Fading Acne Scars
Hello. Thank you for your question, and your photos! Acne scars can be very frustrating, and bating them does take time and multiple treatments. On the bright side, however, the skin of the back and arms, can usually tolerate more aggressive treatments then the skin on your face. After all, you can always just wear a long sleeve shirt for a couple days if you need to!I would recommend a series of Jessner's peels. Jessner's solution is a common peel solution, which is sometimes sold under it's own name, and sometimes other names such as the Illumanize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize peels from SkinMedica. This is a very good peel for treating pigment and acne both, so in addition to fading the spots on your skin, it can also prevent new outbreaks. I would recommend that you do this once a month, for at least 6 months.

A combination of hydroquinones and chemical peels would be best to help you treat these acne marks. Please consult a specialist. Best, Dr. Green
