Does salicylic acid make scars?

Recommended Posts

Salicylic acid is good for acne but is it also easy to cause scarring while using it?

No. Benz Peroxide causes severe drying and in turn can cause u to heal bad and leave a scar. not Salicylic Acid though.

i think SA can, and will do so (if you are prone to scarring)...it seems to break up collagen and cause a keratinolytic effect, making old acne that faded away gently to re-scar

No it wont. It works like all retinoids do in that it peels away the surface of the skin. Obviously retinoids do this a lot more effectively. But they are said to improve scarring so why would a product that works similar to them CAUSE scarring.

Nothing is gonna cause u to scar severely. If u are gonna scar u are gonna scar just take care of the acne and move on.
