How to get rid of acne scars under $100. I have acne scars and have been trying to get rid of it so bad but i don't know what is good for a 15 year old boy! i looked up acid treatment and laser treatment but is unsure about which to pick.

Unfortunately : Unfortunately you will not be able to get rid of acne scars for that amount. The gold standard for acne scar improvement is fractional laser done multiple times - and that is usuallly between $500 to $800 per session. If your scars are merely dark areas, you should use a good sunblock all the time and try a few of the dark spot correctors (neutrogena is one) any over the counter treatment will only be minimally effective in correcting discoloration, but if a big issue is dark marks, anything that helps is a plus. Red marks will eventually resolve on their own if you don't "worry" the skin by picking or using abrasive scrubs. As for actual scarring that causes a shadow because of the depth, your only solution lies in a medical office. The big factor to control is your acne to prevent further scarring. If you are still breaking out, most dermatology visits will fall under insurance - as will the topical and oral medications. ...Read more
