I have dark scars/spots from previous acne. I am tired of having to wear so much make-up to cover it up! I dont get acne that often anymore, but I do have oily skin. I've tried pro-active and other on the spot acne treatments but they don't fade my scars at all.

Scars are hyperpigmentation of the skin. Go to a spa in your area with good reviews, ask for their website, and also seach them on the web, you can find reviews there. They most likely would have facials and spot treatment, recommeneded from the Esthetician for you. Dermalogica works for me for daily care, and they have spot treatment medicine also. Good luck!

If you want to stick with DIY home treatments, I would suggest Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion&Peel System at nights. Then finish off with Olay Daily Regenerating Serum and Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment. Just because the skin is oily doesn't mean it doesn't need moisture. I found out that products like Proactive series are harsh over time. Now that my skin has changed after pregnancies, the Olay products have been much more helpful at fading out any blemishes and dark spots. Good luck to you!

I do not know is it the best but light therapy is the most safe method to reduce acne scars. No harsh chemicals, no downtime or recovery time.

Lightbulb Getting rid of acne scars from the inside and outside, for best results - 02-06-2013, 11:16 PM

Getting rid of acne scars works from the inside-out and the outside-in, for best results.

First, start out with a rotating brush (such as Olay's version) and gently exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week before you put on your skin product. During this time, I would use only moderate amounts of product so your skin doesn't react by producing too much oil. Also, drink a lot of water to plump and hydrate your skin naturally, along with an omega-3 supplement for moisture and anti-inflammatory effect.

After you exfoliate your skin with the brush, try your scar-reducing product. "Ambi" is a brand that has good clearing products for darker skin. Or you can try the "Virginia" brand Cinnamon Soft Masks, which clears skin, calms it, and makes it less oily. This part takes experimenting, and it can be helpful to read product reviews on a site like Amazon because different things will work for different people.

Finally, be patient. It can take time because scars have been around for a little while. But if you keep at it, they will go away...especially as you drink water and exfoliate (encouraging skin regeneration).

Good saying and i am agree with you but somewhere i also disagree with you. I think the best way to acne remove is usage of aloe vera. And you should drink maximum glass of water. You just wash your face and rub the juice of aloe vera on it. Wait till dry it and wash your face again. Repeat it every morning. I hope you will find good result. Thanks.
