Acne Scars! Help!

3 posts in this topic

Hello so I have been on this journey to get clear skin for the last six painful months!!! It has truly been a roller coaster ride trying to find the correct medications that are good for my skin to help it stay clear! I have now been on tretinoin for 12 weeks and my skin has cleared up a bit from before, however I still get some breakouts but am hoping that with time this problem will subside. One of my top concerns now though is ACNE SCARS!!! They are a real pain. Even after my ugly inflamed acne has gone, I am left with these horrible scars all over my face! I was hoping the tretinoin would help this but dont know if I am really seeing much of a difference in them. Will tretinoin help them over time? And also does anyone have any suggestions of other ways I could get rid of them? My derm suggested chemical peels, but I dont have the money for that at the time.So if anyone has any other ideas pleaseeeee let me know! I am desperate to get rid of them! Thanks a lot to anyone who replies
