Are acne scars red sometimes?

Recommended Posts

I have red marks on my face and I'm not quite sure how much of it is post acne hyper pigmentation, and how much of it is scarring.

Are acne scars sometimes red? My acne just cleared up about 1 or 2 months ago, so I may have some more healing time left.

And do some acne scars go away on their own?? I wonder because sometimes when I get a scar on my arm or somewhere, it fades over time. Even some deeper ones...I don't put anything on them, they just go away on their own.

for me at least, most of the time they were redmarks but some ended up being scars and they've been fading slowly (slow as in over a period of YEARS) with just taking good care of my skin. Most of them never completely disappear tho.
