Treatments for this type of scarring. Pics included

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Here are some photos of my cheek.

What kind of treatment would you recommend?

I am currently on retin-a just for red marks, I know it won't improve the scarring.

I am clueless when it comes to deciding what type of scarring it is, and possible treatments, any help would be great

Thanks

Actually, retin-a is supposed to improve scarring but very slowly. The quality of these pics isn't very good to fully observe your scarring well enough, but I'd say they look like rolling scars. Research dermarolling-this is a very promising procedure which you could eventually do yourself with right and adequate information before hand.

Hey, I have the exact same scarring. They are hard to capture on a photo.

They are basically just shallow red marks in normal light but when u look up closely they are slightly indented.
