How Long For These Things To Fade?

Recommended Posts

Hey Anton...I've read that it can take 6 months to a year for red marks/hyperpigmentation to fade naturally, although I have a few lingering red marks from really bad cysts I had years ago. Have you tried using AHA+? My son is using it and after only a few applications we are seeing a difference. AHA helps speed up the fading process.

Overall your skin looks in good shape! :) Better than mine at your age haha. Glad to hear your teen hormones are leveling out. So no new breakouts or at least less than before??

hey delovely! damn that sounds like a really long time. Oh well not much i can do about it other than use AHAs. I have glycolic acid cream which i may use

breakouts are a lot less yeah, I've noticed that my oiliness is slowly getting less so thats basically a sign that my hormones are evening out. Then again can't really have 'absolutely no breakouts' until im like 21, and honestly im fine getting the occasional zit Thanks a lot for your insights!

Hi - don't forget to use sunscreen!

Sun exposure will prolong the amount of time it takes for the PIH to heal.

yup i use spf 30 sunscreen daily!
