Acne Scars

Hi,

My girl friend has acne scars on her face. Is there anything she can do to elimiated/lessen these scars?  Do the collegen therapy (needling) products work?  I have seen many at home products that claim to reduce the scaring, but I have also heard that you should only have these done by a dermatologist.  She is a little insecure about this, but I don't see it as a problem.  I just want her to be happy with her own skin :)!

Hi there!

She could also try creams/ ointments containing tretinoin, hydroquinone, arbutin, azelaic acid, niacinamid etc. It is advisable to use these at night. If these do not seem to help, you may consider seeing a dermatologist for alternative management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I've been trying salderma copper peptide cream for scar reduction and, although it's probably not actually possible :p ..I swear I can already see results. Your friend might want to do some research on copper peptides and maybe give them a try!!
