Alpha Hydroxy Acid For Acne Scars?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have been on accutane for about 4 months now and I have 2 left. I had pretty bad breakouts on my cheeks and its gone, but I have red/dark marks as leftovers! This is really annoying.

Will alpha hydroxy acid remove the red marks without doing any damage to the skin?

It takes time to fade, but any exfoliation will help speed the process... including alpha hydroxy acid.

Thanks! But how much does it speed the process?

And there's no damage to the skin like pigmentation or something?

AHA is great at fading redmarks and refreshing the skin in general. It speeds up the exfoliation process. It takes about 1 month to notice a difference. My AHA moisturizer says that it exoliates the skin 4x faster.
