Pitted/shallow Scars

Recommended Posts

Im currently dealing with pitted/shallow acne scars on my cheek which im not a fan of but what is really bothering me is the discoloration that the scars have as if it wasnt bad enough that they are indented scars. Now im wandering does this hyperpigmentation in the indented scars fade? Will they fade with use of hydroquinone?

Try to avoid them at all cost. I got a lot more of these than you do. If the scar is deep enough it wont fade. You should use something on it ASAP. The icepick scars wont go. You can only get dermatologists to improve them. If the discoloration is new then you can use some product to even out the skintone but it's best to avoid the sun when you do.

I have one scare that it deeper than the rest and its darker than my normal skin tone. Its been there for some time now but I'm now noticing it has gotten darker will it fade eventually? If not whats the best procedure to improve this scars? TCA?

I used this stuff called meladerm but it's a little expensive. It helped to lighten the marks. If it doesn't get rid of the marks completely, it speeds up the fading or at least stops them getting darker. These products with acid can be dangerous if you use them in the summer time. It's best to use them in the winter. If you use them during the summer time then you should use sunscreen.
