Scab formed after i picked at clogged pore. Scar on face fell off. Now red mark there has been present for  month. Ways to get rid of it?

You can also do laser therapy or filler therapy, within one to three sessions, laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase new collagen formation to help fill in acne scars. Wear plenty of sunscreen, sun makes the scars worse. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more
