What can I do to get rid of dark spots left over from cystic acne? The skin feels very smooth and normal now, but the dark spots refuse to diminish. I'm on retin A and minocyclin....when can I expect this crap to go away? T_T is there anything else i can do? i'm putting on moisturizer and sunscreen and blah blah...but i'm really tempted to go out and sunburn so i can peel off the skin myself but obviously that's not a smart idea....lol

EXPERTS, please correct me! If you are on minocycline, then the dark spots could be hyperpigmentation. If i were you, I'd either stop taking it or reduce your dosage. DON'T GO OUT IN THE SUN ON MINOCYCLINE. it's just gonna make things worse. and if you continue to take mino a mosturizer with an spf rating is a good idea.
