Patient

Q: I have been suffering from acne since puberty, I am 21 now. I now know how to contain and manage my acne and prevent breakouts but how do I get rid of the dark spots that has been left behind? I've had the spots since high school and have been trying to get rid of them forever now and its makes me self-conscious to take pictures. So what products can I use to help fade the spots and get my clear skin back? I've tried proactiv+ and that doesn't help fade them. Are there any drugstore products that work? Would a chemical peel work?
