scars(w pics)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys i just want to know what kind of acne scar treatment would be effective for me?

i have attached 2 pics below.


I've been looking at Lactic Acid and Glycolic acid... TCA is kind of harsh, but worth a look.


Testimonials: http://www.makeupartistschoice.com/pages/testimonials.html <- There are some pics. I looked through them, it's quite persuasive.

I emailed them to see if I could get an idea of what peel to use, if they reply, I'll let you know if they do the Q/A thing.

Those are some deep scars so a peel won't help you too much. In fact I have scars like that. You'll need something that can dig deep into the skin and help promote collagen. Consult your derm and see what type of laser procedure they can do for you.

needling and dermaroller, I have scars very similar to those, some I have are deeper and so far they've responded well to both procedures. TCA Cross may work, I've done it a few times, but it's risky... very easy to make it worse if your hand isn't steady.

I would say, if you go to work or school everyday, don't use TCA, UNLESS you don't care that you have burn spots on your temples.

Otherwise, I recommend Needling - using high gauge, 30 - 40 gauge diabetic lancets, daily, plus numbing cream (lanacane, EMLA, etc) and Copper Peptides or Terproline.

Also buy a dermaroller.
