Early acne treatment = scar prevention !

Treating acne early can clear the skin, of course…but did you know that treating it fast can also help prevent long-term scars? Here are seven science-backed reasons (Adapted from American Academy of Dermatology) about why you should treat your acne early to prevent scarring!

Faster Results

Acne treatment takes time regardless of acne severity. That said, it does take less time and effort to clear a few pimples than a full-on breakout that includes blackheads, whiteheads and deep-seated acne cysts.

Less Scars

In general, the more severe the acne, the more likely it is to leave a scar. While severe acne is most likely to leave scars, mild acne can scar when picked — treating acne at the first signs can help prevent someone from developing a habit of picking at their acne. 

Stop Lingering Spots After Acne Clears

Anyone who has medium-to-dark colored skin may see a dark spot appear when an acne pimple, cyst or nodule clears. Dermatologists call this post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). People with fair skin may see a red spot where acne once was. These spots can linger for months and many consider it worse to have these lingering spots than the acne itself.

Prevent Mild Acne From Becoming Severe

Early treatment can prevent a few pimples from progressing to widespread blackheads, whiteheads and deep, painful acne.

Decrease The Chance You’ll Need Strong Medication

When acne becomes severe, medicine is sometimes needed to clear the breakout. These medicines have possible side effects and require close monitoring by a dermatologist. That means more office visits. Clearing early, before acne gets severe, can save a trip to the dermatologist and a prescription.

Avoid Years Of Acne

Dermatologists now see kids as young as 7 to 12-years-old with acne. Treating acne early and keeping it under control can prevent future breakouts. That can add up to a substantial number of years without acne.

Sidestep Emotional Distress

Studies show that acne can take a toll on a person's emotional well-being. Many say their self esteem suffered after developing acne. Some people with acne even withdraw from people in their lives. The severity of the acne doesn’t seem to matter — acne can have na egative effect on self-esteem and relationships whether one has mild or severe acne.
