Hello. The scars and the pigmentation on the face are treatable. It's better to get it examined first so that we can identify the type of skin, scars and if they are hyper pigmented, atrophic or ice pick scars. The treatment are of various kind like ranging from simple scrubs and mild peels for the face to the major interventions such as laser therapy, dermaroller, subcision or peeling. These depend on the type of the scars and which kind you opt for. You can consult me online or text me with pictures for further details.

Chemical peels have to be used according to the indication. The choice of chemical peels also matters. They give wonderful results when done for proper reasons. If not done judiciously they may lead to problems.

I had a chemical peeling 2 weeks back .My skin has grown black and the skin is peeling very slowly .Should I use my hand to peel off the skin or it will be peeled off? It is shown more black than before and it's almost 2 weeks, I took this treatment and it's peeling very slowly. Will the blackness after the treatment go away once the skin got peeled off/ What should I do? This is my third sitting of chemical peel and I had taken it on my arms.

The treatment of acne differs according to the grade of involvement. Some people have more oiliness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks and pores left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please call me or send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.

My question is related to Dermatology. I have oily skin and I am having severe acne and acne scars on my face. I have consulted a doctor few weeks back and she prescribed to use aziderm (azealic acid) ointment and azithromycin tablet. Although, I am using it but don't see much improvement, infact now I can see many new acnes coming up. My doctor has suggested to go for chemical peeling in 5 sittings but with no assurance of permanent cure. Since chemical peeling is costly, I would like to know if there is alternative procedure or any permanent cure for acne? Can I give a try to Retino AC Gel (Tretinoin and Clindamycin), does it gives good result in severe acne? OR I should go for chemical peeling?

Yes. Ideally oral treatment with isotretinoin (avoided if you are planning for pregnancy) should be taken. Peeling is always an add on never the base drug and doctor is treating with approach one. You can ask her to change the approach as peeling seems expensive to you. Use retino A micro gel 0.04% local application at night (thin film all over face in a rice grain sized quantity except. Around eyes) Use Brevoxyl creamy wash in morning followed by Clindac A lotion on face. No hair oil. Continue azithro. And continue azelaic acid on pimple and pimple marks 2 hours after retino at night. Else ask your doc to change the approach.

Avoid using the items mentioned by you as almost all of them have abrasive property ('natural' doesn't always mean suitable). Best thing to apply post-peel is moisturizers and sunscreens. Also, to wash the face, use only mild cleansing lotion. Until peeling is complete, do not be adventurous. See a Dermatologist for appropriate treatment regimen post-peel.

Hello, Acne can be depressing sometimes as it requires prolonged and laborious treatment. Sensitive skin may have been due to various reasons like prolonged steroid use, dryness etc. Since you have sensitive Co2 laser may produce pigmentation and prolonged redness. Chemical peels too are not advised in sensitive skin. Subcision, microneedling are good options. One good option is combining these with Fat graft it not only elevates the scars it also rejuvnates the skin with growth factors. You can consult with pictures for better understanding of your concerns.
