Brown marks...left after scabs - how do I treat?

Recommended Posts


I had back acne at some point and I was rubbing my skin real hard (so it was thin) and when I picked my pimples (not infected, not inflamed pimples) it tore my skin a bit and left red marks, which turned into brown marks after tanning. They do not look like red marks left after some moderate or severe acne. Its perfectly smooth skin with brownish patches. It has been 12 months since I last picked my back and shoulders, but these brown are still visible. They faded, but not by all that much. What can I do about the? I heard these can last up to 18 months and I guess I should see them almost gone by the time its summer? Is there a treatment for those?
