They aren't scars. Dr's just say that because they don't know what they are, but they're not scars. Ever notice it's usually only women who have it? Ever notice it's only on the chin? That right there says it's not scars.
I was going to bring up PCOS, because I found out I have it too. That may be the common denominator.
I don't know how to get rid of them yet. I've been taking an anti androgen and that doesn't work. Not sure I would go with fraxel, especially if they aren't scars. If I find something that works I'll update.
I have lots of scars like that all over the face. It's depressing, because if they are keloid scars i'm not even admissible for laser treatments or subcision for my deeper holes
Edit : And im a man
I have the same thing
Few years ago I had small bumps on my chin (hardly noticeable)
Years after they are spreading and getting bigger.
My chin would sometimes suffer from breakouts and most bumps comes after already healed pimple.
It is the same color of my skin, like skin access.If I stretches the skin, the bumps disappear
I went to 3 different dermatologist, and I didnt get a clear answer...(maybe rosacea...sebaceous glands growth). I tried fraxel laser, but it didnt help.
I would love to hear any opinion
Sandy my chin is like that but i also scars like that on my nose and on my cheeks, , so i suppose that our skin heals similarly. Because my acne was extremely severe (and because of my, and my father's stupidity , was untreated), I also have lots and lots of holes on my cheeks and temples. You said that fraxel didn't improve the "bumped" scars, but I was wondering if Fraxel worsened the rest of your skin. I'm thinking on doing fraxel and laser treatments, and I'm really scared if my skin heals like bumps, which is gonna be even worse.
Thank you so much
