As healing occurs, new tissues fill in that are different than normal and less elastic. This is a scar. Over time it will fade in color but always be there. ...Read more

Hi Doc! What's a good facial cleanser to help remove red acne marks/ post infammatory hyperpigmentation marks. The marks have been a problem. Thanks?

You're an adult now and I'm sorry that you acne wasn't managed aggressively when you were younger. Take charge of its care until it remits on its own. If benzoyl peroxide isn' enough, your physician can Rx stronger medicine. ...Read more
