I am 35 years old Indian so I have a brown skin but my skin is not an average Indian skin, as in I have a little fairer skin compared to an average Indian Skin. I have been having AcneScars since my Teens. I have a very, very sensitive skin. I also have Mild Rosacea which keeps aggrevating on and off. Like I have days when it is very intense and days when it is absolutely not visible. I have had almost all sorts of treatments so far to elevate the scars on my cheeks from Dermabrasion to Micro-Dermabrasion to a one time Glycolic Acid Peel. None of those has helped the appearance of scars. The Dermabrasion that I did was just for once which the Doctor said in the first sitting he could not do it more deep for various reasons and then I did not feel like doing it again because I am a working Man and my priorities in life don’t allow me for that Kind of Downtime. So the Traditional Dermabrasion is out of question. Micro-Dermabrasion I did quite a few sessions but that really didn’t give any desired results it was just a waste of time and money. So I am kind of not in favour of Micro-Dermabrasion. I also did a Glycolic Acid peel once, just once and the results were horrible it gave a post peel permanent hyper-pigmentation on my forehead (Only on my Forehead, where as it was applied all over my face) which till date I am struggling to get off with and there after I have not repeated it because I don’t know if my skin will tolerate it or not? I have not tried Lasers and from what I understand is it is more suited for aging skin, fine wrinkles and it is a expensive and on going affair may take several sessions before anything is visible so cant just keep doing it on and on…
I want to ask you guys what could be the best treatment for my kind of scars, which I would say are Shallow to Medium Scars couple of them actually Deep. A thought that again touches my mind is, maybe I should give peel another try and this time should think about TCA Peel as it goes further deep but I am mighty scared of things going horrible wrong as it did with my first ever experience of Glycolic Peel. If I were to think about a Peel mainly to make my skin even and to look it more brighter which peel should I consider ? Glycolic, TCA don’t know if I should go for Phenol ?
On the same boat as you are. I've heard a lot good about this cream invicible scars. I consulted their website and the ingredients that are present are pretty much impressive. What was more impressive was the list of ingredients that are not present i.e. hydroquinone, vitamin E or alike. I'm really looking forward to try it but would still appreciate experiences of people with this product
Apply lemon juice to your dark spots. Squeeze the juice from a lemon and dab a bit of it onto your dark spots. Wait for the juice to dry on your skin before rinsing it off with warm water. The citric acid in the lemon juice will lighten the pigmentation in the dark spots over time, according to the American Chronicle.
Exfoliate your skin with baking soda. Often times, a version of baking soda is used in cosmetic microdermabrasion treatments. You can give yourself a mini microdermabrasion treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with the two teaspoons of filtered water. Then gently rub the mixture on your acne scar for sixty seconds then rinse it off.
After exfoliating your skin with baking soda, massage a pea-sized amount of olive oil onto your face. Acne scaring can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and suppleness. The moisturizing nutrients in the olive oil will penetrate the skin to deeply moisturize the skin and soften the skin’s texture.
