Healing scars: When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow and bringing healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How to get rid of acne scars under $100. I have acne scars and have been trying to get rid of it so bad but i don't know what is good for a 15 year old boy! i looked up acid treatment and laser treatment but is unsure about which to pick.
Unfortunately : Unfortunately you will not be able to get rid of acne scars for that amount. The gold standard for acne scar improvement is fractional laser done multiple times - and that is usuallly between $500 to $800 per session. If your scars are merely dark areas, you should use a good sunblock all the time and try a few of the dark spot correctors (neutrogena is one) any over the counter treatment will only be minimally effective in correcting discoloration, but if a big issue is dark marks, anything that helps is a plus. Red marks will eventually resolve on their own if you don't "worry" the skin by picking or using abrasive scrubs. As for actual scarring that causes a shadow because of the depth, your only solution lies in a medical office. The big factor to control is your acne to prevent further scarring. If you are still breaking out, most dermatology visits will fall under insurance - as will the topical and oral medications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Laser is better: Laser resurfacing is better to improve acne scarring. I recommend the fraxel laser.

The fraxel works well for acne scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles and photoaging. Fraxel can be used on most skin types, and all over the face and body. The fraxel laser is fda approved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

None of them: Nothing you can do on your own is going to touch your acne scars. If you want them managed and less visible, you can get with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can offer microsurgery, fillers, or laser Rx. I'm sorry you got the scars in the first place and that you've been frustrated with products that offer misleading claims. ...Read more
