You need a formal evaluation as there are options with vascular lasers, LED therapy, and skin care to help calm the inflammation. You are still healing and needs it to be formally evaluated. Typically I do non ablative fractional like clear and brilliant or fraxel or viva 4-6 weeks after co2 to improve this, prp and microneedling as well.  Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
