Best Treatment for Surgical Scars (Mostly Flat, Slightly Indented, Red/Purple)?

I had a fascia lata sling put into my face to improve facial paralysis approx 3 1/2 months ago and the muscle was harvested from my leg. i now have 2 4cm long scars on my leg as well as a small scar from where the drain was placed. They have healed quite well, flat and only slightly indented however they still are quite red/purple making them very noticible. What would be the best laser treatment to improve the apperance of these scars?

Pulsed dye laser for red scars on the face and body

These raised red scars are likely best treated with pulsed dye laser. I use the Vbeam laser which works well for this type of reddish scar.
