Scars still red after 20 years. what do ?

Recommended Posts

Went on accutane when I was 18, and 2 decades later, the rolling scars on my cheeks are still redder than the surrounding skin.

If I pinch the red scars between my nails, the normal skin color fills it up the spot temporarily. So it must be that the skin is too thin.

What can I do to restore normal skin color for these scars?

Subcision and filler Many treatments. 

Scars treatment is customized. If you wish to post a picture with directional lighting (flashlight), I can try to best help. 

Reds are treated with vascular laser.

I know I need subscision and $$$$$ worth of treatment. But the redness Is the issue I'm talking about here.

You think vbeam would get rid of the pink spots?

@link626 You need picosure (builds collagen too) my friend or some vascular laser to deal with PIE. Use tretinorin nightly and the pca gel for hyperpigmentation on amazon. 

Asian/Ethnic skin is prone to hyperpigmentation issues.
