Salaam

Hope everyone's in good health and imaan!

Ok just a quick question... Does anyone know of any good treatments for acne scars? I have some on my face which I HATE! and am trying to find ways to lighten them or get rid of them altogether! So far not found anything that works for me  Sad my skin tone has also become uneven and now I always have to use foundation to cover up before heading out. I'm using the clinique 3 step which is good as a cleansing treatment etc but really need to get rid of the scars.

So if anyone has any ideas how I can do this I would appreciate it.

Wsalam,

There's a new product by Clinique? that supposedly treats brown spots. But most ppl say it doesn't do anything. I really don't think any over the counter products will work/has worked for acne/discoloration scars. I think if you have money you should visit a dermatologist and they can tell you the best thing to do. They might prescribe something that will work for real or recommend a procedure like those derma-abrasion things??

Walaikum Asalaam Sr.,

I am inconsistent myself but from what I have researched and even tried (but inconsistently) ..aloe vera works really well. The more raw it is the better, but you can always purchase aloe vera gel. Honey apparently works too Smiley

The key is consistency...

As far as outside treatments, I ve liked microdermabrasion but that is pretty rough on the skin, make sure you go to a good person, and my treatments have included "oxygen."

wsalam,

I was just with a friend who is a PA in derm and asked her! She said the only thing u can do is chemical peels. Like a number of them over a few years!! (100 bux a pop!) And also get prescription strength hydroquinone to fade scars. She said wal-mart sells an over the counter fade cream that has a tiny bit of hydroquinone in it?? (although i thought hydroquinone was banned in the US/certain countries??)

Seems like a lotta work for ur face? And just the word "chemical peel" kinda scares me. Maybe we should just wear niqab all the time?  niqabisis

Assalaamuaikum sis,

Although all the above mentioned procedures and meds do provide a solution,the best that i know about and is long lasting is laser treatment for really bad scars.. but u should check with a dermatologist first to know if ur skin can handle that.


All the best!

Chemical peels are veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy strong and hurt a lot. I got one done once.... but If I am not mistaken you can get very light chemical peels while your getting a facial done so your skin won't literally be burned. Maybe I should try them again :| Are Micro-dermabrasions not recommended ?

Hydroquinone, hmmm I don't know how valid this source is http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=64167  but basically it talks about how it was banned but over the counter with 2% can be sold or prescription with 4 %.

It is a lot of work...it might not be if some people (myself) would be more consistent and not let it drag on for years... but even if you wear Niqab at the end of the day you see yourself in a mirror :|


Sr. Mubaraka ... I think generally (maybe I m wrong) for whatever reasons dermatologists want to avoid that? some do and some dont... I guess it's because the lady (not a dermatologist but a skin specialist) that I go to is more on the herbal side and believes if I really watch what I eat my skin would improve along with the facials /micros she gives me.

A Dr once said that hormonal imbalances and pollution are a major factor in breaking out...and for those people who argue that it doesn't matter what you eat ...well food causes hormonal imbalances too.

lol I am done rambling  Embarrassed

Take starflower oil capsules 1000mg, stop taking it during your period tho & don't take it if your pregnant or trying for a baby, take vitamin c with zinc as well. Eat lots of fresh fruit & drink loads of water.

Don't over cleanse your face, if you use too many harsh chemicals on your face your skin is going to over compensate by producing more oil because you've stripped the natural oils all off.

Use a face mask once a week, I use moisturising ones, let your skin breathe don't cake it in make up. Remove all make up before you go to bed, get yourself a good face cleanser & use it before bed, so your skin is clean during the night which is when skin tends to repair itself.

Get sleep, too little sleep causes spots too.

Try not to touch your face too much.

And try not to stress about yur skin, you'll be ok Inshallah.


Give any new skincare regime a chance before deciding it's not working. It will take a while for your skin to clear up.

^ all very good points (blackrose and fozia) ... key is to be consistent with them and not to give up after a few days (as it takes weeks ..if not months *sigh*) lol  Embarrassed

For actual scars and to even skin tone, use bio oil, it absorbs into the skin quickly and really does work on scars.

Use it on cleansed skin at night.

And you will need to keep it up for a while before there's any noticeable difference.

Well, for scare treatment there is no product which would give you 100% result. They would just make you scar bit lighter or you can even go with oxygen products which are highly rich in oxygen contents.

schweizer Kosmetik for better skin results.
