Angry Getting Rid Of Scars!!!!!!!!!

I have a lot of acne scars and I hav a scar thats really annoying by my lips. I got it rubbing a pumice stone too hard on it and It got all scratched up and started to get red and bleeding. Then next thing you know it got all dark and I guess its a scar now. Its been a little over a week and i guess it got a bit lighter. I know its eventually gonna dissapear or at least close to it, but I just wanted to speed up the process. Well, any suggestions???

You'd have to get it from your dermatologist....but I've had some success with bleaching creams. They can be expensive, so I usually just get a sample from my doctor. Claripel bleaching cream has worked on some of my scars. I had two bad ones that completely faded after three months of using claripel faithfully each day. It's less harsh than other bleaching creams that I've tried and it has spf in it. I have one bad one again from an injection that I got impatient with - Claripel only faded that one a little after 2 1/2 months...so I'm trying Tri-Luma now (it seems to be helping a little). But you need to put sunscreen and moisturizer on after using it (since it doesn't have spf). I'd try one of those creams.

I don't think you're talkin' about a scar so much as just healing (since it hasn't been on your face that long) I'd suggest a little bit of polysporin or neosporin to stop any nasty bacteria that could reinfect the cut and cause it to scar. That will also help it to heal faster.
