Facial Scar Removal Treatment Options – Laser or Creams?

Facial Scar RemovalIf you have scars that you are trying to rid yourself of, you are faced with the daunting task of determining the best way to treat or remove them. Two of the most popular (although in no way similar) methods for facial scar removal are creams and beams, lasers to be more specific. Now, both of these treatments are used for scars all over the body. Some people employ them for chicken pox scar removal, others still seek them out for injury scars. No matter what the source of your unsightly skin mark, you will likely ponder both creams and surgical scar removal as options, deciding which is best for you is an entirely different matter.

The first question you have to ask yourself is how much do I want to spend on my facial scar removal? A tub of even the finest acne scar removal cream complete with the exotic slime of snails is far less than you will spend on laser acne scar removal. If money is no object, this really won’t be an issue for you, however if you are like most people, cost will play a role in your decision, and there is no debate on which form of facial scar removal is the least expensive option.

Once you have weighed your wallet, you will want to explore the differences in results that both methods offer. While many creams purportedly cause your scars to vanish, the reality is that the best that you can really hope for when using creams for facial scar removal is to reduce their appearance, and not necessarily hope for an all out removal. The results of the laser however, are substantially more impressive.

Ultimately, you will need to determine how important your scar removal is to you, and what you are willing to give up in order to remove the marks that are bothering you. One of the best places to start is to consult with a dermatologist about your scars. And, remember, if they’re less than a year old, sometimes the most effective and certainly cheapest option, is simply to wait. Believe it or not, even after a year, many scars diminish substantially or even completely in some cases. It’s worth a shot!
