Differin: How long does it take for scars/marks to go away?

5 posts in this topic

I've been on differin for almost two months, and most of my acne has gone away leaving behind ugly scars and red marks (i have light asian skin, so it's very noticeable). I'm thankful that i've seen improvement, but I was just wondering how long does it take for the scars to fill in, and the red marks to fade away?

Thanks :ninja:

Thanks for the info! Yeah, i'll try to stay positive. I have moderately-severe acne, so hopefully it goes away soon. I've been using cosmetics to help with the redness and it doesn't seem to cause any new breakouts. Do you think it's still safe to use? If it slows down the scar healing process, I'll try to stay away from it. I do know that it doesn't make my acne worse, and the cosmetic line was made especially for acne.

I'd say as long as the products are non-comedogenic, you'll be fine, especially since the line was made for individuals with acne. If you're still concerned, you can also take them to your dermatologist and discuss the matter. I've done that with a few things I use and the input was really helpful.

Okay, thanks a lot! I'll wait it out. When it reaches october 13-14, it will officially be two months since i've started the regimen. Hopefully there's improvement.
