Re: Purple mark after spot disappears

Hi there, thank you for your question. The best way to minimise acne scarring is to reduce the incidence of acne appearing in the first place. This includes using acne face wash/ prescription creams if necessary - your GP or Dermatologist can advise on the best one for your skin type. When you do get a spot, try not to squeeze it as this can cause inflammation to worsen and increase the possibility of redness
Niacinamide is a helpful antiinflammatory ingredient that is helpful for acne that you can purchase over the counter (4% Nicam gel). Always read the package instructions before using.

Best wishes
