Best Way to Treat Red Acne Indentation

Posted in Acne Scars, Acne Tips by capacitr. | Leave a Comment
We've all been there - its midnight and you have a giant pimple on your cheek that you can't help but squeeze!  However, what about when squeezing the pimple results in a red acne indentation on your face that lasts for weeks? Is there anything that can be done to help the acne mark to heal more quickly? Dr. Schweiger explains that, "The main issue here is squeezing your pimples. This is something that should be avoided at all costs, as it leads to increased inflammation on the skin and an increased risk of scarring.  You can make an appointment to be seen at the Clear Clinic the same day for a quick anti-inflammatory injection, which flattens the pimple out within a day or so." If a red indentation does develop, there are a few things that can be done to help the skin to heal as quickly as possible.  Regular use of a topical retinoid will stimulate skin cell turnover, allowing the healthier skin cells to rejuvenate the skin more quickly than they otherwise would.  Additionally, there are laser treatments (such as Laser Genesis and the KTP laser) that can decrease the appearance of redness on the skin.  For a true indentation, the Fractional CO2 laser can be used to treat only the affected area and promote healthy collagen growth to fill in the indentation.
