How Can I Get Rid Of This? Please Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I've been on 2 courses of accutane over the past year and a half, and its pretty much done its job. My acne has gone, however I'm left with some pretty terrible red marks. These marks were also from the beginning of the course, so they've pretty much been there for around a year and half and have only slightly faded. One is on the left side of my cheek, and the other is on the right side. I have no idea what to do, any suggestions would be appreciated greatly!

Here are some pictures:

I suggest using bio-oil or lucas' pawpaw ointment and gently smooth it into the areas that have been scarred from your previous acne.

I've never used jojoba oil before but, I've heard it's good. Some cheap home remedies is to place olive oil onto your scars or to use honey.

I hope I helped!! Acne scars take time to heal so be patient and persevere.

Goodluck! surprised.gif

May be worth paying your Dermatologist another visit. There are options like injecting material into scars to flatten them out or dermabrasion to help with the appearance of scars.
