What to do about inflamed (red) scars?

My acne scars are over 2 years old and the "red marks" have faded. The scars are still very red though and they get worse when I work out or drink alcohol. Back when my scars were fresh my doctor said the healing process would take roughly a year but now it's been over two years and they are still red. I think the color of my acne scars are the worst part since they really aren't that deep.

Are there any creams/gels that can reduce this inflammation/redness? Will the scars ever return to skin color?

I've read about IPL and Vbeam but I'm gonna wait to see if something else can improve it first.
