Hello

Thanks for the query

There have been some reports in the past about sperm being used to clear marks over the skin however i prefer Kojic acid cream and also glycolic peels to reduce marks over the skin. I have seen good results with this on my patients. I suggest you to meet a dermatologist a prescription.


I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Please see a dermatologist before buying any creams. Glycolic peels are started with low percentage like 10% and then go higher with every visit. It has to be done under supervision of a dermatologist. Please do not attempt to do it at home

Kojic acid is not bad, it is a natural product. Glycolic peels have a burning effect this is because it peels away layer of skin. Make sure to apply sun screen and prevent sun exposure upto 24 hours after the peels. Also avoid applying soap to the face after the peel.
Please make sure to meet a dermatologist before applying Kojic acid or glycolic peels

I hope I was of help
