Which is now the top product or home remedy to fade acne scars?

You can't: Anybody offering you something to remove acne scars is scamming you. Only a dermatologist can do this, using microsurgery, lasers, fillers, and/or abrasion. I'm sorry the scars happened in the first place -- all acne is treatable nowadays. Some men -- tommy lee jones, jet li, casey pachall (photo) have kept their scars for the "tough guy" look.

The dark spots can likely be treated with ipl or at least mitigated with a "lightening" agent like hydroquinone. Kind regards, mark johnson. ...Read more

Over the counter skin preparations probably won't give you desired results. ...Read more
