Okay, might be a dumb question...and I apologize if this was already discussed because I didn't use the search function and I'm too lazy to research...

Is a blemish and a red mark (hyperpigmentation) the same thing? Or are they different?

The reason I ask is I have moderate acne, mostly on my cheeks. I think most of the active acne is gone, but I still have a lot of red marks left from the active acne. It's pretty recent acne too...so the marks haven't been there that long. From what I read, it takes a long time to get rid of hyperpigmentation. If there is a difference, then I think they may be blemishes...which is better than hyperpigmentation right?

I don't know...can someone clarify? Thanks.
