Does Triluma help with scarring from picking!

Hello DR. does tri-luma help with brown sccaring from picking? I.. like to try it ty

The short answer is yes………… but only if you stop picking!    So here’s my question to you.  I’d like you to think about why you’re picking.  If you have acne, please see a dermatologist and let him/her help you with that so you won’t be tempted to pick.  If you control the acne, if you have it, and the picking then the Triluma, in combination with sunscreen, will be helpful for you.   

I always tell my patients who pick that they have lots of company.   Almost everyone picks something on their skin at some point.  It’s really a matter of degree.  If you pick occasionally, that’s probably normal.   If you are picking daily, than you may have anxiety that needs to be treated before you’ll get better.   You may really be happier if you see a psychologist to help you manage your anxiety.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
