Symptoms: Brown marks on face

 

 

Doctor: Post-acne blemishes can be treated by various medications available in the market, under prescription of a qualified doc tor. Since, some of these medications produce photosensitivity, it is advisable to use them at bed time only (consult your doctor before using). Most of these ointments take 6-8 weeks for producing noticeable benefit. So be patient and consult a Dermatologist for advice.
