Dan, red marks.

Recommended Posts

Well its been 4 months on this regimen and I have the same red marks that I did when I started and they do not heal!!!

I remember you saying they do go away but its been 4 months and no fading at all!!! I quite a bit of small indented red spots, and two larger ones... will they heal with more time.

BTW I do not breakout a single pimple anymore but the scars are really stubborn.

Macules, or these red marks you're speaking of, sometimes take many months to fade. Have they faded at all? Up to a year is needed sometimes.

Good news is that you're not getting any new acne that will make new red marks.

Sierra, I am EXACTLY like you. I think i will try Desitin (that stuff for babys) to try and fade these red marks. Come to think of it, when i started the regimen, i had mostly red marks... i thought the regimen helped red marks but it doesn't :D

Try to use products with ZINC OXIDE and TITANIUM OXIDE, they can lighten you red marks. Hence, you can have peel of BHA(salicylic acid) as it can penetrate into your skin to reval newer skin.

You can also try products that contains retinol acetate because retinol acetate tend to make your skin to restore itself faster...just be patient.

PATIENT is the word to acne scar....ROME is not build in ONE day..ONE year...but it takes a period of time....

You can read my articles about mask in the section of
