How to remove surface scars? Like right on the top layer of skin?
Hi I've been reading alot about scars here and it seems like the scars that are mostly mentioned are the pitted kind. Well I have scars on my back from acne, small ones, but alot of them. They're on the top layer of my skin, like right on the surface...
I've reading here about all the bad experiences with microdermabrasion and other similar procedures but those are from people with the pitted/shallow scars...would any of those procedures work for my surface scars? Or anything else? Is anyone in the same situation? Any help would be nice.
if its on the top layer of your skin, just ride it out and let nature take its course. We shed and renew our top layer of skin every month or so. so just give it a month or two and u'll see the marks diminishing. if u had acne on ur back, the last thing u want to do is dermabrasion to aggravate things. trust me, so many times i've gone too greedy or over-perfect i end up messing up my skin even more. big regrets, big regrets. i've learned it the hard way, and i don't think you have to follow my path if u just live with these top-layer deep scars for a few months. good luck.
I don't think Neosporin would work like that. It's for like when you get a cut and its in the healing phase, Neosporin would REDUCE the severity of the oncoming scar but not for old ones.
I just don't know what to do. It's like I finally cured all this acne (thanks to Accutane)and now there's all these lil scars on my back. The ones on my face aren't as bad, you can't really see em...they're fine, but I can't say the same for my back.
I was just hopin that one of these cosmetic procedures you can do would work because the scars are like...if not RIGHT ON the surface, like 1 layer underneath...(Which is why I don't think they'll just fade in a few months like BROWN spots...probably more like years). I dunno what I'm gonna do. I think I'll wait til this fall and see how they are and then get a consulation with some guy who does microdermabrasion or whatever. If anyone else has got some other ideas or if you're in the same situation, please say so. Thanks...
