Post Benzoyl Peroxide slowing down the fading of acne scars

I've heard quite a few people saying that using BP can make acne scars fade a lot slower than normal. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this? If so, what makes that happen? I'd appreciate any help! Thanks

A lot of the things you'll read on this board are false.

People who use these boards, do so for one reason: they're not clear.

You shouldn't expect to get any positive information or experiences from these boards, why? Because people who use them aren't clear.

I'm using BP along with Retin-A and Doxycycline and my scars are fading perfectly.

Think about it.

The people saying that benzoyl peroxide is making their scars fade slower may just be sensitive to benzoyl peroxide and it is making their scars appear more irritated than they should be. Just an idea, hope it helps. And everyone's different so i guess i wouldn't know all about this for sure. My personal experience with benzoyl peroxide is, yes, it can make my skin a little irritated (if i'm sunburnt or if i put on too much), but it hasn't slowed the healing of any scars. Good luck

um anthor...I have been clear for 2 years I would not generalize that which you do not know.
BP can be slower due to it being more drying and scars heal better with moisture..that is one of the reasons it is killing the good bacteria along with the bad and slows the process of healing.
if the pimple has cleared you really should try to not put anything on it or a moisturizing healing lotion..if your skin can handle without breakout.
