Do you have acne scars and currently looking to get rid of them? These are common problems for people with different types of acne. At Bellphoria, we have the best acne scar treatment to improve your overall beauty and achieve healthy-looking skin! Today, we will provide tips on preventing new acne scars from forming and how to get rid of acne scars.

What Are Acne Scars?

Acne scars are areas of raised or pitted skin. They are the result of damage to the skin due to acne. When developing acne, your body repairs your skin by forming collagen fibers. If your body produces low collagen, scars can occur, but if your body has too much, then raised acne or keloid scars can appear. 

Our team of dermatologists separates acne scars into four types.

Types Of Acne Scars

  1. Rolling scars. These are wide depressions with rounded edges and give a wave-like appearance.
  2. Boxcar. This type looks like U-shaped scars with sharp edges that can be shallow or deep. The more external they are, the better they answer to skin treatments such as Microdermabrasion which is great for almost all skin types.
  3. Ice pick scars. They look like V-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin. They can look like oval holes or small rounds. This type of acne scar is the most difficult to treat because of its deep reach under the skin’s surface.
  4. Raised or keloid scars. These scars are most common on the chest and back, caused by too much collagen production during healing. If you have keloid scars, it is important to visit our dermatologists so we can help you determine the best treatment that suits your needs and also make sure that those marks on your skin are really scars and not other skin conditions.

How Can I Prevent Acne

  1. Do not pop your pimples. Popping a spot may be tempting for you, but this does more harm than good. When you do it, you release bacteria and all the oil out of the pimple on your skin, leaving an open wound, creating more acne, and leading to scars.
  2. Use salicylic acid. If applied topically, salicylic acid reduces swelling, clears pores, and exfoliates the skin. It is one of the best treatments for acne scars. You can add it to your daily skincare routine! It is important to say that it might take some weeks to notice the effect.
  3. Wear sunscreen. Sunscreen isn’t just for fun in the sun! Solar damage can darken spots and scars from acne, so we recommend applying sunscreen daily.
  4. Moisturize your skin. Keeping your skin moisturized can help you to achieve youthful and radiant skin! It helps existing acne scars look less noticeable by uniting your skin texture and tone.
