Resolved Question:

I'm 16 and for about half a year I've had these red lines that have gone from the corner of my eye around in an almost curve along my cheek bone (I apologise for the poor explanation) but I've looked online and there's really not much I can find on it??

Thats a photo showing it but in some light it is much worse.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
it is very faint in the photo
that could be rosacea on your cheeks which can cause redness and acne type changes.
some types of rosacea can get better as you get older.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I just looked at what rosacea is but I do not believe that is what it is due to my cheeks being normal colour but just one red line. It's exactly like the red lines you get on your stomach, but on my cheeks.I've never seen this before so I am very confused.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
it could be the normal fold of your nasal labial fold on your face.
that is a normal line on your face.
some people call it a smile line.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is there any way to get rid of them or make them less noticeable?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
you can use facial exfoliation to help
you can try facial scrubs.
you can always see a cosmetic dermatologist to talk about facial peals and more cosmetic facial options
