Lol. I think what @ChildhoodDreams is trying to say is, your scars are v minor. I can't even see them. Don't obsess over this minor issue, and go live your life. Congrats on ending your battle with acne.

Thanks guys, maybe the picture did not do it justice, I still have scars and  i'm very self-conscious about them.I cant even look in the mirror every morning and I envy with people with normal skin.Maybe I'm my worst critic, I need to change my mindset.This thing haunts my mind for so long and I'm still young =(((.

@ChildhoodDreams LOL

@TuongNguyen97  In all fairness it is tough to see in the lighting.  To me it looks like you may have some ice picks scars.  The gold standard for icepicks is TCA cross.  Try to see if you can get some photos in angle lighting where it really accentuates the true depth/size of the scar.

  Thanks @thewhisp ^^.After a little research I think I have icepicks too.Unfortunately, in my area there is no dermatologist that perform TCA cross. I've read here that i can perform the technique on my own.There's just one deep icepick and 8 of not-so deep ones, plus 1 long icepick.I don't know if that one has lengthened over time? Does it mean it is healing :3.I' ll try to take another pic :3

Thankssss a lot <3 <3 .Though my scars are not that minor i will change my attitude towards myself , at the same time improving on their appearance, maybe I'll take a look on TCA cross, further some chemical peels to help even out my skin.This is a long journey

OK, I applied TCA cross on several of my scars.First day nothing happens, I expected it to be very red and pink but it did not.Now after 30 hours I feel a burning sensation in my skin, it is so intense. The wound is starting to swollen up a bit, scars are being widened.Is this normal ?
