Annoying scar yet to be treated.

Recommended Posts

Acne is a problem I have learned to deal with and manage. When I see my acne I don't get too unhappy because I know in some time it will go away. However, when I see this scar, it makes every day a bad one. I need to know how to treat this scar, that is all I am concerned with right now.

The image I have uploaded is from about 6 months ago. From that time it has gotten much worse and the second scar in the image which looks like it is starting to form has already come out now. Why is this happening and how can I treat it?

I went to a derm at a walk in clinic awhile ago because I had been getting rashes on my face. I also wanted to know if I could treat this scar. She noticed the scar and the other breakage in my skin and said I should also use the cream for the rash to fix it. Well my rash has faded away now but it looks as if this cream has only made the scar worse.

Please help, I am in desperate need, I have been trying to fix this for about 3 years now.

I just looked at the pic again... It doesn't seem to be raised.

Well, you see the 'problem' is that your scar seems to be hypopigmented. Which means that it's colorless. Or white. As far as I know there's not really anything that you can do to make it the same color as your skin. Unless there are topical products out there that are the opposite of things like Kojic acid, which decrease the amount of pigmentation. It's all I can tell you, really. There may be a way to increase the pigmentation of your scar but I'm not aware of it.

To me, your scar is noticable but not disturbing or anything like that.

I have probably posted the same reply to other scar sufferers as well. But I will reply to you with the same answer. Look into TotalFX or Fraxel Re:pair (not the old Fraxel). These gave good results from reading from every source that I got my hands on. I personally is in the process of choosing one.

Kools22, that scar is so insignificant, really, no one will think anything of it, most people wont even notice it, everyone has marks on their face, very very few people have flawless skin, i would just leave it, i wouldn't muck about with lasers or skin peels over the head of such a small imperfection.
