Is the Vbeam Perfecta Laser Good to Get Rid of Red Marks Left from Acne? (photo)

I've had these red marks/discoloration left from acne for about 3 months and haven't seen much improvement. Would the laser do any good? how many sessions do you think I would need?

V Beam Laser for redness and acne

The VBeam laser is the gold standard for any vascular issues or redness in the face. In my practice, we use it on all surgical scars to reduce scars and redness and to accelerate the healing process. The Vbeam will not cure acne, but it helps to soften scars, and it can eliminate redness

The VBeam is tried and true for this particular problem. It takes about 3 sessions to get the improvement but everyone is different. It also helps with ongoing acne. Steve Weiner, MD, Destin, Panama City Beach, FL
