Who doesn’t want clear, beautiful skin? Hollywood actors and actresses attribute some aspects of their fame to their well conditioned skin, and with how we have grown to integrate silver screen icons into our culture, we have equated clear, beautiful skin with desirableness. And clear, beautiful skin means acne-free complexion. This is the reason why people generally seek acne removal techniques once a breakout is experienced.
But is there such a thing as acne removal? Can acne really be removed once they have appeared? A lot of cosmetic and skin care products promise to do that very thing. They guarantee acne removal for as long as you use their creams, liquids or medications in their recommended dosages. The truth of the matter is that these products do not really effectuate acne removal, per se. They help prevent the eruption of acne on your skin, yes. And in the event that acne has already erupted, these cosmetic and skin care products would give your skin the nutrients it deserves to combat the ill effects of acne so that their breakout would be curtailed. Also, these same products would help prevent aggravating the skin disorder, and would expedite the healing of the scars that would be left by acne.
Antibiotics have also been popular acne removal options. But then again, acne removal isn’t really what antibiotics do. Instead, these medications make our antibodies stronger so that they could fight off possible infection that can be caused by irritated acne. Regular intake of antibiotics is discouraged, as our antibodies can become immune from the reinforcing effects of the said medication.
Laser resurfacing, or the application of soft and highly focused light on the surface of the skin to “burn” acne is only advisable for minor acne types like blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Laser resurfacing is actually the closest literal equivalent of actual “acne removal” technique that is currently available. This is because laser resurfacing will actually remove acne. Since burning would naturally produce scars, people are quite hesitant to avail of this acne removal method. But such worries are unfounded. Laser resurfacing also includes a post-burning treatment that would stimulate the instant growth of collagen. Collagen is an insoluble fibrous protein that is responsible for giving the skin its texture. Though highly effective, laser resurfacing is quite expensive. Do consider this only if your budget would allow.
A lot of methods are being packages as acne removal, leading you to resort to them once acne breakout is experienced. But only a few of them can actually remove acne. Others simply supplement the skin to make it stronger against skin disorders.
