Does the scar gel remove scars caused by acne ?!

Help, not remove: Micro needling can help with scars (adding PRP helps even more), fractionated lasers are better, but more expensive. A less invasive (but slower results) process would be laser genesis to the scars. If they are depressed you can use needle subcision or fillers to improve the appearance. Improving your acne will prevent further scars, see your doctor for possible treatments antibiotics or creams ...Read more

What is the best scar gel on keloid scars? I fell on my chin and I have a bad scar.

Acne: It is very hard not to touch/squeeze/abuse pimples. Toothpaste probably didn't make things worse.

Is Mederma scar gel or hexilak silicone gel better for keliod scars caused ?

Is Mederma scar gel or hexilak silicone gel better for keliod scars caused  ?

Keloid scar options: Keloids are scars that grow outside the boundaries of the original scar and usually require more agressive treatment such as surgery and injections. Scars that are thick or red but not keoids can be treated with various topicals, my recommendation being scar gel from skinmedica. Most scars improve over time without special treatment, and taping them for 6 weeks after surgery helps more than creams. ...Read more
