Have You Noticed How Red Marks Can Look Indented In Certain Lighting?

Recommended Posts

Posted

I have some red marks on my face from a recent cystic outbreak. Sometimes they look smooth but other times I'm sure I can see an indent in certain lights. Is it just because they are a darker colour than my skin so it makes then look indented? In the same way as darker colours look further in the distance. Your opinions are wcome. I guess I'm just trying to convince myself that the red marks will disappear and not leave an indented scar.

This is exactly what i'm experiencing too. I'm curious if this is normal too cause I always hear the "the red marks are not scars, they will go away"

Essentially: Do hyperpigmentation supposed to look a bit indented in certain lightings?

they may be indented a bit, and in a brighter white light (e.g. sunlight), it's more noticeable. i dont think it's permanent though cause i noticed that before on my face, although over time it went away
