Get rid of acne scars and dark spots once and for all with these powerful, supercharged serums. These acne scar removal picks from dermatologists will give your skin the perfect smooth finish you've always wanted.
If you have acne-prone skin, it can feel like you're constantly playing Whack-a-Mole by tackling new or just-beneath-the-surface breakouts with a combination of acne-fighting cleansers and spot treatments. It gets especially frustrating, though, when you try to target other skincare concerns you might have (think hyperpigmentation, dullness, or signs of aging), only for those treatments to trigger a new batch of pimples.
One of the most common skincare concerns people with acne struggle with is getting rid of acne scars and dark spots. While retinol and vitamin C serums can do wonders to smooth the complexion and brighten the appearance of acne scars, not all formulas are gentle enough to be used on skin that's particularly pimple-prone or currently breaking out. So we reached out to dermatologists to find out which vitamin-packed serums can help banish acne scars without causing a cycle of new ones for you to deal with. Here, their top product picks.
