hi..Thanks for your query
Melaglow is a cream prescribed to treat the post inflammatory hyperigmentation left due to a result of acne.the earlier you treat them ,the better are the chances of them lightening. old spots they may take more time than the fresh ones.
Once the number of active pimples have come down, I am sure you will be able to identify the scars which remain and start applying Melaglow on them.Even though you have not done that medicine so far, you can always begin that now.Do this so that together with the pimples, the scars also start fading and the facial skin overall looks much clearer.
You must always use a broad spectrum sunscreen with or without the above measures to prevent the spots from darkening by exposure to UV light daily..
take care!
