Brief Answer:
Use adapalene and clindamycin

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query and photograph.

I can see few acne along with the scar on your face.
The scars are superficial and can be controlled with creams.

You can use a combination of Adapalene and Clindamycin gel daily in night.

Try this for a month.
Use Glycolic acid based face wash.

This combination works well.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

: Hi, My name is selvaraj and i m form chennai, India. I have this acne scar for almost 10 years. I ve tried many products and i ve also tried many dermatologists, nothing really improved or cured my black spots. Now my brother bought me a product called meladerm from UK. To be honest i don t trust this product but even though I searched online about this product and i found good reviews about Meladerm, so i want to use it. I just want to know weather its gonna end my 10year pain or is it gonna increase further?. To be clear i ve tried all the treatments(peels, retin a, laser etc..) except surgery. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Age: 26 Skin type: sensitive and oily. Condition: Severe block spots(Acne scars) all over the face, no Acne.

Hi, I have acne as well as acne scars. Acne I have been able to control to some extent with medication, however due to my keloidal tendency i cannot go in for any treatments for my scars like dermabrasion. After consulting several dermatologists I was told that my scars are too deep to be removed through creams alone. Is laser treatment an option, and how effective and safe is it?
