    What to do with this (pic)?

    Retin A has two main reasons for prescribing it: acne and wrinkles. There are off-label uses which are perfectly legal, such as scar reformation. It is a prescription drug. You'd go to your doctor (dermatologist or regular doc) to get a prescription for it. It changes the skin structure and encourages exfoliation as well. It thins the outer layer of skin and plumps up the inner layer (EDITED!). Retin A also encourages collagen reformation. Over six months of use, you WILL see your scars lessen. Take pictures over the journey so you can see the changes. Once your skin starts changing, it will be hard to see the small incremental changes that happen over time, so the record will help prove to yourself that you are seeing improvement. Retinoids alone will not likely cure your rolling scars, but you could also check into subcision and dermal fillers. Those are remarkable for rolling scars. TCA CROSS is remarkable for ice pick scars, but you don't seem to have any ice pick scars. (Count your blessings!) Good luck! Something WILL work for you. A combo of all the products you see in my signature is helping me. Do not give up hope, as those scars you have can be treated.
