New prescription - 2% clindamycin/Neostrata

Recommended Posts

My current regime:

Mornings: Wash face, let it dry then apply Benzaclin. Let that settle for 15-20 minutes then apply moisturizer and non-comodogenic makeup.

Night: Wash fash, let it dry then apply Retin A cream. (I don't moisturize at night but my skin is super flaky so as of yesterday I started applying Jojoba oil to the entire face - it helped this morning).

Anyway my issue is that the scarring/indentation of my acne scars are not going away. Luckily I have not been breaking out in a few months now so my doctor was comfortable to tell me to eliminate the Benzaclin and swap it with 2% clindamycin in Neostrata (something.... can't understand his writing). He said this is a milder version of a glycolic peel and should help with the scarring and marks. Anyone used this? Thoughts on this? He said to use this in the mornings and continue with the Retin-A cream at night.

Any ideas/suggestions/experiences that someone would like to share?

My other option is to go for some sort of cosmetic peels to help with the indenting/scarring. My wedding is in July and I need to help myself asap.

I'm attaching my photos so you guys get a sense of what's going on.
