"Post"moderate acne Scars/Hyperpigmentation?

Recommended Posts


I'm a 17 year old Male who's had mild-moderate acne for the past 4 years or so. I was prescribed Epiduo originally but didn't take the time to get used to it following dry/flaky skin from the BP so I never got a proper regime going. I also picked my pimples a lot which probably hasn't helped in the slightest. Anyway, a few months ago I finally got a regime going with BP that's working well in stopping spots from forming but I'm left with quite un-clear/red looking skin that doesn't seem to be fading. I was wondering what options I have to reduce marks and clear the skin. I was thinking microdermabrasion could help but I'm not sure...
Any help/advice is much appreciated (see pics)
Thank you.

As long as you are using acne skin products your face will stay red,this is chemical reaction from the topicals.so only stopping using the topicals,soaps etc will allow your skin to normalise.

i try to not use anything bar moisturiser but i take anti biotics.
