Everyone hates to have scars on their body and if they are on the face, they become all the more frustrating as they are visible to you every time you look into the mirror. They are like daily reminders of some accident or an injury. There can be many causes that can be attributed to these facial scars. If you had a surgery or suffered an injury, particularly those which required stitches, they tend to leave marks even though they are small and hardly noticeable. Facial scars can also happen due to acne, especially due to picked at the skin or popped blemishes.
Whatever may be the reason for facial scars, how to remove them is more important. There are many options available to you for getting rid of them and make your face look beautiful as much as you want.
One of the easiest solutions to scarring is prevention. Since, the skin of our face is very sensitive, it requires utmost care and attention. This way you can avoid the appearance of scars on your skin.
Apart from this, there are some natural scar remedies also. One thing you can think about is fruits especially citrus fruits like lemons. Citrus fruits help killing bacteria which elevates your skin. Applying lemon juice kills the bacteria present in the affected regions and starts the healing process. Lemon juice can work wonders when used with rose water. Apply the mixture on your face, leave it overnight and clean the face with warm water in the morning.
Another really good method for getting rid of facial scars is to apply cocoa or shea butter. It is available in various forms but skin creams are most commonly used and are more effective for small acnes. These butter products are simply used over the effective region, although first testing over small area is preferred to prevent any kind of adverse effect on the skin. Lotions with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera are also effective in scar removal.
If these creams and lotions do not work and your scars are noticeable, scar treatment procedures like facial micro-dermabrasion and collagen injections can also be opted for. Dermabrasion removes the top layer of the facial skin and help healthy, smooth inner skin to come out. Collagen injections increase the production of collagen in the body which enhances the elasticity of the skin.
