Not quite sure whether it is acne/acne scar/blackheads or something else - any advise please?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I’m new to the community. I’m having acne or related on my phase. I have attached couple of pictures but not quite sure what they are.

Those appears to be dark spots in my phase formed when I unnecessarily touched pimples and eventually they turned into like this.

I never used any scrubs or facial cleaners until last month. After having my first facial, folks advised me that these can’t be removed with any facial or micro treatments instead I have to use scrub and cleaners appropriately and these will go away eventually but mah take couple of years.

some told me that these are moles. But I know that these formed from pimples.

Now I’m confused whether these are acne/scene scars/blackheads/dark spots

Any further advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Black dots seem like moles to me you can get laser to remove it. The one near your eye is a acne scar seems indented if iys recently itll probably heal.


Thank you so much for your response. The one on nose was diagnosed during facial and is now healing compared to the picture that I posted earlier.

Regarding those dark spots or moles, what kind of laser treatment would be useful?

I wouldnt know anything about what to know, but im sure if you go to a derm theyll know they usually laser the skin like they do with tattoos small dot and the skin should repair itself.

Usually an Nd:Yag pulsed laser is used to treat moles, tattoos, and other dark spots. Some can be removed in just one treatment session, others may take longer, your dermatologist can advise you.

Thank you. I searched on Google on that laser treatment that you mentioned and looks promising. I’m going to contact dermatologist next week to determine laser options.

those three main dark spots on my face formed from pimple, so not quite sure whether these are moles or not.
