When you see a small red bump on your face that hurts when touched, you know you’re in for a few days of acne to deal with. It is bad enough to deal with a pimple, but to have a constant reminder of it in the form of a scar is the much worse.
We have all tried covering it up with makeup, but prevention is better than going the extra mile with your concealer. If you do end up with cicatrices d’acnées, The Laser Plus Clinic, run by Dr. Merizzi and his team of qualified beauticians provides all the best treatment possibilities and results to their clients.
Causes for Scaring – Acne scars are caused due to an inflamed lesion, like a pustule, or cyst, which occur when the pore, swells up (with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria) causing a break in the follicle wall. These infected materials penetrate and damage tissues beneath the skin it. As acne clears, your body repairs this damage by forming new collagen fibres. The type of scarring depends on how much and how less collagen your body makes.
Methods to Prevent pimples to Prevent Scarring
- Treat a Sprouted Pimple immediately – Quick treatment keeps the breakouts to a minimum and helps prevents acne from becoming more inflamed. If you cant get it under control as soon as possible, see your doctor immediately to get better acne treatment.
- Reduce Inflammation – You should always try to calm irritation and stay away from doing anything that will further irritate your skin. Acne blemishes are much more likely to occur with large, inflamed zits. Avoid harsh skincare products and aggressive scrubbing.
- Squeeze, Pop, or Pick at Pimples – Doing all these forces debris deeper into the dermis, causing the infection to spread to other tissue and worsen the inflammation. It further extends the healing time and causes blemish. If you do it anyway, clean the area with half hydrogen peroxide and half water solution.
- Picking at scabs should also be avoided – it provides the skin with a natural “bandage” and protects the wound as it heals. Picking a scab prolongs the healing process and increases the chances of scarring.
- Is your Skin Prone to Scarring – You should see a dermatologist and discuss acne treatment options if you’re more prone to scarring.
Even smaller blemishes can scar the skin, but it’s the big ones that usually damage. They extend deeper into the skin, destroy skin tissue, and leave scars. Get an appointment with a dermatologist and effective treatment can help reduce the chance of developing deep scars.
