Acne brings that feeling of embarrassment and low self esteem within a
person irrespective of their age groups. Although the acne may leave
small marks but still that much is enough to invoke a feeling of self
consciousness when a person steps out. Even if others wont talk about
the acne on your face but still you need to get rid of acne for
professional reasons and to enhance the physical appearance. To get
rid of the acne from face one should turn to popular acne treatments.
1. Acne removal creams: Most of the people rely on creams to get rid
of those acne marks that pop up on the face. All the cosmetic
companies sell the acne removal creams with the promise that applying
them once, twice or thrice a day will bring the results. But before
trying on any acne removal creams it will be better to judge your skin
type. Mostly these Acne removal creams give good effects depending on
ones skin type and body type. Don't stick to one cream only if it is
incapable of bringing the desired effect on your skin instead try
different creams which suits your skin and which you feel can bring
the good effects. If you feel the acne removal creams are not bringing
any desired effects then search for other methods of treatment.
2. Acne removal lotions: People may find some interesting acne
removal lotions on shelf which are expensive. Although all the
cosmetic companies produce such lotions but the method of application
may be different. Some lotions are to be sprayed on the skin then they
are to be scrubbed off using some some cloth or rinsed off. These
lotions are very expensive ones. So before investing on such acne
removal lotions think of the expenses and the outcomes because most of
the times it is found that such treatments are not that effective.
3. Acne shots:Other than this acne removal creams and lotions some
people also rely on acne shots. These shots generally dry out the skin
around the scars where they are injected. But this is not free from
side effects as the acne may disappear but it will leave the dry skin
around. Acne will disappear almost immediately, but not before
peeling off the skin in your entire body. As long as you don't apply
the moisturizer all over skin regularly there are chances of skin
being peeled .
4. Blue light acne treatment - It has been found that more acne
affected people are now relying on Blue light acne treatment is a
breakthrough . Blue light acne treatment may be alternative to those
patients who have lost hopes of erasing the acne scars after trying
many other traditional therapies. The process is explained as below "
Blue Light gets at the core of what causes acne eruptions: P. acne,
the bacterial responsible for causing acne inflammation, pumps out
tiny molecules called porphyrins.
When those porphyrin are exposed to certain wavelengths of light,
they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria. Without P. acne
around to cause inflammation, acne clears up". It has been found that
skin heals up fast when exposed to red light so the effective acne
treatment is the combination of blue and red lights. The advantage of
this Blue light acne treatment is that it is 100% natural and non-
invasive. It is drug free with no adverse effects.
5. Acne laser skin treatment: Many people also go for laser
treatments. There are many types of Acne Laser skin treatments-
Non ablative Lasers: This type of acne laser treatment can reduce the
wrinkles and tighten the underlying skin.
Carbon dioxide lasers: They can shot bursts of energy to skin which
will remove the damaged tissues layer by layer.
Erbium laser treatment: This acne laser treatment is used by the
people with shallow to moderate rashes on skin.
Although more and more people are nowadays preferring to laser
treatments for erasing the acne scars but even such treatments are not
free from their share of side effects. Skin discoloration, skin
crusting and swelling of the affected areas are some of the side
effects observed in this area.
Hopefully you may be attracted to one of this treatments but simply
choosing a mode of treatment is not the important thing but choosing
the mode of treatment to which you can make the commitment is more
important thing. Treatments only work when one can stick to them or
commit to them. Pros and cons of every treatment should be analysed
with caution before committing towards it.
