17 year old, severe acne, scars and redness

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if my acne is severe enough that I could go to a dermatologist for the first time and be put on accutane right away.

other than that question, does anyone know how to fade scars and redness?

you may want to see a dermatologist and get some sort of UV treatment and then Micodermabrasion.  It isn't easy to fade scars, and there's no point in attempting to without treating the cause (acne) first.

Accutane is used as a last resort. While looking at your pictures I notice one thing, oil. Get the oiliness under control first. You're also a 17 year old male going through puberty, so a lot of your acne is going to be hormonal. Get rid of some of the "extra" testosterone in your system, a good way to do that is by consuming a good amount of omega 3's. More than anything a lot of the acne you have will fade with time, I know people hate hearing that, but with hormonal acne, it's true.
