  1. I totally get what you are feeling. We are our own worst critics, but if it were me, your scarring is way too mild to take any invasive risks. Don't think I would ever notice your scars in real life.
  2. Is this scarring or hyperpigmentation? I can't seem to figure out what is going on with my forehead. Some days/time of day my forehead looks perfect, while other times it looks like it might be a bunch of indents. Even with the flashlight method, sometimes it looks like scarring, other times the skin looks relatively flat. If they are indents they are quite shallow (you can see what is a chicken pox scar over my left eye which isn't that deep, so the scarring is shallow). I just don't know wheth
  3. Now I don't have severe scarring by any means, but I do have what I would consider noticeable shallow scarring (apparently no one else sees it). I'm not posting any links because there are so many articles that state this 95% number of acne patients develop some form of scarring (simple google search confirms this). Do you guys believe it is this high of a percentage? I find it very hard to believe that this many people would have acne scars, but at the same time, I guess we are our own worst cr
  4. I'm not saying it's horrible, but there are a lot of very shallow scars. Not sure if I should bother doing anything invasive or if I should just keep them. I know acne scars do not heal on their own generally, but could this type of shallow scarring fill in over the years?
  5. What type of scars are these and what type of treatment is best? Would peels work?
  6. Bump. How bad is it and what is my best course of treatment?
  7. Hi, First post here, but have been around the website for the past little while. I struggled from acne late (19-22 was worst) and still get the occasional breakout. My problem isn't the occasional pimples that I get now, it is the scarring on my forehead. I am so depressed over it. Everyone tells me that they don't see anything, but it feels as though they are lying so they do not hurt my feelings. What kind of treatments would these scars require? Do they get better with time? I am 24 turning
