Aloe Vera gel really worked for a while. Now I'm using that whole egg mask thing and its doing wonders. Plus it got rid of my accutane tomato face, which was GREAT!

redmarks, hmm lets see. GA peels worked pretty good. jessners' peel sort of helped but i have not yet done a full face peel. taking vitamins help pretty well also. i've been taking rosehips but havent seen dramatic results yet but its only been a month.

The two main things are: Time and REGULAR Exfoliation (I use SA everyday, as well as a gentle scrub). Also Aloe Vera Gel helped in the past, not currently using it though.

Synthetic brush exfoliation and Green Cream!

Red marks and old brown marks are gone. Freckles are gone. Facial mole has faded into near-invisibility. Facial lines have smoothed out. I'm loving this.

Click on the "Green Cream" link in my signature to go to the product home page.

You can also find product reviews on makeup alley.

After that, if you have questions, feel free to PM me. I've been using it for 2 months.

What is working for me right now is the new 'Acnefree Scar Fade and Erase' kit. I didn't find a link to it online. I looked on www.acnefree.com and I didn't find it there. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. I did buy it at a Walmart though.

What worked for me: nothing so far. Im still on the search.

What hasn't: GA peels- yes they actually worked a bit so I guess it isn't really fair of me to put them in here. The thing is my skin is very sensitive and now can't handle acids. Since I had very severe acne, my skin needs at leat 50% for ANY effect whatsoever, and my skin just cant take that : (

The other thing that didnt work for me was Azelaic acid. It started to work- but then I had another allergic reaction to it. Sucks.

Lemon Juice- That really stung and didn't help at all.

vbeam, depending on how bad your marks were...it could take as little as 2 treatments.

Could it really be gone in 2 treatments!?! I used to have decent skin. Then I had an extreme allergic reaction to AcneFree that broke out like my entire face, especially my cheeks. It took me 4 months, but the acne is now almost completely gone. I just need to get rid of these red marks on my cheeks and I'll be fine. They've faded alot in the last month, but they're driving me crazy!! How much does vbeam cost?

When do you use it if your on Dan's regimen? Do you still have acne or are you clear? I'm just interested in knowing since I have a bottle of the stuff that I bought last year, but stopped using because I didn't want it interferring with my regimen, plus I know you shouldn't use SA with BP.

15 percent AHA lotion at night,

10 percent BHA lotion at night.

Using a personal microdermabrasion every 2 days as well.

yea i know ....im on the regimen as well... and im not completely clear but my acne is rather "in control"

i just use it in globs directly on top of each mark ... it makes the mark peel ...when this happens (maybe after 1-2 days) the mark appears lighter...i do this 1-2(once morning, one evening....though i think its best to just do once a day)times before applying the Bp , followed by my moisturizer...it may be a lil irritating to the spot but it works...n its not breaking me out....so we'll see how it goes...just sharing my experience .
