Where do I start?! Scars and adult acne.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just found this wonderful site full of information whilst I have been searching for something to get rid of the scarring on my face.
I always had good skin, even when a teenager, hit 30 and it's been awful since. (3 years)
i have been to the drs so many times and they don't seem interested.
I have taken a long course of antibiotics and a number of different prescribed creams, I've tried tea tree, clearasil all the usual stuff. Changed contraception, stopped contraception completely, nothing is working. It's really starting to get me down.
I want my clear skin back with no horrible marks.
where do I start? I want to get rid of the scar marks mainly. It's 90% on my face and 10% on my back in the top section.
I have been looking at microdermabrasion although I'm not sure it will be strong enough to make an improvement.
please bombard me with what products I need and what treatment will help me. I've had enough!
Thank you x
Have included 2 pics of my face as it is now, doesn't effect my forehead.

Thank you for your reply. I have posted in the scar forum as well, I think! Hopefully someone will have some good suggestions.
I am pleased they look mild, to me they look awful!
thanks again!

Those are really mild!
if only you seen some of us other adults faces.

sudocrem seems to work well for me on red marks/patches, apply a thin layers over the affected area at night, wash off in the morning and reapply in the day if u can blend it in well.
