Acne is one of the most common types of facial medical conditions and it affects a large number of people around the world. The facial skin contains sebaceous glands which are in charge of producing sebum. Sebum is an oily substance which serves the purpose of moisturizing the skin. Sebum is released through the pores, and when the pores get clogged, acne gets developed. When the pores get clogged they provide the perfect environment for a number of different types of harmful bacteria. If a person scratches the acne, the affected tissues become damaged and can lead to the development of scars.
It is a fact, that derma roller treatment can be used for the diminishing of acne scars, and some of those products are even approved by the FDA. There are a large number of satisfied users who claim that this type of treatment works. In some cases of acne, scars occur and they may sometimes be permanent. Some scars cannot be removed but the skin texture of the affected area can be greatly improved. Medical methods are fairly expensive so they cannot be considered as an option for everyone. One of the most popular methods of acne scar removal is the process called dermabrasion. Another popular option, which is still utilized by a large number of people everywhere around the world, is the use of collagen injections. Some people still prefer using laser treatment for the removal of acne scars. Dermabrasion requires a local anesthetic while the collagen injections may be associated with various different types of allergic reactions. There are also certain home remedies which can be of great help for all those who suffer from acne scars. They are equally effective as the medicinal methods, and they are also fairly cheap. These home remedies usually contain plenty of antioxidants, herbal extracts, vitamins and essential minerals. Unfortunately, such home remedies are usually of not much help in severe cases of acne scars. One of the most commonly used home remedies for acne scars is the vitamin E oil. Another potent remedy is a mixture of tomato juice and cucumber juice. Lemon juice is also known for being of great help. Other potent herbal remedies include garlic, sandalwood powder, rosewater, egg whites and several others.
