Pulsed Dye Laser Post Effects

I am planning to go for pulsed dye laser to treat my red marks left by acne which hasnt gone away for years. I was wondering what would happen to skin following the treatment. Is there any way to ensure that the downtime and side effects are brought to minimum. Thanks

Pulsed dye laser is for redness. I do this in the office with topical anesthetic. The patient usually gets purple for about a week with some swelling and maybe some scabbing. It should be effective for you or anyone that has stretch marks with redness.
