3. Simple moisturizing and hydration can be excellent for acne. Scarred skin, even more so than regular skin, requires a healthy environment for growth and maintenance -especially since scarred skin loses much of its ability to balance water and nutrients. Good moisturizers are those that don’t feel too smothering, and also don’t irritate or cause pain to the skin. The most important thing to remember when dealing with acne scars is that you should be patient with one kind of treatment, and expect to see results over time.
4. Medically, when people think of treating scars, laser resurfacing, and laser redness removal frequently come to mind.

For example, in treating very thick scars called keloids, which often cannot be treated by laser, your doctor can inject small amounts of steroid into them to slowly degenerate them; in treating blemished skin, redness, or ice-pick scars, your doctor may prescribe medications called keratolytics, or use nutrient serums to improve the health and appearance of your skin at the same time; in treating acne breakouts before important events, your doctor may use tiny injections, or very quick cryosurgery techniques to rapidly reduce acne before your wedding, graduation, or other important life event!
