Scars
 
I have pretty bad acne scars on my chin and forehead. I've gotten rid of most of the actual pimples, but the reddish-brown scars remain, and it makes it look like I'm still broken out. I've been using Clinique Acne Solutions Night Gel and Total Turnaround, but those haven't taken the scars away. Any suggestions?

The same thing happened to me I used hydroquione 4% and it took about 2 months if insurance does not cover it, the cost is $100.00 some insurances do cover but most do not.

Not really a chemical peel is about $100 and you need more then one for a chemical peel to work I had a light peel and used the hydroquione I was supposed to have another light peel but have not done so yet. I know for a fact that peels cost more then $100 as my plastic surgeon is my best friends husband.
