I'm a 17 year old male who has had the same acne marks on my skin for about two years now. I don't consider them scars because they don't look like caved in spots on my face. Therefore I think they are just makes, there just red faded spots on my face. I've been prone to get acne on my forehead every since I was a little but because I've used massive amounts of product on my skin over the years and finally I got the initial acne to go away. But I still have these marks. They are located on my forehead, and the top right and left of my forehead. I'm looking for any solutions or guidance on how to get rid of these marks once and for all. Anything helps, thank you.

I believe they are PIE, the after effects of acne. If you press on them and they go away they are PIE and if they do not go away they are PIH. Depending on this test is the treatment outcome. We made a faq with lots of treatments to this common question here.

Goto the derm and ask for retin A or tretinorin gel for cell turnover. Ask if they think hydroquinone aka skin bleaching cream would also be good. If these don't work laser is very effective for pigment issues vbeam and quadrostar pro.

Hi, acne scars develop as a result of the inflammation of acne lesions. There are numerous cosmetic procedures available.

Chemical peels: This procedure removes the top layer of old skin with the use of specific chemicals.
Dermabrasion: This procedure removes the top layers of skin with a special instrument that creates friction. Please consult with the doctor. Thanks
