Scarring

I have some scarring on both face and back from years of acne in my younger days – any suggestions on how to minimise these?

    Dermal rollers, microdermabrasion with vit c treatment. Silicone gel sheets for back and body scarring. Groupon have alot of deals for microdermabrasion you will need several sessions. Any deeper scarring i would look into laser options. There are dermal filler options as well as a company in Australia who do a kit called Microskin this lasts about a week and you get a consultation to get your exact skin colour. Can get another colour to match your fave spray tan also. This helps for special occasions. It is affordable.

    I`ve heard that vitamin E cream does help – usually available from the local pharmacy.

    Could try Rosehip oil as well. Try a derma therapy facial as well as this goes deep into your pores and helps the skin renew itself from inside out

    Yea, ive found bio oil to be good too…i use it on a facial scar, it`s really lightened and softened it.

    Maybe as a last resort use IPL.

    I`ve used pure vitamin E oil on scars and that`s helped. Not too sure if it will do the same for acne scars.
