can scars...

red marks are considered a form of scar and they heal within 6 months to a year. could a shallow scar heal on it's own in this time also? just wondering. i can't tell if i have scars yet because of the red marks but, if i do have them...perhaps, they will heal along with the red marks. i'm 19 btw, still pretty young, if that helps.

Red marks aren't scars, Scars are indents with damage to the underlying skin structure. This makes them less likely to heal.

However, sometimes they do heal. I have had scars completely disappear on my body. Anything is possible I guess.

Well, my mum said he had acne when he was in his teens.

She said he had some scarring, not to bad but noticable, he is now in his fifties and when I last saw him he had no scarring what so ever.

As long as your health is good scars can go away, they really can or improve dramatically because skin renews itself so little by little and very slowly the newer skin replaces the damaged. I've had several shallow scars go away and a few scars that looked horrible decrease dramatically, I mean improve by 60-70% all on their own...If your health is bad, once it gets better, improvement will still happen. My very bad scar improved tremendously within 2-3 years without me doing anything, not even mild exfoliation. If a scar is super deep it probably will never go away entirely but scars will always improve, more for somethan others.

superfcial redmarks go away within 6 months, deeper ones may be broken capillaries...

That's why chemical peels are considered effective, they basically speed up/boost skin renewal and regeneration and a series can really improve skin.

In response to your question, "Can scars heal on their own?"

I hope and pray it is so.

So does brown rice really works and are we talking about those unpolish rice or are we talking about a different kind of rice?

eating hale food is good for your skin and your whole body. What really is bad for scars is sun. They make scars dramatical worse. actually there is no treatment that wokrs 100% for scars. every ablative treatment (Laser / dermabrasio / peeling) might make scars bigger, so be careful!
