Facial scars can take many forms, mostly unsightly. That is why we go to great lengths trying to get rid of them. These scars may be caused by acne, burns, injuries, or surgery. What makes facial scars a worse problem than scars on other parts of the body is the fact that the face is constantly exposed and not easily covered for protection. Even facial creams and ointments used for treatment tend to rub away for the same reason.
It is important that we treat skin wounds properly in the first place so that resulting scars are kept minimal or maybe even prevented altogether. Keeping it clean is the general rule. This is best done using water and mild soap. If your lifestyle entails a lot of exposure to sunlight, always put on sunscreen so your scars don’t get red or brown from irritation.
But if you’re really looking to make a bold move addressing your facial scars problem, there are numerous facial scar treatment options available for you. This includes good old trusty home remedies, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and plastic surgery. Your dermatologist will be your ally in determining the best choice considering your budget, health risks, and scar type.
