Acne Scars? 17 Jan 2012 17:04 #26839

Having itchy hands, I like popping my zits time to time (eww right, i know) And this bad habit which I'm trying to quit, have gotten me a couple acne scars on my cheeks

Any recommended products to treat such scars?

I heard that using pimple cream before you pop a zit would reduce the visibility of acne scars, but I have not actually tried using any products that would totally remove the scars Maybe you can try visiting a dermatologist?

I would suggest Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator.
There’s a CorrectTone Technology that combines proven anti-aging and anti-spot ingredients.
It also reduces uneven skin tone.
I have been using it for two months, i can see my red spots getting lighter.

Try bio oil. I have heard them around with good reviews. Even in magazine.

I'm using that now on this scar I have on my right cheek. Been using it for about a week odd. Not quite seeing any results yet, maybe it takes a bit more time. Will update again. I heard a lot of positive reviews about it as well.

Yes please do so!
I've heard mixed reviews about this but if it works for you then I would most likely try since it's really affordable too

Try using NuTeen's Acne & Pimples Away Sleeping Mask if you are not willing to spend so much on skincare.
The effects has been really good so far from my personal experience
Cheers,
Vanessa

Are your scares severe?
You can look for a dermatologist. Used to have really dry skin and commercial products are not of much help in improving the condition. Thus turned to a dermatologist, everything improved a lot.
My brother used to have really serious acne and scarring problems (red spots on his face), after a year of usage of products, his skin condition totally improved so much that currently there is no red spot, and scarring problem had reduced a lot.

We went to this "NIKS Maple WEST Clinic". You can try google search and its quite well known. ((:

hope this helps (:
