ACNE SCARRING – UNDERSTANDING AND TREATING

Acne scarring seems to be a double punishment…first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have the marks as a reminder!

Living in today’s appearance-obsessed society, imperfections are a cause for concern and embarrassment to millions, most of which are desperately searching for a remedy for their condition. If you have serious scarring from previous bouts of acne, Best Body Skin offers several successful ways to help remedy this unfortunate situation.

In the simplest terms, scars form at the site of an injury to tissue. They are the visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. In the case of Acne Scarring, the injury is caused by the body’s inflammatory response to sebum, bacteria and dead cells in the plugged sebaceous follicle. When tissue suffers an injury, the body rushes its repair kit to the injury site. Among the elements of this kit, are white blood cells and an array of inflammatory molecules, that have the ability to repair tissue and fighting infection. However, when their job is done, they may leave a somewhat messy repair site in the form of fibrous scar tissue, or eroded tissue. The occurrence and incidence of Acne Scarring is still not fully understood. There is considerable variation in scarring between one person and another, indicating that some people are more prone to scarring than others. Scarring frequently results from severe inflammatory nodulocystic acne, that occurs deep in the skin tissue, but scarring may also arise due to more superficial, inflamed lesions. The only proven method of preventing or limiting the extent of Acne Scarring is to treat acne early in its course, and for as long as is necessary. The greater the extent of inflammation is curbed, prevented or moderated, the more likely it is that scars can be prevented.

One thing you shouldn’t do to deal with acne scarring, is to burden the affected area with masks or fancy lotions, as these will most likely irritate the skin further, making the scars red and more noticeable. Seek discreet professional advice from experts, such as the highly skilled Aesthetic Specialists at Best Body Skin , who can evaluate the severity of your Scarring, and offer the best treatment regime, possibly including microdermabrasion and/chemical peeling. In conjunction with these, we offer a variety of proven and highly effective skin care products, that will augment the treatment.

Contact Best Body Skin for further information, and to arrange a consultation and evaluation, and so start your journey to clearer, smoother, more normalised and blemish-free skin. Take action as early as possible…treatment is available and your acne scarring could soon be a thing of the past.
