Can the dermapen help with red marks? Or am I better off with lasers?

I have a lot of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. My acne has cleared, but I am self conscious about the red marks. Would derma pen get rid of the red marks or am I better off with lasers?

Lasers way before Dermapen...

As you well know, after Dermapen our skin is redder than before treatment. My suggestion is that you wait for 4 weeks, as redness often settles before then. If redness persists, consult a dermatologist for V Beam laser.
