Question on scars

Recommended Posts

Hi all..its my first post here..I hope I can get some help from you. Please find a picture of my scars attached for reference.

I have these weird discoloration from past acne..its almost looks like my skin is dirty...i had acne about 2.5 years ago and I dont have anymore, but I feel really conscious about these scars.

I have mild rolling scars, but the discoloration bothers me the most. I am using Sundey Riley Good genes and UFO oil, but I am not seeing much improvement.

Can you please suggest me something. Will IPL help?

Awaiting your response.

@Bonnie789 Yes this is not scarring it's PIH or discoloration post acne. Called hyperpigmentation. You can do vbl if you wish, or there are lasers for this like picosure or q-switch. It takes a few. Also use tretinorin/differin/retin-a nightly with a cream having the ingredients licorice and kojic acid to work on the pigment. Some do glycolic acid peels as well.

Wearing sunscreen will help, use it the way you are taught on the regimen, just make sure it is not pore blocking. Glycolic acid also helps. I also had great success with diy tumeric face masks (just don't use too much because that will stain your face)
