Possible to remove flat scars with acid?

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Question 1:

Can some kind of acid, which I can use myself at home, remove flat scars?

Question 2:

What are the risks associated with the use of peels? Is it safe to do it on your own? Is it securely?

Question 3:

If you have tried some kind of "mild peel" yourself, what was your experience? Does it work on shallow scars?

Thanks a lot

I've basically flatten superfical scars with repeated freezes and peels.It took years and they're still not perfect but probably the best I will ever get.I have really shown no progress for the last several years but I can live with the way I look.I really have no choice.I also had a raised scar from a motorcycle accident 25 years ago.I went to a plastic surgeon and he cut the scar out and restitched.He did a great job and its a flat scar and has been so for over 20 years.I tried to get him to give me a dermabrasion a few years later but he refused.He said the risk/reward wasn't there.To make a long story short, there is NO way to return flat scars to normal skin.I've tried for years and years with no luck.

You can look at the older post's and spend hours reading about peels.I'm really not crazy about giving advice because I'm not qualified.What was mild for me will probably be strong for you.

I wish you luck,
