Re: Is there ANYTHING that will cure red marks?
My derm told me only time will heal redmarks. To prevent new ones, don't pop em. They will dry up and leave no redmark...not touching your face at all throughout the day is key at not getting any popped, even when there at that final stage like after a wash when they can probably just be rubbed a little, or barely squeezed...DONT. :P
Any redmarks from un-popped pimples last days not months. I also found out that i stopped getting cysts and inflamed pimples when i stopped touching, popping and squeezing my face. Try it for a month and see a huge difference, it takes time..
Chemicals peels can probably speed up the process a little, because your face is renewing at a faster rate.
Also exfoliating 3-4 times will not help, that can actually hurt your face. 1-2 times a week is plenty for exfoliation. Sorry to tell you, but those marks are here to stay...all you can do is wait them out, and be careful not to make any more.
Trust me i understand completely...my face has cleared awesome...but i have tons of redmarks, because i couldn't stand a whitehead on my face, so i popped everyone of them, even the cysts. Hang in there, redmarks are still better than active pimples right? :P Remember you see your face everyday, it probably doesn't look as bad as you think.
