Is it possible for red marks to fade naturally? How long does it take? I've had some of my red marks for up to 6 months and they have yet to fade.

yes red marks almost always fade naturally over time but in extreme cases can take years to fade.

I have large patches of red marks on both my cheeks and its been about 4 months now and they are still there, although i have been using a beautyskin lamp and recently ive seen noticeable improvement with them

From what I read about them, most should fade within a year. But yes, it can take longer in extreme cases. I'm at 5 months and still have a bunch of them too.

I am on tretinoin, but that hasn't been working, so I was put on benzamycin too and now my red marks look redder! Are they going to take even longer to fade now? I can't even find something that fades them.

if I didn't do anything they can take anywhere from 6 months to a year. I recently started on MaMa lotion and my scars faded a lot within a month. I only have some stubborn marks left.

Yep, all the docs Ive seen told me it will fade on their own with time. Could take up to 2 years, but within 6 months you should usually see noticeable improvement in the red marks.

Oh my goodness! I do no think they will ever go away!

Hi leslie, do you have a lot of red marks? Have you tried to use concealer to conceal them?

I have red marks also .. for months.. try to be patient.. :)

I am thinking they are NEVER going to go away too, but try to let them be and let it heal.. have you been to a derm?
