Creams And Topical Treatments

When these creams are absorbed by the cells in the skin this can reduce redness as well as inflammation. Many of these products can be purchased over the counter but there are some stronger products that can be prescribed by a doctor. Kojic acid, arbutin, hydroquinone and vitamin C are all popular ingredients that can be utilized in fading and treatment creams.


Laser Treatments

A popular facial treatment in Singapore is a laser treatment. Beneficial for people who have not found results with topical remedies, laser treatments can help with resurfacing the skin and promote formation of new collagen. Collage is the main building block of the skin and when new collagen is produced, this can fill in scars caused by acne.

Injections can fill in gaps behind deep acne scars and make the skin look less damaged and scarred. This treatment needs to be repeated frequently as the product is eventually absorbed into the skin, approximately every six months or so.

Patience is the key when it comes to dealing with pimple scars. It can take a few weeks or even months to clear up a breakout and tend to scars that are forming. However, with the right treatment plan your face can look beautiful and clear in no time at all. Moving forward, it is important to think about using a good quality skin care product line to keep skin looking healthy. Preventing scars in the future is much easier than having to deal with fading the scars.
