Acne is a common problem affecting over 90% of the people of both genders and all ages. It’s not just acne, but the after-effects, the acne scars that are worrisome because they are a permanent reminder of acne from the past.

There are many clinics offering (AST) acne scar treatment in Chennai but there are two things which need to be kept in mind before you choose the best option for you:

1. AST should not be portrayed as a phobia.

2. Choose a dermatologist & clinic where they explain the cause of acne & acne scars and offer a permanent solution rather a temporary relief.

ACNE AND TYPES

The sebaceous glands in the skin, produce an oil-like substance called sebum. This sebum becomes thicker and excessive in people who have a tendency for acne. This clogs the pore and traps dead skin cells inside as well. Bacteria proliferate inside the pore to get rid of the dead skin cells. This results in a pimple, which is basically an infected mixture of dead skin cells sebum.

TYPES OF ACNE

1. Comedones – whitehead or  blackhead

2. Papules – skin or red-coloured raised lesions

3. Pustules – red-coloured lesions with pus pointing

4. Cysts – big painful boils.

PRECAUTIONS

Proper diet should be maintained as any food which is rich in sugar aggravates the sebum secretion & worsens the acne.

Drinking alcohol and smoking absorbs Vitamin C from the skin that is one of the reasons for acne formation. Excess consumption of coffee should also be avoided.

One should use non- comedogenic make-up, as oil-based make-up blocks the pores

Washing face twice a day with ph-balanced face wash.

Scheduled sleep is free medicine for the skin.

HOW IS THE ACNE TREATMENT DONE?

The Dermatologist prescribes either oral medicine or cream-based medicine to apply over the acne.

These medicines are given to

1. reduce sebum secretion.

2. prevent bacterial growth.

3. reduce inflammation. 

4. hormonal control.

HOW TO GET RID OF ACNE SCARS

Scar treatments work in a way that depends on the type of scar irrespective of when and where it is formed. Laser and Peels and Fillers are the best option available.

CAN ACNE SCARS BE TREATED?

The answer to this frequently asked question is, ‘yes’. Numerous treatments centres are available to reduce the acne scars permanently. One should follow all the mandatory procedures which the dermatologist recommends during the treatment. If this is done in the recommended manner a scar-free skin will not be a dream but a reality. Don’t stop educating and encouraging people about the myth that acne scars can never to be treated.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO TREAT ACNE SCARS?

The cost of treatment depends on the choice of treatment and numbers of the session.

WHY NOT TOPICAL CREAMS FOR ACNE SCARS?

Topical creams are not enough to treat or reduce acne scars as scaring occurs in the deep layers of the skin up to which the creams cannot penetrate.
