therefore, extreme care must be exercised in use of these high-potency serums. There are some patients whose skins are still acne prone and are likely to develop blemishes from time to time. Serums are also more advisable to these patients. This approach will efficiently help with scars resurfacing without any side effects. Besides this, you will be enjoying a nourishing retexturizing serum. This serum not only roots out facial scars but also revitalizes and protects your skin against free radicals and aging process.
