How Do You Get Rid Of Acne Scars Naturally?

By Maryam Hampton

Today, I'm going to share with you an update on my skin and how I got rid of my acne scars naturally. If you guys are interested, keep on watching. All right, let's hop right into it.


If you guys have been following me for a while, you know about a year ago I had a really, really bad reaction to a skincare product and my face just went crazy. I had a lot of leftover acne scars all over my face, and it took quite some time for it to go away. So, one of the main things that helped my acne scarring was microneedling, which is another word forcollagen induction therapy.

Does MICRONEEDLING get rid of acne scars?

Banisher 2.0

 

The microneedling system that I've been using more recently is Banish, and this is theirBanisher 2.0. I prefer this type of microneedling over the roller because of the way that it is shaped. The rolling motion doesn't create even downward pressure, and it's rolling into an angle that actually causes the microchannels to not be as narrow as they could be. That is why I prefer the Banisher 2.0, I think it's a lot more effective.

This also has 24 karat gold coated Titanium bristles, which promotescollagenproduction. It has finer and sharper bristles, and it also is less irritating, so you can use this once a week instead of every two weeks.

BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING

If you guys have never tried out microneedling, some of the benefits are that it improves the appearance of acne scars, of course, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, it gives you firmer skin, even skin tone, increase the effectiveness of topical skin care. Once you put in your skin care after this, it goes on a lot easier and it absorbs into your skin better. It also works for all skin types.

HOW TO GET STARTED

To get started, all you have to do is put a little bit of alcohol into this cap and fill it up to disinfect the product. I love that this product comes with a cap. So, it makes the disinfecting process a lot easier.  You're going to disinfect the needles for about five minutes, and then let it air dry for about two minutes before you put it on your skin.

You want to do this on clean, freshly washed skin. Make sure you wash your hands as and everything is clean.

I like to start in the middle of my face, and I will just pull my skin back. As you can see, I'm kind of stretching out my skin, and I am going ahead and stamping these needles into my skin. Now, it doesn't really hurt that much to me, but in some areas, it will hurt more.

I basically just focus on the areas where I have the discoloration and hyperpigmentation and go from there. You don't want to use this on any type of active  acne or breakouts because you don't want to spread the bacterial infection. You're basically just going to focus on any areas that have hyperpigmentation, dark spots, or deep pitted acne scars, but no active acne.

This is something that I personally do probably every three weeks. This is not something that you should do every day.

After you are finished, make sure that you sterilize the Banisher once again, and then let it air dry, and store it. Always put the cap back on when you're finished.

 AFTER TREATMENT

Banish oil

 

After you are done stamping your face, you will notice that your face is really, really red and it may look irritated.  That is when you're going to go ahead and put theBanish Oil on your face. This oil is formulated to use after the microneedling, and it does come with the Banisher 2.0 when you purchase it. This product has glycerin, it has vitamin C, aloe vera, it has rosehip oil, a bunch of great ingredients. After microneedling, you don't want to use any type of product that has a lot of chemicals in it, that is why this oil is perfect to use after your session.

This is something that I would do during the nighttime, so I can wake up the next morning and I will be completely fine. This is not something I would do during the day. You may want to avoid wearing makeup, any type of sun exposure, for twelve hours, that is why it is perfect to do at nighttime.

REALITY

But with acne scarring and  acne scars, remember that this is not something that will just fix your face overnight, it does take quite some time for your skin to heal itself. But always remember that our skin and  our body is constantly, trying to heal itself, so it took about four months for me to see a huge improvement.

Remember to just have patience and don't worry.
