Hey Taina - I really hope you check back to read this.

Anywho, first you need to find out if they are scars, or macules. Macules are flatten red marks that are ususally quite irritated and can stay there for up to a year. Scars are usually brown, and do not improve on their own.

If you have macules, it is important to stop anymore acne for developing, I would suggest requesting something in the nature of Doxycyline. Macules or scars WON'T go away from acne scrubs seeing how they technically are no longer blemishes.

Once you decide what they are, there are a few different treatments. For scars, try using Mederma gel. (Over the counter.) It will take time, but sometimes results are incredible.

If its a macule, I'd suggest the Asprin Mask with 100% Aloe Vera once or twice a day.

Remember it won't just dissappear on its own instantly, but with your help it will eventually fade away.

(Also, cleansing and moisturizing are important even for you!)
