Please Help!! Acne scars cant fade

I was perscripted minocycline to treat my acne on cheecks two months ago and I have to say it did work on active pimples as expected... But i was also told that acne scars would fade in time as before. Now i have zero to one active pimples on my whole face but acne scars havent even faded a bit. Im feeling like minocycline is the cause because before this treatment all scars would fade in a week for sure and sometimes in a month but no scar has faded for 2 months... I have also taken 1000mg of vitamin c for this since 2 weeks before, that have not improved anything yet. All scars are perfectly flat except 1 or 2 and its all like post infammatory hyperpigmentation. What do you suggest?

But how much time?  It has been a month and nothing has changed..  Before minocycline everything would fade after some weeks but not now. And if not scars what then?

In general they will calm over time. Perhaps try to drink more water and potentially take some zinc supplements as they are high in antioxidant and I strongly suggest using a product called genius nightly resurfacing pads by Arbonne ({LINK REMOVED}). This has helped me in more ways than one (+ the 'clear future' acne skincare range)

Why do you always seem like you're okay with still having marks after 8-9 months? Don't you think that's more than enough time for them to fade? Do you even want them to fade?
Why would avoiding the sun and using sunscreen help with the marks? How does the sun affect them? Edited by Iahmeeobop

I have the same type of red marks on my cheeks.  Have had them for over a year... Glycolic acid only makes them more red in my opinion.  At this point,  I need to figure out what the best medical procedure is to get rid of them.

i am not okay with then and also i dont think sun exposure affects so much ..but i am having these marks for like so many months ihave tried enough but cant do anything if u want to fade them fast have any vbeam or ematrix treatment .. all i can say is that .. natural healing may sometimes takes years .. i have seen some people having acne marks forever and for some it just disappears .. so i cant say anything
