Acne scarring

If you currently have an acne breakout, Curology can help prevent future scarring by preventing and treating active blemishes.

For redness and hyperpigmentation, blemishes from old acne lesions can take months to heal (about 6 months on average after lesions first appear). Fortunately, pigment change is not permanent, so this is not considered scarring.

Depressed scarring doesn’t resolve with topical treatments. That said, tretinoin may help scarring somewhat in the long-term, due to its collagen-stimulating effect. If you want to pursue in-office treatment, we recommend reviewing your options in-person with a local cosmetic dermatologist.
