Acne scars are what remains after your skin problem has left. It leaves a mark or even cavernous cut-out pores dug into your face. It's so sad. The good thing though, folks, is that there is a solution. That's right: there are various ways of attacking acne scars so that they will disappear.
One way that has become very popular over the last several years is to get laser surgery. I know what you're thinking: ain't nobody going to put lasers near my face! Well, that's a pretty dumb attitude to have since it may be your only hope of ever getting rid of your acne scars. Anyway, what would I know; I'm just the author of a site called Acne Scars Info. I couldn't possibly know anything.
Well fine if you don't like that it's your loss. You can try using creams and ointments. This is a better starting place anyway. Things like ScarAway and Scar Zone were made for exactly this type of skin care issue, so you may be in luck.
These creams will usually run you somewhere in the $20 to $100 range. That's a bit conservative considering you're going to have to buy them again and again in order to really find out if they're working. The lucky of course will get results immediately. I congratulate and pat them on the back. Hopefully you are one of these lucky few.
Now, in the future we are going to be bringing you top of the line information here on new techniques and treatments. But until then I suggest you keep on with your research. There are much better sources of information than this here old blog. It's more sort of to document what I find out as I go along than any sort of statement of what I know already about acne scarring and its treatment.
On this journey to cure acne so many wonderful doctors have found things out, but unfortunately there is still much that is not understood. For instance, did you know that what foods you eat don't effect your skin on this level? It really puts all the old myths to shame.
Really what caused the skin problems is over-active sebaceous glands. They are intimately tied to the development and excretion of hormones, incidentally. This explains why the condition has its onset in the teenage years.
In the end, everyone must go on a little journey of discovery. If you want to get rid of acne scars then you have to forget everything you think you know and start doing research from a beginner's mind. Who knows what will work for you? Of course, laser surgery has a lot of science backing it up and is fairly predictable. But everyone can't afford that.
