Last year, when I was 15, I broke out into some moderate to severe acne.
After trying some over the counter products, I went to the dermatologist
who eventually subscribed me some pills that worked wonders in getting rid
of my acne. I had moderate to severe acne for several months before it went
Because of this, my skin has developed some slight scarring and blemishes
from the more severe pimples. It has been almost a full year now since my
acne has gone away and my skin seems to still be healing. Although I am glad
to have clear skin again I am depressed by the scars that I might have to
carry for the rest of my life.
I don’t want to resort to extreme things such as plastic surgery or anything
either, unless it;s my last choice. Those things cost alot and usually have a
long recovery period that I couldn’t really deal with in this time of my life.
I would prefer suggestions of creams or possibly pills.
Also, will the scars heal up anymore without treatment? It’s been less then a
year since the acne went away so I think my skin is still healing, but is it
possible that the scars are just temporary while my skin continues to heal?
Currently I am using some general neutrogena skin care products that help
make my skin feel better and more comfortable, but arn’t specific for acne
scars. I am going to make another appointment with a dermatologist but I
was wondering if any1 here has had similar problems and what they did about
it. The scars aren’t to bad. Any recommendations?
sometimes the cost of treatment make some people can not afford it
so the solutions if not
as they cost alot
there are :
-microdermabrasion and dermabrasion
-creams used to fade simple superficial scars
