    Re: Pitted scar help.....

    i have also been trying to find a solution for the few scars i have but mine are like little hole scars!! but to get back to topic, mederma is really good for scars!! i have used it and it works great! i dont use it anymore because i decided to get a obaji blue peel. but i definetly suggest you try it! youll be really happy with the results! i recommend using on a scar for at least 1-2 weeks and for the larger scars use for about 3 weeks. i used it on a scar that i had and it was gone in one week. but to obtain maximum results keep using. the only drawback is it tends to itch somewhat(nothing unbearable though)! it wont cause breakouts either! **hope you try it**

    On the website where I got the sample kit for exfol serum and cp serum--it had information of scars and how it helps... I do not want to post the site because i am not allowed, but it is helpful!

    Re: Pitted scar help.....

    Hi everyone

    I too am trying to get rid of pitted scars which I've had for years. I've just started using Exfol and Super CP serums although I know it's going to be a slow process.

    I noticed in one of the other threads that someone said they use a glycolic acid peel which is meant to be good when used in conjuction with exfol and cp serums.

    Sorry to ask a stupid question but are there any side effects from this peel? And does your skin start flaking? Basically - is it safe to be seen in public when you've done a glycolic peel or do you have to hide away?! And how well does it work on pitted scars?

    I'm sorry if these questions have been answered before elsewhere but I haven't been able to get anything specific and I can't find the post where I first spotted glycolic acid peels (I think that's what it's called).

    Thanks.

    The fasted way to help pitted scars is to get really deep peels. The only problem is that there really expensive and there’s a lot of down time.

    Re: Pitted scar help.....

    Deep peels from the salon or at home peels? About how much down-time?

    Re: Pitted scar help.....

    I've given up. I'm going for the dermabrasion surgery this winter. It's 4000 grand and I really can't afford it, but it will be worth it if my depression goes away over my bad acne scars. The problem is I just had a horrible!! cystic pimple(underneath the skin) and it was huge. I still have a big scar from one that I had a year and a half ago. It's really noticeable. Is there anything I can do for the crater on my face? I know i'm supposed to do something with the collagen, so i'm taking multi-vitamins for Vitamin B and E. So if you have an answer please post it here [ removed ]. Thanks!
