POST ACNE SCARRING DIFFICULTIES

Whats Up All,

Josh here, I am an acne survivor :dance: if you will. No longer do i break out with pimples on a pattern like basis maybe 1 or 2 every 2-3 months if that. Now being a survivor of acne from harsh facial treatment from my mom when i was younger (she use to scrub my face w/a rag and a bar of soap) to break outs all throughout junior high and highschool and some in college, I have been left with some dark marks where pimples use to be which distinguish my damaged skin. I know the skin on my face that grew back a lil lumpy giving those areas a slight cratering effect can only be fixed with laser surgery but what of the dark marks or scarring that makes the cratering stand out more? What could i do to minimize or totally disappear the dark areas? Thanks I m ALL EARS :think:

Josh

Sounds like you have some deep hyperpigmentation since those marks have been there for a long time. Microdermabrasion may encourage that top layer of skin to shed and help your color look more even. Have you consulted a derm about the marks?

Hi Zen Garden,

thanks for the response :clap: . I have consulted a derm about the marks and i even asked them about doing microderm abrasion and I was told that it would nt be a good outcome because of keyloiding, a characteristic of african american skin. What d u think?
