Does anyone know of a product that will help fade the discolouration caused by acne scarring. My chin has so many spots on it, that I have to hide it with heavy duty concealer. If I don't people ask what happened to me. Any suggestions?

Decleor Prolagene Gel is supposed to be good for scarring. Check it out in the EDS Store.

Hi,
I sound like a broken record here am sure but the Obagi system got rid of all my discolorations from scarring.

If you can stand the initial peeling and redness after a month the payoff is well worth it.

From what i've heard at home peels are good for this type of problem , using alpha hydroxy and salycilic (Sage Advice have some at www.sageadv.com...although i also heard they can be a a little painful...to each there own i guess!

On another thread titled "hyperpigmentation" I shared the following...

For hyperpigmentation I highly recommend the Q-switched Ruby laser. I'm 37 yrs. old now, but back when I was in my teens, I was known to squeeze those annoying pimples and as a result, an area on both my right and left cheek had post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that never cleared up. I used Retin-a, hydroquinone, porcelana, Apple cider vinegar, salicylic acid, and various topicals. Nothing got rid of this hyperpigmentation that seemed deeply imbedded over the years. I daily used concealer to lighten them. Over this summer, I read an article about laser treatments that don't cut the skin, but treats hyperpigmentation. And since I tend to keloid, I needed something done that didn't cut skin. So, I asked my dermatologist about it, and lo and behold, he said that he has the Q-switched ruby laser which takes care of hyperpigmentation. He walked me over to the nurse who was available to do this procedure during my visit, so I didn't have to schedule another appointment. Gotta love that. I didn't need any numbing done to my cheeks. I had to wear those special glasses to protect my eyes, and the said I would feel pulses like a rubber band smacking my cheeks. It wasn't bad, and well worth it for the results I was hoping to attain. At first, right after the laser treatment the areas on my cheeks looked frosty white, then it faded into a bruised look. There was no cutting involved. All I had to do is apply vaseline 2 times daily to the area for 7 days. Then the area would form a thin scab and it would fall off. That thin scab fell off exactly 7 days after treatment, and I had white, new skin underneath. My skin is actually naturally tan, but the nurse told me that the pigment of my skin will return, and to give it 6 months for the full effect making sure to always wear sunblock. What a difference. I only wish that I had the nurse do the other 3 spots I had from recent post-acne hyperpigmentation. But I knew those would definately fade in several weeks since I didn't damage those areas by profusely squeezing the pimples there. I hope this helps somebody. If my insurance doesn't cover it, then the nurse told me it'll cost me $200. After all the topicals I've used over the years that didn't work, it was well worth it.

The YAG laser also works the same way.

I hope this helps.

I find that using a good exfoliate is great for lessening the dark marks, though it doesn't remove them 100%.

Also follow up with a nutrient rich moisturiser or serum.
