You may need something stronger than the Neutrogena products to get rid of your red marks. I'm not sure exactly what percentage AHA they contain, but it probably is not as much as what you would need. I used Alpha Hydrox 10% glycolic gel for quite a while, and it took several months to notice any kind of difference in my red marks, and that was a product that is much stronger than the Neutrogena ones. Any product will take a while to fade red marks, but I honestly don't think the Neutrogena ones are going to be strong enough to make much of a difference. I just looked at the Neutrogena website, and I couldn't find a percentage of AHA in the products, which means that it is probably a very small amount. Glycolic acid usually needs to be at least 8% to really give results.
