Home treatments to remove acne scars from the face

Two excellent options for home treatments to completely eliminate the marks left by pimples are exfoliating with sugar or coffee, which can be done while showering, being a good option for those who have few and smooth acne scars on their face; and the treatment with the Dermaroller, which is more indicated to eliminate acne scars, in greater quantity and deeper.

For better results, it is recommended to use a sunscreen daily and a diet rich in vitamin E and C, because these vitamins are essential for skin he alth.

Option 1. Home Exfoliation

This skin scrub can be done once a week with a mixture of sugar or coffee and almond oil, because it removes the most superficial layer of the skin leaving the skin more uniform and with less scars.


  • 2 tablespoons of sugar or coffee grounds
  • 3 tablespoons sweet almond oil

Preparation mode

Place the ingredients in a glass and mix well. Then rub the mixture on the acne scarred areas, using circular motions, for 3 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Then dry with a soft towel and moisturize the skin with a face cream recommended for your skin type.

Option 2. Use Dermaroller

Another possibility is to apply the Dermaroller to the skin every 20 or 30 days. This treatment consists of passing a small device called a DermaRoller all over the face, which can be purchased in beauty stores or on the internet.It contains between 200 and 540 needles in a row, which when passing on the skin make small holes, facilitating the action of healing creams or serums.

The small holes also promote the production of new collagen fibers, being an excellent treatment to give more firmness to the skin and eliminate the depressions caused by scars, leaving the skin more uniform. This roller can be found with needles from 0.3 to 2 mm, and for home application it is better to choose 0.3 or 0.5 mm because they are not as deep and have less risk of infection.

After passing the roller all over the face, or only in the desired areas, it is normal for the skin to be swollen and reddened, and it is necessary to apply creams to accelerate healing and that are soothing.
