Acne spot refuses to go for 2 years

Recommended Posts

I've had this post-cystic acne spot for a good 2.5 years on my right cheek. It came up when I was on a 13 month course of accutane and since then, has only ever so slightly lessened in redness. I've seen 2 dermatologists, both of which said I need to be patient and wait it out - great help ...
I've seen a plastic surgeon; she said there were two options - getting the cyst surgically removed but that would create a larger scar (so obviously a no no), or just wait it out. 

I've had my first appointment for microdermabrasion ... helped a lot with the overall texture on my face, but not so much with the redness.

I'm at a loss.. I don't know what the hell is meant to help speed up the process. I've also tried a dermascar gel (an Australian brand I believe) which hasn't done a drastic job either.

Any advice on products or peels or anything that would help speed up the process?
