Doc I have an oily face and some red acne scars on my cheeks what will I do to reduce the scars and lessen the redness of it? Thanks

This is serious. Your acne is so severe that you've had to have your scars treated with a laser -- yet you do not list any medications. You're sixteen years old and you can take the initiative with your treatment. Insist that your physician offer you something that will clear you -- a systemic antibiotic will be required and if you are offered isotretinoin, give it very serious consideration despite the scares.
Pimple appearance. The most important thing to remember is to avoid the urge to pick at your skin! Keep your skin clean and moisturized with hyoallergenic products, and apply benzoyl peroxide as directed on the package. A cool compress on red inflamed areas can help reduce the appearance. Avoiding sun exposure should also help prevent scarring and discoloration.

I've read good reviews about olive oil helping acne scars and redness on the face, and I want to use it but im not sure if I should? Do you recommend?

Try it. It may relieve the redness like many other things can, and will probably only hide the scars during the time it's in place -- it is shiny and make them harder to see. I'm really sorry you weren't properly treated for acne in the first place -- any physician has the means to clear it or refer severe cases to those who can. A dermatologist can use filler or other rx to make the scars less visible. Read more...
Myth but use if help. Many of my patients swear by the benefits of olive or bio-oil and so i generally don't dissuade them but there is very little science to support its use. It is probably the massage, (which we know helps scars) that is used to apply the oil, which is actually providing the improvements observed. Massage with any clean oil 3-4 times a day. Silicon gel trips are morel likely to improve the scar. Read more...
Too much. Treat the acne and the scars will become progressively less evident. Don't expect much from olive oil, silicone, or massage. Absorica is a more expensive way to take isotretinoin. You are at a very low dose. Presumably your derm plans to increase it to 80mg. You will want to stop the doxycycline and Retin A soon. Assuming you are just beginning Absorica, in a few months you will be much better. Read more...
