6 Doctor-Approved Ways To Reduce Face Scars

A list of the best natural and clinical treatments to get  rid of stubborn face scars

Scars on the face are so common—they happen due to acne, burns, surgeries, wounds, and even accidents. Face scars can also trigger anxiety and hinder confidence. If you want to get rid of any scars on face, you have come to the right place! We highlight the top 6 ways—natural as well as clinical treatments—that get rid of face scars.

Natural ways to reduce face scars

Oil massage: Gentle massage around the face scar may help reduce the appearance of the scar. Regular massage can reduce collagen build-up in the tissues, which can flatten out the scars on face. According to the British Skin Foundation, it is advisable to massage the skin for around five minutes, three to four times a day. To get the maximum benefit out of the massage, you can use oils like:

  • Rosehip seed oil: This face scar-fighting oil is high in antioxidants and essential fatty acids that can heal damaged and dehydrated skin.  
  • Coconut oil: Coconut oil can help treat your face scar by acting as a thick, moisturising barrier as the skin heals. It also boosts collagen production that can help minimise scarring  by binding new skin tissue together.
  • Lavender oil: Lavender oil may help with the scars on face by promoting cell and tissue growth. It has antibiotic, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties.

Aloe vera: Aloe vera is an inexpensive, all-natural ingredient that can help you get rid of any stubborn face scar. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it can help gradually reduce the appearance of scars on face. Here's how you should apply it:

  • Start by cleansing your face and drying it gently.
  • Apply a thin layer of aloe vera gel to the affected areas.
  • Let it dry for a few minutes.
  • Follow up with your usual skincare routine.

Honey: We all know how beneficial honey is for our body, but did you know that this delicious ingredient can also help you reduce the appearance of scars on face? Honey speeds up your skin cells’ healing process and reduces inflammation. You can use honey as a spot treatment for your face scar. Apply it everyday or every other day as a paste at the site of your scarring to get the best results.

Clinical treatments to treat face scars

Chemical peels: Chemical peels are a great option to combat face scars. Chemical peels contain mild acids that are applied in a single layer on the skin. They work by removing the top layer of the skin and uncovering new, healthy skin. Chemical peels can also stimulate the body’s natural response to produce collagen, which can help fill in scars on face. Biolite’s Silk Peel is a brilliant option if you want to get rid of facial scars. This medical-grade treatment uses powerful diamond tip exfoliation while delivering topical nourishment to the skin. And the best part is that the treatment is customisable. Our experts carefully customise this treatment based on your needs and requirements.Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is another great option for face scar improvement. It is recommended for scars on face as it removes and renews the surface level of the skin. Another benefit of this treatment is that it requires minimal downtime. You can resume your day to day activities immediately after the procedure. In this treatment, the dermatologist uses a small hand-held device to gently remove the outer layer of your skin. It reveals smooth, toned skin underneath. Microdermabrasion works wonders on new and light scars. However, this treatment is not very effective for deeper scars.  We at Biolite, provide one of the best microdermabrasion treatments for scars on face. Laser Therapy: If you want to get rid of deep and stubborn scars on face, you should definitely give laser therapy a try. According to a 2012 study, laser therapy can effectively reduce the appearance of a face scar. This treatment targets the blood vessels within the scar tissue. It uses focused light therapy to either remove the outer layer of the skin surface or stimulate the production of new skin cells to cover damaged skin cells. It is a safe and effective procedure. However, it should only be performed by a board-certified dermatologist. Since this treatment uses light and heat to treat the skin, you can experience mild side effects:

  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain

The results of this treatment are long-lasting. However, you may need to repeat the treatment a few times for best results.
