I have white scars on my face from when I used to pick my face. It's been years and won't go away at all. What can I do?

Fractional Microneedle Resurfacing May Help To Treat Ivory White Facial Scars
Unfortunately, for the present, no treatment is particularly great for this problem. However, I have had a fair measure of success over the years combining fractional microneedle resurfacing (aka medical microneedling, skin needling) with the application of topical tyrosine for improving both the texture of the scars and for blending their color better with the surrounding normal skin.
As an aside, I have been totally underwhelmed with more expensive treatments, such as fraxel lasers or radiofrequency devices, finding them to be far more device manufacturer supported marketing hype and little hard science.
Best to consult with a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in all forms of acne scar treatments before proceeding.

White scars area very difficult to treat and can be impossible to treat. The best success I have is with eMatrix to help correct these scars. Best, Dr. Green
