Now in my 30s and starting to scar mildly

Recommended Posts

Guest

I only suffer from mild acne now which I'm able to keep under control with AHA and BHA products. However, I am starting to indent scar now if I get a spot, which didn't happen before.

Is it my age? I've been suffering spots for about 20 years or so, so it's nothing new! It's not bothering me as I have more important things to worry about - I'm just curious!

I think it may be age. Our skin's elasticity and collagen decrease over time. Same thing happened to me. I thought I didn't have any scars, or minimal scars, until my mid-30's when more started to become visible.

Retinoids, such as Retin-A or Tazorac, seem to help mine not be as noticeable. Although they are definitely noticeable. Aging sucks.

I noticed that too in my 40's. I've found that using tretinoin cream has helped with scarring. Makes wrinkles go away but also pumps up collagen production which helps the skin to overcome scarring. You might want to try it. It's stronger than AHA's but it'll clear you up if you use it long eneough. Just be aware that it takes a very long time to work but then it's incredible! People say I look at least 15 years younger and my skin is looking almost all smooth now. Of course for a guy these aren't big issues but I think it pertains to scarring too!
