Treating Scars Whilst "Being Clear"

Recommended Posts

It seems to be the general consencus that you need to be clear of active acne prior to commencing any sort of scar treatment. I assume this is because scar treatment could interfere with the healing process of active acne. If you are basically clear from an effective and ongoing acne treatment (such as Dan's regimen) but are still usually dealing with 1 or 2 pimples at any given time is it then okay to treat your scarring or not?

It's up to you -- just so long as you are aware that your acne can worsen due to the scar treatments, which it seems you are. In addition, if you are currently on an acne regimen, adding a scar treatment regimen or treatment could be very irritating to your skin.
