What Is A Good Way To Get Rid Of Acne And Acne Scars
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

What's the best facial wash and shower foam to get rid of acne and prevent it? And what is good for acne scar? I tried so many and nothing works.
Laser is better: Laser resurfacing is better to improve acne scarring. I recommend the fraxel laser. Four treatments are usually required, but the results will be significantly better that with chemical peeling. 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
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 5 more doctor answers

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
I'm starting to get some on my chest and neck. I also have acne scars. Any good ideas to get rid of these?
Yes, Neck and Back: Acne can occur anywhere there are sebaceous glands (oil glands) in the skin. Web md is a great resource to learn more about acne. Skin hygiene with soap and water followed by benzol peroxide or 2% salicylic acid products are over the counter options. An evaluation by a dermatologist can help develop a long term plan. Resistant acne can also be treated with antibiotics and some laser therapy. ...Read more
Acne Scars: Typically your dermatologist will prescribe different topical medications and possibly oral medications depending on the severity of your acne. In order to reduce the appearance of scars, a topical retinoid may be prescribed to help increase the rate of cell turn over. It is extremely important to protect your skin from the sun as this can make acne scars look worse. ...Read more
Rx: I start with topical clindamycin, with a retinoic acid derivative if there are many blackheads and benzoyl peroxide if not and the person can stand it. I add a systemic antibiotic if needed; dermatologists have bigger guns that are a bit dangerous but worth it. Nothing will remove scars, but dermatologists have lasers and surgery to make them fade if that is what you wish; some actors like theirs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
