Try scar cream for pregnant women…ummm.mederma, I think. I’ve used it before and it’s really good.

@beachbrideamy: mederma is pretty good if they are newer scars. it is very very very slow. if you’re not opposed to it, microdermabrasion helps with hyperpigmentation from acne…and so do photofacials. Both are pretty quick…you can even do it on your lunch break from work! I did a combo of both and it definitely helped my hyperpigmentation from previous acne problem. Just check out a licensed medical spa and do a consult and they’ll let you know whether it will work for the results you’re looking for. Good luck!

I agree that Mederma takes way too long.  I don’t have any great suggestions though.

@jduck: That isn’t too expensive, I have tried a few that were are $70 per bottle and didn’t really get results I wanted.

@MissAsB – heehee, you’re right. I guess I’m speaking from my sad little graduate student standpoint!

I’m using:

http://www.clinique.com/templates/products/spp/index.tmpl?ngextredir=1&CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY21368&PRODUCT_ID=PROD12867

It works but it’s not super noticeable. I’ve been using it for a little over 1 week~ i notice my brown spots fading a little.  It’s important to use SPF30+ every morning or else it’ll make your skin darker/your scars darker, that is.

September wedding – you have some time to do some treatments/facials that help, but if you want and have the money, dermatologist/laser is really your only “STAT” solution.

Or you can spend the money on an awesome MUA who can cover it up with concealer perfectly. 🙂

I’ve been using the Dermalogica C-12 Concentrate for my scars.  I got it from my esthetician and so far it has helped with red/dark scars from my break outs.

I would say first see your dermo. Mine just gave me a fabulous cream that made my small breakouts disappear and may acne scars are fading faster than ever. If theres no time for that try Nadinola fading cream. It is a ‘bleaching’ cream, but it has done nothing but good for my face for the last 2 months.

see the dermatologist!!!!!  they can do quick laser work or peel or a dermabrasion!!  insurance doesn’t cover the cosmetic work, but it can cover your visit 🙂
