well like every other person I've picked my pimples on my forehead, and now there are dark spots or "hyper pigmentation" on my forehead, i have very mild acne like a pimple here and there and the worst of it are all dark spots now. I've searched the forum but are dark spots the same as red marks? can i use aqua glycolic to treat dark spots as well?

No there different, dark marks are like scars, red marks are just trapped blood under the skin which is part of the healing process. I have dark marks too under my chin, highly annoying, i find glycolic acid the best for fading them but what ever you use it takes time. People say hydroquoine (sp?) is good for dark marks but its not available here in the UK so I have no experiance.
