hello everyone. I'm a 21 year old male with extremely sensitive skin. when I was 13 I had heavy acne. Throughout the years, I foolishly picked them off my face. It left my face covered with multiple red marks. Some lightened with time but many remained. I especially got this oval shaped red mark (extremely dark) in the middle of my nose. I been using a concealer but even that peels off in the sun. I'm also getting those light brown marks on my arms. If you know an effective product that will lighten and/ or clear up these marks I will be eternally greatful. I been dealing with this problem for close to a decade and I can't get close near a mirror without being ashamed.

For red marks about the only permanent treatment is VBeam laser in the hands of a good provider...not cheap.

Brown spots are most likely sun damage. You need to first use a good quality sun block. There are some peels that people have reported success with brown spots. These would be, most likely, performed in a doctor's office. Ruby laser is also successful with removing brown spots. Lastly, a topical product made by Obagi called Clear. You can sometimes get it over the net without a RX or get it at a dr's office. It has 4% HQ which is the only topical proven to get rid of brown.

All the above treatments are not guaranteed, they are simply the most successful.

Obagi is a good suggestion. I've never tried it, but you should take a look at the photos that TAMgirl posted. Her after photos are amazing, her skin is so clear and radiant. http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=23934&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

i am still in the quest to fade my acne scars and banish acne all together!

but as suggested by Diana, definately look in TAMgirls thread on obagi...cos i was amazed by the before and after pics.

i am certainly interested in this line but cos i read that the skin goes red, flaky and dry when using it and the dangers of HQ, im a bit unsure.

there are many threads here about fading red marks, do a search and a million will pop up!

For red marks left after blemishes, the only thing I've used that I've found has made a slight difference has been using an aspirin mask. I've tried so many products to get rid of the red marks, but now I think I'd rather try a laser treatment to get rid of them rather than spend more money and time on products.

I'm currently trying out Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and DDF's Intensive Holistic Lighten
I'm not sure if it's coincidence or not, however I think the Caudalie may be causing a slight breakout, BUT these little annoyances aren't leaving dark marks as their previous counterparts had. I have noticed lightening of previous brown spots from old acne scars. The serum feels like a light moisturizer, and the smell is okay. The first few times it made my face feel a little tingly (I have super oily skin) but over a few days it sort of dries out the dark spots, so it looks like a scab from a burn or something...sort of hard to describe...but once I exfoliate, I was surprised to find the spot had lightened. I've only been using it for a week and a half, so I'll update once I figure out whether this is causing the breakout or not. It's not supposed to have purging qualities, but I tend to have severely acne-prone skin (i can get a pimple just by looking at my skin funny!)
I also got some samples of the DDF but I've only used that on a few spots...will see how this goes...
