But what is unacceptable and literally non-erasable are the hideous marks they leave behind. So the first question that comes to the mind once one gets the zits is how long does acne red marks stay?

Statistics show that around 25% of all people who have had acne will suffer from the spots and scars left behind by the pimples.The figure stands at an amazing 20 million Americans who will be afflicted by the pimple caused scars.

The red marks that are caused by acne are often than not a result of the infection and curing progression.
However, the length of time they will stay and when they will disappear is a question that even doctors would hesitate to answer, simply because they do not know.
