Acne Scars: What really works?

My Mom says putting cocoa butter on acne scars will smooth them away and make them less noticeable?

Also I’ve heard using mud masks will soften em up.

What works! I don’t have acne anymore just the embarrassing scars.

And my skin, the skin where acne was recently, is not smooth. It’s all…textured.

  3. Scars (also called cicatrices) are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin (or other tissue) after injury. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g. after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring.

    Mederma is a greaseless, pleasant-smelling, topical gel that’s formulated to improve the appearance and feel of just about any kind of scar. Whether you have stretch marks from a pregnancy or a scar from surgery, Mederma can help make your scar appear softer and smoother.
