Red spots?

I have some red spots on my face when i had had acne before and they seem to take a long time to go away?? What causes them and how do you get rid of them faster?

Re: Red spots?

Well, they're simply red spots where your acne formerly was. I don't know why they form, they just do.

You can do one of three things:

1. Let them heal. They WILL heal naturally, but it will be slow (3-4 months). The problem is, new zits might come up and you'll just had red spots in different places.

2. Use an exfoliator. Some people have said that this helps speed up the process. I've been trying it, it hasn't done much for me yet, but I'm only on my second time doing it. If you don't know what it is, it's basically just a scrub-type soap that you rub in the wash out.

3. Get a chemical peel. These are supposed to make them heal FAST, within one or two peels, but I've never had experience with them.

Re: Red spots?

It actully takes 6 months - 1 year depending on severity. I have a thread going on called "Popular Treatment" that has helped a lot of people fade them away quicker. Give it a try.
