Vascular laser

Or resistant redness a vascular laser or Ipl can decrease residual redness. There is neovascularization . These expanded vessels can be improved with the pulse dye, 577 yellow laser, or 1064 yag laser.

Redness from Peel

It sounds as if you have irritation or redness from the chemical peel.  The redness can be reduced with the V-Beam laser which is fabulous at getting rid of redness.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr.Green
