Complexion imperfection is a phenomenon that plagues millions, in many different ways. Pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads can all be both troublesome and annoying in the present, but they are even worse for the marks that they leave permanently. Let’s take a look at what causes acne scarring, and how we can ultimately diminish the appearance of acne scars over time, for more perfect complexions in the future.

What Causes Acne Scarring?

Acne scars are primarily the result of skin inflammation caused by acne itself. A scar is created when a wound tries to heal itself too many times, resulting in a buildup of dense collagen in one spot. Acne scars can appear as depressions in the skin, known as icepick scars, or bumps in the skin, known as hypertrophic scars.

The Treatments

Dermabrasion is a treatment in which the surface of the skin is removed by an abrasive sanding procedure, which ultimately causes the skin to regrow, regenerate, and heal. Dermabrasion can not only be rather costly, but also rather painful, as skin is left raw for a period of time afterwards. If one is willing to shoulder both the cost and the pain then dermabrasion can be an effective treatment in the removal of all raised scars.

The Best Products

When seeking to minimize the appearance of raised acne scars, exfoliants and peels are ultimately the best way to go. The trick is to remove the top layers of damaged skin, revealing newer, healthier skin underneath. Physical exfoliants tend to run on the more affordable side (many are under $10), while a more advanced chemical peel could run upwards of $100. Always go with milder products, especially if you are new to the exfoliation process, since you don’t want to take off too much. Overdoing it can certainly do more harm than good, as you could end up with raw, scratched, and potentially even further-damaged skin.

When in Doubt, Primer and Concealer Are Your Best Friends

It’s worth mentioning that while many acne scars can be made to look less severe, or lessened in appearance, they can’t always truly be removed—especially skin depressions. For that reason, cosmetics can be your greatest ally in lessening the appearance of scars. Concealer and foundation are both wonderful tools for hiding discoloration that can be left behind as a result of acne, while the typical silicone-based primer can not only temporarily fill in minor indentations, but also add a light-reflecting property to the skin that ultimately blurs the appearance of said imperfections. Many finishing powders also have the ability to reflect light in such a way as to mask imperfections as well.

Decrease the appearance of your acne scars and gain complexion perfection with these tried and true tips.
