V-Beam is the best choice

V-Beam is safe and effective for Rosacea and acne.  It is generally a low-risk procedure.  What is important, like all procedures, is to find someone who is comfortable with these lasers and who has experience for years with them.

VBeam is very safe.

I unfortunately cannot answer your question completely without any info on the cause of your redness and bumps.  I can only assume that it may be rosacea.  

Either way, VBeam is very safe, and I have personally only heard of scars when the treatment was for birthmarks.  While scarring could take place for the treatment of rosacea, it is a much lower risk.
