Anyone know which is the best?

    Are they depressed scars? If so, those products are unlikely to help. You will probably need several TCA peels.

    Hi, I’m also a newbie. I also have scars, and I believe they are “Red Marks”

    Red Marks
    These are the most common type of scar and are a result of the body’s natural healing process. Initially, they may be red or brown and slightly raised but will become paler and flatten naturally over time, resulting in a flat, pale scar. This process can take up to two years.

    like these scars are like from previous pimples that have died out.
    I really have no clue on how I can get rid of these scars are make them look fainter.

    Any help would be appreciated as well.

    Try the tape method. Take scotch tape apply it over red mark areas and press it down gently for 3 seconds then pull right off. Do this twice a week. Really Really helps!

    Lumas do you use the tape method? If so, it doesn’t cause flakeness?
