Will the red burn marks left from a Palomar Non Ablative Fractional Laser heal ?

I had a Palomar Fractional Non Ablative laser treatment done 7 weeks ago. I have healed considerably more since this photo was taken and I am no longer peeling or scabbing. However the red burn marks still remain, just lighter. The area feels ok to touch but when I try to cover it with make-up it looks dry and crusty and can't be hidden properly under concealer. Gentle exfoliation is making no difference and no visible flaking is occurring any more at all.  I am using a repair serum that I purchased when I had a different laser treatment done 2 years ago. It contains omega fatty acids, raspberry seed oil, vit E, blueberry seed oil, calendula oil & potassium sorbate. New lines are also visible which many people on here have complained about, yet practitioners that respond keep saying it isn't possible, none the less, they are definitely there. I cannot use bleaching creams, natural or chemical as they burn my skin. I was wondering if I should consider the candela gentlase pro to remove the pigmentation? I have had this treatment in the past for light brown pigmentation and it worked very well with no side effects. It was all healed within 7 days. However I don't think the remaining reddish marks are classed as pigmentation, I think they are just faded burn marks. Is there any-thing I can do to remove these red burn marks? They are no where near as dark as this photo any-more, but are in the exact same area. Any help will be much appreciated as I'm not sure what to do from here. I haven't been back to the clinic as yet as I'm not confident in any treatment plans to rectify this. I have read many stories on here stating that follow up treatments have made things much worse, so I'm not rushing into any-thing yet. For example fat loss seems to be a common side effect of over treated areas. Very nervous and trying not to panic.
