Hi Sam, that just sounds terrible! have you tried any of the fading or lightening creams out on the market? I know I used a cream called Barielle to get rid of my freckles, maybe it would work for you as well.

You can get it at most beauty counters, but you might want to try a fadding fluid or there is a gel from dermaglow works great too. There are always options, go and check out what they have at your local beauty counter, they might have something they can recommend to you. Even a pharmacist might be able to suggest something to you like an HQ lightener. Good luck!

Hi Sam,

Trying applying some turmeric cream on the scars morning and night. This will help fade it over time.

Hi Sam xx, I think I found you a better answer than the one I had proposed earlier on... I've been doing a little digging, and TONS of reading.... Now I'm experimenting on myself with pretty good results. Then I thought about this thread and this might help you..
La Roche-posay Mela-D serum.. It has Kojic Acid + glycolic acid but no hydroquinone. the kojic will fade the scars, then the glycolic will help peel the scared cells faster- benifits of a peel without the peel! I've been using it on my knees and ankle - I had a very nasty fall- my dog dragged me over 80 yards through gravel and everything else you can imagine.... But I was left with some really nasty scars, around my ankle where his rope burnt me, and knees- gravel and asphalt burnt...but this stuff is really lightening it up you can see it the difference daily.. and it's not too expenssive I 30$ at Shopper's drug mart. Hope this helps you out.

Mony,

Can La Roche-posay Mela-D serum be used to remove age spots and freckles too? I am looking for something to remove mine.
Thanks.
