I Had Laser Work Done 6 Weeks Ago for Spider Veins on my Legs, How do I Get Rid of these Red Marks? (photo)

I had laser work done 6 weeks ago for spider veins on my legs. I still have red marks that I'm afraid might be scars. I started applying vitamin E a few days ago, and I'm wondering if Retin A would help? Is there anything else I can do?

  Applying RetinA would not be a great idea, it may even increase the redness. I would recommend avoiding sun exposure. Redness should gradually resolve Dr. Hotchandani
