I've been to the doctor and was given a cream but it hasn't helped. I was wondering what else I can try?

Hello, Microdermabrasion would help reduce the appearance of your spots and scarring significantly. It is not a cheap treatment but the results speak for themselves. Check out my website of the skinbase website for before and after pics and some more information about the treatment. Don't let skin issues affect your confidence!

I had bad acne when i was in my teens and early 20s i got a dabber called "Zynerit" it smelled like vinegar and you dabbed it on your spots it worked for me it may work for you, with regards to your scars you could try chemical peels or laser treatment.


although dermabrasion can help it is quite abrasive. you would really help your skin by using Environ skin care. the vitamin A will help to heal & calm.

Fractional laser could help greatly for the scars as it improves the collagen fibres in your skin. It can also help with the red spots but depending what they are, IPL or indeed Microdermabrasion/Skin peels could help calm them and keep them under control.



A high-grade retinol cream should work. Also a glycolic peel or laser treatment. Plus look at your diet, spinach (in smoothies) and omega oils / flaxseed heal the skin...nutrition is very important. Beauty Oil by Neals Yard Remedies (you can buy on my website) is very good and there is a Mahonia tincture from the store, worth trying too.
Good luck.


I would not recommend invasive treatments as your skin will have gone through a lot with the medicated cream treatment and it now needs to be nurtured and solutions selected that work in synergy with your skin's biochemistry.
There is always a nutritional cause for any skin concerns, either a deficiency or imbalance, I specialise in finding the cause.
I have many clients that have had these symptoms - we have healed and regenerated the skin using my prescriptive skincare expertise and making adjustments to diet and lifestyle - this is a long term solution.

Depends upon what the 'red spots' are from? What you could see are clusters of broken vessels? Sometimes they tend to take various shapes and can look like red spots or lesions. Hard to say w/o actually seeing your face.


To help clear you're skin there are new innovative treatments out but without a consultation I'm unable to advise what you will require


You need someone to look at the red spots. Sterex are close to you in Birmingham and can give advise and treatment and if you go in on a training day will treat you free of charge.
