    acne scars on neck!!

    Does anyone out there have acne scars on the neck area. I have several scars that have been there for 3 years!! They don't seem to fade like the ones on my face and they are kind of white instead of brownish. I tried microdermabrasion on them and they won't budge!My derm said the skin on your neck is much more delicate and scars last MUCH longer there. I really feel self-conscious about them because I can't cover them up with makeup like you can on your face and when I try I just get makeup all over my clothes. I'm so sick of these scars!!! Any ideas from anyone in the same predicament?

    i also have a few of the same kind of scars on my neck--esp. right under my chin line. some were from acne--but most--and they look EXACTLY the same, are from chicken pox--which i had at age 29. honestly, right now my face and back are my main concern--but i do (not everyday) put retin-a cream on those marks--

    ask your derm if she thinks retin-a might help you.
