Acne is a skin condition that broadly leaves the skin scarred. Acne scars can have an adverse outcome on one s face and many of these scars are very difficult to remove. However, particular methods are usable to get rid of acne scars and enhance the appearance of the face.

There are many types of effective acne treatment creams usable in the market for getting rid of acne scars.These creams provide a relatively simple and capable way for acne scar removal. In addition, many of these products could be bought over the counter at any local supermarket or pharmacy, although some products which are relatively stronger require medical prescriptions. These creams usually attack the root cause of the acne scars such as excessive oiliness, blocked pores and bacterial infections. However, particular brands of cream require cleansing and exfoliating products to clean the skin before the application of the actual cream.

Before using any scar cream to get rid of acne scars, one should always consult a dermatologist. As the skin differs from person to person, it is necessary to apply the correct type of cream to one s skin. Although acne scar creams provide a simple way to get rid of acne scars, they often start particular side effects in the body such as, skin peeling, dry skin, skin irritation and redness.

Another method to get rid of acne scars is laser treatment. In such procedure, the help of a laser beam is applied for stimulate the collagen production of the skin, which will eventually reduce the scar visibility. There are several versions in this treatment which include non ablative (without removing tissue), ablative (removing layers of the skin) and micro-ablative (microscopically removing tissue). Special types of lasers are applied for this treatment and broadly, a physician determines the required intensity and wavelength of the laser depending on the existing scar tissue. This laser scar treatment procedure takes less time and results can be seen in a relatively short time.

However, this treatment procedure, especially the ablative method leaves the unprotected skin exposed and the skin wound care should be applied to shield the skin. The skin also contains a risk of infection after the operation and hence, it should be checked regularly. When this method is applied for removing scars, it usually carries a heavy price tag. Ordinarily, the approximate costs of laser acne scar treatment ranges from $300 to $5,000.

There exist particular methods to get rid of acne scars and the consumer is at liberty to choose. However, each one of them carries its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
