Tips to Heal Acne Scarring February 16 2021

Acne scars are something we all deal with at some point. Here are some easy tips to help heal or prevent acne scarring:

Avoid picking: Stop scarring before it starts by avoiding unnecessary picking. Picking creates trauma in the skin and can cause permanent scarring and skin damage. Instead use a combination of ice and CSA spot treatment to lower inflammation and reduce the pain.

Exfoliation: Exfoliation helps to reduce scarring and pigmentation by improving the skin’s absorption and hydration levels. Use a manual or enzymatic exfoliator once a week to ensure absorption and help prevent clogged pores, resulting in fewer breakouts.

Ice: Ice helps to calm, cool and diffuse inflammation. This is great, especially if you feel like picking.

Antioxidant protection: Make sure your skincare is full of protective nutrients like vitamin C. These antioxidants help to support skin health and protect your skin from damage.

Facial Acupuncture: Acupuncture has been shown to support skin health, hormone balance and collagen production. This treatment is designed to help improve the tone and texture of the skin. Facial acupuncture can help improve hydration levels and help with scarring and pigmentation.
