What is good for removing pimple spots?

Several ways of removing pimple spots are known. Before using any method to remove them, it is essential to consult a dermatologist, who will indicate the most appropriate treatment.

Some of the possibilities are:


Peeling is a widely used method for removing skin blemishes.

There is the type that uses chemical compounds (acids) to peel the skin, renewing it over a few sessions. It is a very efficient method for recent blemishes and even works to remove remnants of acne.

There is also physical peeling, known as dermabrasion or microdermabrasion. It is a surgical procedure in which the skin is sanded with a specific instrument to treat scars and spots on the skin.

The result depends on the severity of the brand, taking an average of 4 to 6 sessions to reach the expected result.


Another known procedure is laser treatment. There are many types of this treatment, varying according to the scar or stain to be eliminated.

The most used laser for this is abrasive fractionated CO2. It performs a burn on the skin, which, when healing, will have the most uniform color and texture.

The depth of action of the laser will be defined by the professional who is performing the procedure. It usually takes 2 to 5 to achieve the expected result.

Other essential care

A good way to gradually reduce blemishes, reduce the incidence of acne and improve skin health is to adopt some essential skin care, such as:

  • Exfoliate your skin once a week;
  • Wash your face frequently;
  • Always use sunscreen.

In addition, many ways are known to remove stains with homemade methods. From apple cider vinegar to tomatoes, several ingredients seem to help remove stains, either because they contain acidic or lightening properties.

However, these methods are not proven to be effective. In addition, it is necessary to be very careful with ingredients such as lemon and hydrogen peroxide, which can further stain the skin and impair the treatment.

How to remove pimple spots from the face on dark skin?

Acne also leaves marks on dark skin. Because the amount of melanin is greater, the dermis is more easily stained.

Therefore, the ideal is to use treatments that are not too aggressive to the skin. The laser, depending on the way it is used, may even end up increasing the area of ​​the stain.

However, other methods can have effective results on brown skin. Microneedling, for example, is an aesthetic procedure that uses needles to remove stains and can be used safely, as long as it is dermatologically oriented.

Moreover, care for dark skin should be the same: exfoliation, sun protection and hydration are also ways to keep it healthy and prevent blemishes.

In any case, it is essential to consult a dermatology professional to indicate the best way to remove pimple spots from the face, especially with extra care that needs to be taken.
