How to Get Rid of Acne Scars—Forever
The only thing worse than having a major pimple (or acne) is the long-term scarring that follows. Even if you care for your skin like a newborn infant, spots and red marks can linger for weeks or months. But there are expert ways to fade them fast—or prevent the scarring from even forming in the first place. We spoke with Yunyoung Claire Chang, a dermatologist at the Union Square Laser Dermatology; Dennis Gross, dermatologist and founder of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare and Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology; Dr. Michele Farber of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City; and Gilly Munavalli, medical director and founder of Dermatology, Laser, and Vein Specialists of the Carolinas, to give us the lowdown on how to prevent and get rid of acne scars—forever.
You may have more luck with acne itself, but they could help in the long term. “Raw Manuka honey is anti-inflammatory and can help to calm active pimples, which can prevent future dark marks and scarring,” says Farber. “It has also been shown to have an anti-bacterial effect, but it is not clear from available evidence that it fights bacteria that causes acne.”
