11 Dermatologist-Approved Products to Get Rid of Acne Scars


   Active breakouts are frustrating enough, but the scars and marks they can leave behind can make us feel completely helpless. “The good news,” says Saddle Brook, NJ dermatologist Fredric Haberman, MD, “is that many acne scars can be treated. Each and every scar is different, and often a combination of treatment approaches is necessary to achieve maximum improvement.” 

“You can get retinoids OTC in products labeled retinol or in prescription-strength versions, my favorite being Retin-A (tretinoin generic). Retinoids are scar-remodeling, collagen-boosting, pigment-fading superstars. I don’t know many board-certified dermatologists who don’t use and recommend them daily. For a drugstore option, try Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Defense. For a more cosmetically elegant product, try Alastin Retinol.”
