Ok so I'm 18 years old and up until my 18th birthday I pretty much had perfect skin. Then I turned 18, started getting spots. I decided to go on Dianette and I know it works for a lot of people, but I had a really bad initial breakout of inflammatory acne and after 6 months my acne still hadn't subsided. So I decided to come off Dianette and now I use Duac to keep my acne under control.
My acne has improved, I only have a couple of inflamed pimples and then it's just small whiteheads and blackheads. But I have really red scars from my big inflammatory breakout. I know that's just hyperpigmentation and will fade given time. But unfortunately I picked my spots quite badly and now I'm starting to see that my scars aren't completely flat and are slightly indented. I know a lot of people have scars much worse than mine, but I was wondering if these indents will fill in over time since they aren't too deep and I guess I'm still relatively young.
The pics are just of one cheek, but I've got the same on the other cheek too. I also feel like my pores are really enlarged and I just hate the texture of my skin right now. My skin is my biggest insecurity and I just want clear skin again.
I'm willing to wait and let time heal. I know the redness will subside, but do you reckon the indents will? And if not, what treatment would you recommend? And how long should I wait before getting any treatment?
Thank you for reading my post xx
