When you were a teenager, you had a bad habit of picking at your acne. Your mom probably always told you to stop doing that, but you were so desperate to get rid of the pimples that you did not heed her advice. Because of this constant picking, you have been left with deep acne scars, and a customized treatment is sounding like a good solution.
Getting a customized acne scarring treatment is a good idea for a variety of reasons. Plenty of people have acne scars because they picked at their faces, but that is not always the case.
For example, you may have used different over-the-counter or prescription ointments and treatments to get rid of your acne. While these treatments may have removed the acne from your face, they also might have caused very dry skin or burns, which eventually led to scars. A customized treatment can help you to heal these different causes.
Your Skin Conditions
At Metro Dermatology, our acne scarring treatments can be tailored to any skin conditions that you might have. For example, let’s say that you have rosacea or eczema on your face. You will need to undergo treatments that are sensitive to the needs of your skin. Failure to do so could mean that you aggravate your condition and that you are unable to have the deep scarring removed at all.
The Extent of the Scars
People have all different types of acne scars. You might just have one or two on your chin from a problematic pimple back when you were younger. However, you may also have scars all over your face that resulted from a long and difficult journey with severe acne. You want to undergo treatment that is neither too extreme nor lenient when it comes to your acne scars.
The extent of your scars is also going to matter in preventing them from reappearing. The treatment needs to go deep enough into your skin that it fully removes the scars. For some people, that may mean a treatment that barely goes beneath the surface; for others, it can mean the opposite. Choosing a treatment plan made specifically for you helps to tackle these issues.
Deep acne scarring is a problem that may leave you constantly covering up your face with makeup each morning, only to have the scars appear again by the end of the day. Instead of combating this daily demon, choose a treatment that will go below the surface.
