I have very light red marks from previous burns. How can I remove them? (photos)

I have very light red marks on my skin from burns (curling iron) about a year ago. They have faded but are still there. I also have a red birthmark. None of these are raised. Photofacials have not been effective on these red spots. Mederma has not helped either. Is there a procedure specifically for red scars that are not raised or red birthmarks to remove them?

For persistent redness--- such as from scars, Rosacea, spider veins, or vascular birthmarks and Port-Wine Stains, the Pulsed-Dye Laser is the gold standard of treatment.  Your red marks should respond readily to this treatment.
