How to fade post picking marks

I have a lot of red marks on my face from picking (some from months ago) they aren't deep just red pigmentation on my face. How do I fade it or are these marks permanent?

Hi...I suggest salicylic acid preparations (BHA). I use Paula's Choice Resist 4% BHA at night before bed.

Try primrose oil every night. Use it on the entire area especially when itching. Good luck. God Bless
