A 22-year-old female asked:

Is my skin scarred since i have not seen any improvement after 1 year? i over exfoliated my nose and cheeks using an eyebrow razor. my skin didnt bleed, but it got super thin in those areas from scraping at it so hard. will it take years to restore?

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a dermatologist. Wish you good health!
