    Acne scars?

    Anyone have mild acne scars on their back or shoulders? if so is there anyway to remove or minimize their appearance? Or is cosmetic surgery the only way?

    That can have the oposite effect but it depends. Some scars will stay "white" while the skin in general gets darker = bigger contrasts in the skin. If the scar is red it can be even more red and irritated - the contrast will be even more noticable.

    But I agree, tanning can in a way compensate for the scars and darker skin can also make them less noticable (probably if it's mild acne). Keep in mind that new skin is not so protected.

    I have the same prob, bro - looking into a solution myself. I think daily exfoliation is probably the best home remedy. Will probably pursue chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and whatnot later in life.

    They have a scar removal cream that you can buy OTC, but I don't know how well it works.

    I have acne scars on my face. They're not too bad, but I notice them. I've never heard of a scar removal cream, I'll have to research that.

    You can get the stuff at Wal-mart, bro. It's usually $20-30 a tube, but last time I was there, WM had a generic for like 12 bucks. I bought one, just haven't tried it yet. Don't know how well it's supposed to work either.
