Benzyol Peroxide does that for some people, like a side effect. I used BP for 3 years and I've had my marks for 6+ years. Use with caution.

You may find some use in Manuka honey, or Tumeric for those marks.

I used Epiduo (which has BP in it) and took Monodox 2x a day. I also exfoliated almost everyday. My marks faded significantly by 6 months...they're not COMPLETELY gone but they are virtually invisible unless you inspect my skin now.

Basically it depends on the person. Some people's skin heals faster than others.

[CURRENT REGIMEN]

AM:

Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel (European version) + Clarisonic Mia

Apply CeraVe AM Moisturizer w/ SPF 30

Apply Aczone (dapsone) 
 

 

PM:

Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel + Clarisonic Mia
Apply CeraVe PM Moisturizer 
Apply Epiduo (adapalene + benzoyl peroxide)
50 mg of Spironolactone 

 

[CURRENT STATUS]
90% clear

Well back while I was in school and my hyperpigmentation was bad, I used Neutrogena Blackhead Scrub because it was all I had. Now I use the Olay Pro-X Cleansing System and it works really well.

Benzoyl peroxide made my red marks last longer.

Yeah, I noticed BP was good for drying out the acne, but the marks would last for years! So frustrating. Now I use the Olay Pro-X Brush for exfoliation (love it!) I don't recommend this for everyone because it can be dangerous, but if the marks ever get really bad you can do a TCA peel. I was really happy with the results when I did it.

My Regimen

Morning:
*Apply Olay Regenerist Micropurifying Foaming wash & use Clarisonic
(Love, love, love this thing!!)
*Estee Lauder Day Wear Moisturizer

Night:
*Olay Regenerist Micro-Purifying Foaming Cleanser
*Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream

Miscellaneous:
*Yaz BC *TCA Peels (15%) *Steam treatment *Psyllium Husk Caps

Current Status: Clear

I use tretinoin cream and vitamin c serum for redmarks, but I have been super pleased with TCA peels in the past. I think using 15% (1-2 layer) spot treating has been the best for dark spots. I agree that they're not for everyone and can be dangerous too.

People say it can take years for red marks to go away, but I think it really depends on your type of acne. I find that if I get primarily whiteheads, the red marks they leave behind seem to fade faster in comparison to "deeper" spots such as cysts. I also find that on some areas of your face, red marks seem to heal faster. For example, for whatever reason, if I get a spot above my lip area, the mark seems to be gone in almost a week. But thats just me.

Differin + AHA 8-12% daily will FADE your marks within 6 months.
Also you may want to add some bio/emu/jojoba oil to your regular moist.
