What can I do about these pimples scars? What can I use to reduce the pimples on my forehead?

Since I had my son 2 years ago my pimples have gotten worse and I find my self unknowingly picking at them. The scars are now riddled across my forehead and eye brows. I used to have beautiful radiant skin and now it's nasty. I use a benzoyl peroxide face wash and since I was 16 a 1% clindamycib topical solution. My skin has become very oily during the day. What can I do? I don't feel pretty anymore because of these nasty scars.

Treatment of light scars on your forehead

Minimize picking of your scars, apply Melapads twice daily, and start with light chemical peels once monthly.

Acne Scarring -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2/Erbium, VIVA, Intensif); Microneedling/PRP, Fillers (Bellafill); Subcision; Punch Excision

Based on our photos a combination of lasers, microneedling/PRP and skin care will be best. I suggest you see an expert in scars.  Intensif microneedling RF has also been a big success in our practice.  Best, Dr. Emer.
