Even ifbattling zitsis a distant memory filed away with high-school gym class and algebra tests,acne marksand scars can annoyingly linger long after thepimplesare gone. “If someone gets a very large pimple orcyst, the natural healing process of the skin will create a scar,” says dermatologistDavid Avramof Heights Dermatology and Laser. “The more intense the inflammation, the more likely it will leave a scar.”
True acne scars — as in indentations in the skin like ice-pick scars — can be erased only by professional procedures likemicroneedlingor lasers. Fortunately, what most of us refer to as “scars,” according toJulia Tzu, founder and medical director of Wall Street Dermatology, are actually marks caused by post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (brown spots) or post-inflammatory erythema (red spots) that will fade over several months or years. Also fortunately, there are products that can speed up the process.
We spoke with Tzu, Avram, and seven more dermatologists to get their recommendations fortreating, preventing, and camouflaging acne marks.

POST-ACNE SCAR & INDENTATION DISTILLATE
Niacid is a waterless distillate of isolated molecules focused at raising indentations and clearing persistent marks (post inflammatory erythema/pigmentation) left on skin surface by inflammatory traumas like acne or other atopic disorders.
Clears persistent scars
Mechanism: Melanin dispersion & erythema constrictionDosed with a high concentration ofNiacinamide (Vitamin B3)andTranexamic Acid, Niacid forces congregated melanin pigment (brown spots) to separate and break free from a single spot on skin.
Dark red or purplish marks (post-inflammatory erythema) are visible blood vessels close to the surface of skin that dilated during inflammation. Niacid works to gently constrict dilated blood vessels while simultaneously sedating residual redness with Sodium Guaiazulene - a Crystalline from Blue Tansy of the Chamomile family.
Reconstructs damaged barrier
Mechanism: Barrier structuring, hydration and nutrifying
Medicinal herb Scutellaria Root and Galactomyces ferment delivers key bio-available nutrients while Sodium hyaluronate in custom molecular size lingers near skin surface to draw hydration and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
After cleansing, drop 3 drops onto palms and gently press into skin until fully absorbed. Follow up with your usual routine (if any) As your skin becomes more hydrated and absorbs Niacid with greater ease after the first few applications, increase to 6 drops per application and then half a dropper full progressively.
*Important step: Apply a high rating SPF daily to prevent UV rays from impeding your skin's progress with Niacid.
