Acne is a problem that everyone deals with. We’re all familiar with that feeling of relief that comes when a breakout finally clears. But for many, there is also a feeling a dread, as you wonder whether or not your acne has left a permanent mark.
The scars and dark spots acne sometimes leaves in its wake are frustrating and discouraging. But with X-SCAR Original and X-SCAR HQ scar gel treatments, the solution can be simple.
Getting Rid of Acne Scars
When a breakout occurs in the skin at a level deep enough to damage tissue, it can leave unsightly facial scars. Acne scars can also happen when someone is plagued with inflammatory acne, picks at their acne, or is more genetically susceptible to scarring. But if your acne does scar, it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. The right products and care routine can prevent a breakout from leaving a lifelong mark.
How to Take Care of Acne Scars
When acne scars, it may form either depressions in the skin or raise it. The key to preventing this is to help your body produce the right amount of collagen to rebuild your skin cells. Too little collagen will leave you with a depressed acne scar, while excessive collagen production will form a raised scar. By creating the ideal environment for balanced collagen and growth factors in the skin after acne has scarred, you can facilitate smooth healing.
What is the best treatment for acne scarring? Like with any type of scar, the most effective treatment is with a silicone-based product. X-SCAR Original scar gel harnesses the natural healing properties of silicone and combines them with antioxidants and vitamins that promote rejuvenation of the skin. When you coat your acne-scarred skin in our gel, it serves as a protective layer that:
- Guards against bacteria and contaminants
- Traps moisture to keep your skin soft and hydrated
- Reduces inflammation and discomfort
- Normalizes collagen synthesis for optimal healing
