Table of contents

NOOANCE has developed for you a simple and effective cosmetic routine consisting of anti-stain beauty products , as well as powerful and moisturizing active ingredients such as vitamin C and tranexamic acid. Here is an overview of the beauty gestures to adopt to find smooth, luminous and flawless skin.

How do acne scars form?

THE The skin's natural healing process is disrupted when sebaceous glands do not produce enough sebum or produce too much. Indeed, even if sebum can create a shiny effect on the face that we prefer to avoid, it remains essential for the proper functioning of the epidermis: it combines with water to form the hydrolipidic barrier , a protective barrier of the skin against external aggressions, and stimulate the cellular renewal .

THE marks and scars pimples form when the skin is damaged by acne or inflammation: these lesions damage the tissues and penetrate deep into the epidermis, which is why the scars tend to be persistent and last for years .

Which Skin Type is Most Affected?

THE Oily skin and acne-prone skin are often prone to pimple marks since the skin's balance is disrupted. Acne-prone skin produces too much sebum, which clogs pores and promotes the appearance of inflammation. Once the pimple disappears, it leaves a mark under the skin, which appears as red or dark spots.

THE Fair skin is not at greater risk for the appearance of scars, however these will be more visible on a fair complexion. While on the dark skin , scars tend to take the form of brown spots, due to melanin: this is what we call hyperpigmentation spots .

Acne Marks and Scars: What's the Difference?

Red or Dark Marks

They are caused by imperfections and can remain visible for several months. However, it is possible to attenuate them, or make them disappear, with targeted care products and a good moisturizer . It is necessary to apply daily a sun protection to prevent them from turning into brown spots.

Atrophic Scars and Hypertrophic Scars

These types of scars are the result of repeated pimples, inflammation or severe acne. They take the appearance of raised scars and only surgical intervention can make them disappear completely. But today there are cosmetic care ,  creams and serums to improve the appearance of acne scars and fade them lastingly.

Professional Treatments and Medical Care

Several aesthetic techniques allow you to erase the marks left by pimples.

Peeling, Laser and Micro-Needling: Which Treatment to Choose?

The advice of a dermatologist is necessary to carry out these interventions and the treatment chosen must be adapted to the type of acne scars.

  • THE peeling gives a “second skin” effect, it is ideal for raised scars.
  • THE laser acts deeply to stimulate cell renewal and smooth skin texture over the long term.
  • The technique of microneedling consists of passing very fine needles on the skin using a derma roller: it restarts the production of collagen and adapts perfectly to mature skin which is also looking for an anti-aging effect.

Medical Advances for Scar-Free Skin: From Dermabrasion to Injections

There Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure carried out by a dermatologist which consists of accelerating the regeneration of the skin by removing the superficial layers of the skin. This solution is rather reserved for cases of severe acne and persistent scars.

Among the new techniques of aesthetic medicine practices, Hyaluronic acid injections can be very effective in filling hollow scars and thus improving their appearance.
