Acne scarring

I am desperately looking for a doctor/plastic surgeon that performs the deep version of this treatment. Also possibly any spas that offer the treatment NJ/PA/NY.





Had a TCA peel many years ago. It helped tremendously however I have sustained more scarring since. I can do the treatments @ home, but I would love to get a jump start with a doctor first. Thank you

Danielle


Hello Danielle,

Thanks for your email. Before you attempt to reduce scaring make sure you have your acne under control - otherwise you'll have to do the procedure again.

Here are a few in N.Y that deal with acne scars and laser resurfacing - but please make sure you research them well, as I don't know them personally.

Acne Prone Sensitive Skin

Hi,

I need some advice for acne prone sensitive skin treatment. My skin breakouts easily and can barely tolerate most skin products that are made for acne. I don't know what to use! I'm 45 years old and thought I'd be done with acne by now.

Thanks


Hi,

Thanks for your email regarding sensitive acne prone skin.

Acne is a tough skin condition to deal with because so many products can irritate already sensitive skin. The trick is to keep the pores clean, the oil production regulated, and reduce a bacteria commonly found on the skin is called propionibacterium acnes.

This bacteria uses your skin sebum (oil) to nourish and multiply itself, it increases along with sebum production. The bacteria then attract more white blood cells to the hair follicles.

The white blood cells then produce an enzyme that begins to break down the walls of the follicles, whose contents then infiltrate the skin, which produces inflammation known as comedogenesis in the form of papules, pustules and nodules, aka acne.

There is a natural remedy you can try, but since everyone is different, you should try this out on a small area of your skin to make sure it won't further irritate it - as can happen for some acne sufferers:

Try steaming your face over a hot bowl of water, with a towel covering your head. Or take a sauna or hot shower.

Then once the pores are opened and the oil plugs are soft try to exfoliate gently using a mixture of baking soda and sugar. Mix the two together into a paste and massage lightly over the affected area. Be sure to rinse well.

Then apply a gentle, oil free moisturizer especially formulated for acne prone skin.

Also, you might want to consider using applying an AHA/BHA serum to help reduce large pores, removing flaky skin, prevent whiteheads and blackheads, and reduce red spots from previous breakouts. I'd recommend a pH balanced one so it's gentle and won't over dry the skin.

There is a page dedicated to treating adult acne and lists a few great product suggestions - from a gentle wash to an organic moisturizer. It's a really simple 3 step system that has worked very well for many women.

One of the reasons why I like this system is that it won't irritate your skin and cause a rebound effect. Have you experienced this before?

A rebound effect is when you use a product (that's a bit harsh) but works quickly and very well.....for about 2 weeks. Then your pimples, breakouts and whiteheads come back again.

You can learn more about it here:
acne rebounding.

I hope this helps,
Linda

Acne Scar Removal

by Sally

Please may I ask your suggestions for acne scar removal?

Hi Sally,

Thank you for your email question regarding acne scar removal.

While removing scars completely is difficult,there are a few things you can do to reduce the appearance and thickness of acne and surgical scars.

The first and easiest method is to exfoliate using two different methods for best results and to reduce skin spots left over from previous acne breakouts. These two methods are great for anyone with dull skin, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation (freckles, brown spots)

1. Exfoliate with a good granular dermabrasion scrub to help remove the top dead skin layers...clearing the pores and exposing fresh new skin underneath. This also helps to slowly reduce the appearance, size, and thickness of scars - making them thinner and less visible over time.

A side benefit to dermabrasion scrubs is the reduction in appearance of lines and wrinkles. And the stimulation of fresh collagen production. A dermabrasion scrub is something that all skin types - whether you have scars or not - can benefit from. I'm a huge fan of scrubs and once you start, your skin will feel so smooth and clean, you'll be hooked!!

2. Erase - a skin eraser is similar to the exfoliator in that it helps to dissolve the upper layers of dead skin cells. But the skin eraser is a liquid/serum that is usually made from natural fruit acids. So they also help to lighten hyper-pigmentation (like red and brown spots often left over from acne) and just basic aging spots or other skin discoloration like from hormone imbalances or sun damage.

A great side benefit to the skin erase is also a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. I'm also a big fan of this type of exfoliation too....especially for aging skin.

The combination of the granule dermabrasion scrub along with the fruit acid skin eraser will promote a smoother (less bumps and ropey scars) complexion, a more uniform/brighter skin tone color, and smaller/cleaner pores. This is what makes great skin look great.

I would (and use myself) recommend these two steps for all skin types - especially aging skin because that is when all those years of sun abuse starts to show - along with wrinkles.

And, the older we get the less efficient our body is at shedding dead skin cells - which why older skin tends dull. So we need to manually stimulate the process of shedding dead skin cells.

I hope this information has helped. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Acne Skin Care Routine

by Chris

I need help on how to heal acne. Can you give me a good acne skin care routine?

Hi Chris,

Yes, I can give you a simple 3 step routine for acne skin care and healing. First, is to unclog the pores with salicylic acid.

According to Dr. Tess Mauricio from the The Doctors Show ..salicylic acid is one of the most important treatments for acne prone skin. It helps to clean and exfoliate the skin deep down. This helps prevent skin eruptive infections and breakouts.

Next, you need to clean your skin daily without over drying it - which will only aggravate already irritated skin. A good herbal wash that's pH balanced is best.

Lastly, consider treating your acne from the inside out with an herbal supplement that helps detoxify the endocrine system. This is one step that many people forget about and is why many people don't get the results they're looking for.

You can get all 3 treatments in one product. Click here to more about this Natural Acne Cure.

I have had hundreds of people tell me that they've gotten great results with this treatment....so don't forget the herbal supplements!

I hope this helped.

Acne scar healing

by Abeel



I have left over acne marks or scars around my eyes, chin, and neck. How can I remove them?

Hello Abeel,

Thanks for your questions regarding acne marks and scars. There are a few ways to remove acne scars and discoloration. Laser or chemical peels work great for most people as can microdermabrasion.

If the scars are not too deep, you can also consider a more inexpensive approach by using a good dermabrasion cream and a skin lightening lotion. The cream will remove dead skin cells and smooth out your complexion, while the skin eraser will lighten red spots, blotches, freckles and help even out skin tone.

Visit this page Acne Scar Skin Care - Natural Chemical Peel for Acne Scars for more information.

Adult Acne Cyst Treatment

by Gregg

Hi,

I need some advice on adult acne cyst treatment. Every ting I've tried before irritates my skin and makes my wrinkles look worse. Can you believe I'm in my 40's and still have acne? Please advise.
Thanks



Hi Gregg,

Thanks for your email regarding adult acne cyst treatment.

Boy, acne and wrinkles.....that is tough to treat!

The main problem with treating acne for mature skin is that too many acne treatment products dry out, damage, and age the skin.

The best acne treatment product should always contain natural organic, botanical healing herbs. And it must contain enough of the active ingredients to actually work. Many of them don't!

The benefit of using botanical and herbal ingredients is that they can quickly heal the acne while soothing and protecting the skin.

I feel that the use of supplements to heal the skin and body is very important. Often times acne and other skin problems - start inside the body due to hormonal imbalances or an improper elimination process of toxins.

I found an herbal remedy for acne that contains all of my criteria to heal and sooth the skin from the outside, while detoxifying and regulating hormonal imbalance from within.

The supplement is excellent for anyone to take regardless of acne problems. We live in a very toxic world and can sure use Chinese herbs like Milk Thistle to help the liver process and eliminate daily toxins found in our food and water.

I hope I was able to help.

Thanks,
Linda

How To Fade Scars Naturally and Stop Scar Formation HELP!!!

Hello, I have a problem that no skin doctor has been able to help me with. I have a rare condition that doctors can't put a name to. Ever since I was a teenager I have had scars appear on my back now they're on my shoulders and spreading to my arms. They are just scars that appear all of the sudden.

Doctors think they are scars from acne but although I did have some back acne I didn't have much and definitely not enough for the scars I have. Doctors have cut samples out and all the conclusions are all the same. It is just scar tissue. This is very embarrassing for me. Please help me. I just want these scars to stop appearing.


Hello,

Thanks for your question. Wow, what an unusual problem. I'm so sorry your doctors were not able to help you. Perhaps I can at least try to provide some information.......

Scars are your body’s repair mechanism. Something is causing damage to your skin(could be a cut or even a bug bite) – which is causing your body to heal and thus a scar is formed.

Some people (genetically) tend to form scars more easily than others….which sounds like your case.
Some people are so sensitive, they can form scars from bug bites!!

Could it be that you’re getting bit by mosquitoes or fleas and as result when these bites heal you form a scar?

I sit outside a lot during the summer and get bit and don’t even realize it until the next day when I’m itching and see red dots on my back, legs or arms….Could that be one explanation for you?

Are you outside a lot, do you work outdoors, do you camp a lot, fish??? Do you notice more scar formation during the summer?

Ok, so what can you do to reduce scar formation? Some doctors say that scar formation is considered a lack of improper collagen formation. So you may wish to take steps to increase and support collagen formation.

Some suggest taking more vitamin C to promote better collagen production – this can help speed up the creation of new skin cells and the shedding of old ones.

Make sure you take a vitamin C supplement that has bioflavonoids in it. It should say so on the bottle.

Also, if you see a cut or bug bite on your body, massage some vitamin E oil on it before it heals and turns into a scar. Try to protect your arms from bits and cuts - by wearing protective clothing and bug spray when outside.

Also, consider taking BioSil. It’s a collagen producing supplement.

Actually, it provides the necessary amino acid called (hydroxyproline) which the body MUST have in order to produce collagen.

This nutrient will also help strengthen and support healthy strong nails, hair, connective tissues, joints.

It’s an awesome supplement that offers so many heath benefits from skin to cardiovascular system (because it supports strong capillaries).

You can read more about it here : BioSil

Please keep in mind that BioSil, vitamin C and bioflavonoids will take some time before you see results…the skin is the largest organ and before you can visually see the difference – changes are happening beneath the surface.

One thing you will notice quickly is that your hair and nails will start to grow faster than usual. This is from the BioSil and it’s a sign that it’s working.

Good luck to you – I really hope I was able to help you.

ACNE SCARS

by dr deepa
(bangalore, karnataka, india)

I am having depressed fibriotic scar please recommend treatment

------------------

Hello,

Depressed fibrotic scars are sometimes large. These scars look like depressed valleys on the surface of the skin. They are usually jagged and sometimes start out as ice-pick scars.

There are several methods for scar removal but most are expensive and require healing/downtime. There is no complete cure for acne scars, but you can try to minimize their appearance, smooth out the skin, and help reduce some of the redness that often accompanies them.
