Red Active Acne and some scars that are present

​This is an answer for a patient that had red active acne and some scars as well:

“Well the good thing is that some of your scars are really just what appears to be active acne. Sometimes active acne can look like scarring and if you treat it your skin can get a lot better. I think if you control your active acne, I think your skin can be a lot better.  You do have scars but they’re not as bad or nearly as bad as I’ve seen. You probably better than 80% compared to other people who have come to me. I would suggest doing aggressive skin care treatments. We can help you with this. After using aggressive skin care, we can see what you have left after you give that a full chance. We can see if some of these marks are really going to turn out to be scars that are permanent. You also want to see if you can control your diet and see what’s triggering the acne possibly. One way to do this is to do a food diary and see what is leading to your acne. I would look for worsening in a 4 or greater than a day period. So introduce new food every 3-4 days to see what could be the cause.”
