Hi. I'm new to this forum though I persue this site quite often. I am 22 now and I have been plagued with acne for almost most of my teenage to adult life. I used Accutane when I was in high school and my mother has tried every home remedy she could think of.

Luckily in the last few month my break outs have occured a lot less and for the most part I want to say I am mostly active acne free (save the few that come with the monthly annoyance ) My skin is very sensative though and I have noticed if I travel or endure any kind of stress my face is the first place that feel the effects.

My main problem now is the tiny red spots that are still visable on my face. I assume this is scaring from my many years with acne. I was wondering if there was a way to get rid of these scars completely or at least make them fade faster. ( I am assuming that they will go away with time on their own..they will right??? :unsure: ) I used the vingear and water method and my mom inisists that it helped. Unfortunately I got lazy i in the last few weeks and have not kept up with that regiment. Does anyone know if this does indeed help or is it just a placebo that makes me feel better at the end of the night. :blink:

So I guess what I am driving at is I have finally managed to get acne under control but what about those pesky red spots? Will I be plagued with the memory of my acne forever?!?!? :blink: (Please say no! ) What can I do to 1) make the spots disappear forever and ever or 2) at least aid them in their disapperace a.ka. make them go away faster

Any help on this will be much much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!
