Will tea tree oil help fade post acne blemish marks?

Will  tea tree oil help fade post acne blemish marks?

No: No scar can be completely removed. Tree oil is a mild antibiotic and has a limited effect against mild acne in the acute stage, and is less irritating than other over-the-counter preparations.

These are not actually scars and Retin-A can help improve them over the course of many months. ...Read more

Does contratubex gel good to make acne marks fadeaway ?

Does contratubex gel good to make acne marks fadeaway ?

Worthless junk: This is a mix of allantoin (the major component of bird droppings), onion, and heparin. Acne marks fade only with time. A depigmenting agent may remove the brown but you're more likely just to make a mess. Nothing you can do on your own helps the scars. I'm sorry you ended up like this. Topical benzoyl peroxide and perhaps a prescription-strength Rx may be your best friends if you've still got it. ...Read more
