We’re here to share what we know — but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider if you have questions.

How Curology can help with acne scars

So you’ve been using your Curology cream as directed — maybe making some skin-friendly lifestyle changes along the way — and FINALLY, your skin has cleared up.


But don’t stop now! It’s important to keep using your Curology cream, even when you don’t have active acne.

We know. But hear us out.

Like any kind of therapy, preventing future breakouts is an ongoing maintenance process, not a one-and-done cure. Plus, the last thing you want after going through a breakout is to see unfriendly reminders left behind. In addition to treating and preventing breakouts, the ingredients in your Curology cream help prevent and reduce the marks, dark spots, and scars that pimples can leave behind.

Even if you’re lucky enough not to have post-acne marks, it’s still important to keep using your Curology cream every day. Besides preventing future breakouts, the ingredients in Curology also help prevent fine lines and wrinkles!

Scars are harder to treat with a topical skincare product alone, but daily use of your Curology cream will speed up the fading of post-acne brown spots, aka hyperpigmentation. Check out our in-depth Guide to Acne Scars for more need-to-know info.

You can always ask your Curology provider if you want to adjust your mix to help more with post-acne upkeep. If your acne is totally in remission, they may update your formula to focus more on fading hyperpigmentation. That’s the beauty of Curology: it’s all about you.
