Retin-A Micro!! Give it a shot.. I've only been on it for a week, but it's already beginning to work on redmarks/acne... Only downside is the initial breakout cuz everything is coming to the surface... Give it 8-12 weeks if you can get it prescribed and odds are it will work.

I'll ask for it next time I see my doctor for a checkup, how much does it run? Last time I checked my insurance didn't cover it.

Read the faq and stuff. Personally, I think that peels are the best way.

Q: How can I get rid of my red marks / hyperpigmentation / brown marks / dark marks?

A: There are several different approaches to help this process. You may have to experiment to find which works best for you. The effectiveness of these treatments varies and they may have to be used in conjunction with other treatments for best results:

Prescription approach:

* Generally recommended: A Retinoid (i.e. Retin-A) & Hydroquinone*

Non-prescription approaches:

· The tape method of exfoliation

· The vinegar method of exfoliation

. Apply an Alpha Hydroxy Acid peel (i.e. Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, TCA, etc.)

· Apply a Beta-Hydroxy Acid solution

· Vita-K for Blotchy Skin

. Mandelic Acid Serum
