You can improve the look of strech marks and scars by applying pure vitamin E oil and pure coca butter. You can also buy vitamin E pills and break them open and apply the oil inside the capsule to the area. You need to do this for at least a few weeks about 2-3 times daily. There is also silicon scar treatment that you can buy at a drug store like Walgreens. As for the acne, drink as much water as possible- I know you’ve heard this before, but it works! Drink at least 64 oz. Daily. That’s 8 tall glasses. Try to stay away from greasy foods. There’s an over the counter natural pill called Nature’s Cure (you can buy that at a drug store, too.) It comes with both pills and an ointment, and it’s like a vitamin supplement to help get rid of acne. Hope this helps!

You can find the products I mentioned at:

For strech marks, only $2.99:

For scars, only $10.99:

For Nature’s Cure, only $8.19:

How do I get rid of craters left from acne?

I suffered some pretty bad acne on my face through the ages of 14-15.
I’m 16 now and it’s 100% cleared up.
The problem is that I still have some indentations(craters) and redness.

What would be some reasonable steps to reducing these?

admin answers:

The primary treatments to get rid of scar from acne include dermabrasion, chemical peels, collagen injections, autologous fat transfer, punch grafts and laser resurfacing. A brief description of each procedure follows. As always, please consult your healthcare professional before obtaining any medical procedure.


Dermabrasion, sometimes called surgical skin planing, is often used to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne scars. The process includes anesthetizing the treatment area then an abrasive instrument is used to remove the damaged outer layers of skin. For the first few days following the procedure, the treated area may be discolored red and very sensitive. It is not unusual to feel a burning sensation in the treated area, and the discomfort can usually be treated with over the counter pain medication.

Chemical Peels:

Another way to get rid of the scar is by using a chemical solution. Chemical peels can enhance your complexion, appearance and self confidence by removing the damaged outer layers, leaving a smooth and improved skin texture. This process is best used on scars which are not very deep and can soften or even remove acne scarring. Side effects of chemical peels may include redness, stinging or other irritation and infrequently infection or additional scarring.

Collagen Injections:

Used primarily as a wrinkle filler, collagen injections can also be used to reduce the visibility of acne scars. With a fine needle, the dermatologist will inject the collagen just underneath skin. The injected material usually created from bovine skin and processed into a liquid form, pushes the depression created by the acne scar outward creating a smoother look. Usually, the only discomfort associated with this procedure is the injection itself. Make-up may be applied immediately upon completing and normal activities may be resumed.

Autologous Fat Transfer:

Much like collagen injections, the procedure is essentially the some, except that the material is harvested from the patient’s skin and processed into a liquid.

Punch Grafts:

A procedure proven to be highly successful when treating the ice pick type acne scars, this procedure is also effective when treating scars left behind by chicken pox or some types of trauma. The procedure essentially transplants skin grafts from behind the ear and places the grafts over areas of excised acne scarred areas. Recovery time to allow the grafts to “take” is approximately one week.

Laser Resurfacing:

As the name suggests, this procedure is performed by passing a laser over the affected area, where it removes the damaged skin one layer at a time. This procedure encourages the creation of additional natural collagen, which results in the reduction of the acne scars. Side effects from this procedure may include scarring, infection and the reduction or increase in skin pigment.

Finally as we had previously advised do not start any of these procedures to get rid of scar before consulting your dermatologist. Some of these recommended procedures need to be properly supervised to give you the desired results of a clear smooth skin.
