Acne breakouts are so annoying! But even worse are the dark scars that they magically leave behind. Can it get worse? Maybe, but if you follow these easy instructions, you could easily heal and prevent more from happening.
How To Treat Acne Scars?
The discoloration will fade over time, but I’ll bet you want them gone quicker than that. Below are a few quick tips to help you out.
1) Don’t, For Any Reason Ignore Sunscreen:
One of the most important things to remember in getting treatments for acne is sunscreen. Always apply sunscreen simply because sun exposure can make the spots look worse. Also, the darker your skin, the worse the spots will be. Remember the greater the SPF the better. Shoot for at least a 30.
2) Don’t Even Think About Popping Pimples:
I know this one is going to be hard, but avoid popping pimples and you may avoid scarring. Popping a pimple not only leads to more skin irritation, but it actually causes bacteria to creep deeper in the pore, which is what you are trying to prevent.
Be sure to get the treatment that best suits you. There are many treatments available, from over the counter creams, to treatments that can only be given by a doctor. Once you get rid of your acne, brown spot and scarring can easily be treated and tailored to you.
4) Still Not Getting Any Better?
It’s time to make an appointment. Schedule an appointment with a board certified dermatology to make SURE you are getting that special attention your spots deserve.
Visit a Dermatologist:
Remember, it’s not just you, almost everybody at some time or another deals with acne and/or acne scars; but remember, with the right dermatologist, these can be a thing of the past. Only you and your dermatologist can decide which treatment is right for you, so make an appointment today.
