There are several effective hints that you can do to help to prevent acne scarring.
- First of all, if you have active acne, seek medical advice. A good starting point is your General Practitioner and not a laser clinic or beautician. Do not undergo Omnilux light treatments or acne light treatments unless you are medically supervised. In the majority of times, your GP can start you on simple, but effective acne treatments.
- Secondly, develop a simple, non-abrasive skin care regime. This involves simple cleansers, and moisturisers and a light moisturiser. Remember to use sunscreen on a daily basis, especially if you live in Queensland. UV light can darken acne scars, inducing post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
- Never squeeze pimples. Trauma from popping pimples can cause scarring. Yes, it can be hard not to squeeze but resist the temptation. Prescription creams can effectively treat your acne.
