As if pimples aren’t enough, they often times leave behind scars that can last a lifetime. Here’s what’s causing Acne Scars, and what you can do to get rid of the ones you already have...
What Causes Acne Scars?
When your skin is damaged from breakouts, your body begins to repair the wound. In this case, the pimple is just the beginning of the lifelong impact of acne. The real issue begins after the pimple is gone, and when your skin begins to heal. No matter the size of the pimple, big or small, as your skin heals, it can form scar tissue.
Who gets them?
While not everyone gets acne scars, a lot of people do! Even those who don’t have severe acne. Pimples are essentially wounds on our skin, and when they’re severe, our body responds by creating too much or too little tissue to replace what was damaged.
When too much tissue is produced, it forms a hypertrophic scar. Too little tissue leads to pitting of the skin, or an atrophic scar. These types of scars are very uneven in texture and can be quite hard to cover up or disguise. Unless you treat these, they will not go away on their own.
How to Get Rid of Acne Scars
Believe it or not, while scars are often seen as permanent, it IS possible to fade & reduce their appearance! By repairing the skin tissue, you can significantly reduce the apperance of acne scars.
To raise these depressions, your skin needs essential nutrients to regenerate tissue at every level.
Exactly why we formulated our Acne Scar Reducing Serum. To stimulate healthy tissue formation and skin regeneration, thus reducing the appearance of acne scars.
How to Prevent Acne Scars
One of the worst things you can do to a pimple is to pop it or pick at it. Once you do this, the pimple has a much harder time to heal as it becomes an open wound that then needs to scab before clearing up.
Picking at your skin can also lead to scarring, because you’re inflicting more trauma to the skin tissue. When you do this, your skin reacts by healing improperly.
Instead of popping your pimples and creating a bigger, longer lasting blemish that could potentially damage your skin, try applying a topical treatment designed to reduce redness, or take an Acne Clearing Supplement to stop breakouts before they happen.
For many people though, it may be too late to prevent the damage already done. If that’s the case for you, we’re confident you’ll find our Acne Scar Reducing Serum an effective method for fading & reducing the appearance of existing Acne Scars.
