Home remedy for acne scars
It is unlikely for an over the counter cream to improve moderate acne scars. A quick google search revealed that this topical is inexpensive. It did have some favorable reviews, but it is often difficult for me to discern whether these were written by patients or retailers of the cream. Salicylic acid is often used for treating acne. Depending on the concentration, it can create a mild peeling effect. If scars are moderate, it is likely that more significant peeling or resurfacing is necessary to appreciate any significant improvement. This can be achieved with dermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser resurfacing. Good luck!!
