Like so many people here, I've suffered a lot with acne during my teens. And altough, I didn't contract the most serious forms of this disease, like cystic or nodular acne, my acne was somewhat moderate to severe.
Once I turned 18, it became less and less severe. (I'm 19 now)
And my scarring was suprisingly light.
This was until I decided, 10 months ago, to start popping my very few reaining pimples, which left, unfortunately some serious scars in my right cheek, and in my T-zone.
My acne is mostly gone, but the scars are, obviously, very upseting.
I did contact a dermatologist, who said to me that a great variety of treatments was available and that the scars would become almost unoticeable. Those were very promising words.
However I did my research online, and, what I've found is very very disapointing.
From what I've read, there is absolutely no efficient treatment in order to remove facial scars . Most of them are so terrible, that have side effects that are even worse than the scars themselves. I mean it seems stupid that doctors even propose those treatments at all, given their very small sucess rate, and their horrible side effects.
So I ask, Is there any hope of removing these scars. Or are they a burden to carry for life?
