I would recommend visiting the doctors, that helped me. Also I used the Mario Badescu whitening mask and that helps but it is more expensive. You cannot completely get rid of the scars, they will fade over time, however you may be left with some marks but they will be very minor. Ensure that you always use SPF as the sun can darken the scars. But overall go to the doctors as they will prescribe you will something and depending on your age you will not have to pay for it!

Good luck x

N'aww thankyouuu so much for this, much appreciated Emma! How much is the whitening mask? And does it help you a lot? My sister's scars aren't that much bad, only got a couple on her cheeks and on her chin.
Yep, I'll tell her to start using SPF too. She has never used them before!
She did go to the doctors, her doctor prescribed her Benzoyl Peroxide but our mom didn't allow her to use them. Because she said my sister was too young to use chemicals on her skin and she also said that it will damage her skin as it is very sensitive.
Ideally, her aim is to remove all my acne scars by the time she goes Uni (that is next year) but I don't think that will happen
Thankyouu x
