Hypertrophic/Raised Acne Scars

Recommended Posts

I have these on my chin and they've been there for a year and a half or so. The doctor I spoke to put me on antibiotics and Vitamin B, and some medicated cream that I didn't use because it caused acne. It was obvious that he was pretty clueless, because he wasn't even able to tell me what it was, so I quit going to him and quit taking the medicines (except the Vit B, which I still take).

It seems now that I'm not going to be able to get good treatment here, where I live, so I have to be content with 'home' remedies like the vinegar method. While this might work, I'm interested in faster and more reliable treatments.

Also, does anyone know why I couldn't/shouldn't use a Dermaroller on the affected area? It doesn't make much sense that only pitted scars should benefit by it.

Any information at all would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
