Acne Scar Treatment Using Dermatological Procedures
You probably have some scarring or, at the very least, some scars and discoloration if you have suffered from acne. Just half of the acne epidemic is getting rid of existing and potential acne. I strongly suggest you to visit West Dermatology Rancho Mirage to learn more about this.Now you are left with the remains of your acne from the past. You are likely to have one or more of the following: post inflammatory pigmentation (skin discoloration), macules (soft, flat scars that sometimes have a bluish or violet color), keloids (bump like raised scars), ice pick scars (small, sharp scars, the skin looks like an ice pick is stabbed), depressed fibrotic scars (scars that look like big ice pic scars), boxcar scars (round pits that look like big ice pic scars) (scars that give the skin a wave-like appearance).
Dermatogical scar removal is available in many forms:
Augmentation of Soft Tissue (fillers)
Resurfacing laser skin
The Chemical Peels
The Injections of Steroids
The mechanical scraping of the top layers of the skin to enhance its texture is dermabrasion. A mechanical tool extracts the skin or “sands” The effect is that it forms a new, smoother layer of skin. The skin will be red and swollen after surgery. Swelling, redness, and discomfort begin to subside several days after treatment, and the outermost layer of skin falls off. It will take time for the skin to recover after dermabrasion therapy (approximately 10 days to 3 weeks). Dermabrasion for dark skinned individuals is not recommended. Permanent discoloration can be encountered by Asian or dark-skinned people.
