Advice on Acne Scarring
I've had mild acne for about 1 year and about 3 months ago finally saw a doctor about it and he prescribed me some over-the-counter pills, which cost $30 for 90 pills. I eventually ran out and had to get more, on my second container now
MINOCYCLINE HCL 100MG
and said not to take iron, calcium, or multivitamins within 2 hours of the medication, and to take with food.
I followed those instructions, initially taking 1 pill before bed, then after a month taking it once in the morning and once before bed, and now almost all my acne is gone, and my face is smooth.
The problem now is I am left with a quite a bit of red/brown pigmentation/scarring which can take up to or over a year to go away from what I've heard. I thought, I would rather spend maybe a few hundred $ and get rid of the scarring fast, then not spend money and have scars for a year or more. I made another appointment with my doctor 9 days ago and he referred me to a dermatologist (the referral was so I wouldn't have to pay for the visit, only the treatment). The dermatologist has not called me yet but once they do, I was considering getting a chemical peel, as I read pretty good reviews on it.
Anyone else have had experiences with chemical peels, or have any other solutions to their acne scarring?
Thanks in advance
