Post Reddish spots leftover from pimples

After a pimple heals, there is always that lingering little red spot leftover. Eventually, it fades, but it takes forever. Are there any products out there that help it to fade faster? I use the Proactiv lightening lotion and I don't think it's that great (and I swear by other Proactiv products). I've also read that lemon can do the trick too, but I haven't tried it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem actually. After a pimple goes away, there'll be this kind of mark on my face. Not always red, but kinda a dark blackish/brownish mark on my face. My mom and aunt always say "dont mess with your pimples, otherwise it will leave a mark" and it never happened to me before until the last couple months, because I can't help but mess with them because i HATE pimples.
