Red Marks from Acne and what to do about These types of scars
Laser treatments for erythema and texture
Once the skin has stopped breaking out and there is some residual redness or erythema I like to treat this first and then target any textural changes. I typically use the V beam laser which is excellent for addressing vascularity or redness. Usually 1- 3 treatments are needed to give you an optimal result. Scars change over the course of about a year and change from a pink / red scar to a more "mature" or white scar during that time. Mild textural changes or scarring can be improved with a fractional laser treatment once the redness has resolved and the scar has "matured".
