How to fade acne scars?
Rest assured, scars can be faded if treated properly. Mild scars fade naturally over time. However, more obvious marks require specific care. To regain beautiful dark skin, here are some effective treatments based on modern technology:
Several types of laser are used depending on the severity of the lesions to be treated, including the vascular laser (for simple red pigment spots), the fractional laser (for hollow scars) and the ablative laser (for raised scars). The latter involves burning the skin under anesthesia to renovate and smooth it.
This is an exfoliation method based on fruit acid (with or without salicylic acid) which eliminates dark spots on nubian skin (black, dark and mixed skin). Repeated frequently, the peel tightens pores and helps restore an even, radiant complexion.
Healing is done by puncturing the injured area with an electric pen fitted with micro-needles.
It consists of sanding the surface layer of the skin in order to stimulate the regeneration of the epidermis. The session is done under anesthesia (local or general) and requires non-exposure to the sun for at least two months.
To quickly fill in light scars in the form of hollows, hyaluronic acid injection is recommended. It restores a smooth and homogeneous appearance to the skin. For raised scars, a corticosteroid injection reduces the size of the scars before laser treatment.
In case of deep scars, opt for surgery, but only with the agreement of your dermatologist. A few laser sessions will allow you to refine the result later. All these solutions are given for information purposes only. Only a dermatologist can assess the severity of your scars and prescribe the appropriate treatment. Remember that you must wait for the acne to completely heal before moving on to reducing the scars. It is also recommended to follow these treatments in winter to protect yourself from the sun.
