Q and A with Doctor Kim

Q: What should I use to control acne and to remove pimples marks?

You may benefit from a procedure called Photodynamic Therapy or PDT which can address both active acne and acne scars.  Although FDA-approved to treat sun damage, it is used off-label to help control active acne and improve skin texture.

How do I get rid of the acne or pimples and the ugly dark scarring from previous times? Home remedies only please.

Unfortunately, there is NO effective home remedy that properly addresses acne and acne scars.  You may try over-the-counter salicylic acid-containing washes + differin to help with active breakouts.  However, to properly address acne scars, you do require physician-strength treatments to include the following: photodynamic therapy, laser resurfacing, microneedling + PRPchemical peels, and/or oral prescriptions.
