How long to get rid of this hyperpigmentation/red marks?

Recommended Posts

Most of my acne is gone, I just have alot of red marks and hyperpigmentation left, most on my right side. I have included two pictures of the right side of my face.

Do you think I can get rid of these within 2 months, before school starts?

Thanks

They are not even that dark. Don't worry about it as much. They probably will fade on their own in 2 months.

Not too bad mate. I'd suggest perhaps a good quality Glycolic Acid day or night cream. A brand called Jan Marini make a product called Bioglycolic, that would probably work quite nicely.

Besides that, i'd suggest gentle treatment. No harsh washes, a moisturiser like Cetaphil and an SPF cream.

i think i have to disagree with u guys , mines are pretty similar and they've been there for around 3 months and have faded only slightly not that much 30% or something :( but people differ from others im prolly just a slow healer

exfoliate and sue neosporin that should get rid of them in no time. But if you have really stubborn ones like i do on my chin .. they still won't all be gone even after 8 or 9 months of doing that.

I seriously doubt 2 months are sufficient. I had mine for over 12 months before I applied scar remover with vit a plus allantoin. I've managed to fade it by at least 50% so far.
