Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Acne is caused by various factors such as excess oil gland production, hair pore blockage (covered in dust or dead skin cells), bacteria and hormonal factors. Severe pimples or pimples filled with pus / pus or large cystic pimples (cysts) generally destroy skin tissue that can not be replaced by new skin tissue during the healing process so that it can cause indentation, sores, or scars that are darker in color due to the pigmentation process the excess.
It is recommended not to squeeze / peel off pimples or acne scars, because it can cause inflammation / recurring inflammation that triggers excessive pigmentation in the acne scars area, causing blackened scars. Recurrent acne scars are not only in the form of black marks, but can also be in the form of atropic wounds due to collagen degradation during the healing process (occurs when the healing process is exfoliated repeatedly) in the form of holes / parts of the skin that go deeper / uneven.
Heal acne scar itself depends on the type, if there is redness in acne scars, the choice of treatment is vascular laser. However, if the acne scars are atrophic scars, the choice of treatment is different. Atropic wounds are divided into 3 types: rolling (scar tissue below the surface of the skin so that the surface of the skin is uneven), ice pick (scar tissue such as needle puncture) and boxcar (oblong-shaped scar tissue / like a crater). Therapeutic options for atropic wounds include laser therapy, subsidies (separating healthy tissue and scar tissue), punch techniques (punch elevation: removing the base of scar tissue; punch excision: removing acne scars and closing them; punch grafting: scars patched by patching the skin from the skin other parts), as well as skin fillers. If the acne scars are darker scars from the skin around the treatment options include dermabrasion (mengangkaat the outer layer of the skin with a laser or a special brush) or laser therapy
All of the above therapies are the competence of skin and genital specialists, therefore it is advisable to consult a dermatologist and direct skin doctor or visit a doctor and skin specialist for further evaluation and treatment.
Things that can be done at home temporarily before consultation are do not peel off acne scars, wash your face a maximum of 2 times a day or more if you feel a dirty face with cleansers specifically for acne prone skin such as those containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, do not rub the face with cloth or towel (gently clean, like tapping with tissue or just by hand), using non-comedogenic sunscreen with a minimum of 30SPF (repeat every 2-3 hours), using facial moisturizers, avoiding using comedogenic ingredients or makeup, and strive for a healthy lifestyle such as sleeping 7-8 hours a day, multiply antioxidant-rich foods such as brightly colored vegetables and fruits, meet daily fluid needs, avoid cigarettes and alcohol, and avoid foods / drinks that contain excess sugar and fat.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
