While teenagers often worry about acne, it can be a much more debilitating issue for adults. Even acne scars, remnants of puberty, can cause worries for adults concerned about their appearance. Luckily, there are a wide variety of cosmetic surgery with quick recovery to select from to reduce the signs of acne.
Getting rid of ace scars can be accomplished in a number of ways. One of the most effective and permanent is generating collagen growth in the skin to repair the damage itself. However, there are other, more temporary solutions, which can provide the same benefits for a limited amount of time with a swifter recovery period. Some of the various methods at both ends of the spectrum include:
Chemical peels – Chemical peels are a more permanent solution that remove the top layer of skin where scars reside, boosting appearance. This requires some recovery time, however, and isn’t suitable for all patients.
Dermal fillers – Using a dermal filler can smooth out skin and eliminate acne scars temporarily. This best suits those trying to enhance their looks for a specific event, such as an office party or a wedding, but who don’t want to spend a lot of time in recovery or money on the procedure.
Laser skin resurfacing – Laser skin resurfacing also removes the top layer of skin, eliminating scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. This ensures a smoother complexion, and can even be performed over more sensitive areas of the face, such as the eyelids, ears or mouth.
