How to Treat Acne Scarring

What causes acne scarring and what is the best method to treat severe acne, as well as nodular cysts?

Inflammation is a result of infection caused by a bacterium called Propionobacterium acnes (P-acne) that live on the surface of the skin and flourish within the blocked follicle. The result is the redness and swelling of the lesion. In chronic and more severe cases, the inflammation within a follicle can tear, causing damage to the surrounding skin which triggers the inflammatory response, resulting in potential deep scarring if left untreated.

Early treatment is the best way to prevent acne scars. If you have already developed acne scarring you will probably need to undergo medical skin treatments such as microdermabrasion (a process by which your skin is abraded), or laser treatments which are very aggressive, so do your research before you opt for laser rejuvenation treatments. In cases of individuals with severe acne you may need to go on medications prescribed by a dermatologist. Popular medications such as Accutane may be prescribed to you. Accutane is usually a 6 months therapeutic treatment and we suggest that you look up the side effects as they can be severe. [These side effects may include: depression, loss of appetite, delayed cognition, dryness, itching, muscle aches and liver dysfunction]. PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE BLOOD WORK TAKEN to test the liver function if your doctor prescribes Accutane to you.

Retin-A cream and antibiotics may be prescribed as well to treat moderate to severe acne.
