I know this is totally off topic but can I ask what the chinese medicine was. It seems it really helped your skin. And btw congrats on such an amazing progress. I cannot give you advice on the aha thing because I am not using it personally. But I hope somebody is going to help. i would really appreciate your answer. Thank you

Implementing the AHA now would be probably the perfect time. You're clear and are just left with some light red marks. Go for it! :)

Pulsed Dye Laser will get rid of that 100% completely in 10 minutes + 2 weeks healing time.

AHA may improve it 50% over 6 months...

Not a problem! I really like giving my two cents about acne and what worked for me and what didn't. Good luck with the AHA. I hope you won't break out with it. I didn't so I was really happy about that.

Here I have a simple and guaranteed solution for this after doing it you will feel really that's what you want.. Dabbing either toothpaste or tea tree oil on these spots before bedtime, you can also do a face masking at least once every week and also eating healthy and getting plenty of sleep and plenty of drink water..

Toothpaste is terrible advice for anyone. It may shrink the individual pimples but it does nothing for acne or the face overall. Also, while on the regimen TTO or any other acne treatment is a no-no. Your lifestyle advice is spot on though for overall health and well being which may translate into better skin.

After cleansing, I wait for like five minutes for my face to dry and then dab a bit of AHA on my acne and red marks on my face. Then I wait about 10-15 for the AHA to absorb and then I continue with the rest of the regimen, BP, then Moisturizer + AHA.

I find that applying AHA before the BP helps a lot with red marks fading away much faster.

A bit runnier than usual, but just make sure when you spot treat to not put too much AHA and also give it time to really absorb into the skin.

Don't get worried about it getting runny though. It will still work.

I do my full AHA routine every 3 nights. I do the same thing, one full pump of AHA. I don't add any jojoba oil though, but you still can if you want to. The amount works well for me.
