Confused, Help! W/pics

Recommended Posts

ok so i have these red spots on my temple area, i am confused because when i look in the mirror at a certain angle they appear to look like holes but they mostly always look like just marks. My question is if they were holes shouldnt they look like holes all the time not just at an exact angle? Can it be the redness just making them appear as holes?post-357446-0-36874100-1386366500.png

Maybe they are shallow, and the light has to be a certain way to make them look like they are indented. Does it feel smooth?

In some lighting and at some angles, my skin can actually look smooth (it's not smooth).

They seem indented atrophic scars. They're usually thinner in depth, depressed and crater in appearance. Yours do have that hole like appearance which you are talking about and that's totally okay. It's a type of scarring. It depends how you're viewing it. Angle and light difference matter. Are you working on treating them?

youi can incorporate a weekly peel that is a bit stronger, but follow directions! look to something like lactic acid, there are users here so search lactic acid peels

start slow, like at 20 or 30% strength

I had facial scars for which i used Invicible scars. But i'm not quite sure whether it may work on deep indentations or not. For me, it worked pretty well since, they were flat scars and all i needed was to smoothen out my skin as quickly as possible. Vitamin E, however is a great healer for deep as well light marks.

yourboy1, so what is your plan going forward now? Do you plan to do a stronger peel? Please post back with pics of the results if you decide to. Weekly pics would be awesome.

well i havent done any peels yet but i am sure looking into it since nothing else has really worked on my red marks. Im just a little scared because it would be a at home peel and i dont want my face getting worst than it is already.
