Unwanted acne breakouts can leave behind dark spots on the skin that can last for many months. This is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and while it is not technically acne scarring, some people think of it that way. The KitavaMD Acne Kit is formulated with ingredients to not only control and prevent current and future breakouts, but it also contains ingredients - such as willow bark extract, vitamin C and licorice extract - that can brighten the appearance of these unwanted dark spots left behind from prior blemishes.
KitavaMD is not intended to treat deeper acne scarring, such as ice pick scars, rolling scars or box car scars. For those with deeper scarring or severe pigmentation, we recommend seeing your local board-certified dermatologist to discuss stronger treatment options.
The above recommendations should not be used in place of the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider. Always best to consult your individual physician prior to using.
