– What to do when you
have giant acne scars from having really
severe acne in the past, and also what to do with mild scars, too. Now, I’m a big fan of videos that get to the point immediately and then get into the long talking part, so here are the treatments
that I have actually looked up and found people to have high reviews of that actually work for acne scars, and here are the treatments from lightest to most severe of treatment, and I’m gonna get more
into what each one is as we go into the video, but I’m just gonna list them right now, starting with dermabrasion brush, mechanical exfoliation, Retin-A, chemical peels
from light to deep, micro dermabrasion, laser treatments, Dermapen, and augmentation and fillers, and that is the list. Now, let’s get into
which ones are effective and which ones I have used
and which ones I suggest. Now, we’re gonna move from
the light to the medium to the severe treatments that you can do for your acne scars, so these first two are
really for people with very minimal scars,
like almost non-visible. Otherwise, if you have deep, box car, deep needle ice pick type scars, these aren’t gonna help, but dermabrasion brush,
which is kinda like that little spinning brush you’ve
probably seen from Clarisonic. I’m sure there are other ones, but it’s just a spinning
brush of fiber-style bristles. It’s not a metal or like a hard surface, and it just spins, and
it’s supposed to remove the top layer of dead skin. These may or may not work. Who really knows? For me, I had too severe
of acne for this to work, so when I tried it, it wasn’t
doing anything for my scars. It wasn’t doing anything for my acne. Moving on to the other
most common light treatment for acne scars and acne in general is mechanical exfoliation, so you’ve probably seen this before. I think St. Ives has a brand of this. Basically, like a pumice stone or, more commonly, it’s like a wash or something that you use in the shower that has little tiny pieces of stone or something that’s mechanically
able to scrape your face as you use it. That scraping is, again,
purposefully trying to remove that top layer of dead skin, and once again, this did
not help me with my acne or with my scars after my
acne had receded or gone away. Now, moving on to the medium list, and everything from
this point on to the end has pretty much been done
over and over and over and has been reviewed thousands of times by people with true acne scars as things that have helped with theirs. I’m gonna get more into it, and I’ll tell you guys about which ones I think are the best. Speaking of one of the best, Retin-A. I suggest this for
anybody that can get this that has some serious
acne scars to deal with. This is just as simple as
a topical ointment cream that you put on your face. The only reason that it’s difficult to get is because you have to
have a prescription from a dermatologist, a doctor, to get this, so you have to go in and say what’s up to the guys to get it, but what this does is
you put it on your face, and it actually removes
the top layer of skin. It is vitamin A derivative, and it removes that top layer of skin. It helps create new
layers of skin, I believe, and in that process, causes your skin to even
out the surface levels. That way, your scars don’t look as bad. Now, I have used Retin-A so many times during my acne treatment itself, but especially after my acne treatment when I was trying to treat my scars. I saw a significant difference in my rolling cheek scars, specifically. When it comes to like I had discoloration over here next to my ear. I had a lot deeper ones in certain areas. Those didn’t really get
helped much by that, but those rolling scars were
really helped by Retin-A, so I suggest checking that out. Chemical peels. Now, I’m kinda on the
fence with chemical peels. I do know that they do
work for some people. But other people kinda have
this up and down experience where some people see
nothing happen from it. Some people see, or at least they say that they think that it is the
holy grail of everything. Now, chemical peels all vary in severity of the actual chemical
you’re using to peel that top layer of dead skin off. Anything from AHA, which is
kind of the lighter treatment that most people can use. I think you can even
just buy it at the store, on Amazon, no big deal, and then there’s more intense ones. There’s kind of a medium version of TCA, and then there’s a more potent version of the same treatment with
like a higher percentage of the TCA, and that is the
like severe chemical peel. All chemical peels are going to cause you to have a very irritated
face, very red face. Depending on how severe it is, it’s gonna stay with
you for multiple days. You’re gonna have to
stay out of the sunlight, et cetera, et cetera, things like that, and they have medium returns,
like I was saying earlier. Some people see great returns on this. Some people don’t, and
they can go from cheap to really expensive. This one, I think you have
to do your own research on to see if you think it’s worth it. Micro dermabrasion, and
there’s so much confusion when it comes to micro
dermabrasion and dermabrasion and like 30,000 other
derivatives of the same phrase, but micro dermabrasion is basically, it’s kinda hard to explain, but basically, they have this tiny little vacuum and this little propulsion unit, and it shoots finally ground
crystals into your skin, and the reason that this is
supposed to be beneficial is it shoots them into your
skin, which causes damage, but all at the same level,
because it’s shooting them at the same pressure, and then
as it’s shooting them down, another vacuum right beneath
it is pulling them back up. So it’s shooting them in, pulling them up, and then your face is just, you know, finely ground skin, and it allows it to grow
back at a similar rate by stimulating collagen
growth, et cetera, et cetera, and the thought process is that it’s all gonna be even afterwards. This one actually does have
some good success in it. Now, a lot of people have said they’ve seen some good
success in this one, but again, this is not one that is seen as like the holy grail perfect thing for people with acne scars. Now, we move on to the heavy, expensive, long term, lots
of side effect treatments. Now, these are ones that are gonna yield the
biggest results, right? They’re gonna be the
most expensive, though, and they’re gonna keep
you out of, you know, normal life for the longest,
starting with laser. Now, laser was what I was suggested, and there are so many
different types of laser. There’s CO2, there’s Fraxel,
there’s like 45 other ones, so again, you do have
to do your own research on which type is gonna be
right for your acne scar type, because your acne scar
type plays a lot to do with what type of treatment you do, and also, what your doctor’s
gonna think and suggest, because what I did is I
went to my dermatologist with the intention of laser, and then he turned me on to Dermapen, which is what we’ll talk about, but laser shoots little
lasers into your skin, and there’s a couple
different versions of this, and the idea is that those
lasers are at such a high, I don’t think it’s a frequency,
it’s a heat, I don’t know. Honestly, I’m not well-versed on this, but what it does is when
it shoots those lasers into your skin, it causes little pits, but the pits are all at the same depth. All of these ideas are kind of the same, just with different mediums,
different ways to perform it, and by causing those holes
to be all the same depth, it stimulates that collagen growth and it’ll all grow back relatively even. Again, most of these treatments are not gonna work the first time. You’re gonna have to do
them over and over and over to help that evening out
process get more even. Now, moving on to Dermapen,
laser is very expensive compared to Dermapen. A laser treatment was going to be about three times the cost that my Dermapen treatment was gonna be, so I ended up doing three
Dermapen treatments. It was $350 each session. It should have been 500, but because I’m a social media person, they gave it to me for 350, so a Dermapen treatment
that I was supposed to get was 500, and I did three, so it would have cost me 1,500. A laser treatment was
gonna cost me $2,000. Now, the best way that I
can explain a Dermapen, and probably the simplest
way that I can explain it is just a tattoo gun without ink. Obviously, things are
a little bit different. The gauge of the needle’s
a little bit different, but that’s the same kind idea. They’re just going to
rub this little opening on a plastic pen all over your face, and in the middle of
that little plastic pen are a few metal needles that
are shooting straight downwards into your skin, causing
you to have, again, little holes in your skin
that are all the same depth, thus stimulating regrowth
at the same rate. Now, this should not be confused with, and a lot of people will
come up with this suggestion, Dermapen shooting these
needles in straight is not the same as a Dermaroller. A roller has those same style needles that are supposed to penetrate your skin, but the problem is that a Dermapen shoots in your skin and
comes right back out of it. A Dermaroller rolls into your skin, which causes an uneven scratch. This is what my dermatologist told me, causes an uneven scratch,
because it hits the surface, pulls and scratches in, and then as it comes out of the skin, it is kind of scooping back out, so instead of making holes
that are straight up and down, it’s actually making
scoops as it’s rolling, if that makes sense, so he said that’s
actually not a good thing, to do the Dermarolling, but the Dermapen, in my opinion, is pretty decent if you have the money for it. Now, something I didn’t quite understand is that the Dermapen actually
takes up to nine months to start seeing results, so you aren’t gonna be able
to kinda judge your results in the first six months
or anything like that. I think that’s what I was doing. Now, I have actually seen
quite a big improvement in my actual scarring, but the thing that I
think kind of proved to me that Dermapen does work in some respect is I had this very, very discolored spot next to my ear over here, and it used to be this dark purple, very dark purple, kinda looked
like a old blood blister, and now it has alleviated
color significantly, so I would say that Dermapen
is actually very effective if you have the money for it. If you don’t have the money for it, then I would go with Retin-A. If you have the money for both of them, then I would say do both of them. That’s what was best
for my type of scarring, and my scarring was probably about, I would say, like a C plus or a B minus, if A plus was like the most
severe type of acne scar. Doing lots of talking in this video, but I really wanna kind of
explain each type of treatment that you can do. I don’t wanna leave you
guys with a short video that has a catchy title
without actually leaving you with the information, so the last one I wanna talk to you guys about, which is proven to work extremely well, but it’s kinda severe, is
augmentations and fillers. Basically, a lot of people
with ice pick deep scars, super deep scars, will have an augmentation happen and a filler that happens, where
they take that hole, right? So your skin is right here,
and then you have a hole and then you have skin, so they take your skin
that has a hole in it and they fill underneath it with, I’m not exactly sure
what they fill it with, but that causes that
hole to be less depressed by filling the space underneath it, which causes all of your
scars to start to pop up. The way that they do this
surgery is pretty severe. They actually stick a
needle into your skin and then they kinda
wiggle it around like this to release your skin from the subcutaneous fat underneath
it, and then they fill it. It looks pretty crazy, but people have seen pretty
good results from it, so this is one that you’ll
have to look into on your own, because I can’t make the
judgment of whether this is too scary or severe for you. So, there it is, my friends. Those are the treatments
that I think are effective. There are so many other
treatments you’re gonna find. There’s a lot of different remedies, and I’m not saying that
those ones are bad, but I’m saying that these are the ones that I have personally researched, and have seen like hundreds
and thousands of people leaving reviews saying that they work. For me, personally, these are
the ones that worked for me, the Dermapen and the Retin-A
were by far the best ones at all for me, so you should
check out all of these. I hope this video kind of lays some basic ground works
for you on what you can do to help your acne scars get better, kinda empower you with some information so you don’t feel so lost, ’cause that’s definitely how I felt. I felt like I was just trying to figure everything out myself and nobody really had the answers for me, so I hope that you can take this video, this information, hit Google with it, kinda decide what you think
is the best approach for you, and I really hope that that
treatment actually helps you, and I hope it helps get you to where you want to be with your skin. Thanks for tuning in my friends. If you liked this, make sure

  1. Hey everyone thank you so much for the support on this video, make sure to subscribe to my new ALL acne channel here:! 🙏

    My four biggest tips for people who want to make change in their acne are to
    1) REMOVE DAIRY 100% (not even a little tiny slip up)
    2) Eat 8-16 servings of dark green cruciferous veggies
    3) Drink more water (1-2 gallons a day)
    4) Balance your gut flora by ingesting some form of probiotics.

    What protein can I use?
    A lot of people watching my channel are into fitness and consume whey protein, protein bars and products with dairy in them. Whey/casein proteins are concentrated dairy, you need to switch to a plant based protein. The best plant based protein is the raw plant protein from VivoLife (Yes, I'm sponsored because I support them fully – use BRIAN10 for 10% off VivoLife: They do not include preservatives, coloring or fake sugars which are are terrible for you. They also have greens that provide most of your daily vitamins, veggies and even probiotics. I promote them because their products do not break me out and are high quality.

  2. first of all ,your video is by far the best one ive seen that actually explains what to do and how to do thing and the whys without dragging us in a spiral of useless info and stupid advice
    for me my acne problem started a week after my father died which was the cause of a lot of stress and anxiety , that resulted in a hormonal disorder and i started having mild to sever acne on my face which i never had even during puberty , i had a very clear skin . after that i started doing all sort of treatment from natural products to chemicals but nothing worked , so i gave up and said that its just a phase and that it will pass …… obviously it didnt for more than 3 years which affected my self esteem and confidence , i met and old friend of mine who had the same problem i had and advised me to try a benzoyl peroxide cream .at first i didnt see any improvement and gave up and in the past two months i decided to try it again without getting discouraged from not seeing results fast , and after only 3 weeks my acne stopped , no new acnes showing up on my face everytime i look in the mirror .although i still have discoloration and trying to find a solution for it that it wont damage my skin
    the cream i got is benzaclin 10% i used for a month everyday before i go to bed and always wash my face with natural soap and then used a nutritious cream to fight off the pealing , after that , i downgraded to the 5% then 2.5% .and its doing wonders to my problem

  3. I got rid of 90% of my acne by quitting coffee and all other caffeine drinks but coffee for reasons I still don’t know why was the biggest culprit. Hope this helps anyone who is at a loss for how to stop acne and I had nodular cystic and inflammatory acne

  4. TCA cross is the best acne treatment for deep scarring done by a dermatologist. This video barely touches on anything. Go to my channel and watch my video.

  5. Brian, without even trying, in this video, you have become a man's grooming tip. This is such an important vid for guys who are looking to improve their facial skin after years of acne scars. Thanks so much!

  6. dermapen helped my skin. i wouldn't say it helped 100% but three treatments and i see a 30% difference in scarring. so its a major improvement. laser, fraxel didn't do anything for me and i spent SO much money on it 🙁

  7. Hey i will give a tipp to all people suffer from acne a tip that i wish spmepne has told me when i was younger and hat big problems with acne STOP SUGAR and GO GLUTENFREE !!!! And you will see how your loge Change !

  8. Does Retin-A make you break out or purge to begin with?
    I used a5% AHA (and my skin got to the worst it has ever been while I was using it)

  9. This video helped so much, because it's exhausting but not boring at all, nice video man 💪🏼

  10. I dont know you…but I love you. Aha, this is exactly what I was looking for. Never had acne until I hit 21 and at 24 it absolutely blew up and has left me physically scarred and emotionally wounded. Thank you SO MUCH for this list and explaining it. Great video

  11. I had terrible acne in HS and tried everything from Retinols to Proactive Solution (when it first came out and wan't sold in vending machines), and then finally I was prescribed Accutane. I took it every day for 2 years just like this guy and it 100% got rid of all my acne. If you take Accutane, it will GUARANTEED get rid of your acne. However, the health risks associated with this medication are pretty sketchy and I'm not sure if they even prescribe it anymore. My face looked like absolute shit while taking it because your face turns beat red, but it was worth it. After the acne went away I was left with large pores and rolling scars. Again, I did everything in trying to deal with this including egg white and lemon juice, ACV, retinols, Ole Erickson truth serum, ETC. Finally, I succumbed to dermal filler (~$350) at a local dermatologist and it helped. The effects of the filler hold for about 6 months. However, I did it about 3 times now I'm kind of getting nervous because I wonder if it'll have a long-term impact. I did a dermal filler (Restylane) once a year for 3 years then stopped. I didn't do it this past year, and instead I started doing something different. (1.) I have a smoothie every morning and include a bunch of kale as well as other natural ingredients. (2) I make a point to drink 3 liters of water every day (3) I apply Mad Hippie vitamin A serum at night and Mad Hippie Vitamin C serum in the morning. And always get as much fresh air as possible. My skin looks pretty damn good now. I hope this makes its way to someone and helps them too. Good luck

  12. Micro dermabrasion works well once a week at home.

  13. Ii have mild acne that flares up often. I wear a visor frequently. I'm guessing acne caused from oils in my hat. I use apple cider vinegar. I rub it on in the morning, dontbwear my hat for the day and another solution before bedtime. I spray the sweatband of my hat with 3% hydrogen peroxide and let my hat dry for the day

  14. Dermobrasion brushs in my experience didn't help acne scars at all tbh and mine aren't even that bad😥

  15. yes.. its most definitely possible to get rid of acne scars!!!!!! It takes a bit patience. Acne scars heal like how a flower or tree blooms if you know what I mean… im sure once its been taken care of you'll have better understanding and patience skills which is a win win… I know I have!! Microneedling is an amazing treatment for many….. Each session you see the scars get more and more shallow. I suggest you get a couple professional treatments first like I've done then you could feel more comfortable at home! First couple times I microneedled I was shaky Lol.. I bought my pen on overstock its called Dr pen the gold one…. You have to make sure and clean the needles with 70 percent Iso alcohal for five minutes before and after your session. Also let it sit in soapy water before the alcohal for a couple minutes before and after as well. Soap will get skin and oil type stuff off…Make sure and not let the needles scrape the side of the glass!! Make sure the needles are not bent, and make sure when you first get your needles in the mail they are not bent!!! Let the needles dry for 5 minutes. Wash your face and hands then swab your face with 70 percent Iso alcohal.. I actually have a bottle of the alcohal and little square pads of the 70 Iso alcohal that looks like like its just a moist towel handzanitizer that you get at chic fil a but its not LOL…Let dry, then put hyaloronic acid serum on your face for moisture… Needle your face(watch videos and learn as much as you can) try not to over do it… Then put hyaloronic acid on again after. Dont wash your face that night, stay at home and indoors that night. Then you put some good nutragena sunscreen on that week. Only do this every month. And if you want you can message me with any questions! I know a good bit about other acne scar treatments too! Take it easy… Be very kind to yourself:) like you would a friend. DONT be hard on yourself. And learn to ENJOY the journey… Love you self at all stages you deserve it all. Like I said microneedling works for a lot of people.. Give it a lot of time and treatments then try something later if you feel its literally doing nothing try another treatment you think would do good. Ive heard sometimes people stop after two or three sessions but it may take that fourth to kick start it basically… Make sure you can trust and feel absolutely comfy with your ethstatition… Theres wonderful rf microneedling, tca cross, fraxel, microneedling, and co2 lasers… Also subsicion and of corse filler but ya know..anyways. God bless. Anything is possible… Ive research further than anyone to know there are many people deep online that have gotten rid of acne scars. Dont let anyone tell you its impossible or a permanent situation. Im simply paying forward the comes who shared their story that helped me and encouraged me when I doubted what I could do..(i doubted I couldn't get rid of acne scars…. I doubted hoe strong we are and if we put our minds to something you best believe)

  16. Look i am so scared of anything related to plastic surgery / Laser idk but i told myself whatever would happen to my face i wouldn't approach Laser (bc it's super scary i feel like there would be some side effects related to cancer etc and same goes for filler with unknown subsistence that may cause more harm when you're too old to care about skin problems ) so now i think Dermapen Seem to be the less dangerous option out of the 3 bc filler / laser is a nope whatever it is , and creams and skin care treatments are ineffective for me i need serious treatment so i am considering Dermapen since it's almost like Shiving gone wrong XD but i saw the blood and was too shook to function does it hurt when they apply it on your skin i hope not , also i am scared of laser bc my aunt got a laser treatment to remove hair and it went bad ways her skin got alot of damage and she has severe skin burn that she is treating hardly rn (money issues ) and i am so scared bc doctors nowadays don't seem honest at all i really hate when they try to make you feel at ease using words that only make you doubt them twice more bc they always say " we had worst cases than yours and you'll come back wuth a smile " but deep inside i know this is hiding something i feel like there would be side effects we are applying laser and fillers both seem too much for me idk i hope i am not mistaken by being too scardy but idk i feel like dermapen is the only way to cure this hell on my face but i am also scared of it being too painful someone pls tell me something to cheer me up bc at this rate i feel too scared to do anything and my peel off masks/ moisturiser / toner is doing nothing , i went to a doctor and he said lasef treatment should be my best option / filler if i am scared of laser and he insisted on me doing fillers / botox like technique to fill the void under the skin whole something but i was terrified i wish there was a magical cream to apply and wake up with porcelain skin bc i was too busy with life problems to even look at myself and now that i am at the of finally taking advantage of my youth and living the best life i still have to deal with the stigma left by all these problems i went to many doctors bc i was in bad shape i had many sicknesses plus anemia plus Exhaustion 24/7 and now that i feel better i got many things to fix at the same time and i am doing my best to avoid any pills / plastic surgery , i am eating healthy doing exercises and drinking water and trying to think positively but idk how to do for my skin it's stressing me i wish i didn't have to have this SUPER SUPER SUPER OILY SKIN

  17. This was incredibly helpful , I’ve had acne scars for years and I’ve had no idea what to do , Thankyou !!!

  18. Take note Guys! Some acne/pimple are hormonal. Meaning at Age 12/15 – 21 You normally do get acne/Pimple If you're wondering why other people doesnt have it, it's PUBERTY/HORMONAL PUBERTY ACNE. This also normally gets when you have – Mentruation – Menopause – Increased of androgen levels. But if you're a teenager (Like me) It's normal, Puberty usually starts at 12, Which makes you prone to acne/pimples some acne takes 2-3 years to be gone but of course it doesnt apply to all faces, some might normally fade when you reach at age 20 or so! But if you're 25+ age Meaning you actually have a hormones problem, Recommended to go to Dermatologist!

    PS : I got my first pimple and acne at age 14 i tried severals facewash and gels, Yes it did not help though it wasn't completely removed, some scars did fade but always comesback after a week. The thing is YOU CANNOT COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL OF IT BUT YOU CAN REDUCE THEM by using some facewashes, And ofcourse going to dermatologist is the best way to remove your acne/pimples, but that'll cost too much. So…. Enjoy your puberty and Enjoy life! <3
    Goodluck with our faces in the future! 🙂

  19. Augmentation is, I believe, called Subcision and the needle fanning they do beneath the skin is to Untether tethered scars.

  20. My dumb ass used Retin A in college and proceeded to do DAILY marching band practice in the sweltering sun. Bought it on my own w/out Rx in Mexico. To this day, parts of my face are photosensitive and I suffer with Eczema. Always go through a medical professional and follow their instruction.

  21. I’ve had an ice pick like scar on the tip of my nose, but it has skin over it. So it just causes a big red circle on the tip of my nose, is there anything I can do? Will it heal? It’s been 6 months with no healing I’m 16

  22. I think I need a Derma pen treatment right between my nose and mouth. I've been breaking out alot and when I pop them. I know I shouldn't, But it left little bumps and I hate it. What do you think it is acne scarring?

  23. Thanks buddy for ur info I thought I was gonna be like this forever now I gonna be an asshole with all the girl that want me now that didnt before and I have skills and trades its just my face was torn up a little by me by messing with every zit I got and got infected so THANK YOU SO MUCH NOW I wont need that helmet hiding my face when riding my motorcycle, scooter , moped, Mercedes and so on, I grade myself a C .

  24. Man can you help me with this problem, or anyone that knows please. I’ve had this old acne bumps on my nose for about 5 months, they never go away. How can I get rid of them, they look like pimples but they’re not.

  25. Aha can pre pretty strong as well. You also didn’t mention BHA. Im dark so I’m scared of TCA. But a medium AHA/BHA mix did wonders for my skin

  26. I bought a derma pen. You can buy one for around $100-$150 and do it at home. There are a lot of videos on how to do it on Youtube. Watch a bunch before you decide who is doing it right.

  27. What about hyaloron and microneedling some doctors put hyaloron in the skin by ably the hyaloron on the skin then microneedling it in the skin to fight against scars! Did you ever heard about it and what do you think Brian, should I try it 🤔 I love your Video's

  28. i got one for blemishes acne scars but its mostly for fading but i just barley started using it. so yeah and for dark spots.

  29. Brian- I really need you to reply to this,
