I think your skin is coming along really well!! The redness is good- it means the body is providing a good blood supply to the skin and healing is going on- I definitely wouldn't do another laser!
I agree totally with the other posters who have suggested Retin-a. A bad outbreak of acne left me with many small icepick scars and some shallow depressions. I thought I would have to live with the damage- but after 6 months of Retin-a my skin healed and the scarring became all but invisible. They say you have to give Retin-a six months to work- it was nearly six months for me. The improvements were gradual over the months- but my skin suddenly looked close to normal again after about 5 1/2 months- it almost happened overnight.
Please, please- refuse the laser but ask your derm for some Retin-a! Now would be the time to use it- before your body finishes the healing process. Some of us don't heal properly for some reason which is why we get left with scarring while others get away scar free after acne- I believe Retin-a makes us unlucky ones heal correctly- it is good.
