  • I'm interested in knowing this too. I have terrible scars on my face from acne and I'm still getting zits as an adult. The only ideas I've come up with is cover-up or microdermabrasion...which is out of my budget.

  • Well, UNFORTUNATELY I have had a major problem with acne scars. Here is something that I found out that surprised me. One of the contributing factors are stress. That's right ladies! Fortunately, I had started using a product that came with our business and didn't realize the scarring would be and issue. So I asked someone about it and they told me to use the Serum Intensive and it really worked. I had tried everything so if you would like to know what the product is just send me a message.

  • No product on the market will take them away. They are scars, so no matter what product companies say a cream isn't going to repair the damage. There are laser treatments that you can do to reduce the appearance of scars, but they are expensive and you need several treatments. So even lasers aren't a quick fix. Your best bet is to invest some money is some good makeup. Mac make up is really great. Make sure you let the attendant at the Mac counter do the makeup tests on you so you get exactly what you need. There are different make ups for day and night etc.. that will make scars invisible. It is expensive, but cheaper in the long run than buying creams and things that don't work or going under the laser.
