I was on accutane for a year and I still use benzoyl peroxide. The thing thats bothering me is that my acne is almost all gone but I have these red marks left over from when my acne was bad.. :( Do you think these lil red spots will eventually go away?

Btw having red marks over doesn't mean that those red marks will be scars will it? Because I don't have any holes left over in my skin or do scars only begin to show a while after your acne is gone?

don't worry they all eventually go, bp slows down the healing process.

Hi Dolph. I don't think those will scar (Imo) but they will take awhile to heal. I'm also on Accutane and have been exfoliating with a microdermabrasion sponge, using the Neutrogena acne mark fading peel, and finally using Vita K for blotchy skin. Most people would def say that's too many product for the face but its def working well for me. I agree... whenever I take a pic without BM on or fake tanner I totally freakout, also whenever I'm in different light than I normally am. Ah... lol, You look really cute from that one pic and have beautiful eyes... try not to worry about it. Good luck. :)

well it looks a lot worse on camera but in rl people say my skin looks fine.. when you look up close theres no holes or "craters" in my skin either just a some red marks, so I guess it will heal over time. I should just be happy with how much I've improved after being on accutane and BP for a year. :)

In my experience, no holes or dips means they eventually go all away.. bye bye red spots.

I would stop using BP, they make the marks take longer to heal.

hehe.. thx. Yeah its my natural color. Anyways I started using my new tubes of benzoyl peroxide treatment called Benza Clin. I'm starting to think that my old tubes of BP were getting too old to be useful since I got them all about 2 years ago. I gave up diet coke.. Last week I was drinking about 2 bottles of diet coke a day untill someone I know mentioned that the caffeine might be making my acne worse. Now I'm trying to drink as much water as I can for my skin.. and I guess it's helping

oh ur lucky it does seem to be getting better. not in my case though. I'd have to say my acne actually has faded. but I have a lot of scars and most of those scars came from red marks.

I guess I'm lucky though because if I was prone to scarring my entire cheeks would have scars on them but there are days when they look nice and smooth.
