Post Good answer to pigment spots? (dark spots pimples leave behind)

Does anyone know any good products for pigment spots? (The dark spots that a pimple leaves behind when it is popped or removed prematurely)? I just popped a pimple on my nose and I know it's gonna leave a big one, and I can't have that weeks before school starts.

Any suggestions?

Try using Proactiv's skin lighting lotion if your a member with them or Neutrogena's Multi Vitamin lotion, thats the best bet but doubt it will give you enough time before school starts, just play sick for the next couple months.

retin-a and 5% hydroquinone and st. ives facial scrub should do the trick.

Calamine lotion works good on my red marks.
