Acne Scars And Topical Treatment

Acne scars are normally treated surgically or physically. Can acne scars be treated with topical medicine? Let us find out.

Depressed acne scars are places on the skin that have lost collagen because of the infection. As new skin forms over the depression the scar becomes permanent. To treat the scars one has to either treat them physically or make collagen grow in the skin below the scar. That lifts the depression and scar stops looking prominent. A topical that helps collagen grow should be used for this.

Vitamin A topical applications such as tretinoin boost collagen production in the skin.

Vitamin C topical also boosts collagen production in the skin. You should consult with your doctor about Vitamin C topical brand because Vitamin C is highly unstable and must be formulated properly.

Some other formulas are available that reduce the scars. Mederma and Scarguard brands in the USA are popular amongst these formulas.

Acne & Sunshine

Despite the belief that acne gets cleared by sunshine, there is no scientific evidence to this. Excess sun can damage your skin rather than treating acne.
