What is the Best Acne Scar Removal?

Okay my fellow Sugars... I have a question for you. A month or so ago I got two pimples on my cheek (which is odd I don't get them very often)... well they are now technically gone but the marks are still there. Is there any cream I can use to get rid of them??? They are driving me nuts. Thanks!

Sorry for the delay TCHAN, I was away last week. I use the cleanser, the lotion ans then the post acne lightening serum. I really like their products.

i used neutrogena's acne mark fading peel ($12ish)and could tell a difference immediately-granted my skin is pale and the marks were reddish in color...but I've had good luck with porcelana fade cream ($5ish) as well. good luck and let us know what works for you!

galpal I just looked on Sephora's website. It looks like it could be a good brand, are there are products you use? Which one is the scar serum you use, it looks like there are 2 (acne spot treatment or post acne post lightening gel).

put a glob of neosporin with a band-aid over it before bed & leave it on all night

Murad has a serum to fade acne scars/discolorations. Sephora carries it and it is amazing.

I live in the UK at the moment, so I get it from Boots- but most chemists stock it. It's just under £9 for 60ml, but a little goes a long way. It's also meant to be really good for stretch marks and uneven skin tone. I've seen some reviews on 'Make-up alley' for Bio-oil if anyone's interested.

where can we get bio oil?

I've just started to use Bio-oil. I've been using it now for just over a week and it's slowly starting to fade the red blemishes left on my cheeks from past acne outbreaks.

i was just about to post on this group and ask the very same question..i don't mind the pimples themselves but what i really dread are the dark scars they leave forever...i have used the hydroquinine formula that hellena mentions and retin-a which has helped but is very harsh..anyone else have anything that has worked for them?

I've found that Clinique's Acne Solutions Emergency Gel-Lotion works really well to get rid of the remaining bump and redness.

...I guess it depends on what color the old-zit-mark is: is it brownish or reddish? If it's brownish, your best bet is to use a 2% hydroquinone formula, and a gentle cleanser with AHAs until the mark fades (make sure you have no sensitivities or allergies to these products first). If the mark is a little bit red, try a cream with niacinimide or kojic acid....however, pay CLOSE attention to the expiration dates of products containing these two ingredients; they tend to "spoil' quickly because they're naturally derived... If all else fails, hit the dermatologist for some Tri-Luma cream. 8 weeks of that will leave you fresh faced and glowing
