I had these about 2 years ago, and unfortunately the ONLY thing that worked for me was.... (wait for it)...TIME. I tried ACV, vitamin E, aloe vera, steaming, Mederma, and about 10 more things I forgot by now. They faded slowly but surely, and about 1.5 years later, my skin doesn't look as perfect as before, but the marks are nonexistent. G'luck- oh and USE SUNSCREEN.

I agree with the above poster. Plus exfoliating regularly also helps. I'm still slowly waiting for my acne scars to fade.

HOWEVER, I have heard many reviews on Paul and Joe Beaute Whitening Serum and while it whitens (which I'm indifferent to) it also lightens your scars. I haven't had a chance to try it because THEY REFUSE to ship to Canada. Hopefully on my trip to Japan I can pick some up.

erm..

well where do you have the scars?

i heard that exfoliating your body (you know what koreans do every month in the sauna) is bad for you if you do it like every week or so.. idk that's what i heard but it may be wrong.

i have scars only on my body and i use bio-oil and cocoa butter lotion (:

i prefer the lotion because it smells like chocolate and the bio-oil is oily and smells kinda funkayyy

Just to reiterate the above posters, there isn't a lot you can do besides exfoliating, chemically or manually, to hasten your skin cell turnover and waiting for time to do its job. Those red marks may take 3-6 months or even a year to fade completely, on its own or assisted. Make sure to always wear sunscreen to prevent the red marks from darkening.

Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, and i believe Beta Hydroxy Acid(Salicylic Acid).

Those are good for acne scars.

Take some Daily Vitamins. Drink lots of water and get lots of Vitamin C from Orange Juice. it should brighten up the skin.

Maybe you can try Silkia Oil. I don't think they sell it in regular stores but I've read about people using it to fill out really old scars on their faces. From what I remember it takes like a year to work though. I haven't tried it though.

I used Bio-oil to remove them and it worked (: Though you have to apply it on everyday.

Bio-oil isn't noticeable and it works as a moisturizer also.

If they are light, peels will work and they're great for your skin all around too.

Otherwise, the is the only method that seems to work is this:

It's less than $700 versus the $10K+ (you're going to need various treatments) you can spend on laser resurfacing. If you browse the forums, you can find other people who are doing it + their results after each time. It hasn't been endorsed by any company and the guy knows what he's talking about so I find him trustworthy. I can't speak for everyone though.

you can try Clinique's Dark Spot Corrector. The reviews thus far have been pretty good.

I've been using Clinique's Dark Spot Corrector for 3-4 days now, and it does lighten up my scars a bit. The product seems promising =)

I am serious, it works. This stuff is only sold from licensed skin care professionals.

I use these two on my back. Before i used this, I went to sephora and asked if there are any solutions for my back, and they were like " OH .. you can't get rid of the scars and hyper pigmentation." I was like WTF. Then i went to this skincare place and they sold these to me. The pigmentation on my back lightens after 1 week use, tremendously.
