Every high school has a girl the boys love to pick on and label ‘pizza face’, sadly I was that girl. This caused me a great degree of anguish growing up, but, what troubled me much more was that the scars from my acne were now with me in adulthood (and I’m not just talking about the mental ones). I knew something needed to be done to remove them, so without a second thought I went and spoke to a skin specialist.
Naive to the fact there were different treatment options available to me I followed my doctor’s advice and sought out a treatment plan known as chemical peels, a process which left me more traumatized than the acne scars. Later, after conducting greater study on the matter, I discovered a complication free natural solution. Now, not wishing my unfortunate chemical peel experience on anyone else, I hope to share my knowledge so that you too can discover the right acne scar removal solution.
THE DIFFERING TREATMENTS
Chemical peels are literally that. Acid is applied to the top layer of skin in order to burn it off the underlying layers. This burnt layer then slowly peels off the face after a week which allows for the growth of new skin to come to the surface. The process works because the thickened pigmented epidermis showing cellular disarray (acne scars) is replaced by fresh, orderly, uniform cells. A new band of dermis then forms between the epidermis and the underlying tissue, leaving the skin more elastic.
Natural topical solutions such as natural microdermabrasion creams softly remove the top layer of undesired scar tissue through the use of micro-crystals. This process skims away the top layer of effected skin just like chemical peels, however it is a much more subtle process. The regeneration of new skin cells are then accelerated by natural compounds such as Helix Aspersa Muller GlycoConjugates, which replace scar collagen with a mixture of skin cells and invisible collagen fibers, bringing elasticity and vitality back to the skin.
THE LENGTH OF TREATMENT
Chemical Peel treatments are a long and complex process. In the beginning the skin must be pre-treated with the application of prescribed creams that both soften and anesthetize the skin. The person being treated must then undertake a series of acid burning sessions, which for me lasted a few weeks. Finally, the skin must go through a healing process that includes the application of further prescribed creams to provide both recovery and ongoing maintenance to the recently medicated area, a process which I followed for approximately three months.
The application of natural cream solutions are not as complex. The procedure is as simple as applying the creams in the comfort of one’s bathroom after a shower, something which I found to be much more appealing.
THE RISKS INVOLVED
All forms of chemical treatment carry a degree of risks, chemical peels are no different. These side effects can vary depending on the patient and generally, the deeper the chemical peel, the more prominent the risk of adverse reactions. The following is a list of adverse reactions both myself and people I know have experienced:
As one might have thought acne scars cream carries no such danger. As the ingredients comprise of only natural substances they work harmoniously with the body’s skin cells and present no risk of side effects or nasty irritation.
Using my experience as an example, when deciding upon the best acne scar removal available it is easy to see that natural solutions are easier to apply, safer, and yet produce the same results. In light of this one should look towards a topical solution such as Bioskinexfol for their treatment for acne scar. This 100% natural product contains Helix Aspersa Muller GlycoConjugates and also acts as a natural microdermabrasion, thereby establishing itself as the best solution for acne scars treatment.
