Acne "holes" on face

I have acne "holes" on my face from when I had cystic acne, I don't notice it until the sunlight hits it and it seems to be more noticeable. I don'thave discoloration so not sure if a lightening product will help. Any other suggestions?

I feel your pain!  I have deep holes in my face from acne as well!  I've been searching forever for something to help.  I'm going to try those primers that the other ladies suggested.  Also, google dermabrasion.  It is a surgical procedure that is more invasive than microdermabrasion, but it looks as if it might be effective for deeper pock marks.  I'm not sure how much it costs; I'm assuming it is expensive.  I'm saving my money and i'm going for a consultation when I graduate from school.  In my state the procedure is done by a plastic surgeon that is certified in the dermabrasion procedure.


Lots of patience and exfoliation.


Otherwise, you can try having small amounts of filler injected.


Hi blondy1483!


Try using a line filling and texture smoothing primer either under makeup or alone. This can help to even out the tone and especially the texture of your skin so that any uneven-ness due to acne, scarring, or wrinkles is less visible.


Fusion Beauty IlumiFill Line Filling Luminizer with Amplifat

This product is great for filling in any unevenness due to lines and wrinkles while promoting collagen buildup to help plump up any uneven texture.

This base is amazing to wear under makeup or alone and works to smooth pores while reducing shine. Your skin is left with a long lasting matte and velvety texture that is smooth to the touch.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More really does cover the appearance of holes.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More would be my best suggestion to fill these areas and create a very smooth surface. A definite must try!!!

I agree with secretlyglammom. Exfoliation and patience. You can also try a scar cream or acid peels.

I wouldn't invest too much money on a topical product for this.  I have had the same kinds of scars for many years and they don't cover up very well, and they definitely don't diminish with exfoliation.  The  advice you received about saving your money for a medical procedure is probably your best bet.
