Scarring on the upper body (Follicular Macular Atrophy)
Posted 20 March 2011 - 11:06 AM
I have a type of scarring on the chest and upper back/shoulders called Follicular Macular Atrophy or perifollicular elastolysis. It looks like raised white bumps/spots on the skin. I've read a lot about it online, but there doesn't seem to be much information regarding treatment. I've had it for over a year so it's clearly not going away even though it might have improved a little.
As I understand it's related to decreased collagen and I really started to notice it after my accutane course. Can moisturising the area help to increase collagen production? And what do you guys think in regards to treatment or this?

I heard that using a pumice stone so I tried starting yesterday. I might have gotten a little too excited though - now I have this bruise on my shoulder which really hurts..
I think it might be able to improve the scars and I'm going to continue, though no try to rub it all of in one time again!
Have any of you tried this?
