First Healing Tip

Prescription Retin-A - This can be an excellent choice and much less expensive than lasers or chemical peels.

But, there can be some initial discomfort and side-effects - which usually subside after the first 3-6 months.

However, If you can't afford a prescription, consider trying retinol serums or creams which are derived from the vitamin A molecule. 

For best results - look for high potency retinol creams ( 0.6 -0.9%) is best for post acne scaring.

While not as strong as prescription Retin-A, retinols work slowly to help shed upper cell layers and can not only improve the look of the scar, but can help soften fine lines and discoloration.

Second Healing Tip

Hydroxy Acids - can help "unglue" dead skin cells allowing them to exfoliated easier. This helps reveal smoother, tighter skin underneath.

For best results consider applying a pH balanced hydroxy acid serum for less irritation. And if possible look for a higher percentage serum like 30% esthetician grade hydroxy acid serum.

Warning: Do not use this if you are also using Retin-A, Retinols, or benzoyl peroxide products. The serum is powerful. If you're taking any acne medication, please check with your doctor before using anything else.
