Are lasers the only way to treat post acne marks that are red (no indents or holes)? Can peels be effective also?

Red Acne Scars
The V-Beam laser is the best method to treat red acne scars. The V-Beam is still considered the gold standard laser. I also use the IPL for overall redness and pigmentation as well. Peels are great but do not work on the redness. Please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in lasers for the best cosmetic results.
