Why does my acne take longer to heal on my cheeks than forehead?

My acne takes forever to heal on my cheeks because of the red spots the pimples leave. Its weird, the acne i get on my forehead goes away in less than a week tops... Could it be that there is less bloodflow to my cheeks than forehead or is there another solution to my problem. Btw, i got a hickey before on my cheek and it took 3-4 months to fade. I think my cheeks may just heal slow or something...

Hi!
My derm said that the bloodflow to the forehead is a lot gteater than anywhere else on the face, so things will heal better!
