IHATEACNE - I'm currently using Differin...I've been on it for nearly four months, not quite. I'd say it took a good three months to stop getting breakouts. The past couple weeks I've just been getting a zit here and there, nothing too serious. But I think the biggest mistake people make is giving up too early...there's no quick solution to fight acne, it all takes time. So I'd say give it over 12 weeks for sure, maybe longer. As for the red marks - if you tan, don't tan for too long. For a week on a vacation, I spent hours outside (without sunscreen) thinking a good tan would the time it helped some to "mask" the acne, but I still have marks from the acne I had at the time, and that was four months ago. I think if you tan it turns into hyperpigmentation (brown marks), which takes longer to get rid of then just red marks. I'd try an at home peel for marks - right now I'm using the Neutrogena Advanced Solutions peel and after using it 4 times, my marks are starting to fade to the point where you can't notice them unless you're standing within a couple feet of me. Sorry for the lengthy post, hopefully it helps some.
