Help with my post acne marks!

Recommended Posts

Hi! I've been doing a lot of research about my red post acne marks on my cheeks from what I think is cystic acne, I am almost 16 and I feel very self conscious about my skin and often find myslef crying about it. I want to be able to go out without makeup on and feel confident in my skin but these marks won't go away! I have recently purchased proactive and it has helped a lot with my pimples, but I still have the red spots so I got clean and clears spot treatment for acne marks. My mom won't take me to a dermatologist but I can't stand the sight of the red marks. Should I continue using the spot treatment? What can I do to get rid of these marks??

Please checkout the faq we made to this frequently asked question. They are either PIE or PIH, you test by pressing on them. They are not scars but wounds from acne. They take a long time to heal and fade.
