Hello Gegez,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified, whether you get the cream after undergoing a doctor's examination? Did the doctor prescribe it directly?


Not infrequently, acne does leave scars that are very annoying, which can last a long time, even after the acne itself heals without any trace. There are many types of acne scars, can also be reddish and curved to form pockmarked as you experience. This condition can obviously be very disturbing in appearance and can also impact on your decreased confidence.


We suggest, to get the best treatment for your acne scars, you do not carelessly provide treatment, especially using drugs that are not included over-the-counter drugs (including 0.1% tretinoin cream).


Tretinoin 0.1% cream itself works by affecting the growth of skin cells so that damaged skin cells peel off and no longer clog pores. The use of this cream is also intended to increase skin cell regeneration so the skin will look brighter and healthier. The use of this cream can indeed help overcome acne and fade the scars. However, the use of this cream alone is considered less effective to deal with pockmark acne scars as you experience. Even for some sensitive people, the use of 0.1% tretinoin cream can trigger an allergic reaction or irritation that makes the skin look worse.


You can have your complaint checked by a doctor or dermatologist so you can get the right treatment. To treat acne scars as you experience them, your doctor can give you several types of drugs or other medical procedures, such as injection fillers, chemical peels, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, laser therapy, and so on.


Right now, you should also try the following natural steps:

Wash your face diligently and cleanly
Reduce the use of cosmetics that are too thick
Do not also carelessly use skin care products without consulting first to the doctor
Use a moisturizer and sunscreen so that the skin is not dry and is not also exposed to direct sunlight
Drink more
Eat a variety of brightly colored fruits and vegetables
Sleep early and be more organized

Hope this helps ...
