Lemon Acne Scars Before And After
Ive been getting chemical peels for acne scars. I got 2 light enzym peels and 1 extra strength enzyme peel. After how many peels will the scars heal?
Scars aren't removed: by peels. You can do them until the cows come home, and not see much difference other than exfoliation. So that's an expensive alternative that has been marketed to you. Cosmetic lasers that rebuild collagen provide longer lasting results, as scarring is occurring from the damaged collagen fibers that have created crater-like effects from contraction. Treat the cause, not the hype. ...Read more

Does lemon juice help in vanishing acne scars and blackheads completely? I heard, it's effective. How much time will it take?
It won't help: You're almost a grown-up and I hope this is the worst bit of misinformation that you fall for. If you have a lot of blackheads with your acne, your best first choice is a topical retinoic acid derivative. If you don't have this handy, topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best friend. If this does not clear you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who will add a prescription Rx. ...Read more
It won't work: Let them fade naturally and do what you must to keep new lesions from forming. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, you are old enough to make an appointment with a competent physician for prescription-strength remedies. Acne is a non-lifestyle-related, serious, chronic disease that's always manageable, and you deserve effective treatment, not made-up internet stuff. ...Read more

It : It should be of benefit. Without the benefit of an exam to determine the extent and depth of the scarring it is difficult to give a more accurate assessment.

Not strong enough: It might be good for tea, but for true acne scars, it will unlikely do much for it. Acne scars come in several "flavors." there are ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars and atrophic scars. Acne scars are difficult to treat. There is no "magic bullet." many treatments can "improve" the flatness of the scar, and/or texture of the skin, but it will not make your skin flawless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't be done: Depressed scars can only be managed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon with a laser, microsurgery or filler. Hyperpigmented scars may respond to a hydroquinone bleach but you risk disfiguring yourself. Red marks where lesions are healing can't be made to fade and they need to be red because they're new vessels promoting healing. Best is to treat your acne aggressively & prevent new lesions. ...Read more
