Laser for red acne scars
I typically treat red acne scars with the pulsed dye laser. This is non-invasive and usually helps quite a bit with red acne scars. Examples of pulsed dye laser include the Cynergy and the V-Beam lasers. I usually do more than one treatment session for best results, spaced about three weeks apart.
V Beam Perfecta for red acne scars is the best treatment
Red acne scars do well with the Candela's VBeam perfecta Laser-- which is the "go to laser" for anything red. Do a search for the laser itself and find a physician in your area that has that particular laser.
Acne scars, some are red, some PIH
You have some red scars and some pigmented scars. Red scars respond to the Excel V or VBeam laser. The other scars require peels, hydroquinone, and Infini. Sometimes PRP, laser resurfacing, micropen is helpful too.
