Has all this talk of lasers, chemical peels and surgery freaked you out? There is another pain-free solution. Do nothing. Live with your scars. Many people have and have even become famous faces in Hollywood and on the music circuit. Think Kevin Bacon, Seal, Bryan Adams and Richard Burton.

Scars can give one character, why do you think that the stars mentioned above never had their acne scars treated? It certainly wasn’t because they didn’t have the money!

Alicia Keys and Cameron Diaz also have bad acne scars, we just don’t see them thanks to the wonders of photoshop and professional make up artists.

Weigh up the pros and cons. One major con will be the expense of such treatments. Your medical aid might not pay, because facial surgery could be considered as cosmetic.

On the other hand, if your face is severely disfigured and you feel that your scars have ruined your confidence and your life, treatment may just be worth the huge financial outlay.
