I have pothole/pock acne scars on the two sides of my face

Customer Question

Hi, I have pothole/pock mark acne scars on the two sides of my face (biggest concern) and uneven skin tone from sun damage/skin redness (from cystic acne which doesn't flare up anymore with any postules). I am just learning how to take care of my face and how do I fill in my scars? and what is the best cheapest treatment preferably at home I could use? retinol has only smoothed the skin. scrubs and exfoliation including microderm do nothing to the scars, and i read chemical peels wouldn't do it either.

Also, to touch it is smooth. I think due to cystic acne, excess skin and fine face hair (as women have) has grown over the marks. but it appears purplish red and pocked.

you have tried all that can be done at home

you should see a cosmetic dermatologist

about skin resurfacing laser treatment which can get rid of scar tissue and help smooth your scars on your face.
