Post I have help for Dark marks, Dark spots

Vantex from Fashion Fair is really good for dark marks, spots,.........
It is a spot treatment, and u get red of the dark marks in about 2-3 weeks. With me it works in a week.

Vantex® is a special creme formula for gradual fading of skin discolorations such as freckles, age or liver spots, or dark marks that may occur from pregnancy or from the use of oral contraceptives.

Good luck. And keep posting if it works for u to help others.

What kind of marks did you use them on? Think they would work for dark marks caused from acne?

Yes, they help on marks on acne. I use it for that, but u have to be patient, it takes about 2-3 weeks. But it helps.

I know a lot of people using it.
My niece had marks after acne breakout.She used it for a month and her face is clear from marks.

Good luck

Is this like a peel? I've never heard of anything like this before. Where did you hear about it from?

You don't need this (or any cream) to get rid of the dark marks left by acne. These will go away by themselves within a couple weeks with no help from creams. It's because they are not scars, just discoloration of the very top layer of the skin. Save your money. All these companies make tons of profit by selling creams that promise to do what would naturally occur without any help from any cream. We need to learn to be patient although I can understand that people with these marks would want to try anything to hurry the process along.

I understand that u are saying companys just making money. I am just telling u guys what helped me and it doesnt take so long

The cream for 18 its a lot. And cuz u just treat the spot with that it last long. I have mine over 7 month now and it is still a lot left. Its 2 0z/56.7g

It not just for acne marks, also for discoloration.
And I know it works.

I get red marks from having a pimple that stay for sometimes months after I get a pimple! The pimple is gone but this little flat red spot is still there, I know it's not a pimple because it's all dried out. Not everything just fades away easily. The top layers of your skin have to come off for marks to go away. It depends on how much you exfoliate, how deep the discoloration goes into the layers of the epidermis, and just how fast your skin grows. The bottom most layer is the cell forming region and the cells migrate to the top where they slowly die, until they reach the top where they're just dried up remains of a cell, which is the skin you feel and touch and is constantly coming off. So it could take a long time for the skin carrying a discoloration to reach the top and come off.

Re: I have help for Dark marks, Dark spots

Well, today is my second day using it. I have sun spots on my cheeks that look like big freckles, acne spots, and also a dark spot above my lip that always makes me look like I have a mustache even though I wax it. I will keep everyone posted on how it works for me.
