Dermatologist Dr. Kruti's  Response
hello
thanks for using healthcare magic.
i will be glad to be of assistance.

i hope now you have not been picking up on any of the acne lesions as that will lead to deep scars and pigmentation.
if there are active lesions, they also need to be treated.

first of all creams that you can apply.

you need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen , creams daily.

cleanse your face with cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.

sunscreen needs to be used daily , once every 4 hrs.

creams would be:-

clindamycin gel on the active acne lesions in the morning and retinoic acid 0.025% cream at night on the entire face.

retinoic acid cream needs to be applied only at night, start with coming it for 2 hours and then gradually increase the time interval to keep it overnight.

this will cause priming of skin. after 10 days, you can start peels. chemical peels with glycolic acid will be effective. these peels will reduce the black marks , for this you will need to go to a dermatologist.

the method depends on the facilities available with the dermatologist.

however meanwhile you could start the creams.

now coming to the scarring:- your skin is scarring because that is the natural history of how acne progresses and then resolves.

this is how it resolves.

you need not worry as there is treatment for it. but if you stop applying the creams on active lesions, they will leave behind deeper scars.


this will ensure treatment of the scars permanently.


DERMAROLLER is used for treating Acne Scars,
its an instrument with small sharp microneedles which act on acne scars.

if your dermatologist does these procedures, he can do them for you.

they cause transient redness for a day and then you can go back to work, you could get it done on the weekend. its an office procedure which takes around 30 minutes.



it will take a while but surely everything will clear up.

hope i have answered all your queries.

if you have any further queries, i will be glad to be of assistance.
