Skin Treatment: Get Rid of Scars From Burns, Acne, or Surgery

Thursday, 02 January 2014 01:03 AM EST

Scars are the unwanted marks left on the skin after a burn, acne, or surgery. They are a mark of the natural healing of any wound. No one likes distracting spots or signs on the skin. Effective skin treatment including natural as well as surgical or laser treatments can largely treat these marks. Among the best treatments, laser and radiation can get rid of scars caused by acne, burns, or surgery. This article should assist you in identifying sensible skin treatment options for scars.

Having positivity is not enough unless one can look positive and assured. Here, skin treatment methods like injections, medications, and surgery play a crucial role. Based on the origin or reasons for scarring, there are three main types of scars — those caused due to burns, due to acne, or due to surgery.
The imperfect healing of acne or lesions causes acne scars. Nonpitted or simple acne scars cause discoloration. The skin can be treated through using a green concealer over the affected portion along with a foundation cream to counterbalance the mark. This can make the skin look clear with the scars matching the skin tone. Pitted acne scars are caused mainly by severe acne and chicken pox. These can be treated by laser resurfacing, where either CO2 laser or fractional laser is used as an advanced skin treatment.
Regularly applying home remedies or lotions and oils to help reduce discoloration can lighten scars caused by minor burns. If the burns are deeper, a visit to a dermatologist is advisable for laser or surgical treatment options. Applying sunscreen lotions during summers will largely prevent sunburns, the most common form of burns that leave angry marks and are quite painful as well.

Scars of surgery are disturbing. Corticosteroid injections, laser therapy or laser resurfacing (using CO2 laser and fractional laser), cryotherapy, radiation, or surgical removal can treat them. Usually, drugs containing retinoids are an effective keloid skin treatment. A preferred skin treatment for surgery marks is a topical solution called scar silicon sheeting, which uses silicone to remove the damaged tissues. 
Here are some natural ways to treat burn, acne, and surgery marks. These avoid surgery, injections, or drugs. Roasted turmeric powder along with pure clarified butter helps in lightening marks. Baking soda can help fade marks, especially those of acne. Olive oil is an antioxidant and helps as a skin treatment. Fenugreek seeds and potato peel are also effective in treating burn marks. Drinking plenty of water helps a blemish-free skin as water helps eject toxins from the body.

These points on various skin treatments can help you get a clearer skin, through laser, surgery, or simple home remedies.
