Hey Angel,

I have the same form of scarring as you.

I have a few more than fifteen.

Mine are a lot older than yours and I have been using copper-peptides with exfoliation cream and also weekly glcolic peels.

I am having good results but you should know it is a very slow process.

I would recommend this course of treatment.

I have tried all the other stuff (except for silicone sheets) and nothing else has given results as good as this.

Hopefully I will be able to eradicate these scars over time.

If you are a younger person and your scars are fairly new then you should have even more success than me.

Wish you luck.

Hi all. I'm only 17 and I've had acne scars on my shoulders for about 2 years now. I have more than 15 scars as well, I don't even want to try to count how many acne scars I have on my shoulders and back, I would probably lose count, it's that bad. Probably in the 100's. These acne scars kill my self-esteem. I just started trying the vinegar treatment yesterday, and hopefully I'll see results with that. I'm on accutane, and I have brown skin, so I don't think it's a good idea for me to actually get any clinical treatments until after I finish my accutane course. Any advice on what I should do after I finish my accutane course, or what would be ok to do during the course? I know that I am not supposed to have any microdermabrasions or anything or the sort.

Thank you all,
