But sometimes the settings need to be adjusted. Other lasers that help with redness include KTP, pulsed dye, and IPL. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

1-3 treatments with Kenalog injections by a competent Dermatologist should shrink this down nicely. Quick, inexpensive, very effective.
