My progress on treating scars (red marks)

Recommended Posts

After reading for quite a while I decided to try something against my acne scars. I decided to give glycolic acid a try, it is quite cheap so I have nothing to lose. The acid will only be used on my back and chest, my face have always been clear, although very oily at times (before Accutane). Therefore no scarring to be taken care of.

After struggling against acne since i was 18 (now 24) I contacted my doctor who sent me to a professional. Accutance was prescribed which i stayed on for 9months, 80mg a day. The accutane literally saved my life, I couldnt wear anything white on my upper body, and my face was really oily in my T-zone. I finisjhed the Tane in early june, and I am now totally clear with no active acne.

So lets try to do something with these scars who really bugs me. I prefer to keep my t-shirt on during the summer because of the scarring.

I have just ordered some glycolic acid (60%) online. Decided to go that high because the back and chest have tougher skin that the face.

Hopefully I can begin my first peeling in one week. Pictures will be uploaded in order to keep progress on the scarring.

Pardon my English, I am from Scandinavia :)

Feel free to ask if something is unclear.
