Light Acne Scars

I have light acne scars on my cheeks and going up my forehead. Is there anything I can do to erase these scars instead of getting a $1500.00 laser treatment?

i tried so many different products for acnes scars and nothing worked!!!! However I found out about Meladerm and actually using it right now. I'll give u updates about it. So far it's alright, doesnt cause me any more acnes (i have very very senstive skin).

Re: Light Acne Scars

I use Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating wash. I also take vitamins for vitamin C and D3 and drink a lot of water. Those generally do well to significantly reduce hyperpigmentation for me.

Have you seen a derm?

There are lots of products from drugstores and department stores with retinol or AHA or other chemical exfoliants. A derm may be able to give you a prescription version that could help with cell turnover.

Re: Light Acne Scars

Hey Stephanie,

I defiitely feel you! You can try products with vitamin C or retinol -- they're both exfoliants so they'll eventually fade the spots (Clinique makes a foundation that helps fade acne scars, it actually works pretty well). However, if your skin is indented then you'll need to see a dermatologist. Hope this helps!

Don't do lasers

I have the same issue and DO NOT DO LASERS!! I did and it was a total waste of $$. It was the worst decision I ever made, I spent so much $$ and I still have acne and the scars. I would use retinoids, glycolic acids, salicylic acids should speed up cell turnover. You can also cover the scars up pretty good with mineral makeup.
