"orange peel" skin texture - any advise?

Although my skin FEELs real smooth and soft, it doesn't LOOK smooth or soft. My skin has that "orange peel" texture - it is only obvious in certain lighting and it really look horrible. Does anyone here know what I can do to reduce this effect? I am currently going for gycolic peels and will start on micro derm soon but I really don't know whether these will help much. And I am not too keen on any invasive treatment like dermabrasion. My derm says that my scaring is superficial. Any advise is greatly appreciated especially if you have the same problem too - thanks!

You may want to talk to your derm about Obagi. This will definately improve your skin.

Is the orange peel look on your face or the rest of the body? And, is the orange peel look caused by many small dark scars giving the appearance of a dimpled complexion or is it actually dimpled?

Does your derm think this superficial scarring will fade on it's own? sometimes it'll subside on its own over time.

Veggie girl - the orange peel look is just on my face. It's definately dimpled. The red marks have basically faded away that you can't really see them unless you are really close to me which is good news right....however, I now noticed that the dimpled look is more obvious now that the red marks have faded away. I should say too that I have some rolling scars and a couple of box cars on my cheeks - I think causing the orange peel look?

Boston girl - my derm wasn't too impressed with my acne scars in that he thought it was "mild" and that it would fade away. I know the red marks will fade away and I am not really bothered by them. But I do know that I DO definately have scars which WILL NOT fade away in time.
