    Thank you for sharing your feelings with us all. Acne is a struggle mentally and physically. I wish there was a magic pill that was safe and made everyone have beautiful skin. I'm not sure why skin is so connected to self esteem, but it is. Meditation and prayers are what keeps me going. My prayers go out to everyone in this struggle.

    @Fraeith Hi there you have a few things going on Rolling scars, sharp box cars, Ice picks, discoloration. I can't tell if there is active acne but if so this needs to be under control before you start treatment or your skin can become worse. Several sessions of subcision 3-8 sessions. Most of the scars look superficial so filler may not be appropriate as it can cause bumps. Several sessions of tca cross for the smaller icepicks. CO2 laser to the boxcars (especially the border wa

    I see mostly boxcars and icepick scars, and some mild rolling scars. I think TCA/Phenol cross would benefit you most, and is cost effective. Subcision will help break up any fibrotic strands underneath the scars as well, particularly any rolling. More expensive option is RF microneedling with Infini/Genius.

    @ExclusiveSet Hi there, I see lots of icepicks - scarred pores which need tca cross, some rolling scars which need many sessions of subcision with some filler, some boxcars which need rf needling and co2 laser if you need a boost or you can do fraxel 1927nm full density which will work on the large pores as well (energy devices are optional). Hyperpigmentation I would do vascular laser or picosure/picoway which is great for your skin type and makes collagen. You can finish off with a few chemica

    This saved me!

    I've always had amazing skin and then BOOM!  One spot after another started appearing on my face. These were under the skin, un-poppable painful little things and were leaving marks EVERYWHERE. I felt depressed, upset, hormonal and would not leave the house without makeup on. I went to a dermatologist who put me on Erythromycin and doxycycine and lymecycline for 7 months at a time and they weren't making any difference. After trying absolutely everything on the market from drug store to Mario Ba

    Chemical Peels to Treat Acne Scars

    Chemical peels have been a lifesaver! I used them to treat hyperpigmentation leftover from pimples and small icepick scars. I don't think this would get rid of acne. I went to a esthetician to do mine. Please please please don't buy your own and do it yourself! You are giving yourself a controlled chemical burn and if you don't know what you're doing (which you don't) you can burn your face! It's not worth saving some money. The at home peels don't work as well either so you're wasting money. Yo

    Thanks for all the replies. I've been using the AHA for almost 3 weeks now and things have gotten a lot better however I did cut back on using it. The first week I used it every night, 1/2 moisturizer and 1/2 AHA. The first day there was a lot of redness (looked like sunburn) and that stayed for 2 days but eventually went down however by the end of the first week I had a lot more red spots on my face than when I started the AHA!!! This could have just been my skin purging as some people say

    Leaves skin clear, and heals redness. It's not pricey, and it works to keep you skin clear, I have had severe acne ever since I was nine, and it's finally cleared after seven years of searching for the right solution. It takes about two months for me(As I had severe acne, not moderate or light), and it my acne fade every time I use this, with warm water and a clean cotton-like towel, recommended product!
