How to remove acne scars

Did you know that I suffer from cystic acne?

I started getting acne in my late teens and it still plagues me to this day.

I have tried many treatments over the years, from accutane from to holistic vitamins. I have finally found a treatment from my dermatologist that keeps my skin clear - but, I have accepted that this is likely something I will deal with my whole life.

Now, luckily, because of my new treatment plan, I haven't had any major outbreaks for more than a year. (By the way, when I was accutane, the most aggressive, controversial and possibly dangerous treatment, it worked brilliantly on me. I would take it for 2-4 months, and it would only keep me acne free for 6-8 months.)

Anyway, I recorded a tutorial that I thought would help those of you who do suffer from acne scars. It is most effective when you don't have new outbreaks, so once you figure out a treatment plan that works for you, then the following skin care regimen will help you rapidly reduce the scars.

Also known as Collagen induction therapy  or skin needling is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles.

The tool is called a dermaroller.

The micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing, as well as, preventing signs of aging and scarring. 

Doctors say that it works the same way lasers do, only you're injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.

For best and most rapid results, it is recommended that you do this once or twice a week.

A1.5-mm handheld roller is long enough to improve the appearance of acne scars. However, for severe acne scars, you may need even longer needles for maximum results, so you'll want to find a dermatologist or facialist who performs microneedle therapy treatments. 

I used Banish Acne Scars...
