Read here, in this article published in cooperation with FTHIS.GR, everything you need to know.

Permanent acne scars are caused when the skin’s healing process, after a spot has appeared, is insufficient. Our skin regenerates cyclically around each spot, towards the centre, and under the sebaceous duct, in order to isolate the inflammation upwards.

Unfortunately, when the spot has healed completely, we might see an unpleasant dent under it. The scars are unpredictable and we cannot predetermine which people will have acne scars and which will not. The only way that we can get rid of acne scars is by correctly treating them, as quickly as possible.

Ways of restoring the skin…

  • Microdermabrasion with crystals
  • Topical regenerating and healing cosmetics
  • Regenerative laser treatment
  • Cryotherapy
  • Ultrasonic treatment
  • Micro-current restoration
  • Photo-rejuvenation
  • Herbal peeling

What should we do?

  • Don’t pick your spots or tamper with your skin in general. You are inadvertently creating more scars.
  • When the red or brown discolouration that appears after a spot has erupted, has completely disappeared, you can take action. Products that contain AHA, BHA and retinoid, are perfect because they stimulate the production of collagen and reactivate the regeneration of the skin. However, these products should not be over used.
  • Another solution which has quite good results, is to do a chemical or, even better, a herbal peeling, which should always be conducted under the supervision of a doctor.
  • Mesotherapy, a treatment which involves filling the acne scars with hyaluronic acid, is a very effective method, but unfortunately the results are not permanent.
  • For large surface areas, laser treatment is a very good choice.
  • Finally, microdermabrasion with crystals is a very effective method which is conducted by qualified doctors and beauticians with amazing results.
  • The creams that help to regenerate the skin are those which contain collagen, elastin, vitamin A & C and fruit acids.
