    What procedure for Slightly Pitted Scars???

    Hi,

    I would like to know which procedure (or product) people have found to actually diminish shallow pitted scars. I would like responses from people who have actually had the procedure or tried the product, so they can give their personal experiences. For example, microderms, chemical peels etc. Thanks!

    I used silkia camellia oil to diminish my deeply pitted acne scars. My scars were very deep and so I think that's the reason why it took so long - over a year. Right now my scars are only about 5% visible. Since your scars are shallow, it will be sooner, but I think it may still take a couple of months. So if you have the patience to wait out a couple of months, it's definitely a great solution - effective and cheap compared to many other products/procedures.

    that is an oil though...it didn't make your acne worse because of clogging pores??

    No, it didn't break me out or cause any clogged pores. I didn't put the oil over the acne, just the scars. Camellia oil is very close to our natural sebum (oil produced by our skin) and can be easily absorbed. Maybe that's why I didn't have any problems using it.
