Dear Skin Doctor, what can I do to prevent acne scars?
My top acne scar prevention tips include:
1. Do not pop or squeeze pimples. This increases the inflammation and increases the chances of forming big scars.
2. Use a comedone extractor to get rid of white heads. This is a much better option than squeezing the pimples.
3. Consult a skin doctor and get acne treated as soon as you notice a small pimple rather than wait for it to become a cyst.
4. Keep a reliable acne spot treatment at home so that you have something to zap the zits as soon as they begin. A good example is Neutrogena Acne Spot Treatment.
