Okay, so after being on a strict regimen (see signature) for almost 6 weeks, I think my acne is beginning to retreat *viciously knocks on wood*. Whenever my acne decides that it wants to disappear, I know I am going to be left with a less than perfect complexion. All my scarring is thankfully superficial, but my skin tone is soooo uneven. I would day 95% of my scarring is dark marks, mixed in with the odd red mark. I have one tiny tiny indented scar by my right eyebrow, but I'm not too concerned about that right now.
The problem is that my skin is super sensitive. I'm pretty sure using AHA+ is out for me, because last time I put glycolic acid on my skin, I felt like my skin was melting off. I'm going to start using Paula's Choice BHA to get rid of the clogged pores on my forehead and chin, so any scar treatment I want to attempt has to be somewhat gentle. I'm considering going back to doing microdermabrasion, but the drawbacks are increase in whiteheads, skin is really sensitive afterwards so I may have to take breaks from my acne medication, and obviously the price. $85-$100/session isn't really in my budget right now. Does anyone have any experience with fading this type of scarring?
My goal is to have the perfect complexion by next summer. So maybe I can actually go to the beach, or go swimming, or be outside in the heat without having to worry about my skin. Seems like lightyears away until that will actually be a reality. Anyways, thanks for any replies in advance!
Any replies, success stories, and advice are very much appreciated!
