Acne Scars – How to Diminish the Appearance
Just like you and your skin, your scars are unique. Because no one has experienced the same breakouts you have, and because all of our skin reacts to damage differently, there’s no one true cure to removing acne scars. While lasers and medical treatments have proven to eliminate the appearance of scarring, these treatments are expensive and are often not readily available for everyone. For anyone who is suffering or has suffered from more severe acne, acne scars are a common concern. Many acne-fighting products include powerful skincare ingredients that actively work to improve skin quality and have the ability to remove the scars left by breakouts for a clearer and smoother texture.
The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C make this ingredient a staple in many routines, particularly those concerned with the appearance of scarring. The ingredient works in the skin to improve collagen production, which helps to bring life back to skin damaged by acne. Vitamin C also works to improve the appearance of the skin by fading hyperpigmentation and the discoloration that often accompanies scaring.
Acne Intelligence’s Moisture Extreme contains Vitamin C and other complex repairing ingredients to help acne-prone skin. This moisturizer helps even skin tone, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces skin discoloration, minimizes pore size, and soothes redness and irritation.
Mandelic Acid is an active ingredient included in many acne-fighting products. Mandelic, and other acids, cause a physiologic change in the skin, which helps to improve the skin quality over time. Mandelic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and one of the world’s most powerful anti-aging ingredients. During this anti-aging process, cell turnover is improved, meaning the skin heals faster, and dead skin cells are removed, leaving behind skin that is smoother and appears more youthful. Plus, the antibacterial properties make it a great acne fighter for those dealing with a variety of skin concerns.
The Smart Release Mandelic 8% and 11% are recommended as treatment serums for those suffering from the moderate and severe acne that often causes scarring, and is perfect for those with more sensitive skin.
While mandelic acid chemically exfoliates, microdermabrasion physically exfoliates. Just like with the use of an acid, microdermabrasion scrubs and treatments work to remove the top layer of the skin and can eliminate surface-level scars.
Our Microdermabrasion Scrub is great for all skin types and combines the cellular exfoliating benefits of mandelic acid with the topical exfoliating benefits of the scrub to improve skin texture and appearance.
Your acne scars tell a story, and that story is different than anyone else’s. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach for anyone, and that includes the products we recommend for you. Acne Intelligence’s system is entirely based on your scan through the AI app, and the products we suggest will reflect the results our app has concluded from your scan. As your skin changes, so may our recommendations, so it is important to be uploading your scans each week for the most accurate recommendations. Acne Intelligence not only has these key ingredients, but in the right dosing for your needs. And while all of these ingredients can irritate the skin, through our unique delivery system (PP2) the active ingredients are slowly absorbed causing maximum effectiveness and minimal to no skin irritation.
