Approximately,how long does it take for red marks to fade?

Some take weeks and some take months. I've noticed that the bigger ones or prior blemishes that had a lot of trauma (picking) last much longer than the small ones or blemishes that were left alone.

Try using AHA. It really does help fade redmarks. It does for me anyway. My cleanser has AHA in it

A lot of times I hear people say on this site that if a red mark lasts over a year then it's a scar.

I say that's not really true sometimes,because I think some of my old marks were there for more than a year.

depends how big the pimple was and where it was located. I've had terrible whiteheads on my chin but the marks clear up within days. I can get a small inflamed pimple on my cheek and the mark will last 6 months+.

Your treatments affect your marks too. If you do BP or accutane it will last alot longer.

You could ask your doctor if using a glycolic acid cleanser product while on Accutane would be ok, or you could just try it yourself and stop if you notice irritation. You'd be able to use the cleanser after you've finished your accutane course and have fully recovered from the side effects.

See my signature for Glycolic acid product recommendations (some are cleansers). I love Alpha Hydrox Souffle myself but it might be too strong for someone on Accutane.

Good luck with your course and don't neglect your body or your diet! :)

half acv,half water...use it as a toner,so I just squirt it on a cotton ball and wipe it all over my face.I waited like,a month after accutane before using it though. Skin on tane is very sensitive. You might want to dilluted it even more with water depending on how your skin handles it.

Depends. Now that I'm using a redmark-preventative method most of my acne does not leave redmarks that last more than a couple weeks, but I have a ton of older ones that have been on my face way over six months... hoping the salt water from the beach this summer will help speed their treatment up. :confused:

does anybody know if baking soda will also make things better or not? in addition to the apple cider vinegar, of course.
