I have a raised pink scar on my face that is quite noticeable. I do not know how I got it. I seemed to have awoken with it one morning, about 5 years ago. I believe it may have been caused by a laser treatment I was undergoing for acne, that was administered improperly. I am very self conscious about it. Are there any options to at least, permanently diminish the appearance?

Pulsed dye laser for pink or red scars on the face or body skin
Pink or red scars respond favorably to pulsed dye laser, which I frequently use in my Los Angeles plastic surgery office.
