Although it’s not possible to get rid of your acne scars quickly, it’s never too late to treat them.
To decrease the likelihood of acne flare-ups, teens may have to wait until their early twenties to begin treatment.
While there’s no real way to get rid of acne scars naturally and at home, there are a few things you can do to reduce your risk of getting acne scars:
- Quit smoking or don’t start smoking.
- Keep your hands off of your face. Resist the urge to pick or squeeze your pimples.
- Treat your acne as soon as possible to reduce the chance of scars.
Scarring can happen at any age, no matter if you’re a teenager and your hormones are changing or you’re an adult. Sometimes when adults lose weight or lose elasticity in their skin as they age, scarring from years past becomes more evident.
Subcision, a procedure that releases a scar from the muscle or deeper tissues, may be helpful before lasers or peels. Both of these techniques are used with deeper scars to bring them to the surface to enhance their response to the laser, chemical peel, or micro-needling.
