How to fade and prevent scars?
Whether you’re struggling with a small amount of fine-line scars or deeper, pitted scars from acne, there are a few basics you should know before starting treatment.
The rule of thumb for treating scars is the sooner the better. While your skin is healing, it’s important to keep the wound clean. Once the skin has closed over the wound, you can start treatment to prevent scarring. Keeping the skin hydrated is essential for proper healing, but there are also a few ingredients you can rely on to help counter issues like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Treating facial scars can be particularly tricky, but the following treatments have been used to help:
- Microdermabrasion – A common treatment for acne scars, microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that essentially sands away the top layer of skin. This procedure is best performed by a dermatologist or licensed esthetician.
- Chemical Peels – This treatment takes at-home exfoliation up a notch, and they generally include stronger ingredients than what you’d use yourself. For example, alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Chemical peels may help improve the appearance of scarring by removing the outer layer of skin, revealing smoother skin beneath it.
No two people have the exact same skin type, so why shouldn’t your spa treatment be different than another persons. When I am customizing a facial for a client, I determine what the skin needs based on how the skin reacts to my touch. Sometimes, the skin can be lackluster and ruddy, but when I touch the skin, if it seems to turn red, that is telling me that the skin is dehydrated, and so I will focus on a hydrating facial. Your skin will often change between each session, so we focus on the issue at hand.
