    skin lightening cream for red marks

    I have some red marks from previous acne on my cheeks. Some of them have been there for as long as 6 years, so they're not likely to fade! Is there any cream that I can use to help lighten these marks? Would a bleaching cream work, or is that only for brown marks?

    Thanks.

    I have those red marks too, and my derm prescribed a product with a Vitamin A product in it. She says it reduces red marks, and I think it works well. I also use a product with Glycolic acid, it helps a little too. Basically I think the goal is to get rid of the outer layer of skin to allow newer skin to come in.. i think?! Anyone else?

    Hi Smartiegirl,

    What is the name of that product with retin A in it that your derm prescribed? Is it retin A?

    Thanks.

    I also have a few red marks on my skin, maybe from picking at it through the years. My esthetician told me I would need laser to remove it completely but for the time being I'm using dermablend on the red spots before applying my make up and that works for me.

    Hi,
    Proactiv has what they call "skin lightening lotion" which is made for the dark spots left by acne. I am going to order it, I use their other products and have had great results. I have heard really good things about this lightening lotion on other chat boards. The lotion runs 16.95
