Though I'm not sure the difference between the two but from what I understand a red marks are the "red dots" that the acne leaves behind. A scar are those indents in the skin that are left behind when the acne has been picked, etc..

yup either dents or raised skin (due to excess collagen).....there is a post by oursfan at the top of the scars page that explains the different types.......

redmarks are just hyperpigmentation that will go away with time (though the process can be sped up)
