Cystic Scarring Acne
Cystic scarring acne can be emotionally devastating. I had one patient who told me that he could not make eye contact with other people because he was so self-conscious. You may need oral and topical antibiotics or even Accutane to treat these lesions. In addition, you most likely would benefit from intralesional cortisone injections and V-Beam lasers to treat these scars. Please find a board certified dermatologist in your area for the best cosmetic results.
Acne or Scar Creams May Help
Sebaceous Hyperplasia is different than Acne Scars
You will need to see a medical doctor to make sure that some other medical problem is not going on. That being said, sebaceous hyperplasia is usually treated with chemical peel, tangential excision, or dermabrasion.
To be sure what might be right for you, with parental consent see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
