Will Vitamin E Cream Work for Acne Scars?

Posted in Acne Scars, Uncategorized by . | Leave a Comment
vitamin eVitamin E has recently been celebrated by the media for its role in scar healing.  But, will Vitamin E cream work for acne scars?  While Vitamin E can be soothing, and the cream that it is contained in can be hydrating to the skin, the unfortunate truth is that it will not treat acne scars.  In fact, we do not recommend that you apply Vitamin E cream to the skin, because its formulation may not be non-comedogenic, and can lead to worsening acne. Treatment of acne scars usually requires either a laser treatment, chemical peels, or dermal fillers.  Some topical medications, such as retinoids, have been shown to improve the texture of shallow acne scars over a long period of time.  Dr. Schweiger notes that, "Treatment of acne scars depends on the type of acne scar, the patient's skin type, whether the patient can tolerate a few days of downtime, and the patient's budget.  At Clear Clinic, we are pleased to offer a variety of treatments for acne scars that work significantly better than Vitamin E Cream, to fit every patient's needs, timeline, and budget.  For patients with pitted acne scars, who can plan for a few days of downtime, the best and most dramatic treatment for acne scars remains the Fractional CO2 resurfacing laser." The Fractional CO2 resurfacing laser works by stimulating the skin's own collagen to fill in the areas of pitted acne scars.  Most patients see between 50-70% improvement of acne scars after just one treatment; even more improvement can be appreciated for months following the treatment.  Since the treatment stimulates your body's own collagen, the results are permanent and natural-looking.
