Question: Can I get rid of pimple scars?
While acne or pimple scars may never fully disappear, there are treatments available, ranging from topical or injections to surgery or lasers. Before deciding which option is best for you, always consult your doctor.

Natural or prescription-strength options include, topical creams, vinegar, tea tree oil and pressure bandages. Topical creams can be prescribed by a doctor or found over-the-counter. They usually contain ingredients designed to help reduce inflammation. Pressure bandages help to smooth out scar tissue over several months of application. Tea tree oil and vinegar help to make skin look smoother by encouraging your skin’s natural cell renewal process.

Chemical peels, laser treatments or surgery are also options for reducing the appearance of acne scars, filling scars or possibly removing them. Chemical peels utilize a chemical to help remove scar tissue and encourage new skin growth. Laser treatments are similar to chemical peels, except instead of using a chemical, they use targeted lasers to remove scar tissue. Surgery for removing acne scars involves taking a wire brush to sand away scar tissue, which then promote new smoother looking skin to grow.
