Hello, I was just wondering what was the difference between scars and hyperpigmentation, and how to  tell which ones you have?

Scars are indentations and hyperpigmentation means darkening of the skin--so like red marks.

No it's not. Can take months to fade though.

Thank you! I'm really self conscious because a lot of the time my hyperpigmentation is much worse than my acne.
