i need something that works for old scars and knew one and is there anything you can do for the ones that go inward.What is the best over the counter treatment for acne scars and acne?
I would suggest the Zenmed scar kit.
The skin eraser is good and the cream really works. You have to allow 3-4 weeks to see results though. In my view its the best product for that price
And best of all they give you a 60 day money back guarantee!
I would also recommend some of the home remedies like lemon juice, emu oil.
You can find some on: (or simply use google)
MikeWhat is the best over the counter treatment for acne scars and acne?
In general, topical solutions are not sufficient to affect moderate to deep acne scarring but if your acne scar is not severe,(mild to moderate) you can improve your skin condition with many over the counter products.

There are many ways that can help you to treat your acne.
check these helpful methods that helped me to treat my acne:
Drink a lot of water every day. Try drinking at least two liters of still mineral water. If the skin becomes dehydrated, dead skin cells are not effectively shed, which can lead to blocked pores and further acne.
Sunshine and fresh air
Sunshine stimulates the creation of vitamin D in our body - an essential vitamin for healthy skin. A little bit of fresh air and sunshine every day will also reduce stress and increase oxygen to the skin. Even when it's overcast, the sun's rays reach us, so try to take a 10 minute walk outside every day. Don't get burnt in the sun though - apart from increasing the risk of skin cancer, burnt and heavily tanned skin forms a thick layer on the skin's surface that doesn't exfoliate quickly enough and leads to blocked pores.
Reduce the intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates
New research pointing the finger at diet - eating refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, rice, flour etc) and sugar leads to a surge in insulin and an insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1. This in turn leads to an excess of male hormones, which encourage the skin to excrete large amounts of sebum. This grease-like substance encourages the growth of bacteria responsible for acne.
Refined carbs/sugar = more insulin = more hormones = more sebum (oil) = more bacteria = more acne
The bed sheets
Keep your bed sheets clean. Wash your pillow case on a regular schedule to reduce the transfer of our natural body oils.
Wash your face
Wash your face just one time a day. Don't over wash , because that will cause only more production of oil on your skin. you can also use very gentle cleansers for normal skin that don't dehydrate the skin and wash twice a day.
Anyhow, don't go out and buy those magical acne systems that you can find anywhere online, they just don't work and you will spend your money for nothing.
Why not? Well, because it takes time to get rid of acne and you will need at least few weeks to see any noticeable results. There is absolutely no way to treat your acne immediately.
If you really want to treat your acne there are two recommended methods that should combined together for best results.
Firstly and most important you must learn how you should fix the internal problem that's causing your acne, not just masking the symptoms or getting relief.
There are only few decent Ebooks and acne cure programs that can teach you exactly how to treat your acne from the inside.
Where medicine has failed them the authors have done their own research and found a way to overcome acne. In their books they share their valuable knowledge with other acne sufferers. Anyhow, be very careful because many of them are pure crap with little value.

I have heard that Mederma works well. A friend at work was in a car accident and she had scars on her face. She tried it and it worked very well. Not sure about acne scars, but might be worth a try.
ok my dear
old scar means complete fibrosis (white scar)
so we need laser cure to remove it
if the colour is red use Mederma cream
