Acne Scar Removal

Even if acne is not medically classified as a chronic condition, the tissue scarring that it causes is most often permanent.

When the skin damage level is too high and the cells are compromised on extended areas, various dermatological procedures can be tried for a safe and complete acne scar removal. There are several criteria that make a specialist recommend one type of procedure or another: the patient's medical history, the scar type, the severity of the problem, possible medication sensitivity and the preference for a certain treatment over another.

There are several kinds of acne scars known as ice picks, craters, or pits. The acne scar removal may therefore include procedures with temporary or permanent results. Sometimes For the healing of the acne-affected areas several interventions may be necessary. Fat transfer, collagen injections, chemical peeling, laser surgery, dermabrasion and punch grafts are but a few from the list of the interventions used for acne scar removal.

From the money perspective, laser therapy is by far the most expensive, since the more complex the procedure, the higher the price. Add several sessions for achieving permanent results, and you'll have paid a small fortune. It is a good idea to check the health insurance policy and see whether part of the intervention costs are covered by the insurance company or no. Most of the time people break their bank account for this kind of interventions, which is why the average user can seldom relish it.

Regardless of the type of procedure, acne scar removal is a process that takes a lot of time and patience. In most cases, there are side effects following the interventions with the skin getting red and painful. This inconvenience is common to almost all the surgical treatments since they all share a basic element: the natural tissue generation, which can only be triggered by the infliction of small wounds.

Moreover, the efficiency of the acne scar removal treatment depends on a range of subjective factors related to the individual specificity of each person. The recovery interval after the intervention also depends on the individual healing speed that differs from one body to another, some people will have new tissues sooner while the process may take longer for others. And last but not least, while in some cases two or three surgical interventions may be necessary, in others one could be enough.
