Can aloe vera gel help with acne scars?
As acne scars are deep and due to disorganized collagen scar tissues formed following active acne inflammation, topicals (creams, gel, lotions) are generally ineffective in treating them. Hence, aloe vera gel will not help with acne scars.
Effective treatment of acne scars is mainly based on controlled “wounding” of the affected skin so that the skin may lay down new and more organized collagen during the healing process leading to clinical scar improvement.
Such treatments include microneedling, subcision, scar revision, and energy-based resurfacing e.g. fractional lasers. You can read more about these treatment options in other parts of this website.
Hope this helps!
