Products to help redness left behind by acne scaring?

I used to have really bad cystic acne and that’s gone now, but I have some blotchy redness over my cheeks that looks like it was caused by the scaring from all those spots I had over so many years. A derm said it’s not rosecea. Genetics might be a factor too, but scaring definitely made it worse. Has anyone found a product that helped with that? I’ve found products that helped a little and faded some specific PIE spots (tagged below), but there’s still some stubborn pigmentation left behind. Vit C and ninaciamine haven’t seemed to help. Keeping my skin super moisturized has helped a bit I think because it creates an environment my skin can heal in, but again, there’s some really stubborn blotchy redness still on my cheeks that drives me nuts. Hopefully someone out there has dealt with this and found a solution.

Thank you! I tried Azelaic acid a really long time ago with no results, but I think I should give it another shot

There’s so much hype for this as a product for redness but it didn’t work at all for me. Is there a trick to application or something?

i didn’t used this as a moisturizer,i applied this after moisturizer more like a spot treatment and then blend it(usually i put like a small dot on 1 each scar),and to help soothe i used niacinamide essence,soothing toner,soothing sheetmask

which vitamin C have you tried? it is to recommend knowing what didn't work for you. I find zinc, centella asiatica works for me since they speed up healing process

I used to use the Klairs vitamin drop but I’ve been using the Neogen vit C for the past five or so months. Are there any specific centella and zinc products you’ve liked?
