How can I get rid of acne pigmentation?

Manage the acne. All acne can be managed today; if 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Individual acne pigmentation lesions may take up to a few months to fade; if you use a hydroquinone bleach, do it sparingly. The vast majority of folks do not care whether you have some acne pigmentation; make sure this is what you really want to do. Best wishes.

After acne I've got some scars of pigmentations on my face. So how can I get rid of scars? Please suggest some medicines.

Moisturize/sunscreen. Use an oil-free moisturizer and a good sunscreen, EVERY day! (I like the facial moisturizers with SPF 15 built in) Use additional sunscreen when you are out in the sun- reapply frequently. Wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin. The main key to allowing the skin to heal itself is to avoid damaging it further! Read more...

Are there any home remedies to get rid of post inflammatory pigmentation due to acne?

Hyperpigmentation. Post inlfammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderosis may not respond well to hydroquinone (hq). Vitamin k oxides are purported to have some effect but I am not convinced. Lasers have mixed results and have occasionally caused worsening due to increased inflammation. I suggest trying test spots first. Use of "peel and bleach" creams (hq +retina +steroid) may be effective but require strict sunblock. Read more...

How to get rid of hyper-pigmentation or acne scarring if you will?

Can only Improve. You cannot "erase" scars. Poor scars can be improved through the following methods: 1) scar massage 2) silicone sheeting (a kind of silicone tape you where over the scar) 3) steroid injections 4) laser treatment (helps remove coloring) 5) scar revision (removing the scar and starting over). Consult with a plastic surgeon to find out which combination of these would best work for you. Read more...

What is the best foods to get rid or help acne, acne scarring, and hyper pigmentation from acne?

Wrong question. Diet isn't the key to acne. It's a non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related disease that needs to be managed medically until it remits on its own. You're already got scars as a result of your disease being neglected. Please get serious about medical treatment -- it should be avaiable anywhere. Use topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated until a physician can see you. Read more...

Do chemical peels get rid of light acne indentations (rolling scars) and hipper pigmentation? If so which one/s at which %?

Yes- check with Derm. Depending upon your skin type and the amount of scarring/hyperpigmentation, peels may be of some help. There are many modalities used to treat both conditions. The vipeel is one nice peel that addresses both concerns. Fractionated laser can help resurface. Hydroquinones, kojic acid, ; arbutin products can help lighten and brighten. There are many optioons to discuss. Be sure to wear sunscreen. Read more...
Depends on the peel. Skin contour irregularities likely will require resurfacing. Treatments may include heavier peeling agents such as tca exceeding 35% or even phenol peels which can be more effective still. Treatments should be administered by a specialist familiar with these acids and their strengths. Dermabrasion should not be ruled out as an alternative. Individual skin pigmentation also needs consideration too! Read more...
