Yes, V-Beam (and other vascular lasers and light sources such as IPL) can do very well to remove red marks resulting from acne.  Full results usually require 3 or more treatments spaced one month apart.

Vbeam is great way to help getting rid of red marks from acne.  The more treatments you get, the better the laser will work for you.  Depending on your skin type and the number of times you have the Vbeam done, you may see almost perfect results.

The Vbeam is very useful for improving redness caused by acne.  It is hard to say without seeing a photo as to how many treatments would be necessary.  The intensity of the treatment will also determine the response.

It's difficult to know if V-beam laser treatments will remove your red acne marks completely.  It may, or it may just improve them.  Your skin type and the amount of redness you have could influence your result.  The V-beam generally does work well to treat red areas of the face, so I think it would be a worthwhile treatment for you.
