has anyone successfully removed their red marks for good?

I dont mean like lighten. Mine has lightened. But they're still there. Like they cannot be gone for good. Sometimes they seem to have vanished but sometimes they seem to come back again. If you have success, what did you use?

I think its more a case of whilst we’re still applying BP (if you are) they will remain and take longer and longer to disappear! One of my mates stopped using BP and after about a month the redmarks had near enough gone.

Some marks that I had for around 7/8 months disappeared by themselves and some fresher ones I had (1-3 months) faded completely last year when I used ACV last year for a month or so. These ones were very red and then all of a sudden faded so I guess that most red marks have a chance of fading if left alone or given light treatments like exfoliation and the like if they are newer (like 3 years or less).

It is worth noting that the only marks I have are on my cheek as ones on forehead, jaw and chin areas go in few months. I think most people find that the ones on their cheeks take longer to heal than anywhere else.

Most people who have completely gotten rid of them, or just gave up - probably don't frequent this board anymore.

Using AHA's have helped completely rid myself of some redmarks - the others are getting there.

I’ve got so many red marks on my chin and cheek…its almost as if I have a full face of acne they are that prominent, and have been since they arrived (December, when I started the regimen), I never got red marks or any marks after a zit when I was on Proactive.. It’s without a doubt the BP that is prolonging them, but annoyingly the longer they are there, and the more BP I put on to kill the acne, the darker they are becoming…very frustrating, as I can’t wear anything to cover them up, I’ve tried that EveryDay Minerals and it broke me out.
