Sometimes I cringe when I read some of the information out there on the internet. With tons of low-quality self-help e-books (some are even promoted by popular sites and digital product marketplace) out there on acne scar treatment, I am not surprised if you are confused and overwhelmed with the information or rather misinformation. This would also include recommendations from Facebook friends, neighbours, emails, forum recommendations, search engine results etc.

We have searched around the internet and filtered out the junks out there. We have summarized essential information and provided some good relevant links in order to facilitate your research for 'acne scar treatment' in one place. Do go through them and do your own research and hopefully, you will be getting the best possible proven treatment for your acne scars

Step 1: Read more about Acne Scar treatment from credible websites.

Do not get confused by a lot of the 'spammy and scammy' sites out there on the internet.

Use good and reputable websites such as WebMD, NHS, Medscape in order to understand your acne scar condition including prevention and root causes.

So, how do you know which site is credible and which is not?

A quick check will be the Alexa ranking. You can check information about a particular site here:

Note: the higher the number (Alexa Traffic ranks), the lower is the ranking and the lower is the traffic. For example, ranks the highest with an Alexa traffic rank of #1 and has the highest global traffic. A new site will normally have a low Alexa ranking i.e. the Alexa ranking will be in millions as compared to popular sites.

Here are some recommended and example links that are considered credible -

Guide to Treating Acne Scars and Skin Damage

If you see signs that your acne is leaving a scar on your skin, you don't have to grin and bear it. There are lots of ways to heal your scars and keep new ones from forming...

Do take note that WebMd is one of the top healthcare sites in the world. Its’ ranked as the 2nd most popular site under the health category -

Please take note the guidelines above are comprehensive and could be too technical for you, developed mainly for healthcare professionals.

Cortisone and Fade Creams

If your scar is red or swollen, use a cortisone cream to calm your skin. The cortisone is absorbed by skin cells and reduces inflammation. You can buy skin creams with cortisone without a prescription. Examples of popular products available from your local pharmacies in Malaysia include Betnovate, Elomet etc.
Please take note that: 
"Hydroquinone, a popular skin lightener, has recently fallen out of favor and is now being omitted from many fading creams due to irritation and carcinogenic concern,"...

Laser and Filler Treatments for Acne Scars

In one to three sessions, laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase the formation of new collagen. Collagen is a protein that's a building block of the skin. The new collagen can help fill in acne scars.

Filler injections can help fill in the indentations left behind from deep acne scars. But the downside to fillers is that they need to be repeated every 4 to 6 months, as the product reabsorbs into the skin over time.

How to Prevent Scars or Help Scars Heal
  • Stay out of the sun. Exposing scars to the sun can cause them to darken and slow the healing process. Ultraviolet rays stimulate melanocytes (pigment-producing cells), leading to further discoloration.
  • Before heading outdoors, put on a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. Reapply after swimming, after sweating, and after more than 2 hours in the sun.
  • Don't pick and squeeze. Scars, which are made mainly of collagen, are your body's way of repairing itself. Acne scars are typically indented because of collagen loss from intense inflammation.
  • Picking leads to more inflammation and injury of your skin, which add to the discoloration and scarring. Squeezing or trying to pop a pimple causes pus and bacteria to filter deeper into the skin, bringing on more collagen damage.
  • Don't use vitamin E on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin E to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study from the University of Miami, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing. In the study, vitamin E either had no effect or made matters worse for 90% of the patients, and 33% who put vitamin E on the skin developed a contact dermatitis.

Many thanks

I?m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that?s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.
