X's Q & A

Q&A: After bad acne reaction to makeup, what do you recommend for scar removal?

Dear Marie, I wish it was easy to remove scars. It depends upon their character and depth. If they are very deep, they may need to be surgically removed. If more superficial, a type of deep resurfacing will improve them markedly and, if very superficial, a light treatment such as microdermabrasion performed a few times will make them much better. I would suggest that you visit with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who offers all of the options in order to determine what is best for you.

I would wait at least 6 months before I would attempt any surgical endeavor. It is difficult to evaluate over the internet. A trip to a plastic surgeon/dermatologist is in order.
