In brief: Scars, not so fast

If you have true scars there are not many if any otc products that provide a lasting result.
Face cleansers are best suited to control / minimize active acne vs correct scarring.

In brief: Cetaphil plain

Cetaphil is an excellent balanced soap for facial cleansing purposes but will do little to treat the acne.
In this instance, most patients prefer deep cleansers off applied with a mechanical device to accomplish a deep cleaning and exfoliate simultaneously. These devices often combine an salicylic acid medication.W.
