Acne pigmentation and scar treatments

Recommended Posts

I have been dealing with acne since the summer of my Freshman year in high school. I am now working on my second Masters Degree and am in my mid 30s. Sadly, I still deal with acne on a daily basis. As if dealing with pimples isn't bad enough, dealing with their marks and scars long after they are gone is sometimes worse. I grew tired of using a cover stick to secretly hide my scars (especially being a guy).

So, I decided to see a cosmetic surgeon. I know it sounds expensive, but it isn't that bad and the procedures aren't bad either. There are so many lasers that can get rid of the crap we have to deal with every day. If you have reached the end of your rope, get a laser treatment from a reputable clinic. They will know exactly what to do for you. I pay anywhere from a $150 to $600 for a treatment that pretty much gets rid of pigmentation left by old acne. This has improved my face so much. I do it once per year and let me tell you, the technology is changing by the month. Some procedures have absolutely no down time, meaning you can go back to work or school the next day with no side effects. Scars often fade immediately, but often continue fading for several weeks after.

In addition to this, I use Retin-A 0.5% since it is pretty mild every night. This really helps with the scars, too. My newest addition to the regimen (since I am still getting acne) is D.Kern's B. Peroxide Gel. I have to tell you, since I have started using this, I haven't been breaking out. I have now found my treatment for preventing acne, as well as how to rid my face of scars if and when I do get more acne. Let me part with a few very wise words.

Life is too short to be depressed about acne scars. Do something about it now. My only regret is not having gone for laser treatments years earlier. They are a life saver and well worth the money. Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help with more info.
