Hey, approach your treatment HOLISTICALLY (by medication and by MODIFYING LIFESTYLE). Else nothing works. Also, because you get medical procedures like peels done at  a salon please read these 2 links 1. : http://www.skinmatra.com/single-post/2016/07/03/Skin-Troubles-Here-is-WHAT-NOT-TO-DO   2.http://www.skinmatra.com/single-post/2016/09/17/Listen-to-your-skin-talk-Here-is-how

Greetings. Pimples may often leave spots especially if not treated or if we burst pimples or pick them. You'll need skin lightening creams for a specified duration to reduce the marks , and this could also be dealt with chemical peeling. Also you must use a sunscreen to prevent darkening of the spots. For scars, creams may not work n you may need procedures like microneedling, microneedling rf, fractional lasers, prp or subscision or a combination of these. Send in your pictures if you need further assistance. Or see a dermatologist near you and discuss the same with him.MEDICAL TREATMENT OF SCARS AND PIGMENTATION IS DONE BY QUALIFIED DERMATOLOGISTS AND NOT IN SALONS.! Hope this helps. Warm regards.
