Hi everyone smile.png


It's my first time posting here and was wondering if you could give me some advice (advise?) on the possible treatments for my scars.


I'm currently on 50 mg Spironolactone and 100 mg Doxycyline. I started taking them about 7 months ago and my face is pretty much acne free now. It's been that way for almost two months now, but my dermatologist wants me to continue with the medication for another 2 months. Anyway, I'm pretty happy that my acne is gone, but now I'm left with all these scars. My appointment with the dermatologist isn't for another 2 more months, but I would still like to know your opinions.


Fyi, I'm a 20 year old female (Southeast Asian)--never had acne until I was 19 so this past year was probably the most depressing period of my life lol. 


Thanks everyone.


P.S. I've included just one pic which is my left cheek. My right cheek looks pretty much the same... just a lot less scars so I thought I should just post the side that looks the worst tongue.png

Fractional co2 + subcision would probably be your best bet IMO

Yeah as acnescar123 ..


But you might want to wait till jace cali puts results about cora therapy (which is just a light form of subcision but mutiple-6-treatments).

If you're bored of Suburbia, burn down your house,lets dance in the colour of the fire.
