Do the red marks eventually go away?

Recommended Posts

I've been on the regimen about 2 months now, and am doing very well. I have a question, though. I do have quite a few red marks left over on my cheeks. I know red marks take longer to fade on the regimen, but they DO eventually fade right? They aren't always going to be there?

If you look in the frequently asked questions it says this:

Q:  How do I get rid of the red marks left after the blemish goes away?

A:  Here is a quote from the American Academy of Dermatology and Roche Laboratories:

    "A red mark on the skin called an erythematous macule will fade in four to six months after an acne outbreak - but it may get temporarily redder when your skin gets hot or when you exercise. This red macule is not a scar, and is not permanent. In a dark skinned person, the macule may appear as a darker patch on the skin. This is not a scar, either."
