How to remove acne marks?

Specialist work: A dermatologist can make the scars less apparent using a laser, filler, or dermabrasion. Before you do this, consider whether this is what you really want. If you are a woman, most men don't care but you'll probably get a good result. If you are a man, look at the hollywood stars who have kept their acne marks to look tougher (jet li, charlie sheen, stephen segal, many others.). ...Read more

Can I remove acne marks by applying whitening lotion?

Can I remove acne marks by applying whitening lotion?

Acne Scars: Yes. Avoid hydroquinone cremes. Cortisone helps. There are other ingredients to look for over-the-counter that help lighten hyperpigmentation. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (aka bearberry extract), and even vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to look for in over-the-counter lightening creams. ...Read more

How can I remove acne marks from my face? I had severe acne but that has been treated by duac gel. Now I just have the marks.

Derm consult: Very glad you got treated for the basic disease. Brown marks will fade over time. Leave them alone. It's your decision whether to keep the scars. A dermatologist can laser, abrade, fill and/or operate them. Before you decide to do this, notice how many hollywood stars have kept their scars in order to look "tough". Hoping you get what you want. Cheers. ...Read more

How can I remove acne marks and stop pimples from coming back? I have acne pupules and oily skin.

How can I remove acne marks and stop pimples from coming back? I have acne pupules and oily skin.

Manage your acne: You're almost an adult. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician will need to add prescription-strength Rx. Keep doing this until your acne remits on its own. There is nothing you can do to speed its self-curing. Dark spots can be bleached but I'd advise you not to try; depressed scars need specialist intervention. ...Read more

Can you tell me is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

Can you tell me is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

Terrible idea: Please forgive my frankness. Betamethasone can make your skin atrophy and it won't help at all. Red and brown post-acne marks need to fade on their own. The acute lesions will probably be made worse by the betamethasone. Scientific acne rx starts with benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, and if this does not clear you, getting prescription-strength rx from your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

I was wondering is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

I was wondering is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

Terrible idea: The redness and hyperpigmentation that follow acne lesions are basically something that you need to allow to fade. Betamethasone will make your new lesions worse and make you more prone to acne, and suppress you ability to fight the microbes; it can also cause atrophy of your face, disfiguring you. Plus, you're using a prescription drug improperly. Your physician can advise you on acne control. ...Read more

I wanted to know is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

I wanted to know is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

Terrible idea: Betamethasone is a steroid that can make your skin atrophy. Neomycin is an antibiotic for microbes that are already gone. Your red acne marks are new blood vessels repairing the damage -- don't try to remove them. Brown pigmented lesions are best left alone or if you must, try a skin bleach. Please get with your physician if your acne is not under control. Best wishes. ...Read more

How to remove hyperpigmentation/acne marks?

Hydroquinone: This is your best bleach. Don't overdo it. The marks eventually fade on their own, and they probably look worse to you than they do to anyone else. Especially, I'm sorry your acne wasn't treated properly in the first place. Best wishes. ...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?

Basically you can't: I'm sorry. These are going to need to resolve on their own. A hydroquinone bleach may help the brown spots, but nothing will help with the red spots. 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

How can I remove marks from acne?

Difficult - But...: Acne scars are one of the most difficult things to treat in plastic surgery. If the skin characteristics are optimal, the best approach is to use laser resurfacing to "polish" the skin. There is downtime and limited risk to laser resurfacing and it will typically take multiple treatments to get "some" improvement (no magic wand - but probably the best thing out there. Surgery/fillers less optimal. ...Read more
