Exactly that. After a pimple has gone, how long does it take for people's leftover red/brown marks to fade?? Weeks, months, years etc???

iut all depends on your metabolism, really, i dont think it would take years with any normal person, unless theyve picked at it, and fiddled with it excessively, even then it should only be a week or so, but i still have very mild scarring from were i picked at it, for about half a year afterwards, but it fades..and they can easily be covered up.

My dermatologist told me that they can take up to 6 - 12 months to fade. I guess it depends on how severe it is. Mine are moderate and I've been using retin A for a year but they still havent fadely completely right now I am using tazorac which is supposed to fade them and use Cover Girl Make up to cover them.

Whatever you use, dont expect it to work over night..stick with the product for a few months and see how it works.

when I was in my early teens and had acne the red spots would clear up in a week or two but as I get older the slower they heal (around 6 months). I also find the less pimples I have the quicker they heal, while the more "active" pimples I have the slower the old ones heal.
