Dark spot after acne?

Dark spot after acne?

Postinflammatory: Inflammation of the skin is often followed by darkening that may last for months. All acne can be managed today. If benzoyl peroxide (and/or the oral contraceptive pill for a female for whom it's right) doesn't work, topical Clindamycin or some other medicine from your physician will help.

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

No: Usually dark spots corrector is used on dark pigments seen on the hands as women age. Because it is formulated for the spots or lentigos on the hands I would not use it on the face. Acne has an antinflammatory component that aging spots do not have. To avoid possible scarring of the facial skin I would not recommend using it on the face.
