Sharing my experience, need advice on scar treatments

Recommended Posts

Okay so I had pretty bad acne, still have flare-ups once in a while with huge pus-filled pimples. This was the list of things I was on.

Differin - cleared up at first and then made me breakout

Retin-A - helped in remodeling of the skin a bit, reduced redness, pimples went away faster. But made my skin oilier, scars more apparent and very very dry

Oxy - made skin tingle, very red, left me with very dark red marks.

Olay regenerist - Made skin red and somewhat irritated

Yup so now, I am using fruit of the earth aloe vera gel, will update if it gets better but it sure is doing something good to my skin. I am also on doxycycline and I do a papaya mask every alternate day

Just wondering if I should try needling for scars or go for fraxel laser. My scars are appearing to be more shallow and stretched with aloe vera. Care to share your experiences? :D
