Acne Scars

 

Acne scar comes in many different types: dark spots, boxcar, ice pick, rolling, or raised.

Glycolic Acid + Salicylic Acid

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid) are both clinically proved to be effective for all types of acne scars. Both ingredients are not only useful in treating or preventing acne, but in combination, they also help increase skin cell turnover, dislodge dead skin cells, reduce redness and swelling and reduce the appearance of acne scars over time. If you are looking for a booster in addition to your current skincare regimen, check out Mesoestetic - Resurfacing Peel Booster

Retinol (Vitamin A Derivative)

Topical Retinol should be considered for stubborn Atrophic or Depressed acne scars, e.g. boxcar, ice pick or rolling scars. Retinol is known for its skin clearing and smoothing benefit as it optimises skin cell regeneration and improves discolouration. Please do note Retinol can cause your skin to be more sensitive initially and you must wear a sunscreen before sun exposure. Check out Mesoestetic - Post Peel 1% Retinol Concentrate which is suitable to use with AHA or BHA treatment. 

Sunscreen

Sun causes inflammation and Melanin formation which are both unfavourable when you are treating dark spots and scars. Mesoestetic - Melan 130 Pigment Control SPF50+ Sunscreen is a dermatologist-tested broad spectrum sunscreen that contains Azeloglyzine which Melanin synthesis and improves the uneven skin tone or dark spots.
