Laser vs Time
As a guide, laser will fade the marks over 3 months, whilst leaving them alone ... marks will fade within 6-12 months.
Video as a guide below explaining the treatments.

Red Marks from Acne
The redness that you are describing can happen after acne. Typically patients with acne either heal red or brown depending on their skin type. The lighter complexions typically heal with redness, PIE, and the darker complexions typically heal darker with PIH. The marks eventually go away but it can take many months to go away. The V-Beam Laser will remove these red marks quickly and heal those areas up quickly. In the meanwhile Dermablend makeup is a very good makeup to help hide acne scars.
