All The Secrets Behind Acne Scars And Collagen Treatment

Scars are reminders of previous injury, they appear when a tissue is injured. In the case of acne the problem is provoked by the sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells, which block the pores. As a result, the place will simply inflame. If we are to divide the types of scars, we can say that there are two more serious acne scars: the icepick (that appears as a depressed area) and the keloids (when the tissue is raised). One of the most successful therapy for acne scars consists in collagen treatment.

The combination of acne scars and collagen treatment is widely used in dermatological clinics all over the world. Collagen for scar treatment is used as directed injections in the acne affected area. Collagen is a normal element of the human body. Used for stretching the skin, it can also fill scars if needed. Collagen injections are no easy thing to do, especially if animal-extracted collagen is used, since there are people allergic to collagen different from the human one.

Acne scars collagen treatments are a bit more difficult to apply. Most people having immunity problems can't be injected with non-human collagen. For those with a normal immune - system other forms of collagen are a good alternative. Collagen therapy is a safe and non-surgical procedure, it can hide normal skin problems that appear from aging or more serious problems like acne scars. The effects of collagen injections is not permanent so you must take repeated shots every year.

Some consider it like some form of addiction and reject this kind of intervention especially in the aging business, many find it ridiculous for some old woman to try desperately to look younger. But in the acne scar domain, collagen treatment is a hit for those with serious problems that want to live a normal �unscarred� life. Collagen is found also in muscle, tendons and bones, all in all providing structural support.

Inside the skin it forms a kind of network and on this new support cells grow. It is on this feature that acne scars collagen treatments are based. This kind of therapy is not exclusive. It is far more efficient if other acne treatments are used as complementary methods. Such alternatives to collagen injections are : laser treatments, skin surgery, steroid drugs or skin grafting. Talk to your physician about such possible treatment combinations.
