Acne Scars Treatment- Do Home Remedies Work?

Acne scars are a nuisance. They are permanent and with age they become more prominent. Can any home remedy treat them? Let us find out.

Acne Scar- What Is It?

Most of the acne scars are depressed types. When acne develops, it infects the cells deeper in the skin. It is mainly collagen, which is destroyed by acne inflammation. As acne heals, a new skin forms over the depression and the scar becomes permanent.

Depressed scars may be of different types. This classification is done on the basis of how they look. The common types of depressed acne scars are Icepick scars, Boxcar scars, and Rolling scars. Some people developed raised scars known as keloids. These are different than depressed scars.

Depressed Acne Scars And Home Remedy-

Acne scars are permanent changes in the skin. Many home remedies are recommended to treat scars. How will a home remedy remove the depression in the skin? The only method is to produce more collagen inside the skin below the scar. If any product can help produce collagen at the scar site, that collagen will fill the depression. If you are trying any home remedy, find out if that will help create more collagen.

Raised Scars and Home Remedy-

  • Keloids are raised scars are composed of a mass of tissues that grow on the site of the injury.
  • Do not try to treat keloids at home, because treating them at home may produce more keloids.
