I got lot of pimples on my face, and i want to make my skin smooth with out any pimples or any black spots.
Acne can be a problem that can affect your confidence and lead to problems such as scarring. It doesn’t also tend to be a problem that fixes itself with time in all cases. We usually use a combination of topical therapies, laser therapy, light therapy, and medication to treat acne at our clinic. The ‘black spots’ you mention are usually a result of pigmentation caused by the inflammation from acne (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), and usually occur on those with darker skin types. In most cases , this does fade by itself, but we do have some lightening creams to help speed its removal.
