How do I reduce redness on post acne marks?

New treatments: See a specialist in skin or anti-aging. For example I offer skin treatments using a cutting edge treatment called platelet rich plasma and micro needling. This is basically the same treatment as in the Vampire Facelift and it works GREAT on acne scarring.

When do post acne redness and red marks fade on its own?

Can take awhile: You can get both over-the-counter and prescription-strength creams that will stimulate new skin cell growth to reduce the appearance of scars. These creams often contain Alpha hydroxy acids or salicylic acids, and some contain corticosteroids or antihistamines to help reduce inflammation and itching. Vinegar is a good natural remedy. If these don't work, visit your dermatologist.

None: Nothing is quick. In most cases, good skin comes from consistently taking good care of your skin and body (good nutrition). To reduce the reddness don't pick, rub or scratch the pimples; also if the pimple is open avoid putting anything on it that could irritate it further. In a few days, it won't be nearly as red.

Does the redness caused by acne fade away by itself?

Yes: A red mark is a tiny scar forming following injury, as the tissue remodels. Each is likely to last for around two months. There's little to do about them beyond getting your acne managed by your physician so that they don't continue to form.

How do I eliminate redness left from acne?? Thank you

Dermatologist: Check with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to see what might be the most appropriate treatment for you. There are a lot of options out there depending on what "type" of redness it is. Generally anti-inflammatory creams are a good place to start. Hope that helps!

Is there a good way to make redness/darkness from acne go away?

Is there a good way to make redness/darkness from acne go away?

Prevent new lesions: The red is new blood vessels that you need to heal the injured tissue. The post-inflammatory pigment will fade in a few weeks or months and you can disfigure yourself by trying to remove it. The key is disease control. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
