In order to achieve results, it is important to adopt a strategy that combines effective acne management with scar reduction techniques. This concise guide will provide you with some strategies to help you on your journey towards reducing the visibility of acne scars.
Wondering what causes acne and its scars? Primarily clogged pores and inflammation are the culprits behind acne breakouts. As for the scars, they occur due to skin damage during the healing process of acne.
What are the treatments for combating acne?
There are creams, antibiotics, and prescription medications like isotretinoin for severe cases. However, it’s crucial that these treatments be prescribed by a doctor.
You might also wonder if maintaining a diet can contribute to clearing up acne and its accompanying scars. Diet certainly plays a role in skin health and ensuring a diet rich in fruits and vegetables alongside proper hydration is beneficial. Although a good diet cannot completely eliminate acne by itself, incorporating it into a skincare routine can be beneficial.
If your goal is to get rid of those scars as quickly as possible there are various professionally done options worth considering. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser therapy, or dermal fillers have shown effectiveness in reducing acne scar visibility.
At Epione, Dr. Simon Ourian prefers using a combination of the Coolaser treatment alongside Neustem filler injections to patients who are candidates of both procedures. To determine the option for your situation, consulting with a trained professional is highly recommended.
How much do treatments for acne scars cost?
Treatment cost varies depending on the type of treatment and its level of complexity. To obtain an estimate based on your requirements it is advisable to seek advice from a professional. As of the time of writing, the national average cost of Coolaser is $3900-$5900 per area, depending on the size of the area being treated.
